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.

Clear golden pour with a thick tight head. The nose is fruity with a kiss of light spicy. EKG and cascades on the top (which seem to actually work together). Very clean with a nice soft malt/hop balance. Peppery and chewy. Lightly resinous - it’s a decent simple IPA.

This is the second beer enjoyed at the Logan Airport Boston Beer Works. The IPA was better than the APA. The head was bigger and frothy white. The color was clear and golden in appearance. The higher alcohol was noticed. The hops flavors of citrus were present with lemon and orange. Smooth finish with some bitterness.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 8, 2010
on tap at the brewpub, pours light amber, thin off white head. Aroma is strong citrus and pine hops. Flavor is metallic, kind of off bread malt flavor with a strong pine hop finish that is very dry.

nickd717 (4165) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 23, 2010
On tap at Boston Beer Works - Logan Airport. Pours a clear golden-copper color with an average white head. Aroma is pretty nice and hoppy. Grassy and floral with a little citrus and some pilsner malt to back it up. Flavor is pale malt along with a nice hop profile, with grapefruit and grass standing out. Good bitterness level and not too sweet. Great palate, medium-bodied and crisp with fairly lively carbonation. A surprisingly good IPA from a brewery I’d never heard of before going there.

Went to the brewpub after bosox/la game with clients. Nice ipa, full bodied with a solid malty base. Better than I expected.

Lubiere (12878) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2010
A light golden IPA with a thin big bubbled white head. In aroma, nice light floral hops over smooth citrus. In mouth, a nice floral assails you, lingering, a bit bilous. Overall, a bit thin, needing a bit more malt, but good. On tap at Lowell BW, Jan. 10 2009.

A golden IPA with a thin white head. Lightly hopped aroma, very restrained. In mouth, a decent IPA, with sustained final hops, but lacking in malts and body. Overall, run of the mill and simple. On tap at Fenway brewpub, Oct. 12 2008.

(Draught, Canal Street) Poured amber and clear with medium sized white head. Aroma contained hops with soap, fruitiness and grass. Palate was of medium body and with medium carbonation. Tasted of bitteness, hops, grass and fruitiness. Aftertaste was mainly bitter.
