COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Northwest style IPA is generously hopped to 60 IBUs with Centennial hops from the Yakima Valley. Brewed in the classic style with two-row Pale and Crystal malt, our IPA is a real thirst quencher. It has a full, malty body and theres even a hint of fresh citrus to it. Perfect after your favorite water sport. Even if that happens to be the grueling drag-the-poolside-lounge-chair-into-the-sun event. Classic IPA is available in 6-packs, 12-packs, and on draft. ABV 6% IBU 60

scanman (150) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - AUG 10, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2006 Very flavorful IPA. Solid aftertaste: hoppy, bitter, but pleasant malty mouth feel. There is a citrusy aroma, but hard to taste with the IPA bite that takes hold. Great with pretzels. Recommended for the price. $5.99/six pack . Ill buy again!

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - AUG 8, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2007 12 oz bottle. Average size head, Clear Gold color. Very nice hoppy lemon/fruity aroma. Refreshing balanced hoppy lemon & biscuity taste. A bit of a grapefruity, metallic aftertaste. Almost ruins it...Pretty decent beer but doubt i would buy more of these due to the astringant metalic bitter finish. Moderate carbonation, watery mouthfeel, light body.*********** 6/28/2007 rerate-approx 10 months later- orig rating was 8/4/6/2/12*********** 12 oz bottle via Roths. Pours a semi-clear amber with an average sized head. Nose is unique..not sure what the smell is, but there are some earthy hops as well. Taste is caramel with some subtle fruitiness...pear i think, as well as grapefruit. Finish is fairly bitter. Body is a bit light. Carbonation is average.

From 12oz Bottle. Pours a light golden amber color with a thin layer of nice white head. A clean, grassy hops aroma with a hint of grilled sweet corn highlights the bouquet, along with a hint of almonds. Relatively light bodied with a clean, refreshing carbonated mouthfeel. Pleasant amount of bitterness that lasts throughout the palate, never getting exceptionally powerful. Some gentle, biscuity malt characters are allowed to show through, giving it a bit of bready sweetness. This creates a nice, pleasant balance that clearly fits its English IPA description. Clean, refreshing finish of dandelion flowers.

Much better then the scores here indicate. Dont expect a Pac NW hop bomb though. Chill haze amber, creamy off white head with great lacing. As it warmed, nice floraly perfume and grapefruit hop tones emerge with soft notes of pine and earth. A faint toasty caramel note plays out late. Well bittered up front with good earthy citrus flavors throughout, and a soft sweet malt character playing the background role. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, hoppy finish. I made it into my session ale during a week in Austin, and I would gladly do it again soon...

Bottle obtained in a trade with <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?U target=blank>DarkElf, thanks Stephen. Golden-orange in colour, dissipating white head, patchy lace. The flavour is slightly sweet, some light citrus hops and some caramel malts. The flavour was grassy, some citrus hops, light pine, caramel malt balance. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes with a lingering moderate bitterness, slightly dry.

Bottle from the Blue Max. This, along with Smuttynose IPA make me a true believer in this style.A mild hoppiness matched up with a perfect blend of malts have made this one of my favorite summer brews.Very refreshing and enjoyable

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2006
Tasted in Toronto. Obtained on a trip to Boulder Colorado. Tasted in a dimple mug. Appearance is rusty / abmer with initial big white head that subsides to thin wispyness. Cheescake like aroma with hints of grapefruit, citrus and flowery hops. Flavour is balanced, grapefruit bitterness upfront and in the finish but is complemented by a malty biscuit backbone that lingers sublime.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Clear, pale amber hue, bone white head, smallish but staying. Aroma: soft, and slightly hoppy, mostly soapy. Minor citrus, but any hoppy kick is muted, at best. Tasting it: nice hop attack on the palate, dry and brittle in the mouthfeel, before slowly fading back. Returns with each sip. Medium bodied, lingering hoppy finish. Gets juicier and brighter toward the end. Enjoyable texture. Nice taste. Feels dry-hopped, and I imagined if it werent, it wouldnt be quite so enjoyable. Not bad, though, not bad at all.
