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.

Dat lacing. Pours a hazy straw color with a nice white head. Brilliant lacing n the glass. I love it. Fruity estery aroma along the same lines as Ruination. Taste is mostly hops - resin is strong and pine is in there. Mild citrus flavor peaks through as it warms up, but not enough. Good beer, but doesn’t feel very balanced. I prefer a little more malt character in an IPA. I think this beer’s big brother Ruination hits the nail on the head in terms of balance.

It pours golden yellow, thin white head medium bubbles. The aroma is pine, grass, zest, don’t get much else. As expectee strong hops flavour, everlasting bitter finish. It’s one dimensional but nails it.

Pours a clear amber with a small foamy white head. Awesome aroma of fresh floral hops. Delicious flavour of fresh citrus hops with enough malt to make the taste very well balanced.

AgentAle (939) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 4, 2015
Aroma is grapefruit, tanin, clove, an earthiness, lemongrass. Roasty malts with caramel and honey hints. Taste is a rich sweet malt body transitioning into a deep hop profile that is passionfruit fruit, pine needles, clove and hay. Appearance is a slightly hazy orange with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

ippopotamo36 (598) - Rome, ITALY - APR 3, 2015
At a great tasting in Vranovo-Serbia, with markoijelena and cika Boban. Bottle courtesy of Costantin from the Hoppy Imp, Greece. Thank you fratello! It comes clear immediately that the bottle is not that young. Pours golden cloudy and bright, medium white cap. Nose: orang, syrupy, a bit too thin (old-flat?). Mouth: malty with a citrusy hoppy accent.

Draught. Golden yellow with with small foamy white head, grassy hops aroma, low carbonation, balanced hoppy taste, long finish. Nearest thing to golden standard for an India Pale Ale.
