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

Pretty weak for an IPA compared to any of the ’big’ IPAs like Stone, Alesmith, Great Divide, Dogfish, etc. But still, not a bad IPA, not too expensive. I could see ’beer newbs’ breaking their teeth on this before stepping up to better beers.

Is this an IPA? Certainly much weaker and bitter than almost all ofther PNW IPAs. I found the flavor to be average and lacking any distinction and the it seems they went light on the hops. An IPA made for people who don’t like bitterness or hops in my opinion. Second rate.

Golden amber color. Orange and lemon aroma. Slightly grassy in the malt department. Insane hoppiness. For the money, theis is an outstanding IPA.This stuff rules.

12 oz bottle poured pale amber with a quickly diminishing white head. Mild hop aroma with some notes of pine and grass. Nice hop profile with a citrus flavor and a hint of malt. Crisp, dry finish, a decent IPA.

Small white head, fair retention with a thin clingy lace. Clear gold color. Light citrusy nose and a faint floweriness. Body is light. Hop flavors up front, citrusy, melons and pineapple with light malt flavors hiding in the background. Lightly sweet finish followed by a cute little hop bite. Thanks kaggie97!

Great IPA. From the aroma to the palate down to the belly. Well balanced. Great Hops. This is easily a go to pick from the cooler. Very enjoyable. Keep them coming.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2006 Bottle marked 020106 08:30 sampled 01/14/06. Clear light orange with slightly above average carbonation. Somewhat skunky aroma with flowery overtones. Not bitter enough up front, but ends up with a lingering flowerly hop bite. Very clean for an IPA. Not sure at first, but grew on me quite a bit over the bottle. Would buy again. The lingering bitter does it despite the weak hop start.

(Bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a small off-white head. Aroma of pine, toastiness, and grapefruit. Flavor of bitter hops and malt.

Clear, golden body with a moderate, fluffy white head. Subtle, enticing aroma of caramel, oranges, pine needles, whole grains, grapefruit, lemon zest and toasted bread. The hops and malt are well balanced as the hops start off the show, but the underlying sweetish malt adds depth and character to the nose. The body is smooth and moderately full--not mind-blowing, but solid and enjoyable. The flavor profile has a nice balance as well. The hops and malt actually go back and forth competing for the top spot on the tongue. It’s piney at first before waves of grain envelope the tongue. At the top, a nice citric bitterness hits before undulations of sweet caramel and toasted grains and bread ride out the finish. This is a nice, balanced, drinkable IPA that goes down well with a nice crisp, bitter, lasting finish that begs for another draught.
