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”.

Pours a clear dark gold, thin white head. Subtle hop aroma, not much more, but its winter here. Subtle malt and hop flavors. Has to be spot on for the style.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 25, 2010
In the bottle. Pours a murky brownish gold with a thick white off-white head. Lots of suspended yeast chunks in the beer. The hop aroma is reminiscent of a strong tea. The flavor has a nice medium hop body and really good caramel notes. Pretty good beer.

kramer (5005) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a one finger fizzy off-white head that had some decent retention due to the vigorous carbonation. The aroma is a mix between floral and slightly resiny hops with some toasty malt. With a big swirl I start to pick up a touch of cooked veggies. Rather light hoppiness up front, and there’s not a whole lot of bitterness either. This really doesn’t even hit the mark for IPA to me. The malt is light as well, leading to not much of a body. Light and fizzy with a little too much fizzy spritzy carbonation. Easily finished, but I wouldn’t make this a regular if it were available here.

bonk0076 (99) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 5, 2009
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a moderate white head. Aroma consists of pine notes, as well as some citrus notes as well, primarily pineapple and grapefruit. Taste is somewhat acidic, with the citrus and floral notes slightly balanced by a bit of caramel. Overall a decent IPA.

Seems there were a couple infected bottles out there. Mine may be tad skunky, but cracked fine. Hazy gold. Nice drippy white head. Some suspended sediment. Dank, herbal, spicy, juicy hop smell. Mouth is better than good. Smooth. Notch up from thin. Very nice hop character. Great piny bite. Mid mouth sweetness and green plant. I’ll call this better than average, less than stellar. Would be happy to try again, though.

CanIHave4Beers (3307) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 23, 2009
Pours a blonde color with a nice head and good head retention. The aroma is melony hops and cat pee, I love the hops and I hate the urine. The flavor is better with some nice biscuit malt and citrusy hops, overall pretty bitter and dry. I’d like to try it again; the whole cat pee thing really threw this one off for me though.

Ungstrup (29367) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2009
Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of sweet malt and lots of hops as well as lighter notes of citrus. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and citrus, leading to a dry, strawy, and hoppy finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2009
Buggy, cidery, almost sour ale-y nose. Some earthy hop notes, lemon and caramel are there as well. Golden orange pour with some chill haze, nice lace and a decent fizzy head. Odd, buggy, tart, with flavors of lemon and cider. Some earthy bitterness as well. Very carbonated. I wish I could have tried the version that averages 3.4 instead of the version that is an infected mess.

Draft at The Old Fashioned. Hazy orange-tan color. Thin head. Earthy hop aromas and flavor tones. Pleasant citrus hoppy character. Easy drinking, with lots of English IPA touches. Lemony sour biscuit malt. A very nice, sessionable IPA, somewhat creamy.
