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.

Aroma, pure hops. loving it! Bitter hop, alcohol, some fennel and slightly nutty in the aftertaste but fantastic warmth comes through at the end. Sticks on the palate for a great while afterward. Awesome beer.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2014 Grapefruit and resin in the aroma. The pine and resin come through in the taste, with the bitter grapefruit bringing up in the rear. The perfect amount of malt balance. Just a fantastic IPA.

mnovacanes (61) - Crestwood, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2009 Appearance: slight haze; good IPA color; huge fluffy off-white head that never goes away Aroma: Very nice but somewhat closed aroma--but its very nice! just the right amount of malt in the background Flavor: Very good flavor profile echoing the very nice nose; however, I might like some more intensity; seems a little restrained; that said, it is very well balanced Mouthfeel: Tremendous! One of the best parts to the beer; smooth, suave, well-balanced

I had to drop the overall rating from 19 to 18 cause I couldnít put this one over Dogfish Head; though this one is as close as they come. Great, smooth, hoppy beer, just not quite as complex as the previously mentioned.

Appealing amber color with a nice hoppy aroma. Nice and smooth going down. Great beer with after taste of hops around my mouth. I get a nice warm feeling as I finish this beer.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2007 Bottle. Typical IPA color with a nice, foamy head and good lacing. Very flowery aroma for an IPA. Flavor is fruity and bitter and perfectly balanced. This IPA is well deserving of itís lofty status. Maybe my favorite beer. Re-rate - This is my favorite beer on the face of this earth, so I have to give it a 5.
