COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This robust India Pale Ale follows British tradition by using bountiful amounts of fresh hop cones to produce a crisp clean character; blending Magnum, Crystal and Hallertauer hops with generous amounts of Munich and Carmel malt.

Really more of an English IPA than American because the bitterness is subdued. Very drinkable, IMHO. Sweetness hits you at first. My mouth is still burning from the Shakemantle Ale, so I may be missing a few flavors with this Wolavers. Oh, terrific aroma, too.

June 01: Nice color, very drinkable, nothing really BAD to say about it; just unmemorable. A disappointment after their Brown Ale. Oct 02: I was unfair to this beer, in my RateBeer infancy, as I was to many IPAs. Definitely hoppy, malt could be stronger, but has some nice apricot tinges in the nose and flavor, and the aftertaste is long and lingering. Good body. Above average IPA from an excellent brewer.

Re-Rate 10/10/02: Clear amber in color, the head is beige, creamy, moderate in stature, the lace is in dense sheets upon the glass. Nose is malt, lightly floral, hints of citrus. Front is inordinately sweet, light top, the finish is moderately acidic, modestly hopped, and a tad dry, more English IPA, than American, as with the Rogue Imperial IPA, nothing to be discomfited about. Ranks #824 on my current 1000 beer list.

Lt brown color, small head. Malty, slightly sweet, caramelized. Full bodied. Not very hoppy or bitter for an IPA. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is malty, wild a mild sharp bitterness.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 13, 2002
Light golden-orange hue. Whitish head, mostly diminishing. Floral hop nose. Slight spiciness. Sweetness first, nie maltiness...light to medium bodied, and a nice piney spicey hopped finish. Long lingering bitterness. Not a bad IPA. Bottled 2/12/02

A nice copper color with a fruit hoppy aroma very little body kind of thin on the palate well hopped but coud use more. Overall a very good IPA

argo0 (11353) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 3, 2002
Light copper, some head. Grapefruit aroma, hint of apricot. Grapefruit hoppy flavor with some pine. Some maltiness serves as a less-than-adequate balance. Very bitter aftertaste lingers.

foduck (330) - Denton, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2002
I appreciate Wolaverís concern for my health and the environment, but I wish their beer was a little better. Not very bitter for an IPA. Small head, large bubbles. Adequate strength. Nothing special really. More hops, please!

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 26, 2002
Nice hoppy beer but doesnt overdo it like some IPAs. Im not a huge IPA fan, so I like the relatively light hoppienss of this brew. Has a nice blend of malt that goes well with the hops. Not great but very solid.

Aurelius (4065) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2002
A pretty cool vanilla citrus aroma in the bottle, which turns piney in the glass. Highly carbonated, and just plain bitter. This beer is probably better if you let it rest and decarbonate. Tan orange beer. Crappy label, so Iím dinging it on appearance. Palate clingy and way bitter.
