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.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2003 Bottled: Orange golden coloured. Has a medium lasting head. Aroma has notes of earth and flowers. Flvaour is hops, hops, hops, hops and ..... Boy oh boy. My palate was carpetbombed with hops. Quite pleasant, really, with this massive bitterness in the palate. If this is gonna be the standard of the 6 californian beers i've traded from herbjones, i'm gonna be a lucky man!
