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.

dagimp (766) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle at Bar Liberte in Philly. Drank from the bottle. Pungent, dank aroma. Lots of citrus rind. Mouthfeel is very carbonated and slightly sticky. Taste is grapefruit rind all the way. Very bitter. Nothing subtle about this. Hops are the only thing going on with this beer. No pretext of balance, but that’s OK sometimes. Pretty decent and I’d drink again. But I wouldn’t drink often.

Dimmig, gul-orange, vitt skum. Doft: Humle, bränt socker, kola, billig torkad papaya, jäst. Smak: Jäst, torkad mango, barr, humle, mandarin skal. Känns ej färsk, vilket är högst troligt.

tap @ Konttori
Orange clear beer with white dense head leaving lots of lacing. Aroma has sweet tropical ftuits, resin, grapefruit and caramelly sweetness. Flavor is very hoppy bitter, resinous and grapefruity. Palate is quite full and fluffy with feel of bitterness. Finish has very strong bitterness. Aftertaste is dry, grapefruity, piney and soapy. One of the strongest hop loads I’ve ever tasted, most DIPA’s get mellowed out by the thicker malt backbone. The bitterness is almost violently strong. There’s a bit of the annoying bitter caramelliness I dislike about American IPAs, which drops a few points. Still, a very enjoyable IPA.

Bork (367) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Heavy hop bitterness dominates from start to finish but manages to keep a perfect balance between pine and citrus. This one is to write home about.

slowrunner77 (6281) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 21, 2014
"as far as the regular (ie-not imperial) IPAs go, this is right up there as one of the best. Hoppier (slightly) than Marin’s, with a slightly thinner but slicker mouthfeel. Aroma is near perfect, and it’s cheaper than Marin, which only comes in 22’s."
