Among my favorite IPAs. Yes, I am quite biased in favor of Great Lakes Brewing Company because one of my best friends worked there for nine years and I've spent many a fine afternoon/evening at the place. But my preference for GLBC beer is primarily because the beers are almost always outstanding. Cheers!

I like IPA's. They seem to be my style of choice since I've grown to accustomed to bold hoppy flavors. That being said I'm not that big on English IPA's.
This is a good version of the English IPA though I believe the ABV's are a bit high.
In this version the aroma is malty and sweet with a sutle floral hop presence.
The apperance is a lighter amber and is quite clear. The head produced on the pour was small and faded quickly.
Taste is malty for the most part, caramel malts and toffee. Hops are light and for the most part really just bitter the beer.
Drinks medium on the palate but I've noticed that after the dry bitterness, some astringency.
Overall it's a good representation of the style. I think it would be quite nearly dead on if it was casked.
