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”.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2012 Beer number one of my IPA re-rate project. Particulate laden amber with an extra large meringue taupe head that fades slowly. Aroma is grainy with citrus, caramel and bready notes. Taste of floral and citrus hops, orange, mild grains and moderate bitterness.

One gusher of a bottle, this thing could stand next to old faithful at Yellowstone and fit right in. Explosion of head in every minuscule pour, it took a long time to fill up the glass. Golden orange-red with suspended thingamajiggies hanging out underneath the sixty-two finger off-white head that just sort of sat there looking like a beer float…. I’d kiss your lips but you won’t let me… Citrus, orange and floral hops mix it up with caramel malt to make a decent aroma. Caramel, citrus hops and milt fruit make up the tastes. Over carbonated for sure and bit abrasive, this one finishes up moderately bitter.

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 3, 2009
courtesy of abends. pours golden with thick gouging white head. To the point where it was over carbonated and could not even drop beer without everything foaming up. Aroma of grassy/herbal hops, fresh flavor of hops, some fruit notes apple/citrus. Taste, hoppy, citrusy, light yeast, herbal.

12oz bottle from Woodman’s in Madison. Pours clear golden orange with white head. Tons of sediment. Aroma is orange, hops, and caramel malts. Flavor is hops, orange and other citrus flavors, and some caramel malt. Finishes bitter with decent mouthfeel. Average IPA.

pepsican (1440) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Yellow pour with a small white head. Citrus and grain aroma. Flavor has orange, cream, plastic hops, dirt, and goofy caramel malt. Some flowers come through as well. Finishes ehhhh, no thanks.

Scubatrip (596) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2009
From the bottle, pours a translucent orange-yellow with a very thin white bubbly head. Aroma is light and of citrus and floral hops. Taste is the same, pretty light, while floral flavor hops dominate the palate. Thin and watery, this has some flavor, and I could drink a few of these, but there are other IPAs I would choose above this one.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2008
Bottle picked up on a beer trip. Pours a golden orange body with a white head. Citrus, with a mild malt backbone, grassy hop character, thin and simple.

lb4lb (2487) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 11, 2008
Bottle in trade from HogWildLiquor, I believe... Pours a kind of dirty orange color with a liasting beige head. Smell is fruity and citrusy with earthy and orange smells. Nice maltiness to the flavor with a tea like character as well as a bit of an astringent earthy hop flavor. A bit dirty tasting, actually. Medium bodied and with normal carbonation. Smells better than it tastes.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 20, 2008
Pours a semi-cloudy orange colour with a small white head. Aroma is strong of fresh stinky hops, over ripe grapefruit, lemon and cracked black pepper. Taste is full, mildly acidic and fruity, well hopped and citrusy. Tastey all around.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Aroma: Strongly coniferous hops, a little citrus thrown in. Appearance: Cloudy amber, a finger’s worth of off-white head leaves rings of lace with each sip. Flavor: Nice hop complexity, mostly piney, but also citrus, floral. Bitterness offset by fruit-juicy sweetness. Occasionally caramelly. Finishes bittersweet. Palate: A little thin, but more fruit-juicy than watery.
