COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In honor of our friend and mascot, Wylie the fish, we are hooking you up with an aggressively hopped India Pale, the staple for any fishing trip. This beer is a hop lover’s dream. Andrew Maxwell put over 1.5 decades of recipe development into this India Pale Ale, creating the fourth dimension of flavor. Combining four varieties of hops produces a unique beer that has an aggressive hop flavor, bite and aroma without denying the presence of malt which I.P.A.s often lack.

This is a great session IPA, brings a nice malt flavor with a touch caramel and a bitter hops that is not overpowering nor too potent, for a casual drinker ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours out a somewhat clear coppery color with a decent off white head. Aroma is of citrus fruit, and floral hops, light sweet malty notes. Taste drops off a bit, some citrus rinds, light floral notes, sweet grains come through more predominantly than the hops in the taste.

Decent IPA. Nothing real special just an all around good beer. Well balanced with a dry finish.

Caramel colored with an off white cover. Aroma is some toasted malt, herbal hops. Taste is pretty much the same, nothing too mind-blowing but it was solid enough that I had a second.

italianjohn (2933) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Pale golden orange pour, thin soapy white head and thin striped lacing ... aroma of grassy, light citrusy hops and light caramel malts .... taste is of grassy, light citrusy and light floral/piney hops, caramel malts .... backbone is malty and of dry bitter hops ..... finish is dry and bitter with a lingering bitter hoppy bite .... british/east coast ipa ... sessionable and ok, but 1.5 decades spent developing this is a bit disappointing

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2011
Bottle from thirdeye11. Dark orange pour with a white head. Aroma is a little malt, nutty, and soft. Taste is old veggies, malt, almonds, astringent, and roasted.

Bottle. So this is the first beer I have ever poured that was all head. In disbelief, I stood back slightly and looked at the glass for any signs of an orangish liquid at the bottom... not a millimeter to be found! Aromas are OK, but pedestrian. A bit of funk (was this one infected?) with some grainy malts and light hops. Flavor was similar and it just tasted like and IPA that rode around in the back of the truck for the summer. Malt with a little bit of hops and a slightly skunky old edge to it. I’ll try this again, but I’m a little saddened that this isn’t the new Holy Grail of IPA’s.

malrubius (2655) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - APR 27, 2014
Can from Heinens. Caramel colored with lasting head and lace. Spicy hop aroma with some pine. Some mild toasty malts and some fruity malts with a lasting bitter rindy hop finish. One of those American/English hybrids. Pretty good. Maybe ciould have been fresher, but I couldn’t see a date code.

TXBadger (2619) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2015
Pours an orange golden color with off-white head. Citrus and malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Not an overly complex IPA, with a balanced malt bill on the backbone, more than I like in an IPA. No bite at the end.
