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.

circinus (235) - SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle 33 cl. Hazy orange with a white head. Hops, caramel, distinct strong bitterness, wormwood, citrus/lemon. Medium body, medium carbonation, strong bitter finish. Lacked hops aroma to balance the bitterness, but maybe it’s a bit old?

Rob_D_UK (1112) - Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Great hop aroma and nice appearance. A little sweetness and a mildly bitter finish that is the perfect balance.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Great color and aroma! Slightly floral, but with distinct citrus notes. Flavor is strong, but not overpowering. Left great lacing on the sides of the glass!

ordybill (329) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Poured from a Bomber into a Pint Glass. Aroma- A knockout of hops, floral essence, citrus and grass. Appearance- Poured a copper to amber color with a large white head. Taste- A fantastic flavor! Citrus and hops perfectly balanced. Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation, nice dry finish. Overall-A world class IPA. This is the gold standard for IPAs.

whoisghost (87) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 17, 2015
A beautiful light bronze/light gold colour with a creamy white head. Some nice grassy and pine heavy hop scents. I’m also getting hints of grapefruit. An incredibly smooth taste, the 6.9% is well hidden. The grass and the pine from the nose hold strong through to the taste, with the latter adding a lingering bitterness and slight punch to the brew. The mouthfeel is quite thick, with a nice velvety smoothness. Good levels of carbonation give a slight sense of dryness - this beer is uncomfortably sessionable.

It definitely had that nice subtle citrus taste and a nice bite. A great IPA.
