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.

PhilJackson80 (379) - Oklahoma, USA - NOV 17, 2013
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 12 oz Bottle. The beer pours to a alight amber/orange color with a small white head. The aroma has caramel, resin, a little earthy. Thge taste is light in body with a malt forward front end flavor & virtually no hop bitterness on the finish. I wouldn’t really call this an IPA for my taste, more of a lager to me. Overall not one i would buy again.

pours a golden copper color with a small white head. the aroma is very nice you can pick up the cascade hops. the taste is very good, you can pick up the hops but it is very well balanced and you can pick up some sweetness of the malt as well. this would be the perfect ipa for being just getting into craft beer because it is not too overpowering.

Strangebrewer (902) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2013
bottle. Poured clear medium amber with an average beige head. Grassy hop aroma. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel with a tart dry finish. Earthy hop flavour, grapefruit citrus notes with a bit of roasted malt. A nice balanced beer, not overly dry.

Straight from the bottle at a friend’s party. Couldn’t assess the appearance. Minimal insight into the aroma. This beer is emblematic of those that made me think I didn’t like IPAs. Weak hoppy flavor, malt-forward, uninteresting. Not recommended.

Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle. Very light golden color on this, delivers a decent little fuzzy head. Light and pleasantly quaffable, comes off with a bit more of a malty character than you’d expect for the label, bit starchy, too perhaps. Decent center of the scale pale ale. (#5298, 10/19/2013)

Watered down IPA. Got it at O’Charlies. So....I guess it is a macro lovers IPA? As a shirt of mine says, "Don’t Drink Pee" and this is not.

BeerandBlues2 (10074) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours clear dark amber with a large, creamy off-white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is toast and nutty malt with earthy and minty hops, and pear esters. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness with supporting malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

MrBunn (2508) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2013
On tap. This is to IPA what the Giants are to football this year: directionless, uninteresting, uninspiring and completely forgettable. Only problem I can see with that comparison is that the Giants might be able to improve a little.

dasdan (235) - BELGIUM - SEP 27, 2013
12 FL oz bottle from a shop in Zion in US. Clear light orange body with a white head. Malty aroma. Taste is bread, a little sweet, soft bitter finish. Strong carbonation. Not an IPA, but rather and pilsner. ***

Travlr (13412) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Bottle at the South Carolina BBQ competition. Didn’t really see the color or detect an aroma because we drank it from the bottle. Taste is slightly peppery caramel. Not much to this one.
