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.

Amazing beer. My favorite of all time. No matter what I try I keep coming back for more. Wasn't in love at first, but it grew on me and continues to do so. Very floral and fruity with multiple layers of complexity. Perfect hop bitterness lingers just long enough. Just enough malt to balance the powerful hops. Perfect head which adheres to the glass to remind you it is disappearing by the sip. I buy it by the case whenever I can find it! I've tried many beers that are rated higher on this site, but none come close to the perfection of this beer for me. This beer has an unspeakable quality about it that is hard to describe but that I grow to appreciate more and more each year. I would buy the company if I could! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0,33l Dose. Orangenes trübes Bier, intensiver Geruch nach exotischen Früchten wie Mango. Im Geschmack wird diese fruchtige Komponente der Hopfung bestätigt. Im Abgang etwas zu herb!

Can. And this is the Berlin version. Fresh aroma of hops, sweet grapefruit, citrus, light touch of caramel in the background. Taste is super smooth, fresh and hoppy.. Bitterness could be higher.
