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 on draft at Humperdinks in Arlington, Tx. Quite a pedestrian IPA. Could benefit from a more bitter flavor profile. The hops used in this ale are quite piney and herbal - not my favorite for the style, but flavor hops are certainly present for those wanting a hop fix. A decent beer.

Dark amber with good carbonation. Light malt aroma with a sour taste and aftertaste on a moderate body.

On tap in a very well-priced sampler.Pale copper color, thick white head. Hops and lime/tropical fruit on nose. Thick in mouth, hoppy bite goes to pieny, almost too much, but still good.

Pours nice from a take out growler. Amber with off white head. Mild hop aroma, weak hop bitterness overpowered by malty sweetness for an IPA. Good drinkable beer, but really cannot be compared to a trad IPA.

Frozer (240) - Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Poured into a pint glass on tap. A dark amber red with very little head. Not much in terms of aroma. Medium hoppiness. Somewhat weak for the style. There is an unpleasant aftertaste that hangs in your mouth.

This had a nice hop flavor, but until I came back to my hotel to rate this, I didnt know it was an IPA. I thought it was an amber. Just not hoppy enough to claim IPA status. But the best of the beers I sampled at Big Horn.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2007 Arlington Location- A very nice example of an American IPA. Its good to be able to find good brews around here, and Humperdinks is one of the few places you can find them. This one pours an amber with little white head. Fairly high carbonation gives this a drier palate than would otherwise be. Bitterness is clean and balanced. My only complaint is a lack of hop flavor, dry hopping should have been used more. A great IPA.

Light head, pale golden body. A decent beer, but for an IPA not that amazing.

Pours a slightly milky golden yellow with a sparse bright white head. Notes of caramel and grapefruit. Definite flavors of ruby red grapefruit. Sour palate that lasts quite a while. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2003 Bitter, IPA, whatever it is it sucks. Smelled some grapefruit hops, and then that's all I tasted. Bitter finish, but this just tasted like water and hops to me. This brewery SUCKS.
