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.

Beautiful beer. Frothy head good lacing. Citrus and grass. Almost balanced. Light fruity notes. Sticky mouth feel. Fair ipa, I wish it was fresher.

Pour hazy blond, two finger white head. Smell super big floral hops, sticky, pine needles Taste bitter floral sticky hops Mid body. Think Ruination may be easier to drink Good if you are into being punched in the face with bitter hops, well done

COMRADEJOSH (318) - Ft Hood, Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Nice aroma of fresh hops. Taste is hop forward over a crisp ale without being overly bitter or strong on alcohol. I would say this sets the standard for what IPA should be judged from.

Creedence (286) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2014
Keg at Porters. Pours amber, with a white patchy head. Very malty nose, toffee, caramel, hay etc and some yeast. Some lighter hops and pine in the background. Quite malty flavour, nice hoppy finish. Dry yeasty and malty finish, medium body and carbonation. I suspect this keg was neither the freshest nor the most recently tapped, because was not as good or as hoppy an IPA as I expected. Will have to rerate.

SlimHabib (342) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle pour. Hazy golden with small to medium white head. Hoppy is the only way to describe this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Salmoniform (1244) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Poured from tap to glass. Slightly hazy orange hue with white head. Aroma is orange, pine, citrus peel, spicy, straw. Mouthfeel is nice with medium light body and zesty carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness initially followed by a big hop bitterness that extends through the finish. Overall this is a great shelf IPA.

dagimp (859) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle at Bar Liberte in Philly. Drank from the bottle. Pungent, dank aroma. Lots of citrus rind. Mouthfeel is very carbonated and slightly sticky. Taste is grapefruit rind all the way. Very bitter. Nothing subtle about this. Hops are the only thing going on with this beer. No pretext of balance, but that’s OK sometimes. Pretty decent and I’d drink again. But I wouldn’t drink often.

circinus (265) - SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle 33 cl. Hazy orange with a white head. Hops, caramel, distinct strong bitterness, wormwood, citrus/lemon. Medium body, medium carbonation, strong bitter finish. Lacked hops aroma to balance the bitterness, but maybe it’s a bit old?

Stone, re-do this one, not much to say, beginner level IPA, actually a perfect beginner level IPA..
