COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2006 This beer pours with a creamy white head with plenty of lacing. Lots of hops dominate the smell and taste of this magnificent beer. Easily the best easily available IPA.

clear amber witha fluffy white head. aroma is hoppy. tastes bitter with lots of hops, but slight sweetness which isnt off-putting at all. bitter finish lingers. quite enjoyable.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2009 this is a pretty solid IPA. anyway it was an excellent bitterness to it, and a nice hops aroma, perhaps a bit of caramel. Awesome stuff.

jimhilt (2597) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 15, 2005
Pours a white, two finger-head that vanishes slowly leaving a good lace. Clear light amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is a strong hop. Starts with hops, somewhere there are malts - there is a trace of sweetness but the hops dominate, bitter finish that lingers. $2.30 for a 12oz bottle from Julios Liquors Westborough, Ma.

PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - NOV 8, 2005
Poured light amber, nose is all floral hops, very pleasant aroma. Flavor was more floral hops, the malts I thought were nicely blended. This was very good and the gargoyle on the bottle is pretty neat.

leaparsons (10403) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2005
Bottle. Hazy orange/gold with a large head. Aromas are caramel, pine and spices, quite sweet and surprisingly floral - also, alcohol. Flavours are caramel malts with pepper and spices, followed by bitter hops. Lots of pepper on the finish. Very good.

A very enjoyable IPA, with a noticeable bitter quality. Golden and cloudy in color. A very refreshing beer to be enjoyed with steaks or on a hot summer day.
