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 (17990) - 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.

Leighton (17258) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle shared at Kenny’s 20K tasting - London. Many thanks to Dave for this one! Pours clear gold with a foamy, white head. Plenty of piney hops are present, along with crackery pale malts, honey and ripening citrus fruits. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Somewhat dry on the finish, with some pale bread, touches of alcohol, piney bitterness, citrus rind. Nice IPA.

brokensail (15215) - San Leandro, California, USA - JUN 29, 2015
Bottle @ RBSG 2015. Just a couple bucks at Whole Foods. Light golden colored beer with a white head. Plenty of orange and grapefruit hop aromas to this. A bit of pine, grass, and subtle tropical fruits along with a bready malt base. The flavor has more malt than I expected from the aroma, but isn’t overly sweet. Good citrusy hops and pine bitterness. Dry finish with some grass and cracker. Pretty solid beer.

mcberko (12006) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 21, 2013
On tap at pFriem, pours a clear golden copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of pine, with a bit of floral and grapefruity hops -- very aromatic. Flavour brings out a blast of piney hops, with some citrus and grapefruit cutting in later on. Just enough balance from crackery malts to back the high dosage of hops. Finishes very bitter and dry. Definitely an IPA for more extreme hop heads. Excellent.
