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.

Draft at safeco field. Fitting that so many ballpark memories of my dad come back and the beer in my hand is a hankís--even if it isnít an hwpr. I love you, pop, and i miss you. Letís go, Ms. Pours a hazy medium gold with a dense white head. Buttery caramel nose. Slick medium body with soft carb. Ultra buttery spastic fantastic bowl of popcorn mid palate. Is this ballyard lines or from the keg this way? Disinclined to do much investigation. Washed down that ballyard dog pretty good though. God, on days like this i love baseball so much it hurts.

Enjoyed at Moniraeís Casual Dining & Entertainment in Pennellville, NY when my band played there. Poured a golden-amber colour with some creamy lacing and a nice coat that topped the brew. Mild caramel and light hop aromas. Decent bitterness with the caramel malts balancing things. Grass notes from the hop. Decent easy-drinking IPA with nice caramel malts. Was nice to have something different in a bar with all of these other macros from A-B and Labatt.

Draft at Press Box. Pours clear dark gold with medium white head. Aroma is very faint citrus. Taste is slightly bitter with a bit of malts and not much else going on. Lingering bitter finish. Not great.

Amber brew with decent white head that died off quickly. Smells of light floral hops. Tastes of floral hops with some notes of the malts. Not enough hops to be a real IPA, more of a APA. Overall a decent brew.

Jow (2258) - New York, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle at Chelsea piers for some midday bowling. Horribly priced but thatís not breweries fault. Nose of sour hops and some ligt citrus. Tastes slightly dank, some wood, lemons, pine, vanilla. Not all that fresh tasting

alexanderj (3332) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle; poured a copper color. Aroma of grapefruit, flowers and perfume. an ok aroma, but a bit too perfume like for me. Taste was a bit all over the place and somewhat strange. Pretty robust, but not a lot of quality flavor. Some of that perfume like quality in there. not as bad as expected, but hardly great

It doesnít smell like most IPAís. It has a slightly skunky smell to it. The head is weak and disappeared quickly. It is a light golden, lighter than most IPAís that Iíve had. The spices and taste are weak as it tastes more like a lager weak lager. Although not terrible, it is disappointing coming from an IPA.
