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.

nice bold hop aroma with some concentrated oil aroma as well. clear honey color, uneven white head. tropical passion fruit base bordering on artificial, solid clean hop flavor that finishes clean and true. perfectly respectable on a budget.

Stubby screwtop bottle. How many other IPAís can you say that about? I saw this badboy in the half-rack last week, but given my prior experiences I wasnít going to invest in twelve beers from Henry. Thankfully, the local grocery store came thru with singles today. Pours clear light copper with a fading off-white head that translates into sheets of lace as the glass empties. Citrus, pine and just a touch of grass in nose. Body tends to light, carbonation tends to medium. A little bit of toffee in the taste, as well as some fruit, but with the light body itís not long before weíre off to the finish. Lingering pine and grapefruit pith finish. Not a bad beer, and priced right.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2008 A new beer from Henry Weinhard. Iíve not been a fan of their other brews but this is a good one. Somewhere between an APA and an IPA this is a good session IPA. Pours goden-copper from the bottle with a decent head. Pentiful lacings. Good piney hop aroma. Nice palate, finishes bitter and dry. Not for big-hop IPA lovers but a good value brew. Well balanced for the type with the piney-citrus hops winning in this instance. I paid $5.49 US for the sixer and the short case was on sale for $9.99 US. IBU is 45.

12 oz bottle. Darker golden, orange. White head that leaves a thick lace on the glass. Slightly hoppy aroma, less of a scent than I expected. Somewhat grassy nose. Flavor starts of with a nice balance that is brought around to the hops pretty quickly. Long lingering bitter hop flavor. There is some harsher bitterness that I donít like. Iím not sure what hop left that, but itís there. I was curious what the hops were...lo-and behold the henryís site lists: US Challenger, Cascade, Simcoe, and Summit Hops.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2012 12oz bottle: pours golden brown with decent off white head, aroma has decent amount of hops, slightly stale. Taste is not a real hoppy IPA, slightly stale, nothing great.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2008 New one from Henryís Typical orange colour of an IPA with a nice enough looking slightly off-white head. Aroma is certainlly hoppy but really doesnt grab your attention, there is in fact a little unpleasantness underneath, but i had tio strain to catch it..so OK. Flavour is quite OK the hopping isnt too agressive and there is a nice enough complmentary semi-sweet maltiness, in deed the hops coat the tongue near the end, not bad. I liked the palate on this beer,not really watery but easy to drink, nice lingering hoppy after taste. Not bad at all at this price range ( under $10 a 12 pack). I am rather enjoying it. A good lighter IPA for the hotter months ( its is a Spring/Summer release). Overall excellent value for money.
