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.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - MAR 31, 2006
Bottle. Pours a golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is of some grainy malt and skunk weed, smells like shitty pot basically. Flavor starts out a bit malty, kinda grainy again and fades into some decent bitterness. Lightr to medium body, a little rough going down. Not all that great.

blipp (6072) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Bottle. Pours orange with a white head. Hoppy nose with notes of flowers and fruit and even a hint of alcohol. Thin/medium body. Hops stick in your mouth. Taste is mostly orange and a bit peachy, with some other fruits. It sounds like a good combination, but it didnít really work for me. Bitter finish.

Drake (8503) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Bottle. Pours amber with a medium sized head. Very nice lacing. Mild hops in the aroma. Hops take a while to materialize out of the sweet goopy malty mess. This one is muddled and all off-kilter. Too bad.

beerbill (3384) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUL 7, 2008
12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy golden amber with a moderate yellow-white head that disappeared after about a quarter of the glass. Light aroma of pine and a few very light notes of citrus. The flavor starts out with some weak malt, which is followed by a thin pine flavor. This beer lacks the resinous body associated with pine in better-made beers. Thin and lacks depth. No citrus in the flavor at all. Bitter at the finish. A disappointing IPA.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - FEB 6, 2009
12oz bottle from the new release. Hazy honey with a medium, fluffy head. Aroma: malty biscuit and honey, nutty, mild hops (noble spice, orange, grapefruit). Flavor: cream, buttered popcorn, bitter bread crust, bitter finish with a sharp citrus peel character, light alcohol in finish. Palate: medium and prickly. Overall impression: weird buttery cracker malt flavor, not much hop flavor, and a bit more bitterness than the beer can handle. This is just a mediocre pale ale with a touch more bitterness.

yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - JUN 17, 2009
A bitter and simple IPA. Some balanced sweetness with a load of not so good hops. I donít like the odd bitterness, a little to metallic.

mattkirschner (6) - - JAN 21, 2013 does not count
Aroma quite fruity at first, but donít inhale before you sip. Ick. Nice color, moderate head at best. Taste leaves something to be desired and lingers in a not so good way. Not terrible, but not especially good.

jpkeskinen (216) - FINLAND - MAR 25, 2013
The rye in the beer brings nice flavours of malts and makes a good combination with the hops.

Hazy yellow. Minimal head. Aroma is lacking. Some hard orange taste but almost candied orange. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
