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.

Pours clear gold with white head. Aroma is piney hops. Pretty light body, piney hops, caramel malts, little bit of spiceyness and a bit of skunkyness (may be old). Slightly below average IPA.

DocLock (8246) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear dark straw with 2-finger frothy off-white head. Nose is resiny hops, tannins, mild fruit. Tastes of hops, mild ale and bitter malt and hop profile, and a pilsy, somewhat watery finish. OK, but not great.

10/16/12. 12oz bottle from... Wal-Mart! A tick at Wal-Mart for $7 per six-pack? Dr. Owl is on the case! Amber pour with a small khaki head that fades. Light aroma with grains, caramel, and light, dingy, earthy hops. Slightly brighter flavor with more dingy, soapy hops, but a touch of citrus as well, on top of light grains and caramel. Eh.

12 oz from Kroger I love the beer style of an IPA. This is a very timid version of my favorite style. The ale poured a clear gold color with a small head that dissapated. There is a slight bitter taste of the hops but rather underwhelming. I purchased a six pack but many of the APAs I had enjoyed are most robust than this IPA. It needs some work. Try cascade dry hops to add some citrus flavors. Carbonation was average.

Patrickctenchi (4449) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Pours clear amber with a silky, light tan head. Scent is faint....caramel, bread, grass. Taste is primarily grassy hops....very low bitterness. While the flavour is basically pleasant, it displays absolutely no aggression in it’s hops.... Maybe the most benign IPA ever produced.

rougeau13 (2119) - Richmond, Texas, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Very pale, dingy, clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of bready and caramel malt, and some grassy and citrus hops. Malty flavor, lightly sweet, and very lightly bitter. Decent beer, weak IPA.

demitriustown (1109) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - OCT 11, 2012
12 oz bottle: Aroma has got a nice medium hop characteristic, fruity, pine, and some faint roasted toasted malt backing. Appearance is golden with a thin white head that lingers. Taste has got a decent hop characteristic, more of a mild IPA with a subtle malt backing. Palate is medium to low carbonation in the mouth, and an aftertaste of lingering hoppiness. Overall, An Average IPA nothing special, maybe a little below average. Cheers!

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Bottle. Poured a weaker amber color with a very minimal head. Head was gone rather quick. Aroma was mild pines, spruce, and hops. Flavor was some grapefruit, grass and citrus. Very thin and watery body. Very poor for an ipa.

rollinsr (412) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - OCT 9, 2012
Pours amber with a finger of white head. Aroma is a light mixteure of hops and yeast. Taste is mostly just bitter. There is a little bit of sweetness but mostly all I get are off-flavors. This beer has a glassy and rubbery feel to it.
