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.

Beautiful clear orange witha thick white foamy head. Hoppy, fruity (almost like pineapples) nose. Medium bodied, malty witha nice hop flavor and bitterness. Very good.

Pours a light amber, a tinge hazy, thick foamy head, great retention, great lace. Nose is hops and citrus. Taste slapped my tongue with hops and citrus, extremely balanced, finishes a tad dry and deliciously bitter. Long lasting hop taste in my mouth after sipping. A benchmark in IPA’s, always good, refreshing.

Bottled. Simply fantastic. Pours a nice amber with little head. Smell of hops and malt. The taste is exceptional, the perfect mix of hops and a note of caramel. Finishes superbly with no excessively bite. Would definitely buy again.

The perfect American IPA. Beats one of my favorites, too-- draught Harpoon IPA (which is near and dear to my heart, being from Boston). Body is just right-- not too light, but heavy enough to carry the malt and hops. Color is probably a little too light for an IPA, but that’s a minor complaint. Bitterness cleanses the palate without being overwhelming. Outstanding brew. Highly recommended. I would love to try this on tap some day.

Dat lacing. Pours a hazy straw color with a nice white head. Brilliant lacing n the glass. I love it. Fruity estery aroma along the same lines as Ruination. Taste is mostly hops - resin is strong and pine is in there. Mild citrus flavor peaks through as it warms up, but not enough. Good beer, but doesn’t feel very balanced. I prefer a little more malt character in an IPA. I think this beer’s big brother Ruination hits the nail on the head in terms of balance.

Very solid, very hoppy IPA. Pours a translucent amber. Smells of citrus. The hops lean more towards grapefruit than pine, although pine is there too. Orange rind-like finish.

WildTurkey (49) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Dark honey color. Not too much head but there was some lacing. Some piney, and floral hops in the nose. Tastes have some tart citrus and piney flavor. Also some sweet bready malt. Light to medium body and fairly dry. Nice IPA.
