India Pale Ale is a style of ale noted for it's alcoholic strength and bitterness.. Amber in color, this ale offers the drinker a highly hopped, bold beer whose full flavor dances on the palate.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2008 draft - Pours coppery with a medium sized head. The aroma is citrus hops. The flavor is a pretty straight up citrus hops IPA with decent balance, though a little lacking in the malts. The finish is moderately bitter. It’s simple, but good.

Draft sampler at Broad Ripple. Big where it counts, in those northwestern citrussy hops we know and love. A bit grassy after that. Cloudy coppery appearance with a big piney smell. That’s all I wrote? Must be getting to the end of the sampler platter. Very nice beer.

On tap at the pub. Murky copper color with a big bubble cream colored head. Nice fresh hop nose. Very expected grapefruit rind bitterness with the right malt support. Very good with the food there. Solid IPA.

Unique brewpub IPA. Not much hops in aroma, more bready, malty. Fairly pale IPA, surprisingly hoppy in bitterness and flavor, comparable to, but better than, Grant’s IPA. Appropriate light carbonation (uncommon in most IPAs), quite dry on the palate. Very addictive belt of bittering and flavor hops - one of the bitterest, yet most drinkable IPAs on the planet. No surprise the owner is from England.

Draft as part of sampler at Broad Ripple. Clear amber color with a medium white head that diminshed slowly. Medium hoppy aroma. Medium body. Good flavor of hops with a medium bitter finish.

From a growler filled two hours earlier, by John Hill, owner of the Broad Ripple Brew Pub. Darker orange with off white head. Great hop flower aroma, strong citrus hop presense. Stronger citrus hop flavor but not as overpowering as I thought it would be. Some minor malt sweetness at the back provide a little ballance. Medium body and very bitter and a little to sticky at the finish.

Lubiere (10187) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2004
Golden IPA with a light hoppy aroma. Very intense hops, dry and bilous. Needs more malts for balance. Lots of lemon and grapefruits. Metallic finish.

BBB63 (6087) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Tap at brewpub: Deep amber hue with an average frothy white head and good lace. The aroma has notes of piney aromatic hops, light citrus, caramel and toasted malts. The nose is a bit weak. The taste starts crisp and clean with a bitter front and a nice citric twang. Some sweetness and roasted malt balance. A fleeting finish with some bitters. The feel is slightly metallic and bready, just average. A solid brew, nothing big or fancy. More akin to a slightly hoppier APA, it is quaffable.

(sample @ brewery) a deep gold, lightly hazed, with good lacing. aroma is lightly hoppy (light for an IPA, that is), with prominently citrus-y American hop notes. flavor starts malty, then gives way to an unpleasantly astringent bitterness. hops and malt show decent balance, but ultimately astringency hinders the drinking.
