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.

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.

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 (10452) - 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.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 7, 2005
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.

sweetnlow (19) - Hudson, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 7, 2005
A strong floral taste and aroma, not too hoppy. A sort of Gewurztraminer beer. Very attractive color. $4.50 for 22 oz means its not an everyday brew for me, but I would serve it to guests.

RichardGretton (4739) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2005
Bottle. Golden beer with a grassy and slightly vinous aroma, and a dry, vinous flavour with a short dry finish. Overall a nice beer.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2005
Pale orange, thick white head. Aggressive hop aroma with a little nuttyness. Fresh, citric, flowery flavour with some notes of grapefruit and lemon. Somewhat sweet palate. Has a little warming alco-feeling. Decent, lingering bitterness in finish. Excellent.

pbjclimber (150) - Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2005
Poured a golden color with a small off white head. The aroma was a floral one with grapefruit present. The taste was very hoppy, but well done with a grapefruit hue and a slightly bitter after taste when compared to the rest of the beer. This is a good beer, but I have had better.
