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.

Pours to a really dark mahogany body. Very creamy tan head. The aroma is very nice. Citrus hops, pine hops, floral hops. The flavor is roasted citrus hops. I get mostly chinook hops. The palate is bitter and watery. No mouth feel during swallow. Thereís a chalkyness to it.

From a bottle: wowzer, this pours almost like a porter! Cloudy medium reddish-brown with a moderate off-white head. Somewhat floral aroma. Bitter from start to finish. Sure, a little more malt would be nice but hopheads should like this very much. Pretty decent.

Tap. Pours mahagoney with a creamy tan head. Fragrant floral and citrus hop aroma. Huge hoppy pine and citrus flavor. Medium bodied.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2005
Dark orange. Dulled pine and resin hop aroma with no malt. Sweet, sugary, juicy malts, with excessive bitterness and once again, dulled hop flavors. Really poor finish as well. Light & watery texture. Eh.

Ratman197 (9802) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2005
Hazy copper color with a small offwhite head. Aromas of pine, kind bud, and citrus. Flavors of pine, and grapefruit rind. Bitter from beggining to end. Could use a little more malt for balance.

fuyajo (229) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Nice smell, but thatís kind of itís best quality. Overly hoppy to the point of bitterness. Watery mouthfeel. Also, this is the darkest pale ale Iíve ever had. Not so great.

Muddled would be the right description I think. Nothing about this brew seems to meld. Malt and hops clash. Not good at all.

A mu rky copper pour, this was an unimpressive IPA. the flavor was watery, with an occasional taste of hops. There are so many more great IPAs out there. Pass on this one.

3fourths (8028) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2005
Chill haze very noticable after pouring the bottle... when it was pouring it was clear medium amber colored, but as it sits in the glass and is chilled, there is a murky haze present. The aroma has a caramel notes, crystal malts perhaps... a bit nutty with some of those smells coming from the yeast, I suspect. The hops smell a little old, a little musty, but the cascade are still sweet and a little spicy. Big musty hop flavor with a metallic twang malt flavor that resembles homebrew. The metallic and burnt nut flavors almost make this IPA undrinkable... really not appealing to me at all, itís just my preference for certain types of IPAs. Finishes dry with the chinook coating the mouth with a scorched, dry, leafy parched texture. Not a complicated or unique IPA, this one pretty much tastes like the standard homebrew IPA kit recipe.

Dense, thin head. Mild aroma of hops. Color is a very dark orange. Medium body. Slightly toasted taste, hops come in quite bitter in the finish. Nice bittering, but still needs some work as far as flavor hops.
