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.

Bottle at Magic_dave6’s disco dance tasting. Gold, thin white head. Hazy american hops. Mouth is quite watery hops, quite bitter, grass, slightly sweet. Finishes dry bitterness with some slightly sweet woodiness. Good.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - APR 15, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear golden with a small white head that fades leaving some lacing. Aroma of citrus and floral hops with a solid malt backbone. Taste is the same as aroma with a hint of pine. Medium mouthfeel with a moderate to strong amount of bitterness. Very good.

MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Moderate amounts of IPA citrus in both the nose and mouth, in addition to the hop bitterness. Golden body with long lasting head.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear orange color with a small off white head. Aroma of cascade hops, caramel malt and grapefruit. Taste is hoppy and semi sweet. Another west coast hop monster but I do have to say that this one is relatively balanced though.

ekstedt (6512) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2008
<i>Bottle (35 cl) at the Rover, Göteborg, Sweden</i>. Cloudy amber/orange, low white head. Piney and apricot hop aroma, no malt character. Medium bodied and smooth. Well balanced, long bitter finish. Overrated.

Hopdropandfall (8) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2009 does not count
I thought this was a very good IPA but definitely not worth the extra$ IMO. I would rather have a Flying Dod Snake Dog and use the extra cash for a cigar

luttonm (4618) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2009
12oz. Golden-ish pour with creamy head, standard. Hoppy bitter citrus, loads of caramel malts. Sweet spot of IPAs, excellent west coast example. Crisp.

Beer5000 (5900) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2009
12 oz bottle. Hazy orange body with a diminishing off-white head. Aroma is fruity peaches and grapefruit. Flavor is medium sweet malty with notes of caramel and a nice balanced bitterness. It actually does not feel as bitter as 70 IBU, but there is a clean pronounced bitterness. Lovely.
