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.

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.

Draft at the source courtesy of staff, thanks! An extra pour. Clear golden color, fluffy white head. Aroma of citrus. Taste is bright full pineapple, lemon. Very tasty.

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

Theydon_Bois (12178) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2013
Tap at pFriem, Hood River, 24/05/13. Listed as 7.2% ABV. Clear light golden with a thin white head. Good lacing ensues. Nose is light floral hops, juicy hops, hint of piss, grapefruit, orange pith. Taste comprises bitter grapefruit, hops, light pine, grass, orange pith. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, hop bitterness in the finish. Decent IPA.

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.

500 ml bottle, one of those awesome new ones. Looks amazing. Pours a bight copper color with a medium white head. A big dank fruity hop nose. The flavor is resin, huge dank fresh hops, caramel, candied oranges, pine. Very flavorful, the intensity is there, but this is smooth as well. Really a lot like Pliny. Wow! Blown away. Oranges, more dankness. Bitterness mixed with sweet bursting hops. Lovely.

Suttree (5432) - 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...

Amber in color, hazy with a thin white fluffy head. Super IPA flavor and finish. Great IPA and terrific yeast and citrus finish. Great Job pFriem Brewing.

maxwelldeux (4138) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAY 26, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy copper color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is floral and resiny and super hop-forward, and is just really inviting for the hop head. Taste is lightly bitter and a bit tingly with the afterburn of the hops. Really fresh and pleasantly crisp. NICE brew.

MrChopin (3575) - 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.
