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.

I'm not a fan of hops, but certainly not a fan of this beer --I will say the alchy is up there! ;)

Bottled and draft. A very light amber. Bitter beer with a slight floral arrangement. #2 IPA in my book - right behind Two Hearted.

From a pint glass - a nice golden yellow color with a fairly thin white head. Hops and citrus with some pine in the aroma. A medium-to-full body gives way to a balance of bitter/sweet, A nice crisp finish. This is a very solid IPA, but you probably won’t still be thinking about it the next day.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2015 On tap poured in dry, room temp glass. The color is a copper that looks great as the carbonation climbs the glass to a nice foamy, white head. Great lacing all the way down to the last sip. Flavor is citrus with a little spice that balances well against the bitterness. Hoppy aroma from the moment it hit the table. Very fragrant. Scents pine wood as well as the citrus. Easy flow, thin consistency that doesn’t linger in the mouth which makes each sip taste fresh. This is my go-to ipa bottle drinker that’s even better on tap, like most brews. Middle of the road abv makes this a great sixpack to keep in the fridge at all times or a great weekend night drinker. Highly recommend.

big aroma, not sure it’s pleasant. lighter color than many IPAs, dark yellow. lingering hop flavor is a plus. I can’t identify the hop flavor, not fruity, not spicey, not overly earthy. hops might be a little piney to earthy, but not with a bad aftertaste. malt is hard to identify, but it doesn’t take over the beer.

What’s to say - plenty have reviewed it - I prefer it to Ruination, which was my favourite. A great IPA!

My favourite IPA. very bitter, and long finish. Imagine you just open a fresh Cascade Hope pocket and you smell it . This is exactelly the feeling I had when I smell that beer for the first time.

Ez volt a legzsírabb sör, amit valaha ittam. Jó nem vagyok még túl öreg, jön még a folytatás. Nagyon frissítő, igazi sörkülönlegesség, színe, mint a sárkány aranya és enyhén citrusos mellékíze jól oltja a szomjat. The BEST!
