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.

VeinAle (134) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2015
This staple IPA hits the target with classic sweet aromas. Pouring a light amber with an oily head that glimmers and hangs to the glass when turned. Its mouth feel is smooth and astringent. The bittersweet is excellent. Good IPA

thickfreakness (132) - AUSTIN, Texas, USA - JUL 28, 2008
This is an extremely fresh bottle, only about two weeks old I believe. Pours a light clear orange that is quite vibrant with a little bit of white head that fades fast and leaves just a little bit of lacing. Smell is tons of citrus and pine hops with nice malt backbone that supports the hops quite nicely. Taste is just a pleasurable balance of the citrusy/piney hops with a caramel/biscuity malt support. Really smooth and easy to drink. An exceptional IPA.

shackinetics (132) - Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2009
Golden to light amber pour with more than a finger of a head. Decently hoppy aroma. Flavor of strong pine and grapefruit. Extremely smooth, but not quite the hop BITE Iím looking for. Nice alchohol content. Not sure why Iím not raving about this as much as others - guess Iíll have to try it again :)
