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.

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

Excellente IPA pour ceux qui aime le style très tranchant et belle amertume. Très bien équilibrée. Belle arôme. On sent plus que bien les 90 IBUs. J’ai adoré cette IPA, un classique.

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.

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.

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.

pours light yellow, fairly opaque with a small white head. smells of flowers, with a dry tang at the back. tastes slight wheat with classic ipa acid and bitter at the back. smooth mouth feel, slightly thin. overall a really solid ipa, very delicious :)
