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!

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 17, 2007
Bottle. Pours clear dark yellow with a small white head that sticks around. Moderate carbonation. Aroma is juicy, fruity hops and sweet maltiness. Flavor is fruity, very fruity hops and a very sweet backbone. Herbal hoppy notes poke through, finish is a little more refined with a green bitterness and light mintiness. A little too sweet for my IPA tastes, but for an appeal-to-the-masses IPA this one will work.

I am absolutely bias in favor of this IPA. Even if they’re biting on the style of Anchor’s bottle label with the elephant. It is GOOD, oh so good. This is a hoppy IPA with a good old bang of hop. The battle in your mouth is over your soul. Enjoy my friends. There are times the boozy taste will hit, just swallow. This is one of my Favorite IPA’s. Yet another great reason to visit Fort Collins, Colorado.

Grapefruit and satsuma. Nice bitterness as required for 7%. Not malty at all. Green tea?

commonmac (414) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Tap at Old Chicago Plymouth. Pseudo pint glass. Always a big fan of this beer so surprised I haven’t rated it to date. Hazy copper color with solid lacing and frothy head. Aroma heavy on citrus and hops. Pine and resin present. Bright, refreshing taste with a pleasant mouthfeel. Slight bitterness with a good balance of subtle sweetness. A go to option when available.

Look: pours a light orange color. Cloudy. Bright white head. Smell: juicy fruit gum. Grapefruit. Orange. Pineapple. Taste: grapefruit. Orange. Tangerine. Big citrus fruit. Pineapple. Caramel. Feel: extremely dry. Medium carbonation. Thin mouth feel. Leaves a nice film on the mouth. Overall: great beer. Like the overwhelming hops and and how it adds to the dryness. Also like how it makes you want another sip after you drink it. First drank: home 12/7/14

Obfuscate (108) - Minneapolis, - NOV 22, 2014
Some citrus and orange on the nose. Fair amount of carbonation. This is pretty refreshing almost drinks like an APA but at 7%. This would be a good one if you want something strong and drinkable.
