COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with extra hops and malt in the English tradition, but with West Coast style. This deep golden India Pale Ale is artfully balanced with a fresh, powerful aroma and a luscious finish.

BOLTZ7555 (3004) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Sampled @ BJ’s Brewhouse in Cupertino. Bright red grapefruit pour with a small ivory head that left sticky lacing on the inside of the glass. Aroma was of spruce, honey, and orange pith. Flavor was strong citrus along with caramel and evergreen. Medium mouthfeel . A pretty solid representation of the style.

Hoppy_Luke (1008) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 29, 2016
Kolejne piwo prosto ze Stanów. Tym razem IPA browaru Drake’s Brewing Company, znajdującego się w San Leandro, w stanie California. W szkle wygląda bardzo ładnie - bursztynowy kolor i niewielka, biała piana. W aromacie wyczuwalne owoce, głównie cytrusy oraz nuty żywiczne. W smaku dość wytrawne, są owoce, nieco słodyczy. Goryczka delikatna, nie nachalna. Wysycenie średnie. Przyjemne, solidne piwo!

Biroholik (623) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - APR 21, 2016
Złoty Medalista Great American Beer Festival. Złoty w pełni klarowny trunek. W aromacie kombinacja nut żywicznych tropikalnych i kwiatowych. Zapach jest umiarkowanie trwały. W smaku wytrawne z akcentami owoców cytrusowych i tropikalnych. Sporo herbacianych detali. Goryczka średniej maści, króciutka z żywicznym finiszem. Średnie wysycenie. Bardzo orzeźwiające, średnio pełne i super pijalne.

Eripe323 (43) - SWEDEN - APR 16, 2016
Bottle from Villevalla pub. West coast IPA with a malty body. Dark transperent yellow with off-white head. Too old, will drink again if I get the chance, would like it fresh

R4N5H (606) - NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2016
Draught at The Atrium Bar, Hyatt Regency San Francisco on 13-Mar-2016. Hazy pale golden colour with a medium sized white head. Aroma of citrus, sweet caramel malt, pine and grain. Medium body and carbonation. Bitter tropical fruit taste - pineapple, orange and grapefruit. Floral pine flavour which lingers in the bitter fruity finish.

mgajdaczewa (1418) - Katowice, POLAND - APR 9, 2016
W aromacie zaskakująco rześko, cytrus, tropiki, zwłaszcza mango, po czasie dochodzi ciasteczko i leciuteńkie utlenienie, które jest jedynym minusem piwa. W smaku mega gładkie, miękkie, mango i ciasteczkowa słodowość, goryczka wyraźna, ale króciutka. Nisko nasycone, ale piekielnie pijalne. Doskonale skrojone IPA, wiadomo, piło się lepsze i świeższe, ale tu jest 100% satysfakcji.

olio (8721) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 9, 2016
355 ml bottle.
Pours clear golden color with a large white head. Pineapple and orange on the nose, mild hops, grassy notes, pine needles and malts. Flavor is a bit stuffy and malty, grainy even, some orange and mild grapefruit notes. Carbonation is medium, bitter palate. Feels a bit old sadly, I was really looking forward to this.

PotjeBier (2422) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2016
On tap @ Beer Temple. Hazy orange color. Rather stiff white head with some lacing. Aroma’s: citrus, a bit resin, light malty sweetness. Retronasal it’s more earthy and citrus. Flavor is moderate earthy bitter with light sweetness. Medium bodied. Finishes with some herbal hops first and eventually earthy bitter.

The_Osprey (5308) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2016
Bottle at home as ’Drakes IPA’, 7%, "date of maximum durability = August 2016". Dark amber orange, pretty clear, still, small foamy off-white head, light lacing. Aroma is toffee, pine, fudge, mint. Nice. Body is light, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is resinous, rose water, grassy, pine, spicy finish. Very clean and crisp with nice hop spice. A very solid, classic American IPA.

on its own, it’s a tad too sweet for my taste. it worked really well with a rave macho burger and spicy fries. not a favourite but it’s otherwise a pleasant tipple.
