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.

Very good india pale ale... very hoppy, which is to be expected, and finishes off incredibly well.

This pours nice and golden, white head with some lacing on the glass. Certainly looks like the perfect refreshing summer brew. Floral and piney hop aroma that comes through to give it most of its flavor. Crisp, and not overly bitter, very good.

Not as good as Arrogant Bastard, but pretty darn good nonetheless. Very hoppy, as I like it.

Reminds me of twohearted. Great single IPA. Got a case from FE pletchers in state college PA. Very nice golden color some orange. Nose is cut grass some malt. Flavors of light citrus, medium hops. Very well rounded and I would say somewhat perfected IPA. Cheers!

On tap @ The Rake, London. Pours golden with moderate head. Lots of citric hops and a balanced sweetness from the malts. Very drinkable and refreshing. Better on tap than on bottle.

Outstanding. I bought this case after people kept talking about it at work, and even though Ive had one bottle before, I dont remember it being this good. Superbly clear, hops on the nose from a mile away. Light/medium body with a caramel/floral palate. A perfect spring/summer offering to take in after mowing the lawn. This case will not last long and it wont be the last one I buy.

Very sweet and sour aroma, dominated by citrus. Taste very similar to grapefruit...sweet and bitter. Not as smooth as I would prefer, but not bad.

The hazy peach to orange color is very clear through filtration I guess. Fabulous head retention. The nose is big and complex: lots of pine, complimented by orange sherbet, caramel malts, and pepper. It starts out with assertive grapefruity hops, but as this warms up floral and hops come through alone with silky smooth sweet malts.The alcohol is slightly noticeable, but it doesnt interfere with the drinkability. This is pretty awesome.
