COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India Pale Ale: Old school version of an IPA. Still balanced; not a ‘one trick pony’ pale. Named after the country song “It’s hard to kiss the lips at night that chew your ass out all day long”.

ReggieDunlap (3018) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Pours clear gold with a huge white head...nice retention and lacing. Aroma is very mild with light citrus...orange...and earthy spice. Flavor is also a bit mild...decent bitterness with mild citrus. Mouthfeel is light/medium and the finish has an earthy bitterness...too light for my taste in IPAs. Drinks more like a pale ale.

sloth (2451) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Small white head with fair retention and lace. Lightly hazy gold hued ale. Nose is very tame. Light citrus, light malts. Body is light, low carbonation, lil metallic. Grainy malts greet you followed by tame citrus and pine notes, lightly metallic, astringent. Dry finish, uneventful.

jlruthven (541) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours golden orange, almost no head. Slight haze. Nose is quite juicy: bits of grapefruit and clementine. Taste is much more subdued: light, tingling hops, effervescent citrus, hint of pine. Uncomplicated, unremarkable. Quite sessionable.

twindadplus2 (587) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Hazy, copper orange color with a small tight beige head. Sweet, creamy roasted malt aroma with a light citrus touch. Strong pine and citrus flavors up front fading into creamy malt at the end and a long, dry finish. on the full end of medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel throughout and light carbonation. Really nice.

presario (4591) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 27, 2011
Bottle. Thin white head and lacing on slightly cloudy dark amber. Aroma is grain, light swetness and light woody hops. Sweetish light woody flavor. Kind of plain in the IPA world.

Madtown1 (13) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 23, 2011
A-Hazy golden color S-Pine, citrus, and nice toasted malt T-The pine/citrus hop burst gets you right away...pow... then a nice malt backbone.. finishes a bit dry and with little aftertaste. Nice balance and hop forward. M-Medium body...carbination was spot on. D-This is an enjoyable IPA. Not too hop foward as some of the others out there...but very drinkable with a nice body. I am glad I have five more of these to enjoy.This is an enjoyable beer. Serving type: bottle

Tmoney99 (10444) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 27, 2011
GTMW 2011. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate simcoe hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bitter flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid beer.

tmoreau (2308) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2012 On tap at Argus BarGrille in Madison, WI. for afternoon, pre-GTOM crawling. Dispensed to a shaker with a hazed, orange/amber hue, abundant, off white head foam, and good cling to the web-like lacing. The aroma was light to the nose, but still a noticeable amount of floral, sweet fruit, and citrus notes, with maybe a touch of resin on the back side. Medium bodied, moderately bittered, and a nice balance of smooth malt and hops. Enjoyably quaffable! This year, before GTOM ticket sales, stopped at the Old Fashioned in Madison and had a shaker full. The citrus was more as grapefruit & lemon, the carbonation was lively, and the hop bitterness lightly lingered into the finish. Again, a good session IPA.
