A special style of pale ale that has high hop bitterness, flavor, aroma and a higher alcohol content. Originally brewed in England for the long trip to India when additional hops were added for preservation. Boxing Cat TKO IPA has a medium body with some maltiness. Three different hop varieties contribute estery citrus and tangerine notes to this fine light orange-copper color beer. Dry-hopped aggressively with Simcoe and Amarillo hops.

Keg at Great Leap #6, Beijing. Hazy amber, creamy head. Grapefruity nose. Mid sweet with above medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Caramel and grapefruit. Long resiny bitterness. Too resiny and caramelly for me.

kidmartinek (4447) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Light, bright copper color with a golden tint. Slow rising bubbles fill the glass and hold a 1/4" white head. Aroma is malty and bitter. Somewhere between a traditional amd.American IPA. Good bitterness but with a strong malt backbone.

sailracer (481) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Tap at the brewery. Pours a golden color without much head or lacing. Smooth initial taste with some strong hops. Not much maltiness. The bitterness comes on strong and is the kind that stays in your mouth for the rest of the night- a negative for me. OK but not great overall.
