COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and keg: Filtered
Launched: August 1997
Hops: Magnum, Chinook & Centennial
By definition, an India Pale Ale is hoppier and higher in alcohol than its little brother, pale ale-and we deliver in spades. Now one of the most well respected and best-selling IPAs in the country, this golden beauty explodes with citrusy flavor and hop aromas, all perfectly balanced by a subtle malt character. This crisp, extra hoppy brew is hugely refreshing on a hot day, but will always deliver no matter when you choose to drink it.

This beer pours a golden honey color and leaves a very thick white lace that clings to the side od the glass. The floural hoppiness is ever so present along with the citrus, grapefruit, honey, grassy notes and cloves. This beer starts with a grapefruit hoppy bitterness on the palate then slowly takes you to a smooth sweet honey clove flavored finished with a mild citrus squirt. This beer is well rounded and amazing, by far one of the standards for American IPA.

ATOmemphis (200) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - JAN 19, 2006
Poured a golden, slightly cloudy color. Had an amber tinge to it. Head was a creamy white foam that lingered before dissipation. Enormous hop aroma. Made with bits of real panther, so you know its good, --> thatís the hop smell strength we are talking about. The taste is richly bitter and the mouthfeel is very nice. Very much enjoyed this brew. Wish it was cheaper because iím "ballin on a budget" until summer...

Aquilo (560) - Berkeley, California, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Lots of hops, but light and pleasant overall. Golden amber with a fluffy head and some nice lacing. The aroma is light and hoppy; someone mentioned grapefruit and I agree. Strong hop and citrus flavor, with a light satin finish.

Golden orange beer with a small off white head. Hoppy aroma with a pineapple/ citric fruityness. Sweet, light malty flavor with a citric hoppyness and a dry bitter finish. Thanx to Luke for bringing this one to Denmark.

Hops Hops Hops and more Hops. Not much citrus because I believe they do not use Cascade. Spicy maybe Columbus Hops. Very Very crisp dry due to high %. Best aromas as well. Very likable beer

thornecb (4666) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 7, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2006 Poured into a shaker. 1-inch white head with nice lacing as it dissipates to a solid base across the glass. Very crisp, hoppy aroma with hint of spruce. Golden with a little haze. Very well-balanced. A little fizzy with mild bitter finish. A very enjoyable brew.

Deep amber color. Small off-white head mostly diminishing. Aroma is strong hoppy aroma . I love an IPA. In this case this is one of the better varieties of an IPA. Strong hoppy, bitter taste but with substantial malt backbone. Full bodied. Love the palate
