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.

Pours a cloudy golden-amber, almost similar to a wheat beer, with a nice 1/2’’ head. Hops are readily present in the aroma, along with slight hints of fruit. The hoppy flavor may appear overwhelming at first, but is nicely balance out with malt for a smooth, crisp finish. Full boddied, crisp, tasty, and well worth a try.

Poured golden with a white head. The aroma is sweet and hoppy. Taste is crisp and bitter with a hoppy flavor.

Balanced, not overly complex and a wonderful drink. Lots of citrus and pine in the nose. Mildly bitter finish. One of my fave IPAs.

A nice clear gold color. Strong bitter aroma of hops and a little citrus. Flavor is robust with piney hops that ride all way through the finish. Great beer

From a bottle... Aroma is consumed by hops; taste is the same, albeit with a sticky taste that lingers. I wasn’t around when the Brits were invading India but I suspect this beer is what they had in mind...

This was an OK ipa definitely did not live up to the hype. I wish people would stop listening to everyone else. And make an opinion of their own. This supposed to be the ipa that all other ipa are judged by. I however, don’t see it that way, too much piney and bitter flavor. This is not an accurate ipa for tue new westcoast style.

Medium color, nice white head. Tastes of floral and citrus. Overall a great taste and would make a great air freshner smell!

Hopheads would love this beer. It has a pure a hop flavor as anything that I’ve had before. Personally, I prefer a more balanced beer, so this was a little too bitter for my tastes. But by definition, this is probably the perfect IPA for those who love hops to dominate.
