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.

aplus01 (71) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Pours a crystal clear golden color with a moderate head. Aroma is floral and piney hop aroma with malt breadiness lurking in the background. Taste is big resiny hop flavor and bitterness. Malt flavor lends sweetness but still finishes dry. Still an excellent IPA. Highly recommended.

HopsandBolts (158) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2015
On tap at the Bier Markt Ottawa.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a trace of white head. Not a lot of lacing.

Aroma: Pine and more pine.

Flavours: Pine and some grapefruit.

Mouthfeel: Average viscosity and carbonation.

Overall: This is a decent but highly overrated IPA. Lots of the pine aroma and flavour but not much else. How this gets a 100/100 rating on ratebeer I’ll never know.

Setroc (12) - SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2015
Pours golden orange with a white head. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruit, floral notes. The flavour is dominated by pine with some sweet malts coming through before a long bitter aftertaste.

Shark_Pants (378) - AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2015
Attractive golden amber with a haziness about it. Fruity and juicy tropical fruit aroma - passionfruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, pine, honey, lightly toasted bread. Lots of pine and grassy hops in the taste, with grapefruit, honey and biscuit. A little metallic in the aftertaste. Light to medium bodied. Pretty solid IPA.

(Tap) Tropicla, citrus, grassy. Hops are too overpowering, and aftertaste is astringent. I don’t like it.

Kroney (191) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 20, 2015
Pours golden orange with a small but pillowy off-white head, leaving sporadic lacing. Aroma is citrus and stone fruit hop bitterness and malt sweetness. Flavor is consistent with the smell but in reverse - starts with good malt balancing but ends with a good hop bitterness that lingers until the next sip. A little sticky on the palate.

Lekkere IPA, maar de tweede was wat veel. Bitter en citrus. Weinig schuim. Verder niet zo veel te melden

It pours golden yellow, thin white head medium bubbles. The aroma is pine, grass, zest, don’t get much else. As expectee strong hops flavour, everlasting bitter finish. It’s one dimensional but nails it.

EatMore73 (22) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2015
Pours a clear amber with a small foamy white head. Awesome aroma of fresh floral hops. Delicious flavour of fresh citrus hops with enough malt to make the taste very well balanced.
