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.

(Oregon Craft Brewfest at The Oregon Garden) Very floral, hoppy aroma. Quite strong, will curl your toenails. Mild hoppiness compared to what I was expecting after the aroma and drinking. Still very hoppy, donít get me wrong though. Quite tasty fro a IPA. Good Job.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 Lovely fine cream head, well-sized. Iffy clear yellow colour(I much prefer darks), fine sweet pine smell, emphatically not Mr Clean! Delicate yet strong-minded flavours of pine and florals. Fabulous.

Very floral, hoppy aroma. Quite strong, Iím in for it now. Surprisingly mild hoppiness compared to what I was expecting after the aroma and drinking Ruination. Still very hoppy, donít get me wrong though. Quite delicious for what Iím guessing is one of their flagship beers.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2011 A great IPA. Excellent balance between hop flavor and just a touch of malts. Would buy any day of the week.

A west coast treat for this craft beer deprived Florida boy. Gorgeous pour revealing a slightly hazy bright orange-gold hue under a thick, tight white head. Aroma of freshly squeezed grapefruit and orange juice into one glass, backed by a faint nose of lemon, pine needles and caramel malt. Palate shows a fine and mild spritzy carbonation with a medium body which was perfect for the style. No mistaking the big hop additions in the flavors; lots of citrus and pine in tune with the delicious aromas. A touch of sweetness from the caramel malts are noted mid-palate, but the finish is a crisp and bitter hop contribution; nice and long. These guys are good!

Outstanding. I bought this case after people kept talking about it at work, and even though Iíve had one bottle before, I donít remember it being this good. Superbly clear, hops on the nose from a mile away. Light/medium body with a caramel/floral palate. A perfect spring/summer offering to take in after mowing the lawn. This case will not last long and it wonít be the last one I buy.

Just imagine biting into a giant bitter grapefruit... add some water to make it smooth.. and then some alcohol. Thats how it kinda taste like lol... itís really good, but the bitter taste it has reminds me of grapefruits. It has a really stront taste that has presence. The first sip just make my intire mouth tingle in excitement. The store i went to had this marked as írate beers top 99í which i thought was real cool. Everyone needs to try thing one.

Poured from a 12oz bottle deep yellow with an off-white head. Aroma was all floral and citrus hops. The flavor on this one was an excellent grapefruit flavor with a very light touch of malt. This was a very smooth drink.
