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.

Like IPA’s?? Then you will like this one. On tap @ The Press Room. Pours golden hue with a white, foamy, long lasting white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops and biscuit malt. Light-medium, tangy body. Citrusy hops dominate the flavor with a biscuit malt provide good balance. Finish is long lasting, dry and hoppy.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2011 Complex hop flavors here, big bitterness at the end, that ramps up afterwards. Not balanced with malts though, decent

Nice hoppy aroma with a bit of malt to back it up, very hoppy taste, bitter hop finish, solid IPA.

dukeredhair (243) - California, USA - APR 12, 2011
It’s become a standard for California IPA’s. Aroma is hops, pine citrus. Appearance is gold clear with a nice white head. taste is hops. Where I feel like this falls flat is it lacks a nice smooth malt backdrop, it tastes a bit like hop tea. Palate is also a bit thin. Overall a good refreshing IPA but nowhere near the best.

LetsGoState (771) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Appearance is clear amber with a medium white head. Aroma is pine hops with a little sweetness. Taste is a hint of sweet malts, but mostly earth hops and medium bitterness. Overall very well balanced and probably the best IPA I have tried.

gEUS (1674) - Linden, BELGIUM - JAN 22, 2012
Pours golden with an orange haze. Nose is citrus with hints of honey, some pineapple.. Fresh mouthfeel, crisper palate than most IPA’s (?) but bitter overtone from beginning to finish.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2012 Great citrusy aroma with a pale golden appearance. Hoppy taste with citrus overtones. Crisp light mouth with a lingering bitter finish. Not bad, a good IPA.

Bottle 355 ml [2011]. Tasted a couple of month after the bb. Appeance: Pours honey whith a medium beige head. Aroma: Hoppy, citrus (grapefruit). Taste: Hoppy, grapefruit and a bitter finish. Overall: Nice IPA but is probably way better when fresh.

Nocturne (1674) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2012
Keg at Craft Beer Co., London. Bouquet of floral fruitiness on the nose. Powerful bitter sensations on the tongue, noticably bracing but soft and buttery underneath. And I hear they do even more intense IPAs? Sign me up.
