COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American Brewers have re-defined this traditional English Ale with an intense bitterness derived from the distinct citrus/pine character of Pacific Northwest hops. A dry, crisp malt character and aggressive alcohol make our I.P.A. a Hop-Heads Passion. 16.5į

12oz can, thanks BuckNaked. Crystal clear amber body atop medium off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, some pine, light cattiness. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, pine, light catty. Light-medium body, light resin. Itís a smooth drinker that hides its alcohol well. But it also seems a bit lighter in the hoppiness that I want from an IPA. So Iíd consider it something of a higher alcohol APA.

gad905 (162) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2014
Can bought from the store at the entrance to Grand Canyon National Park, drank at BDSB 3 weeks later. 4 months old when drank (shoulda checked the date!). Pours clear orange amber, offwhite head lasts ok. Smells of twiggy caramel malt, some citrus hops. Tastes sweet, caramel burnt sugar, moderate bitter, juicy orange fruit, some sweet tropical notes too. I can tell this beer was decent fresh but itís suffered a bit from being sat for months in a warm shop.

Clear red orange pour with a white head and great lacing. Juicy tropical fruit and citrus aroma with some pine. Taste is pineapple, citrus rind, caramel, and a bitter pine finish and aftertaste. Medium body. Can is about 3 months old and still very good.

12 oz can from Whole Foods Market - Chandler. Burnt orange and clear appearance with a lacy white head. Pretty similar to their Devilís Ale. A little more bitterness and a touch dryer. Slightly bigger body with a sweeter finish. I think I like Devilís Ale just a little better.

Can from AJís. Copper with lasting head and lace. Pine forest and biscuity malt aroma. Medium sweet fruit and biscuity malts with assertive piney earthy woody lingering bitterness. Medium full body. Very good/excellent.

vyvvy (4134) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Pours clear golden copper with an off-white head. The aroma has dry caramel, earthiness, some grapefruit and woodiness. It has a medium crisp rough body with a moderate amount of flowing carbonation. The flavor starts with dry caramel malt, earthy hops and astringency. The finish gets even more astringent, has heavy minerals and is on the metallic side. Decent IPA.

rumproasts (3232) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 26, 2014
sample from can at 2014 houston big brew fest. Amber with small head. Another rather generic offering. Medium malt body with substantial hops. Hops are a bit dull. Average at best.

On tap at brewery...have yet to try can. Fairly good aroma of pine and grass. Some what lean in body but not bad for style. Very drinkable IPA

Right from the can. Taste is a mix of bold flavors, featuring booze, dough, hops and citrus. Nice.
