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.

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.

Pour clear gold with white head. Aroma has lots of floral and citrus hops as well as some rich malt to balance things out - very hearty. Mouthfeel is rich and smooth with a medium / full body. There is light carbonation, but that works well for this brew. Taste is very hoppy - on the floral side. There are also rich malt that balance things out nicely. Fantastic lacing the whole way down. One of the thickest, most full bodied IPAs Iíve had. Finish has the floral hops from the taste, but a bit of pine shows up. While it is a hoppy bitter finish there is still a rich malt presence that stays the whole way through. This is a fantastic beer worth seeking out.

Beer good! As with most American IPA it comes off green to me. The style was made strong and over hopped to withstand a long voyage ...I believe all IPA should be cellared for atleast six weeks, I just canít seem to keep a bottle in my house for more than 6 hours

19apr06 one bottle for $3. Great taste. Great aroma. I like the bottle too, so great marketing. Grassy and alcohol. Just wish I could get six packs without paying so much for it. Of course, sometimes when you wanna drink good beer, youíre gonna pay up for it. oh well.

Bottle. Thereís just somethink about an IPA after mowing the lawn.
Doesnít pour nearly as dark as I would have thought or expected, rather itís a cloudy yellow ... almost hefe like. Doesnít detract from the experience, however. Very fine IPA. Very fine. Very grassy and piney in the nose with a small malt background. Very hoppy, but it doesnít smell like a salad, itís more subtle than that. Very dry and bitter in the mouth, but an underlying caramel sweetness balances the whole thing off. Very dry and bitter finish. Excellent IPA.

Hazy orange color - medium head. Aroma is citrusy with a hint of flowers and grassy hops. Flavor is rich and complex - notes of lemons, citrus, light malts and other hops. Finish is very clean and soothing. Very very nice IPA.

tcruicks (282) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - APR 15, 2006
Looks yellow-orange without a lot of carbonation and a big white head. Very strong hoppy aroma with some sugary sweetness, floral scents and citrus to it- smells great overall! Flavour is simple, refreshing- super hoppy, very little malt, bitter.
