COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(I.P.A). was developed in England around 1800; the extra strength in alcohol and hops helped preserve the beer on its long export journeys to India and beyond. The style has developed a following worldwide. Ours begins with smooth, malty creaminess and a big burst of dry-hop flavor and aroma from a variety of American hops. It finishes with a lingering yet pleasant bitterness. Is it Overboard? You decide.

Bottle thanks to my lovely wife. Pours a hazy amber color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is grassy with a little citrus coming off there. Taste is actually quite light and moderately bitter, with a crisp citrus finish that fades into a smooth and slightly toasty beer. Quite enjoyable.

Bottle shared by Allen, thanks! Pours a near clear golden orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of bitter citrus with a hint of resin and a bread backbone. Flavor has same bitter citrus with a good amount of grass and a light grain.

On tap at lava lava. A very hoppy IPA and also very good. The best Hawaiian beer I have had. A very good IPA regardless of where it was brewed. Hoppy flowery smell with a nice sweet hoppy taste:
