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.

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.

dagimp (767) - 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.

Privatimporterad flaska genom Great Brands. Strĺlande vacker i sin tungt dimmiga bärnsten, ingen jästfällning här inte. Lite klent skum kanske, men va fan gör det? Mäktig humledoft av kĺda men mycket citrusfrukt framförallt. Är dock lite besviken pĺ smaken, fin sötma av grape och mango, beskan välbalanserad men den känns tunn! Här hade de kunnat fläska pĺ lite mer. Överlag en jättefin IPA dock. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BadAprilia1000 (312) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Pours a hazy orange yellow color with a great lively white head. Aroma is pretty strong, hop, grapefruit, sweet orange, tang, slight bread, lemon zest, a very sweet floral, pine resin. Taste is awesome, notes of sweet oranges, grapefruit, lemons, resin, pine, and a very strong malty backbone to carry the bitter. Overall a fantastic IPA, great yet still sessionable. Texture is perfectly smooth, full bodied, all around awesome.

ineedbeer (968) - Oakland, California, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Poured from a 12 oz bottle with a Best By date of 11/20/2014. Aroma is rather hop forward with quite a bit of pine resin and grapefruit. A bit of wood and hop resins. Some light cracker and bread notes. Hints of stone and tropical fruit esters. Pours a slightly hazy, golden orange with a small, moderately thick, white head with average retention as it recedes to the edges. Moderate lacing and medium length legs. Flavor has a light sweetness with a bit of bread and cracker notes. A moderately strong bitterness with a hint of alcohol in the finish. Moderately strong grapefruit hop notes with hints of orange and other citrus. Medium light pine resin and a hint of wood. Some faint stone fruit notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty nice IPA, but nothing special either. Some nice hop character, but it lacks the super fruitiness of the newer hop varietals.

adster (475) - HUNGARY - SEP 27, 2014
Átlátszó színe aszúhoz hasonlatos, habja hüvelykujjnyi vastag, krémes. Fenséges aromái kecsesen szállingóznak a levegőben, művész hajlammal rendelkezőknek egy napra elég is lenne ennyi. Fenyőfa kiválasztása előtti hangulatok jönnek, a prímet nyilvánvalóan a "tűlevelű komló" illata viszi. Az olyan jelzőket, mint a kifinomult, elegáns és megnyerő, természetes és harmonikus lelkiismeret furdalás nélkül pufogtathatjuk, azonban talán egyik sem jellemzi hűen az egyszerűségben rejlő tökéletességét. Frissítő kortyai kellően teltek, a bizsergető szénsavasság remekül élénkíti meg a jól érezhetően gabonás testet. Ezzel párhuzamosan természetesen érkezik a komló gyantás karcossága, a homogén keserűség másodperceken belül szinte vághatóvá válik. Nagyszerű IPA-alapvetés, semmi cifrázás, mérnökien precíz munka.

Just Bad. The worst after taste of any IPA, it made me gag. Disgusting. Poured 4 bottles down the drain and hoped it would ruin the houses plumbing system.
