COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ready to buck convention? We took the traditional IPA, originally shipped from Englad to India in the 1700s, and made it bolder and more flavorful - American style. We've added new varieties of highly aromatic American hops to create a distinctive bitterness profile and an incredible hop character. Hop on, hold tight, and enjoy the ride!

Big thanks to this beer from BlackForestCO
Pours a very slightly hazy orange to golden color with a nice white head. Smell is a bit fruity, musky and earthy hops. A unique smelling hop combination. Taset is crisp and hoppy with an almost funky mustiness but sharply flavored hop. Goes down very easily and really is a unique IPA. Pretty damn good and drinkable.

Thick soapy head over a clear amber color with huge lacing along the sides. Sweet green apples smell with some really decent hop aroma in there too. Bitter, hoppy and soapy in the flavor. Metallic and soapy slightly in the finish. Decent palate that isnt overly carbonated. Unique flavor and smell.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 9, 2008
UPDATED: APR 23, 2008 Pours a brilliant orange color with a moderate amount of white, somewhat sticky head. A bit of lacing. Nice clean hop aroma. Smells of fresh citrus and grass. Tastes of sweet citrus up front and bitter on the finish. Or maybe its the opposite. Thin mouthfeel, almost too thin. Nice carbonation. Great IPA. Nothing to crazy, nice and clean, and hoppy.

Great beer...not what I expected. Pours a slight amber and is chock full of hops. Full body owed to the balance of dry hop flavor and malt.

BlackForestCO (976) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - JAN 25, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Poured from a bottle. Poured a hazy orange color with a soapy white head that left good lacing. Spicy, piney hops and a bit of citrus on the nose. Sweet, slightly citric entry leads into a powerful piney hop hit that mellows out in the finish with some bitterness and more citrus flavor. Biting and drying on the palate, begs for you to drink more. Good beer.

Light golden color with white head. Big floral hop nose with citrus as well. Taste is much more subdued than the nose, which I’m disappointed by...but still a solid beer.

Recenty, I’ve been eager to try this beer. A BA friend visiting San Diego and was raving about it. I think Tim might have said it was a GABF gold medal weiner. Nice hoppy aroma, but much milder than I’m used to. A small hint of skunk in the aroma. Light amber yellow color. West coast grapefruit hops. Not too bitter. Very easy to drink. Doesn’t compare to Hop15, dreadnaught, summer yulesmith, but still pretty decent session beer.

Bottle. Thanks to Byrdo for sharing this with me. Pours deep orange with a small white head. Smell is of strong citrus and pine oil hops. Taste has a wonderful hop blast at the beginning balanced by light biscuity malts. Palate is medium and carbonation is low enough to allow for a more coating effect than a lively effect. This is an excellent AAmerican IPA.

Miksu (4938) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 5, 2008
12 oz bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007. Copper color with creamy head. Thick sweetish flowery and citrusy flavor with honey and some dull dry hop note also. Bittersweet and flowery-citrusy flavor with notes of salty minerals. Good basic cascade IPA.

hombrepalo (1818) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2008 Bottle @ steamboat! I was really shocked with this IPA, so crisp and tasty! Inredible hop aroma. Tastes like a citrus infused hoppy beer. Best beer I’ve had from Odell’s.
