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.

Boozy aroma with citrus notes. Clear amber colour. Tropical fruit notes, with caramel flavour; sustained bitter finish. Medium body and lively carbonation. Quite a tasty beer.

dhatton (241) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Brilliant golden color, clear body, with ample fluffy white head. Sticky lacing as I progressed through the glass. Very fresh and aromatic...strong floral and citrus scents on the onset. Slightly peppery finish. Huge pine flavors with grapefruit and other citrus notes. Some bready biscuit flavors as well. Well-balanced with plenty of zip from the hoppy goodness.

TEJA (2369) - 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.

Freaky_tiki (1038) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
On tap at Toronto’s most lame Louis Cifer is a great find. Not as hoppy as expected, but with a solid core of bitterness throughout. Didn’t measure up to the Great Lakes Karma Citra I had after it, but still pretty solid.

trapped (2146) - New York, TURKEY - APR 2, 2015
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.

HopsandBolts (258) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2015 650 ml bottle from the LCBO.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy amber colour with lots of white head. Average retention and lots of lacing.

Aroma: Malt, hops.

Flavours: Malt, citrus, slightly bitter hop finish.

Mouthfeel: Average viscosity with higher carbonation.

Overall: Nice IPA but I was surprised to find more malt than I expected. This wasn’t a bad thing as there was a good balance between the malt and citrus.

Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a light amber orangish color with an off white head. Aroma is big citrusy hops, with a nice balanced malt backbone. Flavor is a bit more on the bitter end, but has a good fruity citrusy hop presence. A nice flagship IPA.

minutemat (4173) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2015
Keg @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours clear gold with good off-white head. Aroma is sweet caramel. Taste is sweet with citrus, pine and more caramel and a nice alcohol bite underpinning proceedings. A classic IPA.

Woodspop (14) - Rivervale, AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2015
Really good pour, great head, was frozen due to fridge temp being reduced. Bitter after taste. Fruity smell, floral bit of a caramel like taste. Will try one that hasn’t been frozen.
