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.

Nice apricot flavor. Floral hop nose. Not your typical cascade dominated American IPA. Good stuff!

May be the most balanced ipa. Fruity, good after taste, not too strong or too long. Bold but not overpowering. ............... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I don’t need to tell you this is a good beer. Smell the hops, taste the hops, enjoy the hops.

Quite possibly the perfect beer! Citrusy crisp hops and nice malty undertones. I try to pick up a six pack weekly. Not widely available in Ny unfortunately.

Tap at Pivni York, aroma is certainly hoppy but a bit disappointed with taste. IMHO not nearly hoppy enough. Saying that would still have again.

Nice citrus and hop aroma, decent colour and head. The flavour is bitterness, bitterness and more bitterness pretty much obscuring everything else. A classic of the seemingly trendy idea that ramming a tonne of hops in a beer makes you a good brewer. It doesn’t and this is a poor beer, badly blended. The plethora of this type of beer is frankly getting really boring now.

One of the best IPA’s on the market. Medium bodied with a good balance of sweetness and hoppiness.

Nice super clear, amber, color with a healthy white head. Good aroma of pine, grass, slight orange, and mustiness. Nice hop bitterness but very well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good beer, but not as hoppy as I expected. However, very smooth with no aftertaste. Good enough to try once.
