Runway I.P.A. is our first flight into the wild blue yonder of ales. While we thought that we may keep our feet firmly planted exclusively in the world of lagers we have been producing since 2003, over the years customers have been imploring us to brew a Dale Bros. version of an I.P.A. We are happy to say their wait is over. Runway I.P.A. takes off with four hop additions in the brew kettle, then brings it in for a landing with multiple dry hop additions. The flavor and aroma are courtesy of Summit, Galaxy and Cascade hops. Place your tray table in the upright and locked position -- here we go!

Fun IPA, a little malty, more bitterness than aromatics but overall an easy drinker. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

alexanderj (3405) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle; poured a murky amber color; big whitish head. Aroma of malty caramel, earth and yeast. Aroma was a bit bland. Touch of sweet vanilla in the finish and a bit too malty throughout. Touch of fruit and earthiness, some off putting dry yeastiness. Not great.

GT2 (9272) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Tap at the brewery in Upland, CA. Clear amber orange pour. Decent lacing for once. Catty bright hop aroma..a tad sharp but nice. Taste is orange peel bitter, heavy nut shell bitter. Palate is dusty and again tannic. Gets overly harsh coupled with the heavy IBUs.

brokensail (12766) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Orange pour with a slight haze and a white head. Sweet orange and tangerine hop aromas. A bit of pine, grass, and flowers. Some sweet bread and toffee notes, too. The flavor is on the sweet side for an IPA. Bready malt, grass, and some citrus peel. Mild pine bitterness, some floral notes, and some hints of soap.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 20, 2012
(22oz bomber from Saarlander!). Pours a hazy orange-amber color with off-white head that leaves some sticky lacing. Aroma has some malt, resin and a bit of tropical notes. The taste is sweet with dried apricot coming through. Medium bodied and a creamy mouthfeel. Pretty decent and I’d be able to drink a couple pints of this in a sitting and be quite happy.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Pour from a bomber thanks to Tim. Golden and murky orange in color. Modest white head. The aromas were actually very nice with probably the dry hops of galaxy etc. Some good lemon, orange, grapefruit on the nose. Flavors were mildly bitter and balanced sweetness. Mouthfeel maybe on the thin side and a quick finish. A bit more of a bitter hop blast would have been nice. Overall pleasantly surprised.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - DEC 24, 2011
22oz bomber. Rating #3. Clear, dark brown/orange color with a nice white head and moderate lacing. Light hoppy aroma, but what aroma is there is big grapefruit, juicy grapefruit at that, very pleasant. Light bitterness with more sweet grapefruit and a mild aftertaste, pretty nice actually. (2066)
