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.

Andrus86 (187) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - MAY 21, 2015
TAP. pours a clear gold with minimal head, solid lacing. Toffee & malts on the nose, subtle hops. Sweet sticky toffee malts, to a warm boozy middle, finishing with a sticky slightly hoppy back end.. More malty then hoppy? Sourced Pourhouse Dunsborough

Gbgbrouge (339) - SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2015
Poured from bottle, pale amber with medium head. Aroma with an explosion of fruit and pine mixed up with some caramel and bread. Taste is bitter but really well balanced, backed up with a light body and a long bitter finish. Taste notes of peach, grape fruit, resin and some bread. Loved it!

Dr_Fellini (828) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a light amber orangish color with an off white head. Aroma is big citrusy hops, with a nice balanced malt backbone. Flavor is a bit more on the bitter end, but has a good fruity citrusy hop presence. A nice flagship IPA.

GreatDane1632 (1026) - Alabama, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Rated based on notes from 26 May 2012 -- This is a standby IPA. If a bar doesn’t have a good IPA, it should at least have this beer.

ALLOVATE (2621) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2015
Looks the picture of health. Radiant, orange amber with a messy inch of foam atop. Daubs a devilish lace in its wake. Bold, resinous and piney, whole cone nose brimmed by hints of bitter grapefruit, roasted peanut husks, doughy white bread and lemon peel. Noticeably dulled hop notes on the palate. Mild burnt rubber amongst some tree-sap, nettles and sharp, bitter herbs. Quite tight and on the leaner side as far as body with light carbonation. Lengthy bitter hop swallow with a light hint of honey and bready malts. Seems to lack some tropical fruit and esters to lift it. Quaffable but not a stand-out! (12fl.Oz, BB 22/05/15, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

MarcoDL (2892) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle at tasting. Golden pour, white head. Aroma of passion fruit and citrus. Taste has grapefruit, citrus, passion fruit and a little biscuity caramel. Very balanced and tasty.
