First produced in 1987 for a customer going through a divorce, Alimony Ale was one of the first craft IPAís. It gained cult status after articles appeared in Newsweek and Playboy. This brew has a pleasing and robust hop aroma with a balanced malt character and just the right amount of citrus, pine, and fruity esters. It has a rich malt character thatís balanced by the bitterness of magnum hops and the aromatics of cascade hops. ďItís irreconcilably differentĒ.

November 2011. Bottle. Pours amber color with a white head. Aromas of caramel, malt and fruit. Pretty muted flavors, mostly caramel. Lacks hops on the finish.

DuffMan (9498) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 3, 2013
Bottle. Hazy medium amber with golden highlights, ginormous foamy head that stays put, slowly caving in on itself. Aroma is pretty soapy, oddly enough. Caramel with intrusive plastic notes flood the palate, with only moderate bitterness. Just not very pleasant flavour country. Pass.

Amber pour with a white head. Aroma is full of bread, perfume, grass and toffee. Flavor is similar with a lot of flower and perfume notes from the hops, as well as some sweet toffee and a little bit of pine. Low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Love e label and the name, but the brew is very average. Not a bad beer, but nothing about it stands out and there are some major flaws.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - FEB 17, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 Pours murky brownish amber with some bold and brawny foam that wonít fall down. I had to wait to taste it. Citrus hops nose with carmel malt, some floral some apple in the back and medicinal alcohol. The nose is not real big. Taste is both sweet and bitter. Alcohol on the palate and a rubbery taste that I couldnít quite get into. I kept wondering what went wrong? Went down dry but tasted like pencil erasers and didnít fade well. I would pass on this next time.

I agree with others here, this brew is decent, but not great. Lacks hoppy aroma and taste. Drinkable, not one of the worst ipaís Iíve had.

Pours a hazy golden brown with a thick white head. Aroma of malt, slight hops and a tart/sour note. Taste is alcohol, slight hops, a lot of malt and an off/sour note. Really weird, kinda disgusting. I donít like this beer
