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.

lamas (1443) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 18, 2005
22 oz. bottle. Enjoy by: 12/07/05. A clear orange body with a thick and fluffy light-tan head at the top. Lots of pine and sap in the otherwise citrusy aroma. Fresh grapefruits, lemons and oranges in there too. Pretty floral. Itís just incredibly mouth-watering! Solidly medium-bodied. Fairly one-sided without too much sweetness. Piney and grassy with lots of grapefruits and orange rinds. The bitter hops tingle the tongue throughout. Crisp and clean. A lingering dry finish. I canít believe it took me so long to try this.

This is a great beer. I bought one of their big bottles at Bevmo on a whim. I poured it into my big glass and was immediately intrigued by the hoppy, almost floral aroma. The color is beautiful golden amber, with a plentiful head that stuck around for a while. The flavor was citrusy with some sweetness to it, with a crisp bitter finish and a long lasting hoppy aftertaste. If you love hops, this is a beer for you. The complexity of this beer is what is striking about it. The palate was fairly average, but Iím a cream ale kind of girl, Iím used to ultra smooth. The alcohol content is slightly evident in the aftertaste, and definetly evident when you are almost done with the beer and you get up to grab some chips. This beer packs a punch. Fantastic overall.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2006 This is an outstanding IPA. Better than a lot IIPAís iíve had. Huge citrus, grapefruit aroma. Flavor is a lot like Goose Islan IPA. Well integrated malt profile, too. Maybe the best IPA Iíve ever had. (Rerate) What an amazingly solid beer. This is the ultimate session beer.

Clear orange body with medium offwhite, bubbly lacing head. Hoppy slight pine aroma with sweet notes. Bitter hoppy flavor with a side of light spice and some light fruits. Bitter hoppy finish.

Ungstrup (30386) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2005
[At Stockholm Beer Festival 2005] A hazy orange beer with an off-white lasting head. The aroma is rather hoppy, combined with notes of caramel - and I also pick up a slight coffee note. The flavor is sweet hoppy with powerful notes of caramel, and lesser notes of yeast. A good IPA.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2005
Tasted during trip to california. 65 cl Bottle. No yeast in bottom. Very pleasant fruit aroma. Golden too light amer colour with a lance head. Very extreme hoppy flavour but not so bitter than you may expected, but sill dry. A very tasteful IPA.

22 oz bomber. Pours a golden orange with a thin white head, and plenty of carbonated bubbles rising through the glass. Aroma is pleasant and very fruity. A very smooth citrus flavor with a great balance of hops. Unlike a lot of IPAs this one does not overpower with hops. Very drinkable.
