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.

googleimage83 (55) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2016
Pours translucent gold, honey-like colour, small persistent head and nice lacing. Very bright in appearance and aroma - pine, citrus and malt nose is exactly what you want in an IPA. Taste is perfectly balanced - orange, grapefruit, resiny hops, noticeable malt profile with toast and caramel... lingering bitter finish of citrus pith. And really, really refreshing. Absolutely in the upper echelon of IPAs.

pkomar (257) - Poznan, POLAND - SEP 30, 2016
33cl can from Stone Berlin - nice aroma of tropical fruits (mango, melon, citrus). Nice balance between high bitterness and medium sweetness. Nice aftertaste that stays on the palate for a while and leaves some grapefruit notes. Bitterness feels also very pleasant with a mixture of herbs and grapefruit. Great, very drinkable beer.

tmrmwel (1770) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2016
Can, brewed in Germany. Pours slightly hazy yellow, with a big creamy head receding to finger thickness. Aroma is bitter hops, with pine and citrusy notes, as well as some malts with biscuits and honey. Medium body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is bitter, with resin, pine and citrusy notes of grapefruit and orange peel, grassy notes, stone fruits and light tropical notes, as well as lots of malts with cereals and honey balancing it all. Lingering bitter finish. Very easy drinking, and moreish.

ogniskowicz (709) - POLAND - SEP 27, 2016
Standardowa IPA. Bez wad, ale też nie mająca nic takiego co by człowieka skłaniało do rozwodzenia się na jej temat.
