Bold, spicy and menacingly delicious, this American-hopped India Pale Ale offers an aromatic punch and then follows through with a lasting, full-bodied finish.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 22, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2004 Holy hops. Perhaps my favorite IPA, at least to drink on a regular basis. Great in bottles and on tap. RERATE: I didn't lower the rating too much, and this still remains one of my favorites all around, it just isn't quite as good as I once thought. The hop syrup feel is oh so smooth, given that it tastes like pinecones. Relatively full bodied. Bitter aftertaste, somewhat sticky, finish is more on the malt side. I think I figured that since I rated this early on in my ratebeer days that it wasn't as hoppy as I thought, but upon returning to this wonder, but nope, it really has got tons of hops. Lovely beer.

Obfuscate (224) - Minneapolis, - APR 19, 2015
Amber in color with a fluffy off white head. Grapefruit, caramel, citrus, bread. Not bad but not as good as I expected.

The Etruscan (567) - Tuscany, ITALY - APR 19, 2015
Off white light beige thick head. Dark amber-copper colour. Aroma is moderately hoppy with light fruity (citrus and peach) with light biscuit and caramel notes. Flavor is moderately hoppy with light fruity (apricot) tones, ending in a bitter finish. Medium bodied.

TH28 (194) - - APR 18, 2015
12oz bottle. Code date of 8/9/15. Appearance: Deep amber and clear with a light khaki head. Aroma: relatively faint hop aroma for an American IPA. Some floral and herbal notes, but it’s minimal. Caramel malt also noticeable. Taste: Rich caramel and toasty malt flavors dominate, with a sharp hop bitterness that has some herbal and resinous notes. Mouthfeel: Medium body with some viscosity and low carbonation. Finish: Some lingering herbal bitterness and caramel malt. Overall: Definitely an east coast as opposed to west coast IPA. More malt balanced than a west coast IPA. Drinks like a slightly hoppier American Amber

Amber, big foam. Filtered. Grassy resinous fruoty hops in the nose. Medium body. Taste is a bit flat, not incredible!

Barreras (1157) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - APR 17, 2015
Pours a light yellow color until it settles into a light copper color. Drank this beer on nitro which could explain why it was creamy with a light IPA bitterness aftertaste. Minimal floral flavor, more of a light IPA in complexity as well as characteristics.

Abrakarl (377) - SWEDEN - APR 17, 2015
Nice aroma and taste. Some pine together with the hops but it is too bitter for me....

keanex (1592) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2015
Appearance: Very light haze in the deep amber to copper body. Short light tan head with average to poor retention. Settles in a light coating.
Aroma: Very light aroma with malt sweetness, light peppery aroma, tea and herbal hop aromas.
Taste: Moderately bitter grapefruit runs through with peppery floral overlying flavors. Solid malt backing with a lingering spicey hop presence.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: The hop profile isn’t a favorite of mine. Decent IPA, but not for me.

danielecamo (656) - ITALY - APR 13, 2015
In bottiglia da 33cl. Aroma di caramello, erbaceo e vegetale. Al palato resinoso, vegetale ed erbaceo. La luppolatura ha lasciato solo un amaro eccessivo mentre i suoi profumi se ne sono già andati.
