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.

Stevesie (323) - - 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.

SSSteve (3773) - - JAN 3, 2013
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.

mile (2993) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 2, 2013
Bottle. Golden, average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, light caramel and light floral fruitiness, some grapefruit - light piney hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, light caramel and light bread with some floral fruitiness, light grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and some floral fruitiness with light citrus - piney hoppyness. IPA with floral fruitiness and light bread. OK - could be drier and have less (floral) fruitiness.

greenhorn1 (812) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear orange, high carbonation, small head. Aroma and flavor very weak for an IPA. Subtle floral notes. Very light finish with almost no bitterness. Not a horrible beer, it just does not live up to what an IPA should be.

Palidor19 (2949) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2013
It says IPA but its very mellow with a very weak head. It mostly just a hopped up standard without anything special ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beersak (91) - akron, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Aroma is of bitter hops. Taste is very bitter without a hoppy taste though. Taste more like a regular lager than IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

weitz15 (382) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Light orange pour with a thin white head. Flavor of floral tones and some citrus. Very light hoppy finish. This is an easy ipa.

Nsanders (500) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Clear amber with a thin white head. Aromas of caramel, dough, light resinous hop, and yeasty. Taste is sweet and light on the bitterness for an ipa, wouldn’t know it was an ipa if it weren’t for the label. Okay.

sodakotakid (230) - Belle Fourche, South Dakota, USA - DEC 29, 2012
pours a nice golden with a minimal white head. This beer is very plain. there is light bit of hops, a slight bitterness and a very minimal sweetness.

ozarkspops (361) - - DEC 28, 2012
Straw colored pour. White medium head and a little lacing. West coast hop aroma. Hop aroma is not quite as strong in flavor. Caramel malt flavors come through a bit more. ---Rated via iPhone
