COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This English style IPA is a full-flavored, full-bodied brew that has a big bold malt character and intense aromatics. Itís a well-balanced, golden-colored brew that has a crisp hop finish that doesnít 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

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, 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 arnít 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 Sailís smaller beers.

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.

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 (8639) - 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.

OldGrowth (2935) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2003
Draft @ McCormick&Schmicks:Fruity nose. Clear golden orange color.Little head. Carmel/toffee malt with some citrus hop flavor. Finishes with a lite linguring bitterness, pretty clean otherwise. Not bad, but didn't wow me either

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2003
Pours a very nice red with little head. Nose is fruity with some hops. Floral, fruity flavor with hops that build up as you drink. A pretty mellow IPA.

Creamy hop profile, subtle and sweet, clean and fresh. A smooth ipa with a pleasant feeling body.

jgb9348 (5124) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2003
Orange tint to a golden body with a fairly small off-white head. Subtle hoppy aroma, which is almost barren of malt or any other characteristics. The taste is mostly piney from the hops, while some citrus hoppiness is noticeable. The hop bitterness lingers for quite a while after you have the last sip. The beer's taste was very balanced with hops and malt throughout the taste and palate. Not as hoppy as I had expected for a West Coast brewery, but it was pretty good anyways. I thought this was more of an APA more than an IPA, but maybe it was just this keg!? I had this on tap at the Falling Rock Tap House on 11-August-2003 in Denver, Colorado.
