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.

This is a great IPA with wonderful hoppiness. The dry hopping is very evident but with a smoothness that’s hard to beat. May become one of my new favorite IPAs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I love the color of this one - deep copper amber. Fluffy head with lacing. Nice grapefruit nose and strong citric hop presence. Well balanced with a caramel sweetness. My only complaint is a watery mouthfeel, otherwise nice beer. Thanks to my father-in-law!

Maybe it’s the altitude, but this is a wonderful hoppy brew. This has been a favorite of mine for 5 - 6 years. Wish I could get some in Maine, but I will next October.

Deep mahogany with a white and frothy head - tight & creamy bubbles. Sweet, fresh & malty aroma! Mighty fine-looking beer. Upon the first sip, sweet hop flavors burst out. Pure olfactory candy. Nice amount of bitterness in the finish – balanced. Floral, earthy, & piney... with a dry and puckering finish. Gentle fruit flavors merge with the hops perfectly! Malt is well complemented also. Good beer!

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a dark amber color that almost looked brown at first. Had a lingering off-white head and very good lacing thru the entire glass. Although this did not have the usual IPA appearance, the aroma was floral and grapefruit/citrus. Flavor was more citrus, and the finish was smooth, slightly bitter, and very hoppy. I had this IPA while sitting in a hot-tub after a day of rafting down the Royal Gorge. A most enjoyable beer.

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.

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.

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.

Copper color and hoppy, citrus nose. An excellent grapefruit, malty flavor. Crisp, clean finish.
