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!

Haleiwa, Hi - Malama Market - 12 oz can. Dark orange pour, thick white head that leaves good lacing. Nice pleasant spruce aroma. Flavor has a nice solid sweet caramel-like back end to balance out the grapefruity citrus. Thick, creamy mouthfeel. Pleasantly surprised - glad I bought a whole six.

12 oz. (thanks to Austin for bringing me one of these). Golden orange pour with a thick off-white head. Aroma of pine and tangerines. Good bitter hop flavor. Not too sweet but still nicely balanced. This is a very good IPA. It will not blow you away but it is very good.

greig (253) - Hamilton, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 11, 2009
A really nice, complex, malty IPA. It’s backed up by a very English hop character. The aroma is a little lacking, but the palate is a playground of subtle flavours. Nice earthy bitterness with notes of marmalade, and sweet malts creating a comforting sensation. Not the US IPA I was expecting, but a very nice beer anyway.
