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.

GTCruiser01 (105) - California, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Light amber with a big white head that fades to a light cover. Nice lacing. Aroma is pine and grapefruit, with some malt underneath. The flavor is good on the citrus and pine with a nice caramel malt backbone. Good balance and very easy drinking.

Lore (1892) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 17, 2016
opalescent golden colour medium sized creamy off-white head; aroma of (tropical) fruity, citrusy, floral, biscuity and resiny notes; bittersweet resiny taste with the same notes as the aroma and some overripe fruitiness; starts with sweetness which is followed by intensive and long lasting bitterness; a masterpiece!

kapusil (1021) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 17, 2016
0.355l bottle. Hazy dark golden body, white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, peach and citruses. Taste of caramel, reisins, hop resins, roasted malts, citruses and pine. Very smooth and nice.

Cristobal37 (625) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 16, 2016
Bottle Thanks Lorebacsi!! Surprisingly sweet malty aroma. Nice bitterness under the malts and the finish is where it’s at. Even dry bitterness with a quality finish. Tasted different from the tap but it’s still good.

AdolfoCC (79) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - APR 9, 2016
APARIENCIA: de color dorado con destellos naranjas, se observa cristalina y moderada actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma blanca, de burbuja compacta y buena retención. AROMA: de inicio el lúpulo con notas cítricas y algo herbales, notas de pino y resinosas sin embargo no son tan intensas. SABOR: amargor intenso de entrada seguido de notas herbales de entrada, notas de pino, mucho dankness, atrás de eso muy discretas notas cítricas. Al retrogusto, buena permanencia de ese amargor intenso, que queda pegado al paladar. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo ligero, se siente oleoso, carbonatación media. RESUMEN: una excelente cerveza, muy apegada al estilo que representa.

thirstyrabbit (1657) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 8, 2016
Tap, TCBW ’16. Bright orange body, tall head. Aroma has fresh American hops and caramelly malt. Some floral elements too. Taste has lots of hops and sweet citric fruits. Feels like a pretty standard IPA.

Emek (228) - Wroc³aw, POLAND - APR 5, 2016
Tap (BGM4). Mocna, intensywna IPA. Może klasyczna, a może trochę za "toporna", brakuje trochę finezji, ale to ciągle bardzo dobre piwo.

emusche (144) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 2, 2016
Pours hazy yellow-orange with a sticky head. Aromas of candy, grapefruit, pine, deep dank earthiness. Taste is bitter pine, loads of resin, oily mouthfeel, nice citrus to cut it. Coulda sworn it was brewed with Columbus hops, but I guess it must be the Centennial/Chinook combo. It tastes to me much more like an APA than an IPA. Very good.

klaing (223) - Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2016
Slightly cloudy orange gold with moderate and persistent head. Malts sweet with tropical fruit edge soon overwhelmed by piny persistent hops. Not a subtle IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
