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.

Poured a hazy light amber with a thin white head. The aroma is grassy with loads of fruit and a hint of caramel. The flavour is medium bitter with a grassy hop, nettle liqourice creamy palate. A classic IPA and one of the very best.

Had several bottles of this at a science function in California this week. Big hops in the nose and the taste. Dry, crisp, refreshing bitterness.

A standard-setting IPA, heavy on the pacific hops with a strong but enjoyable bitterness. The appearance was surprisingly golden clear and luminescent, included a solid white head. Smell and taste were both of a strong flavorful intensity. Very satisfying and fresh hoppy flavor, hoppiness seems intentionally out of balance with malty or sweet flavors. Some floral hop accents. Finishes clean and appetizing for another round. Worthy of its reputation, although not my personal favorite IPA.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle with a Best By date of 11/20/2014. Aroma is rather hop forward with quite a bit of pine resin and grapefruit. A bit of wood and hop resins. Some light cracker and bread notes. Hints of stone and tropical fruit esters. Pours a slightly hazy, golden orange with a small, moderately thick, white head with average retention as it recedes to the edges. Moderate lacing and medium length legs. Flavor has a light sweetness with a bit of bread and cracker notes. A moderately strong bitterness with a hint of alcohol in the finish. Moderately strong grapefruit hop notes with hints of orange and other citrus. Medium light pine resin and a hint of wood. Some faint stone fruit notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty nice IPA, but nothing special either. Some nice hop character, but it lacks the super fruitiness of the newer hop varietals.

TEJA (2448) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2015
Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. Long lasting off white head. Clear golden beer. Firm american hop aroma with a tuch of bergamott. Big hop taste with a solid bitternes that is balanced with all other taste in the beer. The sweetness is low but balance the bitterness. Well fermented to give a dry finnish.
