COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our India Pale Ale is brewed with an aggressive hop profile derived from Amarillo and Simcoe hops. A blend of Crystal malts creates the backbone which supports the hop character without diminishing it.

pours a nice copper color with a small white head. some piney hops on the nose. flavor is very very weak for an ipa. i actually dont see how this can be called an ipa. there regular pale ale has more hop flavor than this.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Bottle, a bit of hops character, pours a nice copper color with a frothy white head. Slight malt notes, slight hop notes, nothing too special, Nothing wrong with it, they should have recategorized it as just a Pale Ale, and it would have been pretty decent but for an IPA its just a bit too wimply, but it is balanced.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Pours a clear, light copper with a dense, frothy, beige head that leaves behind creamy lace as it diminishes. The aroma is fairly muted for an IPA: piny, citric hops on top of sweet, lightly bready malt. Fairly light bodied, for an IPA, the palate is soft and slick with a mildly bitter finish. Sweet malt up front with citrus and pine notes coming in behind. While itís a decent drinker, the flavor isnít particularly inspired. I can think of at least a dozen other IPAs, available locally, that Iíd buy before I would purchase this one again.

Arayaga2 (1812) - portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 3, 2008
Clear copper color with fast-fading white head. Aroma has a tiny bit of floral hoppiness, and it is sweet, but barely there, with a bit of also-subtle biscuityness. Taste is off and grainy, with a bit of stinging hop presence. Rather light, with a clean finish. A decent macroIPA nonetheless.

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2008
12 oz bottle, 6.3% a/v Pours a rich copper brown with a decent thick tan head. The aroma is largly hops, with some malt, some soap, and some citrus. The taste is hoppy and clean with a nice malt blend and a delicious citrus hop aftertaste. Both of JW Dundees Pale Ales (american and indian) are delicious

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 31, 2007
Pours a light amber with a medium white head. Aroma is malty and hoppy, as is the taste, with a small hop aftertaste but not much. A decent underhopped IPA, nothing special.

BEERGUY007 (206) - Scotia, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2007
A nice IPA. Im not a fan of them but it is what it was supposed to be. I guess in the winter I like more dark beers. Drinkable. Nice head, light body. Better summer beer I think.

Gpnterojd (176) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2007
Itís been far too long since I had an IPA, so my rating may be a little skewed. Pours a light clear amber. Aroma of cotton candy (very sweet malts) and citrusy hops. The flavour is mild... too mild. A bit of sweetness from the malt and a disappointingly small bitter kick from the hops. Pine and oak. Dry finish with a short lived aftertaste. Not bad, not great... but itís an IPA, so yum.

jasonlends (15) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 21, 2007
Pours golden with a big head that stays. Aroma is malty and floral. The flavor is pretty well balanced however not very complex and the body is thin. Not delicious, slightly enjoyable.

Decent. Interestingly bitter hop flavor. Not much complexity. Slightly watery and bitter finish that lingers. Very drinkable.
