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.

Pint glass, nice finger and half of foamy head. Transparent copper colored body. Almost smells like lemon and pine, so faint though. A little bitter taste upfront, quickly dies off though. Nothing else. Crisp texture, moderation carbonation and medium body. Well, itís brewed under contract in Hood River, Oregon but thereís no fooling itís a product of SABMiller, though one of the better tasting ones.

Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma has a lemony note...touch of grass...hint of caramel. Flavor has some earthy/grassy notes, a bit of caramel. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is dry and earthy/bitter. Not good.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Craig! Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A light sweet nose of floral and citrus hops, big biscuit. The flavor is a big earthy malt, some perfume, light citrus, low bitterness. Tea-like. OK.

ben4321 (4383) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 10/26/12

Aroma: It is kind of sweet and malty, with caramel, sugar, and an underlying earth hop notes
Appearance: It pours an clear orange color with a small white head and drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is medium sweet with some metallic notes, and a little bit of hop bitterness
Palate: The body is fairly light, it feels a little fizzy and a little metallic, with a mildly dry finish
Overall Impression: This one isnít impressive, and it probably isnít even an IPA, but it isnít a bad beer. Still though, I canít really imagine too many situations in which I would purposely choose this one again.

Brouwerij (955) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2012 Poured into standard pint glass. Pours a clear, golden color. Two finger white head after a hard pour, dissipates to a rocky white cap after a few minutes. Decent lacing. Floral and mild citrus smell, you can detect the cascade hops. Relatively mild hop profile. A bit of maltiness. Mildly bitter finish that lingers for a bit. Medium body and good carbonation. Overall, a decent IPA, not particularly strong or hoppy. A drinkable IPA that probably wonít satisfy hop heads.

dfinney23 (2054) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Pours clear amber with a thin white-ish head that leaves light lacing. Aroma is grassy with some caramel smoothness. Taste is unusually sweet for a supposed IPA and nowhere near as hoppy. Not bad for what it is, which is not an IPA.

OK, but wouldnít bother searching this one out.
