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

Oakes (16128) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2005
Very bright golden-amber colour. The aroma is orangey, biscuity, kumquaty with a breadcrusty background. Mild hop-accented character with an ashy, slighlty astringent bitterness, mere hints of orange and a firm but simplistic pale malt note. A very basic, serviceable IPA but nothing more.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - DEC 12, 2005
Bottle. Honey body with a foamy head with alot of lacing. Nose-very hoppy-almost sickly sweet so. Taste-usual IPA things, classic PNW sticky resiny hops, citrus from the hops, good amount of bitter. I dont know-I think that the bitter, sweet, and malt is damn near perfect. I dont understand why this isnt rated a bit higher. An excellent IPA.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 12, 2005
Pale very clear pour, golden and producing a tiny white sheet of foam that concentrates on the glass sides. Straightforward hop aromatics jingle through floral and citrus fruit dominants (tangerine, peach juice). Fresh nature, underwhelming malts stay shy and cornered. Fair PNW bitterness, absent alcohol feel. Very active carbonation ensures the food pairing claims, cleansing the tongue effectively, and remaining easy to drink with its thin body characteristic. Ive probably had almost the same beer under 20+ different names, but its a clean if basic hardworker. How they make english hops feel american in essence, only them know.

This is a respectable IPA, but the hops overpower the malts a bit too much for my taste.

On tap at Ivars.

A straightfoward IPA with a more English than PacNW flavor. The malts round out the taste; the mouthfeel is very good.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 11, 2005
This beer has an excellent aroma profile. A sweet hoppy nose complemented nicely by just enough malt. Beer is light and easy to drink which makes it great for a hot day. Not much bitterness for an IPA though.

FlacoAlto (4176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 26, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2005 Pours a clear light copper color with a frothy, yet thin, pale tan colored head. The aroma has notes of bright citrus, a grassy herbal character, a bit of astringent grain husk, toasty malt notes and perhaps a hint of caramel. The taste has a nice sharp bitterness from beginning to end. This is definitely a hop focused beer; there is a nice citrus note here that reminds me of lemons & oranges. There is only a hint of malt character here; a bit of sweet grain character, and a hint of toasted malt in the finish. This is a pretty nice, easy drinking IPA; it has a solid hop bite and a bit of hop flavor to it, and it goes down quite easily. If the malt character were a bit more complex the hop flavor might shine through a bit more.

Pours a light orange/yellow color. Aroma is somewhat pinelike. Slightly bitter maltiness. Somewhat bitter malty flavor with a hint of graininess. Not a great IPA. My bottle was 6.0%.

12 oz bottle. Aromas were lacking as well as the flavor. Bitter flavor, but I dont think it was hoppy bitterness. Nice looking bottle though.
