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.

mundane as it gets. Sweet malt, insipid malt flavor, no hops. No character. Cashing in.

shrubber85 (10669) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle. Honey, barley malt, and orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet orange malt and lightly bitter orange peel flavor. Medium body. I seem to remember Henry Weinhard beers were a whole lot better in the mid 90s - most likely because they beat most of the crap available back then.

hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2014
Bottle... Clear, brilliant, amber pour with a small, wispy, white head. Good retention. Restrained bouquet - tough to figure out - caramel and cereal grains? Full-bodied and harsh with average carbonation. The flavor is all about acrid, acutely bitter hops. Lengthy, violently bitter, astringent finish. This beer’s hop bill was not well-chosen. Almost medicinal. Brewed cleanly, but not pleasant.

adnielsen (10484) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle @ home, courtesy of jcnielsen. Thanks Jetson! Pours a hazy burnt orange appearance with an off white head. Earthy, herbal, woody, grassy hoppy, biscuity aroma. A bit tangy, lightly fruity, chewy cracker, pale malty, herbal, grassy flavor. Bleh.

slowrunner77 (10077) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 22, 2014
British malty backbone. Clear amber orange in color, feels more like a pale than an iPa. The hops are nice, just too mellow and not enough of them in there to come out on top o the malt."

djd07 (10002) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear orange gold with a frothy white head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is floral hops and pine. Thin mouthfeel with sweet hop and honey with light bitter finish.

DocLock (9982) - 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.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - APR 1, 2013
Tap at Rhino. Clear orange pour. Good white lacing. Nose is red apples, baked apple. Taste is metallic, mealy apple. Very chalky, powdery mouthfeel. Loads of bland mealy apple.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Pint on draft at Flipdaddy’s. Clear yellow orange color. Good thin off-white head. Good lace. Flavor is pretty mild for an IPA. More like a moderately hoppy pale ale, with a weak malt back bone. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry texture. Decent bitterness. OK, but weak for an IPA
