COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hi.P.A. is a medium-bodied groove with a fresh and fruitful nose of tympanic temptation. It begins and ends with a big hop bite that is itself forever balanced on the brink by a steady rhythm of malt. Dry-hopped for extra quenching in the face of heat and beat, itís an ideal accompaniment to chilling out, turning inward or sailing onward through the music of the night toward the dawn of the mind. Itís the liquid way to say be here now lest you never come this way again.

Golden color. Both aroma and taste have a nice hopping, with some resins, but the malt is very low. Enjoyable, easy to drink.

MiP (13799) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2011
Bottle, 6.7%. Good hoppy aroma. Clear golden colour. Small white head. The flavour is quite bitter with a good grapefruit note. Slightly rough bitterness, but not bad. A little sweetness to balance.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2008
Golden-bronze. Spicy hops with a hint of florals and bready malts. On the palate, these malts provide firm backing and have a noticeable toastiness. The hops are more subdued, with a moderate bitterness. The character is spicy, with light wood and orange peel. The finish is balanced and off-dry. Burps with a spicy hop character.

Leighton (11889) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2008
I can remember a time when I didnít like IPAs. Oh, that was many moons ago! Iíve finally come around. This brew is damn tasty. Definitely worth a try. Deep orange hue with a nice head. Good taste, nice alcohol content - what more could you want? Plus, the artwork is pretty trippy...man. It is fun to admire and those who see you holding it are likely to remark, "Whoa, cool artwork on that one!"
