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.

GEOBRAU (188) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 15, 2003
Bottle: nice aroma (Cascade probobly) head true to style. Strong hop bitterness with malty backbone followed by crisp dry hoppy finish. No holes in this beer. excellent lacing. A bit more straw colored than the regular pale ale but no less malty. The only better IPA I've had is my own.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 8, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2008 Bottle pours a hazy orange amber color with a nice rocky head and good lace. The aroma is citrus and pine. The flavor has a good floral hop show of grapefruit and pine. The palate is average with some decent cleansing bubbles. Overall, this is a good IPA.

Hoppy brew for hopheads, I liked it but I could not drink a lot of it, too hoppy for my tastes.

chronictonic (473) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2003
Crisp, golden color with a cohesive white head. Aroma is fruity and hoppy. Flavor is thick, resiny and chewey with hops. Not overly bitter but chock full of that good hop flavor. Very above average.

bsour (78) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 5, 2003
Golden orange with a slight haze. Large, thick head that dissipated over time. Lacing all the way down the glass. Aromas of fresh hops and ripe citrus. It has a nice bite from hops but not over-powering. A citrus flavor coats the mouth and has a pleasant after-taste. Wonderful IPA.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - OCT 31, 2003
Very nice crystal clear orange color with a big frothy off-white head that leaves creates nice glass lacing. Super citrus, grapefruit aroma some sweet malt also. Flavor is grapefruit and sweetness. Bitterness really kicks in towards the end. Yum this stuff is good. Body is medium and not overly dry but still very crisp. Some stickiness is noticeable on the teeth. Overall an excellent IPA, one to which others should be compared.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - OCT 30, 2003
Pours a juicy orange color with a nice off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is very citrus with some floral notes as well. Mainly grapefruit smells in this beer. At first this beer is surprisingly sweet but ends with a huge hop bitterness. Body is medium with a rather dry finish. Very good IPA.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2003 Killer IPA, big-time grapefruit smell, see-through copper. Sweet and fruity with brutal hops.
