COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

I had this on tap at C.B. & Potts in Broomfield, CO. This is a nice, medium, hoppy IPA. It was enjoyable.

Pours hazy golden with a small, nicely lacing white head. Nose is mellow grapefruit hops, faint creamy malt. Strong grapefruit hops flavor that segues into a short biscuity malt middle and finishes with a long, bitter finish that continues to taste of citrus. Pretty good.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2007 Arlington Location- A very nice example of an American IPA. It’s good to be able to find good brews around here, and Humperdinks is one of the few places you can find them. This one pours an amber with little white head. Fairly high carbonation gives this a drier palate than would otherwise be. Bitterness is clean and balanced. My only complaint is a lack of hop flavor, dry hopping should have been used more. A great IPA.

Sample glass @ C I Shenanigans. Solid not overpowering hop aroma. Dark amber. Thick head. Hops grow on you. Nice fruitiness; melon and citrus.

riversideAK (5574) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2008
Golden orange color. Nice Pacific Northwest Hop aroma. Smells a little uniquely fruity too. Flavors of floral, pine, and pepper w pale malts and a little fruity sweetness. Finishes a little spicy. I enjoyed this one quite a bit.

dnstone (2126) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Floral hop aroma. Oramge-amber in color. Hoppy and caramel malty taste. A real clean finish, almost like an amber ale. Notes: Pub visit during ’09 GABF

nuplastikk (4268) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 13, 2014
Sampler at Schaumburg. Far and away the best beer I had at Ram. Big grapefruit rind hop tones. Easy drinking, with a steady classic NW hop bill. Nice to end the otherwise lackluster sampler with. Right on.
