Or award-winning India Pale Ale (1993) is a hop lovers dream. We load up on the Chinook and cascade to create high bitterness and wonderful aroma. We even dry-hop this beer to give it even more hop flavor. Our IPA has a rich copper color and lots of body.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a thinnish ivory head, poorly retained, with minimal lacing, over a slightly medium amber (SRM 13) body.....nose is citrus including grapefruit, tangerine, orange, hints of toffee/caramel, light herbs, balance to the hops......taste is light cereal malts,lightly toffee/caramel sweetness, with floral notes, citrus, with grapefruit tangerine, leading to a moderate bitter finish.....mouth feel, light of medium body, no alcohol, low carbonation. This is a soft and gentle IPA. The bitterness is relatively low and the malts are muted. The aromas and flavors of the hops are pleasantly complex and in charge of the beer. It could use a slightly bigger malt and matching hop backbones. BJCP 7/2/14/4/7

Pours hazy copper with little bit of head. Aroma is citrus and floral, very nice. It has a rich grainy texture with its caramel malt profile. It balances very nicely with a slightly bitter piney bite and some citrus and tropical fruit hops. Pretty classic good IPA.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2014
12oz bottle, purchased from Brennan’s in Madison during GTMW. Half hazy red orange color. Slight brown. Thin khaki head. Leaves decent ridges of lace. Decent caramel malt, kind of nice. Toasty, some dark fruit. Mild spicy herbal hop, some tropical fruit, resin. Light hint of grapefruit. More malt forward, but it’s not too sweet. Not bothersome. Moderate bitter taste. Light to moderate sweet. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of creamy, lighter carbonation. Light slick finish. Surprised at how much I enjoyed this one, it being a malt-forward IPA. It’s a nice balance, though.

kevinsenn (1876) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a foamy tan head. Intoxicating aroma of kiwi, strawberry, melon, and flowers. Malty taste up front, some light notes, and a "rough" bitter finish. Medium carbonation.

Bulk_Carrier (3420) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was basically a hazy orange to brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. There was some light clingy and somewhat foamy lacing. The smell had some light citrus to piney hops to blend decently with some light spice. There was some light caramel in there as well. The taste was sweet and bitter but at separate times. The palate had some decent harshness but managed to be somewhat tame. Overall, I say this was an alright beer.

Danyel (1606) - Colorado, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Tap. Pours dark orange/ brown with white head. Aroma is citrusy hops, not a ton else going on. Taste bitter backbone, very citrusy, medium bodied, flat, needs more carbonation. Not too impressed.

Salmoniform (1272) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Poured from tap to glass. Amber hue with off white head that diminished to a thin ring. Aroma is papaya, melon, tangerine, honey, cantaloup, caramel. Mouthfeel is decent with a moderate body and low carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a bitterness in the following which is reminiscent of bitter orange peel. Overall a moderate IPA as it’s a bit too heavy on the caramel.

Decent amount of hops and the right amount of bitterness. I generally prefer my IPA’s at a higher ABV, but this one sufficed. See how it went down: http://teamchug.com/?p=341
