I am betting that the title means this is their own little version of the India Pale Ale that beer drinkers know and love, and which microbreweries love to duplicate, but are rarely successful at. Including this one. Don't get me wrong, though. This is a good beer. It is slightly bitter (a real IPA tastes like your drinking something filtered directly through a hop leaf), with a flavor good for an Autumn day. Just don't expect the hop flavor to knock your socks off. If you want to work your way up to the real IPA's, then try this.
