Brewed as a medium India Pale Ale, this full-flavored moderately hopped beer has the strongest hop character of our ales. Made for hopheads and new beer aficionados. The grist composition is 94% Pale malt, with the remaining grain bill consisting of carastan malts. The finishing Mt. Hood hop addition in the whirlpool gives this beer a good hop character without becoming excessively bitter. The beer is fined instead of filtered so the hop character is not stripped away.

FlacoAlto (4152) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 27, 2003
Tastes of american hops. Slight Grapefruit taste, finishes nicely bitter, deffinitely not over the top for an IPA. Fairly malty with a hint of sweetness. A nice work horse of an IPA. A nice amber color, with a slight amount of chill haze.

Crit (3840) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2003
At the Festival they called it IPA, and it certainly seemed to be one.Citrus hop nose. Good grapefruit hop profile. Not sure I had the same beer as most of the other ratings.

Aurelius (5094) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 12, 2003
Fairly dry, spicy-hopped AIPA. Nice big glass mug this comes in. Bronze beer, lighter than their amber beer, and less brown. Citrus fruity, hoppy, with a loooong hoppy finish. Hoppy/fruity APA aroma with a tinge of smoke.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - MAY 8, 2003
Tap at Dallas location. Average looking amber. Nice subtle spice in the taste. Not much like an IPA at all - like every other beer in this place it was VERY lacking in hops. Still drinkable; ginger was apparent in the finish.

Sampled draught at Humperdinks, Dallas, Texas.
Reddish amber. Intensely hoppy nose with notes af aromatic oils, flower and citrus. Not much malt there to balance it, but considering the poor malt structure of the other beers at this brewery probably it's a good thing that the pleasant hop flavours just lingers on into a long bitter finish and bypasses the (lack of) body. I quite enjoyed this beer.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2003
They served this as an IPA and I thought to myself why would they call an IPA a big red beer. Smooth and slightly bittersweet but nothing to write home about here in the finish. Just boring beer.

Nice head, good appearance. Hoppy all the way through. An acceptable IPA, but not exceptional. Dallas Greenville Avenue location.

Nuffield (4083) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2002
This was served to me as ’Big Red IPA’. Generous head, sticking to the glass all the way. Mild floral aroma, subdued by promising. Rather hoppyon the whole (compared to the drivel on the rest of the beer menu here), with tongue-curdling bitterness growing in the finish. Creamy palate, smooth, not unlike an English bitter. I liked this the best of all the beers I had at the Humperdink’s Big Horn in Dallas. (on tap at Greenville Ave., Dallas location)

Ernest (7373) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2002
Draught. Body is light amber. Aroma is moderately hoppy (grapefruit), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. I’d personally put this in the APA category, but who cares?
