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.

seth_lfod (325) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Enjoy by date January 2013 poured into pint glass at burger bar in Las Vegas. Pours a clear honey like color. Scent is pine and citrus. Taste follows. Nice and crisp with a bitter finish. Could easily follow this up with a couple more. Solid IPA.

Andrus86 (142) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - MAY 21, 2015
TAP. pours a clear gold with minimal head, solid lacing. Toffee & malts on the nose, subtle hops. Sweet sticky toffee malts, to a warm boozy middle, finishing with a sticky slightly hoppy back end.. More malty then hoppy? Sourced Pourhouse Dunsborough

Gbgbrouge (315) - SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2015
Poured from bottle, pale amber with medium head. Aroma with an explosion of fruit and pine mixed up with some caramel and bread. Taste is bitter but really well balanced, backed up with a light body and a long bitter finish. Taste notes of peach, grape fruit, resin and some bread. Loved it!

minutemat (2252) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2015
Keg @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours clear gold with good off-white head. Aroma is sweet caramel. Taste is sweet with citrus, pine and more caramel and a nice alcohol bite underpinning proceedings. A classic IPA.

Dr_Fellini (769) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a light amber orangish color with an off white head. Aroma is big citrusy hops, with a nice balanced malt backbone. Flavor is a bit more on the bitter end, but has a good fruity citrusy hop presence. A nice flagship IPA.

GreatDane1632 (821) - USA - MAY 16, 2015
Rated based on notes from 26 May 2012 -- This is a standby IPA. If a bar doesn’t have a good IPA, it should at least have this beer.

kustie (343) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle. Citrus, caramel and malt in aroma. Taste is also malty with bitter long nice aftertaste. Flavors of malt, tropical fruits, grape, pine. Very nice aftertaste.

ALLOVATE (2547) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2015
Looks the picture of health. Radiant, orange amber with a messy inch of foam atop. Daubs a devilish lace in its wake. Bold, resinous and piney, whole cone nose brimmed by hints of bitter grapefruit, roasted peanut husks, doughy white bread and lemon peel. Noticeably dulled hop notes on the palate. Mild burnt rubber amongst some tree-sap, nettles and sharp, bitter herbs. Quite tight and on the leaner side as far as body with light carbonation. Lengthy bitter hop swallow with a light hint of honey and bready malts. Seems to lack some tropical fruit and esters to lift it. Quaffable but not a stand-out!

MarcoDL (2645) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle at tasting. Golden pour, white head. Aroma of passion fruit and citrus. Taste has grapefruit, citrus, passion fruit and a little biscuity caramel. Very balanced and tasty.

The Beerbistro (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)
February 17, 2015
The beer pours a translucent golden orange colour with a bubbly white head. The aroma is lemony, grainy, with hints of caramel and yeast. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour was caramel, weak citrus hops, and a light fruitiness. Good, but not as goo as the arrogant bastard.
