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.

ALIBALI (346) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - JUN 18, 2016
In der Nase viel viel Zitrone und ne Menge florale Aromen. Frisch!!! und irgendwie "GRÜN" :). Der Trunk dann heftig, garstig und fast Hopfenscharf, wenn man das so nennen darf. Klasse, aber auch extrem. Der Nachhall macht dann ebenfalls keine Gefangenen. Lang und hart herb. Heiss. Aus der 0,33l Dose von Stone Berlin. 2 Euro. Vom CRAFT MARKET 2016 HH.

tricksta_p (3144) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2016
From tap at Craft & Draft, Amsterdam. Aroma is fruity hops, grapefruit, tropical, some biscuit malt, pine resin. Flavour is lightly sweetish with a potent bitter finish. Body is medium. Very hoppy with some malty notes. A very fine IPA.

DavidAust (173) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 17, 2016
560ml bottle, shared in two snifters. Overall a very good beer, and I can only imagine the wow factor back in 1997 nearly 20 years ago. However the world has caught up and I’m going to say that their "go to IPA" even at only a sessionable alcohol is better (as I expect their skills are too after nearly 20 years of practice). Nice beer, was huge in it’s time and still very good.

fletchfighters (1382) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2016
640ML bottle from Dan Murphy’s Slightly hazy orange color. Bright white head that falls to a thick collar. Good lacing left in the glass. Nose is a good bread and toffee background with pine, grapefruit and orange. taste is well balanced. Lots of pine and grapefruit. Subtle caramel and toast background to soften the hops just enough. Long lasting bitterness. Very dry finish. Trademark SD style of beer. Easy to drink and always want more of this.

Pite z kega na WFDP. Cudowne IPA. Cechuje się bardzo wysoką pianą, pięknym lacingiem, a także pomarańczową barwą. W aromacie czuć bardzo intensywne cytrusy i owoce. W smaku tak samo - do tego dochodzi lekko zarysowana słodowość. Końcówka jest umiarkowanie długa, bardzo przyjemna. Piwo jest niesamowicie orzeźwiające, bardzo lekkie i ogólnie bliskie perfekcji.
