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.

The aroma is exactly my idea of IPA. Some malts, hint of fruit and lovely hops. Could have more body, the hops overpower the malts, but more of both wouldn’t hurt. I’d call this a very nice session ale.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2012 actually, this is one of the better IPA´s I´ve tasted, but I´m not exactly a IPA man. Dark yellow amber colour, very hoppy citrus aroma, taste was VERY pleasantly hoppy, nice finish. NICE IPA! re-rate now a hop addict, world class

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2004
Golden w/ orange hue. Dense, fluffy white head. Crisp, fresh citrus aroma w/ an almost tropical fruit character. Sticky, resiny feel. Big, hoppy flavour w/ some nice biscuity malt & just a hint of mint. Long, extremely bitter finish.

BATLMULLET (127) - Highland, Indiana, USA - MAY 12, 2004
Bottle. Great pale orange color with a nice white head. Smooth mouthfeel, plenty of alcohol kick, and that floral aroma. From start to finish, outstanding.

zathrus13 (1763) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Great aroma, hops and grapefruit. Color is a nice gold. Taste is mostly the same as aroma, hops and grapefruit. Body medium to thin. Hops/bitterness is not overwhelming. The taste improves as it warms.

pineypower (3031) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - MAY 8, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2008 I always heard it was good, and boy did it smell good upon cracking it open. The amount and types of hops they use make a very nice bouquet of pine/citrus hop notes. Upon pouring it out it had a large foamy white head. It is a very smooth beer with a somewhat bitter after-taste, but not too bitter. A great very clean tasting beer, you can tell they do it right.

hopdog (11168) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Poured a deep amber/orange with a large frothy white head. Strong floral hoppy smell with hints of citris and malts. Smooth to drink. Bitterness after taste is almost done to perfection (not too much and not too less).
