COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle 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.

streve (105) - Maryland, USA - NOV 5, 2012
12oz bottle. Pour was a hazy orange with a finger of off-white head that took some time to disappear. The aroma is fantastic. Notes of apricot, grapefruit and tropical fruits. Mouth....where do I begin. Delicious! The fruitiness hits the palette right away with a mild hop bite. Grapefruit and apricot through to a somewhat dry finish. Good lacing. Very tasty.

Can 330 ml. Clear golden with medium head. Aroma of citrus and resin. Totally dry, medium and quite short bitterness, carbonation bit too high for me.

tfredvik (1794) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2016
Clear, pale amber body with large, creamy, eggnog head that reduces to an everlasting layer, excellent lacing. Sweet, surprisingly malty and strong aroma of caramel and a bit too overripe tropical fruits. Strong flavour of caramel, slightly overripe tropical fruits, grapefruit and bitter orange marmalade, with a floral and spicy background. Light sweet initial taste followed by a rather heavy bitter and long-lasting finish. Mid-bodied, dry, soft carbonation. A very nice one, but didnt feel as fresh as I had expected.
[35.5 cl can, enjoyed 5 months after bottling, from Vinmonopolet Aker Brygge, Oslo]

Can. Berlin. Nose is citrus, malt, slight dankness, lime, grapefruit. Taste follows, good malt body with grapefruit, dank, lime rind, tangerine, lemon, with a dry lemon grass finish. Looks beautiful in the glass with a pillowy head. A classic deeply drinkable modern IPA.

Dzoshu (149) - Warszawa, POLAND - NOV 25, 2016
Kolor: Złoty, klarowne. Piana: Średnio obfita, oblepia szkło, redukuje się do warstewki na powierzchni. Zapach: Owoce tropikalne, żywica, kwiaty, mokre zboże. Pachnie przyjemnie, wyraźnie ale zapach trochę mdławy, mało agresywny. Smak: Słodkie, rześkie. Mango, brzoskwinie, zboże. Goryczka pojawia się po dłuższej chwili ale z dużą intęsywnością, mimo to jest krtka i przyjemna. Wysycenie: Średnie w stronę wysokiego, OK. Opakowanie: Zgrabna, stylowa puszka, niedokładny skład. Uwagi: Warka 16.04.17 Mocno chmielowe, klasyczne, przyjemne. Dobry przykład stylu.

33cl can (by Stone Brewing Berlin). Hazy golden orange with big white head. Citrus, caramel and grapefruit in the aroma. Taste is lightly bitter with fruity notes. Overall, a bit of a deception. Nice but not remarkable.
