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.

Nocturne (1795) - 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.

kambei70 (958) - - JAN 19, 2013
2013 bottle to pint glass. Pours hazy lemon yellow with orange highlights and decent white, foamy head. Aroma is a combination of piney and grassy hops with a lemon citrus smell and some floral. Taste is the same piney/grassy bitterness with some bread and a little citrus. A slight soapy quality. Mouthfeel is fuller than expected. Overall, the bitterness is a little to intense for my taste but a decent IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bitter to the max... no, really! :D Medium head with lacing. Amber orange. Palate little dissapointing, but still decent. Aromas of pine, citrus, fruity... Nice "on the glass" printed bottle.

On tap at Treno. Light gold pour, white head and nice lacing. Aroma is faint citrus and and not much else. taste is citrus and piney hops with some lemon zest and fresh bread. Medium body with lively carbonation. Probably a great summer beer, but I prefer more depth.
