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: MAY 5, 2008 A damn good IPA, my favorite up to this point. Very hoppy yet not too overbearing bitterness. When i think west coast IPA, this is ideal.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2004 big on hops, somewhat cloudy but rich and full of rich malty flavors. could use a little more hops in the aftertaste area. Nice smooth finish, as it warms becomes somewhat rich and full body. Very good beer to have stocked in the box.

Poured a slightly hazy golden/copper color, moderate head. Big hop aroma, a little citrusy, some underlying malt. Flavor is big on hops but has enough buttery malt to back it up. Lingering bitter finish. Smooth round body. A damn fine IPA.

Clear dark golden color with big off-white head. Ummmm, lots of Northwest hops in the aroma, and some malt. Bitter at first, in the middle, and the end, with lingering hop aftertaste. There is malt to back it up though. A very good Amercan-style IPA.

This IPA was explosive in my mouth. I could tell if I was coming or going. I enjoyed every second. Normally the alcohol would be too high, but it seemed to hold well with the dry hopped demon.

Translucent amber, fairly small head. Cascade hop aroma is quite strong. Grapefruity. Super-hoppy, crisp. Malty adds the perfect balance. An awesome IPA.

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 10, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2004 Bright orange color with a foamy white head that leaves pretty, sticky lacing down the glass. Big hop aromas and full malt flavors to balance it. Rather robust. Finishes clean with a bit of hops hanging on. Huge without being over the top. This is one of those beers that I forget about. It's so good, but I seem to pass on it for other IPA's often only to wish I had selected this one. The fact that it's so readily available here in Ohio has me taking it for granted. For shame!

Immediately reminded me of Bridgeports' IPA, which is very good. Since I had that beer a long time ago, I can't tell which is better, but this is also a very good beer. Aroma is great, of fruits. Cloudy orange with a nice sized head. Very smooth drinking despite having a strong hops character. Very solid overall.

invalid (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2004 Overall nice malt flavor, but the hops almost came off as "burnt". I'm not sure how that's possible. Weird. The fact that I saw my first girlfight in a nice bar while sipping this has to count for something lol

Aroma: scents of hops, malts, and tropical fruits. also, slight metallic scents.
Appearance: golden yellow colour. small, white head.
Flavor: sweet, malty, hoppy flavors. fills the nose and clears the sinuses.
Palate: hops that momentarily scrape the skin off the back of the tongue--other than that, remarkably smooth. slight fruity, earthy aftertaste.
Overall: not a bad IPA.
