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. 16.5°

Draft at San Tan with dinner. Big citrus , grapefruit tones very drinkable and refreshing. Will definitely stop by again.

ElGaucho (2156) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 3, 2014
Can. Nice fruity aroma with a fresh hop aspect. Slightly hazy dark amber. Nice frothy off white head. Smooth and somewhat creamy. A little messy but an enjoyable hoppy brew. Probably underrated. Not as good as the lumberyard IPA I had before it but not significant deficient.

radarsock (823) - Vermont, USA - MAR 26, 2014
12 oz. can supplied by agentzigzag. Many thanks! To oversized snifter, it pours a reddish copper dark hazy orange with which a sudsy, trim off-white head 1 finger in length, stood. Aromas of felt pen ink, erasers, seaweed, wet newspaper, cabbage, and pilsener malt. Tastes the same with the addition of oniony hops, Swiss cheese, burnt plastic, and collared greens. Produces a slightly salty flavor by swallow. Chewy yet velvety and incredibly drinkable. This was perfect for my mindset at the time.

ben4321 (3559) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Location: Draft at Bink’s, 3/7/14

Aroma: The aroma has some grapefruit hops, a little pine, caramel, floral, and earthy notes
Appearance: A clear copper-orange with an average off-white head and some average lace
Flavor: The flavor is much the same, light-medium sweet and medium-plus bitter
Palate: The body is medium, it has a solid mouthfeel, and a clean, lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: This is a solid IPA. It isn’t a standout in the style, but it was a more than drinkable example.

Draft at Angels Trumpet Ale House. Very bitter and balanced. 7.1 abv but feels like even more punch.

maxwelldeux (3068) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Can. Pours a very clear slightly reddish amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is definitely hop forward, with a lot of citrus elements and just some hints at floral. Taste is moderately bitter and straightforward, without much complexity to it. Perfectly fine IPA.

Ferris (2006) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 21, 2014
Can - Citrus and grapefruit. Clear gold with a decent white head. Citrus notes with some lemon and grass in the finish. The Nelson hops really show up and for me overwhelm a bit too much.

Luvystypotables (378) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Clear cooper colored beer without much head. Wonderful aroma of citrus, hops, a hint of orange and grapefruit. Balanced grapefruit taste slightly bitter palate.

Tastes like a mild torpedo. Pungent stinky aroma but delicious taste! I would gladly enjoy again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
