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.

chickenflea (351) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2010
12-oz bottle. A - Aroma is citric, but not as with loads of heavy as some. Some floral undertones. Some other fruits also present, maybe peach. A - Cloudy golden color with a one-finger white fizzy head. Good lacing on the glass. T - Hops are featured up front and they are salty and wet. Sweet malts taste like honey and caramel. Long and bitter finish but not tonsil-twisting. Crisp. end. P - Medium body with a slightly sticky texture. O - For all the trash talking on the bottle, this is a balanced American IPA. Very drinkable, But it’s not something you want to hurry through. Savor it.

Lore (1900) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 17, 2016
opalescent golden colour medium sized creamy off-white head; aroma of (tropical) fruity, citrusy, floral, biscuity and resiny notes; bittersweet resiny taste with the same notes as the aroma and some overripe fruitiness; starts with sweetness which is followed by intensive and long lasting bitterness; a masterpiece!

Cristobal37 (630) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 16, 2016
Bottle Thanks Lorebacsi!! Surprisingly sweet malty aroma. Nice bitterness under the malts and the finish is where it’s at. Even dry bitterness with a quality finish. Tasted different from the tap but it’s still good.

AdolfoCC (97) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - APR 9, 2016
APARIENCIA: de color dorado con destellos naranjas, se observa cristalina y moderada actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma blanca, de burbuja compacta y buena retención. AROMA: de inicio el lúpulo con notas cítricas y algo herbales, notas de pino y resinosas sin embargo no son tan intensas. SABOR: amargor intenso de entrada seguido de notas herbales de entrada, notas de pino, mucho dankness, atrás de eso muy discretas notas cítricas. Al retrogusto, buena permanencia de ese amargor intenso, que queda pegado al paladar. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo ligero, se siente oleoso, carbonatación media. RESUMEN: una excelente cerveza, muy apegada al estilo que representa.

thirstyrabbit (1661) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 8, 2016
Tap, TCBW ’16. Bright orange body, tall head. Aroma has fresh American hops and caramelly malt. Some floral elements too. Taste has lots of hops and sweet citric fruits. Feels like a pretty standard IPA.
