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.

Pyobon (1083) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2015
(On Tap) Clear golden amber with large dense white head. Beautiful aroma - stone fruit, oranges, hint of pine. Medium body with excellent mouth filling soft carbonation. Taste starts with tangy fruit over light biscuit malt. Fruit has orange and stone fruit notes. A nice bitterness appears in the mid palate and then builds for a great bitter finish. An excellent beer.

Pours a hazy amber from a bottle. I guess this is a classic West coast IPA. Itís okay, citrus and pine aromas, same flavor, less sweetness than you get from most IPAs nowadays, actually quite dry. Bitterness lasts long after you swallow. Meh.

Vestlake (210) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 21, 2015
I thought this was an okay IPA. The aroma has a little pine in it, but the taste is mostly bitter hops. There are lots of IPAís I enjoy more.

SinH4 (923) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 20, 2015
Tap at the lab gastropub. Hazy orange color with white head. Huge piney, resinous grapefruit marmalade aroma. Taste is bitter, good residual sweetness, nice body, bitter caramel. A great classic IPA!

McWorta (922) - LUXEMBOURG - JUN 14, 2015
Clear deep golden colour with a lasting fine poruing white head offering excellent lacings. Aromas of dank grass, green leaves, barnyard, spruce/pine and herbal hop resin with grapefruit and light citrus influences arise on the nose. Softly carbonated with a light slick texture and a medium body, this IPA offers a crisp malt center building up hop bitterness which lasts well on the palate without being abrasive. The finish is long and bone dry. Good stuff!

Soft carbonation. Beautiful flavour, strong grapefruit notes without the overpowering citrus. Well balanced hops. Bitter finish.

This brew is strong yet refreshing, crisp and hoppy. The hops triggered a response from my parietal glands. As my salivary glands started to spam, my ears and sinuses reacted in kind. This brew is phenomenal. It is not for those that proclaim patronage to the non-bitter beer institute. As the good book says, donít cast pearls before swine. This beer is for the conesuer, for one who appreciates perfection. California ales are definitely leading the way for these hop righteous brews. Stone and a few others are defining the new era in IPA brewskies!
