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.

22 ounce bottle. Pours an orangeish gold with a decent head. Citrus and piney aroma. Flavor is not well-balanced though. All I taste is the hops, with a very bitter finish. This beer is very highly rated though, so I will have to give it another try.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2004 big on hops, somewhat cloudy but rich and full of rich malty flavors. could use a little more hops in the aftertaste area. Nice smooth finish, as it warms becomes somewhat rich and full body. Very good beer to have stocked in the box.

Pours hazy amber with tan head and trace lacing. Donít know what happened to the IBUs -- this beer is dominated by the hop aroma but I found the bitterness somewhat lacking. Citrus and pine flavors are dominant but the aftertaste reminded me of pickles (and yes, maybe a touch of strawberry). I found the beer to be quite overcarbonated which does it a disservice by bringing out some of the less pleasant aftertaste notes.
