Brewed as a medium India Pale Ale, this full-flavored moderately hopped beer has the strongest hop character of our ales. Made for hopheads and new beer aficionados. The grist composition is 94% Pale malt, with the remaining grain bill consisting of carastan malts. The finishing Mt. Hood hop addition in the whirlpool gives this beer a good hop character without becoming excessively bitter. The beer is fined instead of filtered so the hop character is not stripped away.

Sampled draught at Humperdinks, Dallas, Texas.
Reddish amber. Intensely hoppy nose with notes af aromatic oils, flower and citrus. Not much malt there to balance it, but considering the poor malt structure of the other beers at this brewery probably it's a good thing that the pleasant hop flavours just lingers on into a long bitter finish and bypasses the (lack of) body. I quite enjoyed this beer.

Not a terrible beer. Tap at Humperdinks Arlington. Clear orange with a nice aroma of citrus and light pine. Bitter and metallic taste. Overall better skipped.

2012-07-27, draught at Ram Restaurant and Brewery, Northgate, Seattle, 8-4-7-5-15=39
Cloudy amber color. Very nice aroma of fruity hops, oranges and other citrus fruits, a touch of tropical fruits. Good lean body, with a semi-dry mouthfeel, good malt and toffee flavor, and immediate hopping, more resiny than fruity, but still with a lemony edge; long final.
Fresh, hop forward and very pleasant.

2006-12-17, draught at Humperdinks, Dallas, as Big Red IPA, 8-4-7-4-15=38
Light amber color; thin head, nice lace. Fruity hop aroma, resiny. Medium body structure, heavy hopping (with some resins, aggressive enough) but not enough malty. Good.

yngwie (16969) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2013
On tap at Ram, Tacoma. It pours an unclear, dark orange body under some off-white to light beige head leaving curtains. Lots of pine cones in the aroma, not much maltyness kicking in. Fruityness and a touch of peaches too. Full body, pleasant carbonation. Quite dry, with a nice bitterness in the flavor, both initially and in the end. Some maltyness to back it up. Certainly a nice IPA, well worth a second and third glass. 130629

mcberko (16812) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2015
On tap at Big Horn U District, pours a cloudy dirty amber with a small white head. Nose brings out lots of dank resinous hops, some herbal hops, and bready caramel. Flavour is a bit disjointed, with stale bready caramel malt and resinous hops. The balance isnt quite right, as there seem to be some strange flavours in here. Not a big fan, but its not a disaster.

brokensail (16401) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 28, 2015
On tap @ Ram - Kent. Amber in color with some off-white foam. Probably their best beer, at least of the regular lineup. Theres a lot of pine and citrus rind character along with some bread and toast. Definitely more caramel than Id like, though. Pretty floral and slightly grassy, too. Decent enough bitterness.

Draft - Pine and grapefruit. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Tropical fruit and grapefruit with a nice balanced bitterness. Very nice and fruity.
