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.

Second beer of the Seattle "Always-See-But-Never-Drink" Blind Tasting. Clear, slightly sickly yellow. Medium body, sparkly, corn, house yeast. Some mild, old school hopping. Really not terrible, but a bit over produced ’macro’ tasting. But nice to have some old school memories of Weinhards! Some of my first beer memories are from this brand, back when my dad had six packs of Blue Boar around.

trevor211 (1623) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Pours light transparent orange. Juicy citrus, just a bit of a hop bite. Something like a really, really weak version of the DFH Olde School, with a bit more corn. Finishes dry -- not bad at all.

LetsGoState (818) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Aroma is a pretty sweet and piney hop. Taste is a little sweet for an IPA, but very drinkable. Overall not much of an IPA, but not bad.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Single bottle and served in no-nik pint glass: Golden hued with a lasting fizzy head and good lacework. The aroma has notes of biscuity and caramel malts with grapefruity and piney Cascade hops, touch of pepper and DMS. The taste is lightly hoppy but you can get the Cascade character with moderate malt backbone and some spicy notes. Light sulfury notes do detract some. The mouth feel is meh, just sort of there. It is what it is, a generic paint by number IPA. Quaffable enough for easy enjoyment.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Pours a pure liquid gold with a small white head mostly dissipating. Nose is equal parts malt and hops. Very creamy on the palate, this beer has a well balanced flavor of medium roasted malts and Cascade hops that is not overly bitter or hoppy, especially for an IPA. A good companion to deli sandwiches or with nuts.

mjg74 (3015) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle from Ralph’s. Sweet lightly hopped nose with a bit of graininess. Fairly clean, but tastes more like a pale lager with some extra hops than an IPA. Easy to drink, but fairly boring.

Stevesie (336) - - JAN 4, 2013
Light copper with small, dissipating head and touch of lacing. Nose isn’t overly enticing with suppressed floral notes. Active carbonation, which dominates the mouthfeel. Not very hoppy for an IPA and not much bitterness. Medicinal finish. Pedestrian, at best.

bottle. clear gold with a fluffy white head. faint stale hop nose with jelly. sharp carbonation and light palate. intensely bitter with astringency instead of floral, fruity, or citrus. sharply carbed palate and light malt backbone give it an almost pale lager mouthfeel.
