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.

12oz bottle. Pours a bright, light orange/golden color with a generous foamy white head. Aroma is interesting and little different for an IPA. Floral hops but theres also almost a slight fruitiness to it as well. A little bit of pine too. Taste is very bitter and slightly hoppy with a nice spicy kick to it. Very interesting. Im impressed.

Coming from a fan of IPAs this is a wonderful and easy beer to drink. Kind of lacks that bitter hoppy bite that you would get from the Two Hearted Ale. but in exchange for that, its smoothness going down is wondeful. nice beer

This was a tremendous beer. The beer poured deep gold color wth a firm head. It has a hoppy note and a bit of a citrus zip keeping the bitternes clean!

Beautifully crafted beer. Full of citrus and pine aromas. Pours with a great golden color, this beer is one of my favorites.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2008 Hazy orange with a tight white head. Very woody, piny aroma. Massive hoppy character, mostly resinous and woody, slightly floral, but not very fruity at all. Pale biscuity malt takes a backseat. Very bitter finish. I like my IPAs with a little more fruit and a little more sweet malt character. Still very good though.

wow. thats a hoppy beer. served cold, pours a nice golden color with a tinge of orange. a relatively thin white/off-white head. huge hop aroma with some citrus flavor. taste is great and smooth, with that hop explosion unlike most IPAs ive had before. excellent overall.

One of my favorite beers. It turned me onto all IPAs and gave me to insight to how great beer can be.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2011 Bottle. Pours a hazy orange body with great white lacing that coats my glass. Aroma is bready, malty, citrus hop. Mouthfeel is medium and bready with notes of sweet malt, earth, bread, toast, and bitter citrus hop.

What a great beer. One of the best. It explodes out of the bottle and doesnt stop. Citrus, pine aroma and flavor. Try this one.
