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.

Great daily go to ipa, easy drinking with great taste. Definitely only drink fresh. A classic. Hops are citrus, floral, and earthy. Nice bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lasancan (21) - SPAIN - JAN 16, 2016
Pale golden, crystal clear, low pillowy head. Aroma grapefruit, lemon zest and light herbal notes. Palate watery, carbonation medium. Taste tropical fruit, green apples, grapes. Balanced bitter finish. No long lasting or characteristic bitterness. Balanced. Pretty mild, pretty decent. Like 5 am, aroma is richer than taste.

Bottle split with friends, thanks Lukas! Copper pour with a frothy head. Notes of heavy oily resin, some caramel, pine and stone fruits. A bit tired...

QcBeer (85) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2016
Couleur Doré et clair. Arome de banane, poire, et ananas. L’amertume du houblon en bouche et coriace, mais tendre à la fois. Ensemble fruité, dont on ressent les agrumes, le pin et les épices. la finale sèche ressort une bonne amertume. Awesome IPA

Vestergaard (1400) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2016
Bottle thanks to LukasMH. Pours a clear orange with a creamy, small, white head. Aroma is super grassy, lots of malts, caramel malts, earthy hops, spice, lots of citrus peel. Taste is sweet and malty up front, spicy and then lots of grassy, bitter hops. Average high carbonation and an oily body.

Serapac (305) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 2, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2016 Bottle. Deep amber, small off-white head. Aroma hops, wild cherries, pineapple. Taste first a bitter attack, turning into a mellow sweet mango. Finish again very bitter, nearly quinine-like. An excellent IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good and basic ipa, not the best but one of my personal top 5 ipas. Hoppy, citrusy and flavours of grapes.

Amazing aroma, beautiful golden color. Very fruity and hopy. They bitterness stay in the back of the mouth. It refresh the mouth and fulfills you with the hopy bitterness!
