During a fierce storm on his voyage across the ocean, William Rahr could be heard yelling from the tall masted ship: "Roll on old sea! And when you are done, when the storm clouds have destroyed themselves, we will still be standing and drinking!" Today, we have created the ultimate ale for a voyage such as this: A German-Style IPA - a traditional India Pale Ale with German Influence. Our German-Style IPA is brewed with a blend of all German malts, hops, and yeast. It has a rich maltiness with both floral and spicy hop characteristics. So get ready and hang on - Stormcloud will see you through your roughest seas and straight on to smooth sailing. Editors Note: This beer was reconfigured in 2009 with new hops and yeast.

Definitely not the west coast IPA I was in the mood for, but very clean malty sweetness with apparent hop character.

omhper (24781) - Tyres, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2017
Keg at DFW Airport. Clear deep golden, mid sized head. Fruity nose with a floral touch. Mid sweet with medium body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Hay and citrus, strange peppery finish.

rosenbergh (11440) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 20, 2016
12 oz bottle. (Collins Midtown Liquor) Tulsa, OK. Slightly cloudy golden color with a small bubbly white head. Sugary sweetness, play dough, almond and plastic in the aroma. Harsh hops, plastic, bitterness and pavement in the flavor. How old is this? Nobody knows... No freshness info. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jyrsa (792) - - MAR 28, 2016
Bottle at Amex lounge DFW. Pours hazy amber with medium head. A weak nose of raisin and grape. Sudden, crisply bitter with malt and pine. Slightly watery palate and a long bitter finish. A bit of an odd bird with the maltiness but worth a try.

SG111 (1671) - New York, USA - MAR 23, 2016
Tap at the source. Pours hazy murky cuprous. Off white head. Aroma is caramel malt, figs, citrus, orange, pine. Flavor is English malt, citrus. True to the English ipa style.

Evolutionary (495) - Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2016
Tap at pizza vino in Dallas airport. Pour amber and head lasts for days. Smooth for style and sweetness covers hop bite and floral notes. A bit too sweet really. Ok but nothing to seek out. Wouldn't turn it down though.

hayduke (5171) - Eureka, California, USA - FEB 9, 2016
Sampled at GABF 2015, In the tasting glass orange with some brown highlights. Nose of fruit and floral hops. Medium maybe body. Flavor is caramel malts, some citrus and floral hops, and some fruit Moderately bitter finish. Seems clearly a English IPA rather than a west coast one we see so much these days. Very nice drinking.

Godzilla_7370 (8) - - JAN 10, 2016 does not count
On draft. I like the color and head. Hop flavor is just ok. Lots and lots of malt up front. Its not as bitter as a west coast ipa but it still has decent hop bitterness. Its an ok IPA that I wouldnt go out of my way to buy. If thats all the IPA the bar has then it is good enough to drink more than one.

BVery (10201) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle. Hazy Amber orange pour with a white soapy head. Sweet earthy malts with a hint of spice. Too malty for my tastes.

Braudog (6630) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Draft at DFW. Hazy copper, firm pillowtop. Starts malt-forward, not unlike a Festbier. Then theres the slightest of American hoppy twists. (#6060, 11/13/2015)
