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.

Poured amber with a slight haze. Small white head with lots of lacing. Huge hop aroma and flavor. A highly sessionable IPA. One of the west coast greats. REPRESENT!

22oz bottle. golden orange with a decent cream head that dissipates leaving traces on the glass. Aroma is very hoppy with a hint of wood. Taste is full of hops with a grapefruit bitterness. Finishes dry with no excessively bitte aftertaste, just a hint of that grapefruit..

Mild aroma compared to most ipas. Flavor is nothing to write home about. Hazy brown orange hue. Its an IPA and that’s about it.

12oz bottles. Pours a slight cloudy yellow colour. A nice hop punch to it, quite tasty and smooth. Doesn’t live up to the hype though. Have had better IPAs, but its still damn good.

My favorite regular ipa to date. Lovely floral hop aroma that hints at things to come. Scrumptious fresh hop flavor with enough malt to give balance and body. Medium finish that holds you over just long enough until the next sip. You can’t go wrong with this classic. Try it!

Beautiful appearance. Clear and golden with a distinct hop aroma. The taste is a good mix of sweet malt and bitter hop. The hop aftertaste doesn’t attack the throat and is certainly not overpowering.

kxkeller (32) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2005
Clear, dark golden color with off-white head. Really nice hop aroma, sweet, piny with prune notes. The taste if full of piny and perfumy hops. Good bitternes, balanced by a decent sweetness and fullness from the malts. A dry, hop aftertaste, but not overpowering.
