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.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear orange with gold tones and a short, 1/2" head. The head disapates quickly but leaves a tiny amount of lacing. The aroma is pure citrus, ruby red grapfruit with nuances of orange and lemon. The flavor is mostly citrus fruit, kind of bitter with a touch sweetness. The hops are definetly up front but there are hints of malt now and then, especially after it warms up a bit. Mouthfeel seems off to me, not very rich or full but pleasant. The finish is dry, very dry, with a strong grapfruit after taste. This is a well crafted beer but not one of my favorite styles.

Pours a great head with an explosion of hops. The only complaint is that sometimes it has a bit too much fruit. But that balanced with the high hop profile is the strong suit. This is my favorite IPA

Bottle. Wow, this is good. Hoptastic aroma. I want to bathe in this. Taste is amazing. Heavy hops, but not totally unbalanced. Very quenching. I could drink a few, and that’s what makes a great beer.

Great looking beer! Citrus, pine and honey malts. Low alcohol. Medium to high bitterness. Quite drinkable for the 7% abv. Would have like more citrus hopsand less bitterness but still a great brew.

Pours a murky amber with a cotton candy head. Sexy lacing. Heavy oaky nose, with notes of tarragon and corn. Minimal floral flavor, with overtones of orange and coffee. Dense, dense mouthfeel and bitter finish.

12 oz bottle poured into a standard pint glass. Pours a pale yellow, slightly cloudy but not much, with a tiny off white head. Good lacing. Smells of grapefruit, citrus, lemons and pine. Tastes of grapefruit, pine, and lemons. Not a lot of malt here. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with a drying finish. Good bitterness without being overpowering. Tastes like 2 row with "c" hops. Good beer but I would like more of malt background.

Excellent spicy aroma with slight citrus. Spicy hop flavor, medium, body with nice dry hop spice aftertaste. Gold standard for a good ipa.
