(I.P.A). was developed in England around 1800; the extra strength in alcohol and hops helped preserve the beer on its long export journeys to India and beyond. The style has developed a following worldwide. Ours begins with smooth, malty creaminess and a big burst of dry-hop flavor and aroma from a variety of American hops. It finishes with a lingering yet pleasant bitterness. Is it Overboard? You decide.

Boutip (5357) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 1, 2015
Bottle: Poured a light orange color ale with a nice foamy head with good retention and some light lacing notes. Aroma of citrus hops notes with dry malt base. Taste is also dominated by citrus hops notes with light bitter notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Old school IPA with maybe a little shortage on the hops flavours side of things.

Impressive tropical fruit aroma in a golden amber pour. Flavour is similarly fruity without becoming sweet. Restrained finish is crisp and clean. Probably the best of the local (Hawaii) brews I’ve had so far.

On tap at lava lava. A very hoppy IPA and also very good. The best Hawaiian beer I have had. A very good IPA regardless of where it was brewed. Hoppy flowery smell with a nice sweet hoppy taste:

Orange pour from 22oz bottle in Honolulu. Tons of foamy white head. Juicy Orange fruity happiness. Super fruity. Delicious. Not much hops for an ipa. But defiantly an iPa

Bottle thanks to my lovely wife. Pours a hazy amber color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is grassy with a little citrus coming off there. Taste is actually quite light and moderately bitter, with a crisp citrus finish that fades into a smooth and slightly toasty beer. Quite enjoyable.
