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.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2006 If you really like hops, there probably isnít another beer you should be drinking. It has a very crisp and distinct flavor. The first time I tried it, I wasnít sure it was for me...now...I canít quite get enough.

Hazy golden color, small white head. Flowery (trefoil) hoppy nose (no suprises here). Flowery with good malt profile, sweetish aftertaste. Well-balanced and enjoyable.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2005
(Bottled@Stockholm Beer Festival 2005) Pale golden with a small head. Pine and aromatic hops in the aroma, slightly sweet-fruity, scotch-toffeeish, very balanced. Fruity, quite complex and neutral flavor with butterscotch and malt. Long, bitter-hoppy but not aggressive palate. Medium-bodied, low-carbonated, smooth and drinkable palate. A very nicely balanced and drinkable, smooth IPA.

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2005
Bottle (650ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow and Tupalev, bottle courtesy of yours truly. Last beer of the evening, nice solid brew to wind down with. Poured clear gold with a decent white foamy diminishing head. Aroma is primarily fresh strong grapefruit hops, enough malt to balance it, and some resiny spruce. Taste follows that, finishes fairly bitter but not too aggressive - Iím no hop-head, and I quite like this one - a solid, classic west coast IPA - should be a staple in your fridge, if you can get it regularly.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2005
This is not the "aggressive" beer that itís brother, Arrogant Bastard is. Less risks are taken with the flavor. But iltís still a fine example of the style. The color of this beer is pretty incredible bright orange gold. The bitter is extremely well-developed and balances nearly perfectly with the malts and the fine barley finish. My favorite IPA to date.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2005
Bottle. Copper colour with a big off-white head. Sweet hoppy, pine tree, fruity aroma and taste. Medium to full body and a bitter dry finish.
