COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This English style IPA is a full-flavored, full-bodied brew that has a big bold malt character and intense aromatics. It’s a well-balanced, golden-colored brew that has a crisp hop finish that doesn’t bite. With its palate cleansing finish, IPA is a perfect for highly spiced dishes with curry, ginger, garlic or cumin. This classic English style IPA is brewed with: 2-row Pale malt and is hopped with Challenger and East Kent Goldings hops

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body with a minimal wispy white head. The nose is light citrusy hops with a caramel malt base. The flavor is pretty balanced between the hops and malt, not overly bitter, with a light caramel base. Lighter bodied with fizzy carbonation. Pretty middle of the road stuff.

12 oz bottle in Palm Harbor FL. I always seem to find the Full Sail products in the South for some reason. This one is a little lighter in color than your typical IPA but still well-flavored. And after spending the past week with highly alcoholic IPAs, this one feels refreshing at only 6.0% ABV. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

boxofrane (2067) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear orange with a small white head and almost no retention. The aroma smells truly awful.. some light citrus but a really poor IPA aroma. The taste is lightly bitter, boring, muted citrus. Sorry, this guy is a dud.

We did a blind taste test between this beer and 4 others to determine which was a better IPA. The beers that were competing were: Stone IPA, Big Sky IPA, Bear Republic Racer 5, Lagunitas IPA, and Full Sail IPA. Here is the video: http://youtu.be/AAPlYzFD4m8

PhilJackson80 (300) - Oklahoma, USA - SEP 14, 2013
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 12 oz Bottle. The beer pours to a orange/amber color with a small white head. The aroma is a floral / grassy smell to it. The taste is medium body with very little bitter on the finish. Overall more like a hoppy pale ale to me but not bad.

Malaclemys (370) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - SEP 14, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2014 Bottle. Pours amber with white head. Floral, fruit, slight caramel aroma. Taste is floral, very sweet, honey and earthy. Medium light body sweet finish. Almost tastes like fermentation was incomplete.

resevil787 (123) - Arizona, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle. Amber, white head, medium lacing, clear color. Aroma is bitter hops. Taste is well, bitter, and not a good bitter at that. Abrupt finish. I’d say I was disappointed but I’ve yet to be impressed by full sail.
