COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Tap @ Estes Park. Cloudy copper with a small head. No hops in the aroma, just some sweet caramel malt. Flavor is mostly sweet and malty very light hop bitterness and citrus taste. This one felt unbalanced and need more hops.

Pours copper with a faint ring of bubbles. Smells of mild citrus, caramel. Tastes of caramel with some sweet citrussy notes and an earthy finish.

JesusPooped (40) - Bay View, Wisconsin, USA - APR 6, 2010
Pours very dark and opaque. No head or lacing whatsoever. Nose is bland hops and faint citrus. Taste is a bit better than the smell, but tastes watered down, which I guess increases drinkability! Glad I only bought one bottle for $1.69. Would not buy again.

draft at the brewpub - Pours cloudy copper and has a nice grapefruit hops aroma. The flavor has good, citrusy hop bitterness and well balanced sweet malt in there too lending a medium body to this not very complex but very drinkable IPA.

Lagunitasfan (1321) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 30, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Dark amber orange with light, fluffy head. Nose is hops and sharp citrus. Taste is floral sticky thick sweet to light hoppy bitterness. Not a bad IPA at all.

ROGUE (2145) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 2, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper body with a fluffy white head. Hoppy aroma of citrus and grapefruit. The flavors started with a flash of caramel malt followed immediately by the citrus and floral hops. Not the big hoppy beer i was looking for but it was alright.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 9, 2009
A pretty tight IPA if i do say so myself. A cloudy copper colour with a medium sized head. Awesome aroma with fruity pebbles and fresh floral notes. Taste is so fruity and awesome with hints of pepper and blueberry as well as dankalicious herb notes.

nuplastikk (5072) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 6, 2009
12oz bottle. !005 flat. No hiss, no bubbles. Has to be an off bottle. Unfortunate, as its got a pretty nice taste to it. Earthy hop aroma. Deep orange-brown color, a little darker than typical. Sweet upfront with a nice bitter finish. Good, but underwhelming when uncarbonated.

Really not much hop aroma for an IPA. Dark orange color. This is not a hoppy IPA - about equal with a SoCal Pale ale. The hops are more at the end of this. That said, this is still pretty easy drinking. Good, not great.
