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.

Aroma of hops, cirrus, grass, and chemicals. pours a golden beautifulness. the flavor is lacking the most, tastes more like a pale ale. overall, i believe that this is the best of the weinhards line.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 31, 2008
This is not an overpowering IPA, very sublte flavors, just barely a step up from an APA. Light caramel maltiness, with thin citrus hoppiness, and quite clean, but never aggressive or exciting on the palate in the slightest.

hombrepalo (1757) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2008
12oz freebee from riversideAK, thanks! Poured a golden amber color with fluffy head. Lots of lace on this IPA. Malty aroma with some hints of spices and pines. Tangy dirty taste at first then a malty caramel/toffe body. Not a bad beer.

light hop aroma, citrus, clean. clear amber with fruity white head that lingers. watery in the moth. flavor more resiny with a little orange, but soon fades into the watery. hints of caramel, but overall thin. not overpowering but clean and well balanced.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Bottle purchases at Belmont Station in Portland, OR--Clear orange-copper body with a thin yet frothy white head. Nutty, bready fruity nose. Sharp, tangy mouthfeel. Floral, creamy, bitter, oily, slightly cloying flavor. Surprisingly delicious beer.

Lizardking3 (6) - Springfield, Oregon, USA - MAY 7, 2008 does not count
Pours a copper/amber color, with little to no head. Carbonation is distinct from first glance. Goes down fairly smooth, hoppy flavor is apparent but not near a strong level. There is a hint of caramel malt, could have actually been a little bit more malt flavor as the Northwest hops in this beer tend to taste a little skunky and more malt might have balanced that a little better. Very thin, but a good value because of the extremely low price. Average.

hopdog (8521) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2008
12oz bottle acquired in trade with riversideAK. Poured a medium and clear golden color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of hay, floral hops, and earthy. Tastes were muted and consisted of citrus, caramel, and hay. Thin body.

billk (352) - Coeur díAlene, Idaho, USA - APR 25, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2008 12 oz bot. Crystal clear light copper/amber with plenty of fizzy carbonation, decent slightly off white head and lace. Fair IPA aromas but masking a definite macro background. Flavor is fair to decent American IPA up front, but followed closely by that universal, sterile, macro, soap, and baking soda taste. Some caramel malt sweetness & adequate bittering hops but mixed with the descriptions above. Into medium bodied. Tastes like the adjunct cereal grains are in here. Better than I thought it would be though, considering the price, and since I have a case minus 3 in dee fridge Iíd better like it enough to finish it off. Doubt Iíll buy it again though.

chokmah33 (118) - San Luis Obispo, California, USA - APR 24, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2008 Aroma of banana and bread. Tastes like Private reserve, but with more hops. vinegar-citrus bitter, some malts. Highly carbonated, lack-luster palate.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2008
12 oz bottle. Poured golden in color with a touch of amber. Small head quickly diminished to a lingering white band of bubbles around the glass. Aroma of piney, and floral hops. Tastes of mild hop bitterness, an underlying mild caramel sweetness. Easy drinker, but for me it could have a bit more hops.
