COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amber in color, our India Pale Ale exhibits great underlying malt characteristics- smoky roasted notes with fruity accents and a slightly buttery character. Yet the flavor predominates with a lush layer of hops resulting in a wonderful aroma and taste- citrusy, floral & oh-so spicy.

Poured a golden/copper body with a small white head. Feint hop aroma. Flavor was a little on the malty side with just hints of hops here and there. Not very exciting.

A great balanced IPA. nose if very floral and hoppy. taste is more rounded out. some smooth malt to take the edge of all the hops. nice palate with just the right amount of carbonation.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - APR 24, 2002
Unfiltered light amber with some suspended flecks. Creamy off white head. Light carbonation. Aroma of toasted malts and citric hops. Fills your mouth with a full body and balanced flavor. Creamy yet lightly crisp. Juicy citric hoppiness atop a chewy malt base. Good carrot burps. Not as balanced or integrated as previous versions but all in all a good session IPA. Finishes thicker. Nicely done as always.

Appears a hazy orange amber with a small white cap that fades into a small collar. Mild spotty lacing is left around the glass. Smell is of of caramelized & roasty malts with mild grass notes. Taste is of the same aromas...nothing special. Run of the mill style IPA. Mouthfeel is dusty, metallic, bitter, and mildly sour. Iím glad I wasted $5 at Michaelís Deli, who manages to rape everyone who wants to buy beer there.

Very mysterious. Itís kind of like the hops packed up and left. Where are they? It seems like they were here, but they arenít now. Kind of disappointing. Then again I am the first rating since November. It doesnít seem as if the Weyerbacher IPA is really around anymore. Oh well

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2005
strong odor of hops, slightly spicy nose as well. color is pretty dark for an ipa, medium brown, a little cloudy, pretty much no head at all. taste starts with all the hops one would expect, and then gives way to some malts and ends with some spice tones. I would place this in the "very drinkable" class of ipaís that i have had....the malts that come through help it out alot.

Does Weyerbacher make a bad beer? If so, I havenít found it yet. This is an excellent IPA. Hoppy - but not overdone. Nice amber color and great hop/fruit aroma.

A well balanced IPA - a little unbalanced on the malty side though - not quite hoppy enough for style. But a good brew nonetheless.

This is a very flavorful brew! An excellent creation by this up and coming micro-brew. The head is a fluffy beigh bed of soft bubbles that creates a nice flow of lacelets around the glass. The aroma is slightly citrusy with a nod towards a woody or piney scent. Theer is once again just a bit too much carbonation, but not as noticeable as in their Scoth Ale. The color is a cloudy copper orange. The flavor is plentiful though. Buttery, creamy, slighly sweet, but also a great blend of hops to offset the sweetness. No sweet or bitter aftertaste, just one of smoothness. I like this beer alot. The high carbonation prevents this beer from being a homerun in my book, but otherwise a great IPA.

Great balance of hops and malt, most other IPAís get too carried away with hop bitterness and skimp on the malt, good year round
