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.

phikus (96) - syracuse, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2015 The floral citrus bouquet in the aroma of this beer is laced with a touch of honey maltiness then the flavor takes over with pine and mango hoppiness balancing a biscuit maltiness. Well balanced finish.

neongolden (680) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2014
(On tap at Akkurat, Oct 14 2014) Pours a hazy orange-gold with a big frothy white head and lace. Aroma is really quite dank, with lots of citrus rind, a bit of tropical fruit, resin, bready malts and light sweetness, but really all about the hop cocktail. On the palate, more grapefruit and orange zest, orange flesh, green dank hops, a little pine and floral character. Some nice moderately sweet malt in the middle does just enough to hold all those hops. Light early and more citrus pith with supporting pine in the dry, astringent, bitter finish. Medium but very chewy body, light to moderate carb. All about the hops for sure, but it’s not at all unbalanced and is extremely quenching. Perhaps my ultimate preference runs to more tropical fruit but this is a top notch IPA.

12oz brown bottle. Gold pour, thick and creamy white foam, great lacing. Nose has pine, grapefruit, orange. Light biscuit malt, grapefruit and piney hops. Lingering hoppiness and aftertaste of grapefruit orange and pine. Very drinkable, simple but pleasing.

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.

"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."
