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.

Had on tap, it’s a glassful of pale gold ale with a small head. The mild aroma has some minor hoppy and citrusy notes. The laid-back taste surprised me because it did NOT come on strong. Medium mouthfeel somewhat watery with soft carbonation; not high on my list of crafty American IPAs.

W aromacie cytrusy, najbardziej czuć pomarańcze. W smaku fajne wytrawne ale orzeźwiające. Piwo nieziemsko pijalne. Lekko za duże wysycenie.Finisz pusty. Bardzo dobre

Aromat chmielowy, cytrusowy, grejprfutowy, ale nie jakoś wybitnie intensywny. Drobna piana, ale utrzymująca się do ostatniego łyka. Bardzo wytrawne, fajnie zaznaczona grejprfutowa goryczka, dobrze pijalne. Klasyka.

Can at Dusseldorf airport. Clear yellowish with white head. The aroma is piney with notes of tropical fruits and citrus. Bitter flavor with notes of citrusy hops, piney, some tropical fruits, "green". Slightly dry, medium-bodied.

On tap from Ryan's in St. Julians. Aroma is citrus, pine, and initial taste is fruity followed immediately with a bold bitterness which resonates. Very well balanced and excellent tasting. One of my favourite IPAs ever.

This IPA has a stunningly beautiful foaming. Aroma is citrus and spices. The taste is dominated by grapes, pine needles and spices like grass, coriander and basil. It's an extremely delicate IPA, where the hop bitterness is significant, but is not bitter than a level where I think everyone will be able to find positive things

12oz bottle. Pretty awesome that an IPA brewed in 1997 can still hold up in 2017. The hop bill is a little NW antiquated, but bitter and bold at the same time, more so than most IPAs these days. Filtered, which keeps it clean, because the hops and overall mouthfeel are pretty solid and intense. Pretty much a great IPA that has stood the test of time.

Juks (1056) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 8, 2017
330ml can. Pours slightly hazy amber, foamy white head, sticky lacing. Aroma is fruity, hoppy, bit resinous, malty and very well balanced. Very nice nose! Taste is bitter, juicy, tropical, resinous, lots of grapefruit, orange peel. Some herbal and grassy notes in aftertaste. Taste is bit more harsh than aroma, but still lovely. Medium + bodied, bit over average carbo. Really good example of pure breed IPA.
