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

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2005 Nice new packaging, reminding me of Dad’s office back in the late 60’s early 70’s with its wood panelling. Clean spicy nose. golden amber coloer. Small head with lots of lacing. I have always prefered Full Sails efforts over the other Big NW Brewers (Widmer/Pyramid). But I have to say I’ve tasted better. Sad to say, I enjoy Dechutes IPA for it’s drinkability, a good but not overbearing ale.

IndianaRed (2569) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 20, 2005
Bottle Pours a bright clear orange/amber with a thick creamy off white head. Lots of clinging lacing. Aroma is an up-front hops but tamed or subdued a bit with a wody malty sweetness. Flavors are a fairly strong but ballanced hops and malt medley. Tasty and refreshing. It works for me

CapFlu (4589) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2005
(Bottle) Frothy, white with nice lacing. Golden amber body without carbonation. Nose is mildly off. Strong malt notes for an IPA, mossy horse blanket. Very bitter hops, citrus, creamy. Lactic and dry, bitter finish.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2005
Bottle pours a translucent golden, large white frothy head, nice lacing, with light carbonation.   Slight hop nose, quite herbish, some wet dog or as I like to put it, old granny perm smell.   Quite floral up front, on the tongue, with a mild hop bitterness.   Slightly malty.   Body and mouthfeel are quite average.   Mild hop finish... nothing real exciting.   Quite average this is.   Certainly on the ligher side if IPAs.   I’d go so far as to say it would make a better Pale Ale than an IPA.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2005
Draught. Light copper. Gentle, pine & grapefruit hop blend in the aroma but the aroma is very subtle. Meek body and malt profile and the hops arn’t even vibrant or very flavorful, just a bit medicinal and piney. The malt presence must have perished along the way from Oregon to Colorado, which is something I find in so many of Full Sail’s smaller beers.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - DEC 31, 2004
Tap at the brewery. Nice aroma and appearance. Medium amber color. White head with good lacing. As an English styled IPA this is not bad. Floral hops and a decent malt balance. Fair lingering hop finish.

fly (1419) - austin, Tejas, Alabama, USA - SEP 14, 2004
Nice IPA. Had one out at the lake and just after a 120 minute. At the lake on a fresh pallet it was very pleasant and satisfying. After the 120 min. it seemed surprisingly bitter. Now go figure.

Thin, not hoppy at all. West coast IPA? No character, nothing stands out, I only tasted sudsy water.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2004
A nice crisp and clean ipa, with a bit of zing as it first hits you in the mouth. Nice acidic grapefruit hoppiness, with not enough of a malt backbone, but otherwise verry tasty and easy to drink. Lots of bite!

3fourths (8219) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 12, 2004
Not made anymore is what I hear. Too bad because I really like this stuff. True, it is just another NW IPA, not too different from the rest, but but still it was good stuff. Golden orange appearance. The aroma was of fresh hopped peach and pine. The flavor was biting bitter and a grapefruit sourness.
