COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A hop lover’s delight, this American India Pale Ale is brewed with over 1.5 lbs. of hops per barrel. As with all IPAs, this beer is higher in alcohol, hop aroma and bitterness than regular pale ales, and you don’t have to sail to India to enjoy it.

Retains a nice head. Golden color, lighter than average. Harsh, strongly bitter. An IPA, no doubt, but not the most sophisticated interpretation.

Nate (3549) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2002
A weak but very pleasant hops aroma. Golden red amber with nice white lacing head. Medium body and carb. Really nice bitterness. Awesome hops and weak malt flavor. Bitter finish and after. Very refreshing. Once I tried this, I stuck with it for the rest of the evening. A really nice IPA.

Not a bad thirst quencher but this is what happens when you brew an IPA without sufficent malt character. This brew has plenty of bold hops but lacks the malt to balance the hop assualt. A little more malt character and this could be a fine beer but without it its merely average.

Sharp and biting hop presence with nice fruit bitterness. Underlying sweetness as well. Nice brew.
