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.

ACHops (1329) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 3, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours cloudy golden orange with thin lacey head. Aroma is bright citrus and floral hops. Taste is sharp bitter piney hops initially, with the malts really taking a back seat. Clean, crisp flavor with the hop profile of a much bigger beer. Simple, outstanding IPA.

I need to admit that this is one of the best IPAs ever drunk. Perfect balance between citrus flavors and bitterness. Very drinkable and refreshing. Highly recommended

explosivedog (188) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 20, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2016 Taster at Erzbierschof (thanks to staff). Aroma is sweet and pine with a really dry almost dusty profile. Flavour is big hops, especially for a non imperial. There’s plenty of sweet resin and a nice bitter finish. Fairly standard for the style but really nice.

Fresh crowler only a few days old from the main brewery in San Diego. Many thanks to my good friend Paul. Overall a balanced and very very tasty. Aroma and taste not overhopped, but good balanced with malt and pine. Very refreshing. A classic!

anstei (1068) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - AUG 18, 2016
Tap at Erzbierschof. This beer is bitter but not much more. There is some forest aroma hops in the nose, but really not much else. Carbonation works, the bitter aftertaste is really striking. Not sure what I should think of this.
