COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the 1700ís one crafty brewer discovered that a healthy dose of hops and an increased alcohol content perserved his ales during the long voyage to India (as depicted in our label) to quench the thirst of British troops. Today, we tip our hat to that historic innovation by brewing Coloradoís hoppiest pale ale. Avery IPA demands to be poured into your favorite glass to truly appreciate the citrusy, floral bouquet and the rich, malty finish. Brewed by hopheads for hopheads!

A very nice pale IPA. This one is easy to drink with a nice hop kick at the end. I would call this a "session" IPA if anything. Wonderfully citrus nose, but just lacks a bit of fullness on the tongue. Nicely done in any case.

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - DEC 22, 2004
Pours an amber/gold color with a small but lasting head. Citrus and grapefruit aroma, not much malt. Taste fruity, bitter, very light malt, and like PorterPounder I do sense an essence of mint at the very end of the long, bitter finish. Interesting beer, not world class--could use some more malt backbone--but quite quaffable if I do say so myself.

$5.99 6pack. Very nice IPA. Golden body with white head. Hard to pass this up and will always have a few in the fridge.

PorterPounder (5758) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2004
Had on tap at the Ginger Man in Austin, Tx. Medium copper pour, decent white head, fair amount of lacing. Typical west coast grapefruity hoppiness, which is expected and not unappreciated, itís just that these are all tasting quite the same - but will not mark this one down for that!. An excellent example of the style - clean, crisp and sharp, like a West Coast IPA should be. A bit of light spearmint undertone separates this one from the mases. Good example of the Amercian IPA style.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2005 Served in bottle, had to ask for glass. Stupid waitress lost a bit on the tip for that one. Anyway, pours amber/brown with a small white head. Not an over the top IPA. Good session IPA. Slight malt with earthy hop with average bitterness. Mild grapefruit. Well made beer.

shadey (1927) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 11, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2005 The pour was orange with a MASSIVE rocky head that looked closer to the froth on a milk shake than a beer. Nice hop aroma but nothing else. The flavor was standard IPA with a sharp hop bite in the begining.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 3, 2004
Very light hop aroma, very light color, didnít look to promising but the taste was 98% hop, not overwhelming but devoid of any malt taste and a nice treat for a hophead like myself

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - NOV 25, 2004
Poured a clear amber with a medium ized long lasting white head. A big citrus aroma, grapefruit and mandarins. Flavor lightly malty sweet with the middle and end hoopy and bitter. Medium bodied and slightly silky.

These hops donít mess around. They grab you and donít let go until well after the last drop. Drink carefully and appreciate.

I dont know what to say. could it be that i havent had an IPA in so long, or is it really this good? Huge, wet hops in the nose. the taste was medium bodied thats just awashed with fresh hops. its so chewy and bitter, bready bitterness like a fresh batch of bread dipped in grass shavings. the hop assault doesnt let up.
