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.

As it was in the beginning, is now, and forever shall be, the quintessential SoCal IPA.Popped my craft brew cherry with the 22oz. incarnation and have wavered back and forth about the merits of the beer (primarily due to competition from the widely underappreciated but arguably most-likely-to-rival, Lagunitas IPA). But in the end, it?s the original, the meter by which all other IPAs are measured.Nose is ripe, resiny hop, cut-grass, bready malt, some sourness, and a lingering waft of orange citrus. Balanced heaviness in mouthfeel and tingly carbonation give way to sticky hop, biscuits, and bright citrus flavors that build and linger on the tongue. Alcohol is not upfront but shows up in the profile as the glass gets lower. While I could apply a myriad of exacting critiques - i.e its very sharp in flavor and not necessarly right for drinking on the reg - it?s a real classic. Oh yeah, and it looks pretty good in a glass...

kaserov (26) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 29, 2016
Increíble aroma. Me recuerda al de la Hop Devil de Ugly Duck, pero más sabroso. Color amarillo tirando a ambarino. Espuma blanca de un dedo de grosor que se disipa poco a poco en cuestión de cinco minutos. Poca carbonatación (casi ninguna, salvo al verter la cerveza). Burbujas esporádicas. En boca es una maravilla, con bastante amargor pero controlado y placentero. Me recuerda a la Bells Two Hearted Ale. Un trago tras otro sin problema alguno.

0,33l Dose. Orangenes trübes Bier, intensiver Geruch nach exotischen Früchten wie Mango. Im Geschmack wird diese fruchtige Komponente der Hopfung bestätigt. Im Abgang etwas zu herb!
