COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally developed for British sailors stationed in India, IPAs were aggressively hopped to help prevent spoilage on long ocean voyages. Now that spoilage isn’t as big a problem, we’ve eased up on the hoppiness just a hair to let the caramel malts shine through. It’s a big beer with big flavor that really lets you appreciate hops in all their glory.

Bottle courtesy of my friend Noel - thanks! Aroma is sweet with light caramel and toasted malt. Taste is soft hops, sweet malt, grains and grass. Body is light-medium with a moderate carbonation. Ends with more caramel, toasted malt and light grassy notes.

very weak aoma, high carbonation, clearly using an extract, about what I expected which wasn’t much. I guess it could be a good intro IPA for those that are used to drinking a domestic light beer.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a deep gold color with a thin white head. It’s got the same cooked veg nose as the amber with some stale hops thrown in. The flavor is cooked veg with slight honey notes and a shitty bitterness on the back end. This beer is garbage.

Twas’ okay. Some hops, dank grassy notes, the finish was ehhh. Fuggin ol’ semi-sweet finish. Pass. Raven’s somehow won. F$ck the Ravens.

Bottle shared in the middle of Florida, somewhere... Was pretty good - as much as I remember...

bigtaster (758) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Pours a golden hay color, with finger and a half of head that leaves behind nice lacing. Not much on the nose, but a bit of pine hop. Light body with clean on the palate until the end, which has a sweet finish that is not enjoyable. Very clean beer, but pretty flavorless compared to the norm of the style.

emacgee (4289) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Pours a sharp clean gold with one finger of off white head. Nose is herbal and musty with grassy notes and sweet malt. Moderate bitterness and body. Metallic hops.

DDaniel (2) - - JAN 24, 2013 does not count
A slight floral hops aroma with a very normal lager flavor not in the hoppy character of an IPA overall very basic.

JuliusCaesar (162) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Not really many flavors and none characteristic of an IPA. I wouldn’t buy this again.

fiveacestx (715) - Texas, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Bottle - average gold with a foamy head that went away quickly. Skunky aroma and a metallic taste. I thought I bought an IPA but this certainly tastes like your typical mexican lager. Fail.
