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.

Very nice golden tan pour, with a nice white, quickly fading head. Aroma is of citrus, lemon and grapefruit. Some pine as well. Tast was mor citrus, and pine then anything. Just a small touch of malt maybe? A little to bitter and spicey bitterness for me. Wnjoyable but not one I will really seek out again.

Pours a clear orange with no head. Very hoppy, somewhat malty. Aroma is flowery and cirtusy. Bitter finish. Very drinkable although a little too watery.

Bottle. I think I can say sex in a bottle. Pours a nice light orange color with an inch of white head. Nose is of hops. Taste is very bitter but drinkable. Not too much of anything. An amazing IPA.

piscator34 (2312) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 5, 2006
Light orange in colour with medium carbonation. Strong aromatic notes of orange, grapefruit, and tangerine, mix with a bit of pine and some light caramel. There’s a definitely a green hop flavor that mixes well with the slightly bready malts. Solid bitterness, but the overall impression of the mouthfeel is rather soft and balanced. For all of their chest thumping and posturing about over the top hops, this is a VERY well balanced IPA.

zsb19 (168) - Cincinnati, Kentucky, USA - MAY 4, 2006
Bottle - Pale yellow with medium foamy white head. Aroma is very hoppy with hints of citrus. Medium palate with a good bit of carbonation. Taste is extremely hoppy with nice grapefruit bitterness on the follow-through and a good crisp biting finish. This is an excellent IPA. The gargoyle most definitely does his job!!

Bartzilla (616) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 3, 2006
This is my go-to beer. So damn good. Not much more I can really add that hasn’t been addressed here already. I buy a lot of this beer in bottles, in bombers, in pints and in pitchers. In fact, I wish I had one right now. It doesn’t matter when you read this, I guarantee you that I wish I had one right now.

isamublue (21) - Huntington Beach, California, USA - MAY 2, 2006
12 oz bottle. Excellent amber color. Floral and hoppy aroma. I found the floral overtones a bit too overwhelming. Not my favorite IPA, but still a darn good beer.
