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 isnít as big a problem, weíve eased up on the hoppiness just a hair to let the caramel malts shine through. Itís a big beer with big flavor that really lets you appreciate hops in all their glory.

This is really a poor IPA. I mean, this reminded me more of a pale lager than an IPA! Almost no hop flavor. Bad stuff.

Bought a 12-pack. Should have known by the low price. A dismal attempt at an IPA. Little body, faint hops, yuck. Anyone want 11 bottles of it cheap?

From a bottle, pours light for an IPA, golden. Respectable, though not great, IPA. Decent hop aroma and mold hop flavor profile.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours golden with an off-white head. Aroma of tin and pale malts plus light hops. For it to be called an IPA, there should be more in this beer.

Bottle. Pours golden orange with a thin white head. Light flowery notes, pale malts, and straw. Not that good.

Pours a golden amber with a frothy head that actually hangs on (most IPA dissipates pretty quickly so this is a warning sign). Was expecting quite a not o bold flavor as I heard this brewery is pretty popular on the northwest coast. Pretty basic IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is not good. Looks, smells, and tastes like Coors made a half-hearted attempt at an IPA. Avoid.

12 oz bottle. This beer is a horrible example of an IPA! Should be labeled as cheap American Schwill. Aroma is of hay, leather and something sour I canít describe. Pours a nice dark yellow with a thick head which is its only redeeming quality. Taste is salty, bitter and not fun to drink. Palate is harsh, not fun to drink. Overall this is not fun to drink; should have known with the 6.99 price point.

BigBeer45 (1336) - Michigan, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle, this beer had a clear copper pour and made a one and half off-white head that receded to a thin cover and ring, there were some small spots of lacing on the glass, the aromas were light toasted malt, faint caramel, and the faint hops are woody and citrus, it had flavors of light toasted malt and some caramel, and a little hop bitterness, hops taste a little off, cardboard like flavor after the finish, the finish had some hop bitterness with some malt sweetness still on the tongue, the mouth feel was light and a little thin, an IPA with a faint nose and light flavors.

Amber in color with a decent off-white head. The grassy hop aroma mixed with a hint of vegetable matter and vinegar create an aroma of sauerkraut. The taste is a little better with caramel, masking tape, and woody hops.
