India Pale Ale was developed in Burton, England, as a "Super-Premium" hoppy pale ale around 1800. The extra strength in alcohol and hops helped preserve the beer on its long export journeys to India and beyond. The style developed a following worldwide. Its flavor begins with a smooth, malty creaminess followed with a big burst of dry-hop flavor from English Kent Golding Hops. It then finishes with a lingering yet pleasant bitterness.

Big Swell IPA is a fresh handcrafted India Pale Ale brewed with huge amounts of American hops and malted barley...dry hopped to perfection!

The appearance and aroma of this brew was what stood out. Golden and clean with a great head. On the nose there’s the scent of freshly peeled oranges and tangerine. It wasn’t as bitter as I would have liked it to be. Flavors of citrus and pine are present but it didn’t have much of a finish.

In can; Clear gold with a white head when poured. Crispy hops aroma with scent of honey and flowers. The taste is quite bitter, and very, very hoppy. I almost got a cordial taste ... really didn’t enjoy this one at all.

Pale, honey amber pour, with a good-sized white head. Pine resin, mandarin and a bit o’ honey on the nose. Sharply bitter grassy flavor, balanced more with honey than caramel - this is a lighter one, and one I imagine I’d appreciate if I were on the beach. Full-bodied - not lacking anything - this is definitely good.

Braudog (6042) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Draft at Yard House Honolulu. Amber color with a firm but average head. Moderate dry hop character, but not enough to stand up to a west coast drinker’s expectations. Drinkable enough, and at 6.2% one that could sneak up on you. (#4009, 11/2/2010)

Gold with creamy white head and lace. Nice resin aroma. Sweet malt with a medium resiny bitter finish. Medium bodied but fizzy. Nice beer.

shockingly good. I had heard bad news about this one from someone who toured the brewery lately and I am glad to report that the its bad review was greatly exaggerated. I kept wondering where they got such great hops to make this drink- - do they grow them on the islands? Either way - stellar.

12 ounce can from Total Wine in Tustin ($2.49). Pours a murky orange-amber with two fingers of off-white foam. Mild aroma of fruity hops (citrus and pineapple). Flavor is hoppy with some nice tropical fruit (more pineapple but not very sweet) and a solid caramel-y malt backbone and a vegetable quality. Finish has a nice level of both sweetness and bitterness. Solid IPA. (295, 406)

A top tier IPA. Large amount of bitterness that doesn’t overwhelm the palate. Good sparkle to it. Pours a nice orange color.
