COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When the first Pale Ales were sailed around the Cape to arrive in India in the early 18th century, outcries of “Zounds! Jolly good! and Huzzah!” were heard across the East Indian subcontinent. Similar exclamations are to be expected when sniffing the piney aroma and tasting the big hops, huge citrus and candy-like malt of Pfriem’s own IPA. Drink up, Guv’nor.

fiulijn (14403) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 30, 2014
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 5+14 oz
Hazy blond color with compact persistent head. Peculiar aroma, very nice: it’s fruity, grapey, possibly also cheesy (goat cheese). The lean pale malt body is a great choice, still it conveys quality; hop explosion, very resiny, bitter, quite fruity and piney.
Great, straight, modern IPA.

Light gold, fresh grapefruity, orangey nose, lean pale malts, lots of bitterness, fresh citrusy character, very good balance. Near perfect.

WheatKing (1296) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2014
On tap at Garricks Head, Victoria, Canada. Translucent copper, white head. Dank nose, grassiness, clean malt, some crystal but not too much. Flavour has more dankness, grape, very clean, not as good as their blond ipa but not many beers are.

MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 25, 2014
rich gold, thin puffy white head, ample lacing. Pungent hop oil nose, lightly skunky with huge white grapefruit, lightly peppery. Sweeter flavor mars hops, oily with orange and soap early, more fruit mid with pine across the light anise finish, sticky and thin.

harrymel (1500) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2013
On tap at Waddell’s. A glassy apricot color with just an etched top of foam. Smells like grapefruit, some other citrus, a little peach, but mostly like grapefruit. Flavor is nice and bitter with a solid hoppy flavor, plenty more of that grapefruit, some lighter bready malts, good bitter finish. Really solid tasting beer for me. Medium bodied with moderate on hi carb that offers a slight burn then finishes wet. I like this beer, I think it is a quintessential PNW IPA. Just refreshing to get away from he Citra, maltodextrin, sweet East Coast style going around.

Suttree (5134) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Clear gold, nice white head. Smells bready, peppery, and toasty. Nice crisp palate. with a tasty, peppery hop bite. Clean finish. Pretty darn good with tapas...

Tap. Dark gold, white head. Hoppy bitterness from the start. Not much complexity. Balance could have been better.
