COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our version of India Pale Ale. Brewed with European Malts and Northwest Hops and then generously Dry Hopped with Cascade Hops for a nice citrus finish. Truly a Salvation for all Hop Heads!

Hazy blond color. A quite easy Pale Ale, dryish, but with a fairly strong hopping.

bhensonb (11260) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 23, 2008
Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Pours bright gold with a 7-finger head. Aroma is somewhat yeasty malt over resin and fruity hops. Medium plus body with very smooth, soft carbonation. Flavor is pine and citrus. The malt is rather subdued. A whole heck of non-harsh hop. Nice bitter finish. Itís like not all that bitter, but itís all that bitter.

Tmoney99 (10820) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Draft sample at MBGF. Hazy dark amber color with a large frothy off-white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Moderate hoppy citrus aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Medium bitter flavor with a medium bitter finish of short duration.

hopscotch (9242) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2007
Bottle... Mostly clear golden ale with a mid-sized, fizzy, off-white head. The nose presents heaps of honey, crystal and biscuity malts and earthy hops. Well-balanced, earthy flavor. Sweet toffee and bitter, tannic grapefruit roughage. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with lively carbonation. Crisp, bitter, tongue-numbing (Novocaine-like) finish.

daknole (9226) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 1, 2008
Bottle from strykzone. Pours an amberish/gold color with a medium sized whitish head. Aromas of malt, honey, cider and some mild hops. Flavor is sweet and lacks any big IPA punch. It isn’t a horrible beer, just not a good representation of the style.

hopdog (9018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2007
12oz bottle acquired in trade with Degarth (thanks!). Poured a medium and slightly hazy yellow color with a larger sized head. Aromas of citrus and a little biscuity. Tastes of citrus and a little grassy. Nice grapefruit bitter finish. Thinner body.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 4, 2008
Good lord, this is a gusher. Bottle from Degarth. Pours a slighly hazy peach color with a head of epic proportions. Retention is also epic. Will I ever get to drink this? Good lord, I just noticed I still have two thirds in the bottle! See you in half an hour! Well, that was really only like 25 minutes, and once all the head on the sides of the bottle condenses Iíll probably have another sip or two. Aroma is honey-ish with a floral hop profile. Smells really nice to be but that might be because Iím freaking thirsty by now. Major citrus... kind of like eating a grapefruit. The honey-like sweetness is in the taste as well. Thin mouthfeel and the aftertaste is a bit too bitter. A little bit off balance.

Dogbrick (8259) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Pours a deep golden color with a medium ivory colored head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing. Light pine and citrusy hops in the nose. Light-bodied and crisp with mildly bitter hops and citrus flavors. Some pale malt is present as well. The finish is short and mildly bitter with a light hoppy aftertaste. Overall this is a one-dimensional IPA that I would not bother with again.
