India Pale Ale was originally intended to stand up over long voyages, loaded with hops to keep bacteria levels low. Our IPA may no longer have to endure long voyages, but we would never think about changing this recipe—to the delight of our hophead fans. Taking cues from lessons learned for making our pale ale, our IPA achieves an unequaled balance from each ingredient to form a stable and strong body with a clean aftertaste.

Notes from my backlog: Hazy deep orange pour with a fairly malty aroma- rich bready caramel and a mild piny spiciness. Mild carbonation. Oxidized, peppery malts- the hops are faded. Some light orangey citrus notes, but again are faded. Past it’s prime.

On tap at standing beer bar. Pours out an amber color topped with a sand head. Nose is grapefruit citrus hops and a caramel sweetness. Taste is more of the sweetness and a nice citrus hop.

jinroh (1103) - ESTONIA - MAR 28, 2015
Tap at BEERNISTA TOKYO 2015. Pours hazy, cloudy amber, white top. Aroma is quite fruity, even sweet. Taste has some tropical hops that are nicely balanced with the beers malty body. Fruits are maybe overly ripen and making the beer a tad bit too sweet Still nicely drinkable, good stuff

Aroma is white bread, citrus and grainy malts. The flavor is citrus, earthy malts, bread, a small hint of chocolate and a tangy/bitter finish.

med amber color. Nice caramel and grapefruit nose. Med body, very flowery, grapefruit. Well balanced, but not too aggressive US IPA. Caramel just lingers at the end. Nice.

jonno (2467) - JAPAN - MAR 9, 2013
Tap. This is really good. A fairly hefty American hop profile, balanced by a smooth, understated but firm English IPA body. About as balanced a ’hop bomb’ as you will get.Definitely think this needs to be drunk on tap.

maekchu (3400) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 26, 2013
Draught at Qbrick (from tasting notes). Real ale, hand pump. Spicy citrus aroma , with some malt, and yeasty notes. Hazy orange color. Spice in initial(coriander), oranges / A bit thin in mid palate / Long finish, with a slightly metallic aftertaste. Good but not overly complex

reebtogi (5593) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 8, 2012
500ml bottle pours a deep golden orange color with a huge white head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits and citrus and earthy hops. Taste is a pronounced sweetness that overpowers the earthy and citrusy hop bitterness to some degree. This beer has an interesting blend of flavors and is quite well done, but has a little bit too much sweetness for the style.
