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.

UjoKlobasa (516) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 8, 2016
Berlin can. Golden color with a tin of amber, clear liquid, white head. Smell of vegetable. Aroma of lager, earth, zest. Harsh bitter. Long bitter finish. Alcohol is hidden. Nice touch of the beer history, but today’s brews are somewhere else. Still great though.

Rask0lnikov (607) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 7, 2016
On tap at Pudel. Golden yellow colour. Medium white head. Lots of tropical fruits, juiciness in the aroma. Delicous, refreshing smell in my nose. Lots of fruits at first. Juicy, hoppy in the middle. Citrussy, slightly salty, juicy finish. Citrusses in the aftertaste. Nicely balanced, very drinkable IPA.

MelvinKalksma (788) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2016

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, tropical fruit, pine, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Clear/hazy golden/amber beer with a slight/medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, tropical fruit and pine; ends slightly bitter and slightly/medium dry with hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The appearance is way too clear for my liking however. A great and refreshing IPA.

Fantastic beer. Fresh aroma of hops, sweet grapefruit, citrus, light touch of caramel in the background. Taste is super smooth, fresh and hoppy.. Bitterness could be higher. World class IPA

Gurthnar (4777) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 6, 2016
Tap at Craft Bier Fest Wien. High bitterness, well attenuated, easy drinking. Slightly lacking in intensity though. Citrusy resiny hops is present, but leaves you longing for more.

ciocanelu (1053) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUL 5, 2016
Berlin version from a can. Clear, golden color with white head. Aroma has grassy and dank hops and citrus fruits. Taste follows with the same hoppy notes but the malts seem a bit off, somehow too grainy for an IPA. Finish is quite bitter with intense grapefruit flavor. Medium to light body with medium carbonation. It has some really nice hoppy notes but there’s something wrong with the malt backbone. 8/3/7/3/15 - 3.6/5. Escondido version from a bottle. Clear, golden color with white head. Not as aromatic as the Berlin version. More generic, floral hops. Taste is also somehow more bland. There is a generic bitterness with some earthy hops but not really fruity or floral. Medium to light body with medium carbonation. This one is quite boring, I am disappointed. 6/3/7/3/13 - 3.2/5. Average for both versions: 3.4/5.

datrael (159) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 5, 2016
Aromat średnio intensywny, głównie żywica, nieco tropików i cytrusów, ale ogólnie nie powala. W wyglądzie stosunkowo klarowne, wysycone, z konkretną i zdobiącą szkło białą pianą. W smaku żywica i cytrusy, głównie grejpfrut, w posmaku pojawia się jeszcze ziołowość, goryczka grejpfrutowa średnia ku wysokiej. Pijalne, ciałko dość solidne. Bardzo solidna, wytrawna ipa, która nie powali ale jednak sprawi dużo przyjemności, bardzo wciągająca.

Pours golden color, clear, with foamy, stable white head. Aroma: rich hop aroma, which takes on pine, citruses...flavor is similar, with intense hop flavors, supported and very well balanced with malt flavors, which takes on bread, toffee.. Finish is bitter dry and lingers long in aftertaste. Body is medium, texture soft, carbonation is medium.
