India Pale Ale is a beer style that’s increasingly popular with both craft brewers and beer geeks throughout the United States. By now, you might even say it’s mainstream in microbrew circles.

The style was originally developed for the long journey from Great Britain to their troops in India.

Because beer spoils easily without refrigeration, brewers had no choice but to load up on hops, a natural preservative. To balance that move, they added more malt, which upped the alcohol, the other natural preservative.

You get to enjoy it because we like to brew a big, bold beer. Lucky you.

b3shine (8109) - Indiana, USA - APR 26, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks good; a slightly hazy golden blonde with eggshell head. Smells solid; loads of Centennial hops with a medium-bodied pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Could be dryer, but enjoyable nonetheless.

JStax (5214) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2013
Nitro draft pour. Pours a translucent straw color with a thick, creamy white head of foam. I get a lot of tropical fruits in the aroma with some pineapple and mango coming through. A nice balance of bitterness in the taste and a dryish finish. Somewhats tacky mouthfeel, but still creamy. Good beer.

phaleslu (9380) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Draft in a sampler at Barley’s #1. Pours a cloudy gold color with a small, lasting white head. Aroma of mint, citrusy hops, and sweet malts along with a little snap of grass and herbs. Very clean and fresh. Same for the flavor, which had some clean, bright citrusy hop notes, mint, straw, grass, and pale and sweet malts. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a refreshingly crisp mouthfeel. A pleasant surprise, the first one on the sampler to really jump out at me.
