Is this an impossible category? With "pale ale" below it and "imperial IPA" above it, have we made it impossible to make a respectable IPA? Why does everyone say this is "pretty good" or "enough" or "ok" or "nice?" Stop chanting íGo big or go homeí this is a real IPA. It is balanced, it doesnít overwhelm you with hops. It paints the hop aroma over good hop flavor and balances it with hop bitterness all on a canvas of malt support. You know what? Nothings wrong with that. Nothing.

Rich yellow-gold with a generous head. Smell is understated and includes hay, nutty bread, crisp floral hops. Good body, slightly sweet caramel malts with savory vegetable notes and a long bitter finish.

Can pours orange with golden hints with a persistent head. This is a well-balanced IPA: not too malty; not too hoppy. Overall, a classic IPA.

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home after a long stretch of work in the early spring. Happy that this brewery finally made it to Chicago! Appearance is a clearish darkened gold with a frothy and full white head that nicely laces to the glass. Aroma is citrusy and hoppy, with a touch of pine, smells great. Taste goes down very well, one of the better IPAís Iíve had of late, full bodied and flavorful, Iíve had more bitter beers and feel this one balances out quite well. Very enjoyable.

Amber with white head and gorgeous lacing. Aroma at once sweet and biscuity . Flavor starts sweet citrus, then goes bitter for a while. Lacks balance, but not a bad beer.

Hoop dat dit de goede is, op dr kaart stond alleen "21st amendment ipa" Niet zoín sterke geur. Dun schuim, goede kleur. Smaakt als een lekkere IPA. Bitter, maar niet te, en wel fris.

Martinus (3488) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2015
Golden colour, white head. Aroma of hops, apricot, tropical fruits, malts. Malty flavour, light bitter hops, straw and malts. Quite bitter finish. Nice brew, feels a bit old, but keeping up well. Rating 3456.

On draft. Amber pour. Waaaaay too sweet at the start of the pint, served to cold. It still is way to sweet by the end but it is at least a nice drinkable east coast style ipa with tons of malt but also some hops.

Can. Enjoy by 6/12/15. These usually have a 5 month convention. So Iím going with almost 3 months old. Which is probably too old for an IPA. Funny that this beer has only been sold in illinois for 3 days and itís too damn old. Maybe it would be better fresher, but the brewer stamps 5 months on the can so Iíll play dumb and assume itís still in itís prime. In short. Itís garbage. In long. Stale hops that taste like dandelions. A strong overly sweet pale malt. Crap, donít buy.
