COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Northwest style IPA is generously hopped to 60 IBU’s with Centennial hops from the Yakima Valley. Brewed in the classic style with two-row Pale and Crystal malt, our IPA is a real thirst quencher. It has a full, malty body and there’s even a hint of fresh citrus to it. Perfect after your favorite water sport. Even if that happens to be the grueling drag-the-poolside-lounge-chair-into-the-sun event. Classic IPA is available in 6-packs, 12-packs, and on draft. ABV 6% IBU 60

Much better then the scores here indicate. Don’t expect a Pac NW hop bomb though. Chill haze amber, creamy off white head with great lacing. As it warmed, nice floraly perfume and grapefruit hop tones emerge with soft notes of pine and earth. A faint toasty caramel note plays out late. Well bittered up front with good earthy citrus flavors throughout, and a soft sweet malt character playing the background role. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, hoppy finish. I made it into my session ale during a week in Austin, and I would gladly do it again soon...

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2006
Bottle obtained in a trade with <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?U target=blank>DarkElf, thanks Stephen. Golden-orange in colour, dissipating white head, patchy lace. The flavour is slightly sweet, some light citrus hops and some caramel malts. The flavour was grassy, some citrus hops, light pine, caramel malt balance. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes with a lingering moderate bitterness, slightly dry.

Bottle from the Blue Max. This, along with Smuttynose IPA make me a true believer in this style.A mild hoppiness matched up with a perfect blend of malts have made this one of my favorite summer brews.Very refreshing and enjoyable

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2006
Tasted in Toronto. Obtained on a trip to Boulder Colorado. Tasted in a dimple mug. Appearance is rusty / abmer with initial big white head that subsides to thin wispyness. Cheescake like aroma with hints of grapefruit, citrus and flowery hops. Flavour is balanced, grapefruit bitterness upfront and in the finish but is complemented by a malty biscuit backbone that lingers sublime.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Clear, pale amber hue, bone white head, smallish but staying. Aroma: soft, and slightly hoppy, mostly soapy. Minor citrus, but any hoppy kick is muted, at best. Tasting it: nice hop attack on the palate, dry and brittle in the mouthfeel, before slowly fading back. Returns with each sip. Medium bodied, lingering hoppy finish. Gets juicier and brighter toward the end. Enjoyable texture. Nice taste. Feels dry-hopped, and I imagined if it weren’t, it wouldn’t be quite so enjoyable. Not bad, though, not bad at all.

kevinphish (31) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 25, 2006
Clear, golden amber, with wisps of white head tucked around the edges of the glass. Aroma is of citrusy Northwest-style hops. Flavor is an initial burst of hop tang, which then gives way the a nutty, biscuity middle.. Finishes with surprisingly strong bittering, with mild malty sweetness hanging on for the ride..

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUN 10, 2006
Golden color with a small head and nice lacing. I can smell citrus and some mild hop aroma. Medium to light body with a nice balance of sweetness and hops. It does leave a nice bitterness after every sip. Overall, this is a nice summer brew, but definitely not what I consider an IPA, it is lacking in the hops department.

DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Light amber with a thin white head. Smells floral and piney with a slight caramel note to it. Taste is pine with some floral aftertaste brings in a slight malt taste. Watery but leaves a slight hop tang. A nice little IPA.

cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2006
Pours a clear golden color with a faint film head. Light carbonation. Light grassy, noble hop aroma. Flavor leans toward the hop side. Light to medium body with a sharp finish. I’m just not into English style IPA’s. Worth a try.

Gold. Thin head. Wispy hop aroma. Hoppy and malty. Nice moderate level of both.
