COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Medium amber, light, with little aroma. Very smooth for an IPA. If you wanted to get into IPAs you should start with this one. Nice hoppy flavor but not too strong.

Tap @ Lakewood Ram. Clear, orange-gold pour with a short white head leaving heavy lace. Pretty standard PNW IPA, with a spruce nose, medium body and carbonation and a bitter, grapefruit finish. Toast, citrus and pine flavors populate the body. No major commissions, but neither is there anything remarkable about this IPA.

2.3
AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2004
Orange color with brown overtones and a thin, white head. Resiny hop aroma that remind me more of Columbus or other C-hops than the Mt. Hood mentioned in the description. I smell pine, citrus, and grapefruit not white pepper. There is also a toasty aromatic malt underlying the hops. The malt character is quite odd (biscuity, toasty, highly roasted but not burnt). This malt foundation for the hop flavor is distinct but does not match well in my opinion. The acidity from the hops creates a rather obnoxious overall flavor when combined with the other flavor components.

Big Horn brews tend to be overly hopped, so when they say, "medium hopped," beware. orange peel and a bit of cinnamon give this IPA some complexity, but the hoppy finish overrides that.

copper pour with a red hue, nice sized white head on top. citrus hops on the nose with some hints of bread + sweet malts mixed in as well. nice hoppy flavor up front followed by some light sweetness, bitter floral finish. very nice.

chicagobears (476) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - SEP 30, 2006
Draught: Reddish brown. Aroma of citrus hops. A simple, one-dimensional IPA. Huge on the bitterness. I ordered this cause I wanted something hopped up. This will sooth the craving of any hop head like me.

Hooker (468) - Coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2004
Clear Reddish amber colour. slight head. mild citric hoppy nose. definite grapefruit hoppy taste.

3.2
mintzmeet (458) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2016
1.1 Light chestnut color. Oily fine bubbled head. Slight mahoganyesque taste, nutty in that way. Almost like a light amber overhopped. Citrusy (spicy like grapefruit) hops complimented by a nice touch of alcohol in the aftertaste.

On tap at the Ram, U. Village. This IPA isn’t bad but they serve it ice cold. Copper colored with little to no head. The aroma is killed by the freezing temperature of the beer. However, I think I’m getting a hint of grapefruit in the nose. Light - Medium bodied. Moderately flavored hop intensity throughout, in addition to the light flavors of grapefruit. Giving it a little time to warm up definitely made this a better beer.

3.7
Tweety (377) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 18, 2009
On-tap at Humperdinks in Arlington, TX. I thought this was a pretty damn good IPA. Not overly hoppy, in fact a little less hops than I usually expect from an IPA, but it was quite tasty nonetheless.
