COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle, can, and keg: Filtered
Launched: August 1997
Hops: Magnum, Chinook & Centennial
By definition, an India Pale Ale is hoppier and higher in alcohol than its little brother, pale ale-and we deliver in spades. Now one of the most well respected and best-selling IPAs in the country, this golden beauty explodes with citrusy flavor and hop aromas, all perfectly balanced by a subtle malt character. This crisp, extra hoppy brew is hugely refreshing on a hot day, but will always deliver no matter when you choose to drink it.

Theis (15150) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2007
Bottle at Akkurat - shared with Mette. Clear golden - white head. Grassy, dryness, light piney, light sweetness, light citrus, a rather simpel IPA -> simpel grassy hopped. OK - but it needs some complexity.

My IPA. Goes well with anything anytime. Nice balanced aroma and taste. Basic great IPA with a lot of hops but has complex balance with some sweet malts. A little dry pine and citrus flavors shine through.

Feinschmecker (202) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 2, 2007
Bottle. Light orange and slightly cloudy with full floral aroma and a hint of malts. The flavor is what you expect, but surprisingly smooth with a faint bitter aftertaste. The malty profile is also great. The flavor in addition is a tad oily and the above average ABV is noticeable. This is a great IPA with or without food, because the flavor does not beat you over the head.

brigg (720) - New York, USA - SEP 30, 2007
(bottle) Hazy straw colored body, big white head. A sweet, hoppy and wonderfully floral aroma. Flavor is hoppy but very smooth all the way with just a little bitter bite on the finish. Also sweet. Medium bodied but thick mouthfeel.

Good beer for IPA lovers. Definetly above baseline. Great aroma, sweet and hoppy. Flavor didn’t have as much kick as the aroma. Wish it did, but good beer overall.

adrenalinenova (3) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 26, 2007 does not count
I love this IPA. The pour is smooth and creates a nice 2 inches of white head that dissolve into belgian lace before I get through my second sip. The aromas are beautiful, I recommend using a brandy sniffer to capture the grapefruit, lemon, pine resin, and sage. The initial taste is a mix of the aromas and the mid-taste. The mid-taste is a herbal fruity bitterness that overpowers any malt sweetness, and slowly fades into a tangy bitter aftertaste.
