COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
So named because it had to endure long sea voyages from breweries in England to outposts on the fringes of the British Empire. IPA is a high alcohol, well-hopped brew to enable it to last the voyage and not spoil. 50 IBU's, 15.38 Plato, 6.3% ABV

From tap at the brewpub. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is roasted malt, hoppy and fruity. Good malt flavour base to a solid hoppy fruity flavour lingering into a dry hoppy finish.

Ungstrup (29474) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. A golden-amber beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of lemon and some malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of spicy hops, leading to a very bitter spicy hoppy finish. A bit raw in the hops.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2009
On tap. Clear deep golden with an off-white head. Some hops in the nose. Medium body, lightly burned caramel and a distinct peachy hoppiness that leave a solid bitterness. 250709

bhensonb (11248) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Nice citrus/floral hop aromas, though served so cold it needed to sit a bit to really get the aroma. Very pale gold color with a lightly ring lacing head. Medium body; moderate carbonation. Flavor seems to be citrus hop. Enough hop that it has a rather harsh impact*. There really seems to be a lot of hop, and this is not the DIPA. Im sure theres malt in there, but it is simply overwhelmed. This one is worth going out of the way for. *This was not a reason to lower the palate number; my mouth liked it.

Lubiere (10139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2006
Lightly hazed pale gold with resilient white head. Light floral honey hops with citrus notes. In mouth, light on malt, with lots of c-hops, and good grapefruits in finale. Lighter bodied IPA. Nice. On tap at BP, August 2005.

3fourths (8100) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2009
UPDATED: APR 29, 2009 Bottle.
Appearance: Faintly hazed nutty dark orange.
Nose: Fusel burnt popcorn and olive oil covered nuts. Moderately spicy/peppery, but the infection is evident. Terrible.
Body: Medium thickness for the style, oily at times, diacetyl is obvious.
Flavor: fusel grains and sour caramel malt, no depth, goes from unremarkable and boring when cold to downright gut-wrenching when at proper serving temperature. Olive oil, truffle oil, diesel, bad bad bad.

Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2009
Bomber pours deep clear gold with thin white head. The aroma is moderate with malty sweetness, some modest citrus, spice and a touch of earthiness. The taste has a pulse of lemon tartness moving into citrus, a bit of grassiness, pine and a sense of floral hops. It has a nice backbone of malts. Decent enough IPA but thin and seems a bit lacking in depth.

DuffMan (6865) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 14, 2010
750ml bottle, shared with Parksy. Hazy honey gold, zesty citrus and biscuity malt aroma and flavours, more aromatic than bitter. Quick bitter finish. Quenching and well balanced, but perhaps hot intense enough for hopheads. I liked it.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Draft. Amber color, nice off-white head. Sweet malt aroma under citrus hops. Citrus hops backed by bready malts. Easy to drink. Brewpub serves their beers way too cold.

marcus (6586) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 6, 2010
Pours clear yellow/gold with a massive white head that is fueled by constant bubbling. There is a light banana aroma and a decent toffee flavor with enough hop bitterness to make it acceptable.
