COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
XXXX IPA is a non-traditional American IPA with a brilliant copper color and the classic citrus nose of Cascade hops. This beer demonstrates a unique balance of malt-inspired, delicate red grapefruit sweetness and lingering hop dryness. The OG and final Alc./Vol. provide the structure and body to balance the harmony of distinct flavors.Cascade, Warrior,Summit and Glacier hops are used for bittering and Cascade hops are added for dry hopping after fermentation. This hop blend is well balanced with malted wheat, pale ale, crystal, and caramel malts. To full enjoy all the flavors, this ale is best drunk at 55 degrees Fahrenheit. This beer pairs well with Cajun dishes, blackened fish, and BBQ. XXXX draws its name from the British brewing convention of using X’s to denote style. 70 BU,s, 1.092 OG. 22 Plato

oh6gdx (20274) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2009
Bottled. Amber colour, mediumsized head. Aroma is malty hops, some alcohol and grass as well as some slight spices notes. Flavour is quite much the same, but has some slight glueish notes disturbing the otherwise nice while. Seems like the Pugleys Signature Series are actually very nice and interesting compared to Shipyards "normal" beers.

omhper (19307) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2009
Bottled. Clear amber, rich creamy head. Grapefruity nose. Very sweet with clean hard mouthfeel. The hops collide badly with the immense swetness, making it harsh and inky. Some butterscotch tries to round the wost edges of this simplistic and unrefined beer, but it’s all in vane. Finishes with pine needles and inky bitterness. With more ink than hop aroma and really poor malt structure it’s the least enjoyable IIPA I can remember.

Clear amber beer. Thin cream head. Slightly soft palate. Rich mix of sweetish malt, deep rich hops and aniseed alcohol. Unusually for an IPA there is some bubblegum ester. Hangs together well though and there is a little fruit and alcohol in the finish.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2011
Bottle at På Besök, Malmö; 4 months before the bbd
Amber color, clean; medium-sized creamy head. I expected a hoppy aroma and instead I get a mild aroma of fruits and candies, then some sweaty hops. Body of medium strength, with rather boring caramel and toffee flavor; bold bitterness but quite purposeless. Some alcohol in the final. Booze.
