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.

After many years of searching I have found the perfect IPA. Hoppy, Dry, Powerful but really easy to drink. Outstanding with Italian food. Great with everything else, even Ice cream. It is really easy to consume more than is safe.

First IPA. Pours into a light amber. Foamy head that is gone after a few sips. Nice bitter hoppy flavor. Very nice. Not a mouth feel I like... but it is ok. All in all... a good beer.

12 oz bottle. Excellent amber color. Floral and hoppy aroma. I found the floral overtones a bit too overwhelming. Not my favorite IPA, but still a darn good beer.

A great beer I picked up in a mix-and-match pack. I am usually rather fond of IPA’s.

Great west coast style ipa. Looks great in a glass with lots of lacing. Big hoppy aroma with a medium mouthfeel. Hops, hops, and more hops up front with a little malty bread finish, but maybe not enough to balance it out a bit. What it does, it does as good as any big american style hoppy ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lasancan (21) - SPAIN - JAN 16, 2016
Pale golden, crystal clear, low pillowy head. Aroma grapefruit, lemon zest and light herbal notes. Palate watery, carbonation medium. Taste tropical fruit, green apples, grapes. Balanced bitter finish. No long lasting or characteristic bitterness. Balanced. Pretty mild, pretty decent. Like 5 am, aroma is richer than taste.

Pours a light amber with nice head and constant bubbles though the end. Very nice hops aroma. Tingles the tip of your tongue at first, then comes a wonderful blast of hops all over and, finally finishes with bitter on the back sides. Being a prodominant fan of Weissebier I was very impressed with this beer. It has renewed my opinion of IPA.
