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.

argo0 (12277) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 10, 2002
Orange beer, nice head. Floral & citrus aroma slams you big time. The cascade hops rock this beer, with initial sweetness giving way to big bold bitterness all the way down. Good stuff, not for the faint of heart.

Bottle. [thank you, after4ever]
Hazy darkish golden with a staying, frothy, off-white head. Good lacing. Nice hoppy aroma. There is pine, grapefruit, caramel, malts, grass. Great frothy mouthfeel, wonderful dryness, medium to high carbonation. Elegant hoppy flavour. There is a great deal of pine, sweet maltiness behind it. Some grapefruit and grassy notes. Long, lingering, dry, ashy, hoppy aftertaste.

imdownthepub (11464) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2009
Cask conditioned at The White Horse, Parsons Green, London. Hazed gold with white head. Quite a fruity beer with good hop character, the best beer in this Festival for me, a little flat but still very drinkable. Lemony citrus body, quite powerful and drying. A pretty decent beer.

Ratman197 (11352) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 3, 2005
Bottle poured a clear golden yellow with a white head leaving behind brussels lace. Aromas of carmel, bread and a bit of citrus. Good crisp mouthfeel. Flavors of carmel and mildly bitter citrus. Not the best IPA Ive had, but better than their Ruination.

Lubiere (11225) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2003

In outh, a good biscuitty malt with very resinous pungent hops, mentol, coniferous, quite nice and challenging. 8-3-8-4-15

bierkoning (11206) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2008
Bottle from Lithy, thanks! Orange blonde color. Malty perfumed grapefruit aroma with pineapple. Sweet but oily hopbitter, perfumed flavor. Mint, grapefruit and pineapple. The perfume spoils the fun a bit, this would have been a great beer otherwise.
