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.

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.

A beautiful golden orange color with a small amount of head that laced until the end. Awesome crisp cirtusy hop aroma. Smooth and malty at first taste but finishes strong on the hops at the end. Best IPA Ive had.

Copper-red color, a cream colored head, a lasting lace work on the glass, great humor on the bottle, massive grapefruit-rind hops, aromatic esters, a medium-light bodied ale, rich flavor, nicely malted, slightly sweet toasty flavors, followed by a dry knockout perfect bitter finish.

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.

Not how I remembered it when I first tried it. The aroma is more piney than citrus, yeasty but less so than a Belgian hybrid Bold, both semi- sweetness and bitterness are way up there and consistent sip after sip. Surprisingly, pleasant butterscotch lingers briefly at the back of the throat then dissipates quickly. Viscosity is about of a 75% DPI. Unique, superb and I have overlooked and missed out on a beast of a beer searching for the latest and the greatest.. It wont happen again

This staple IPA hits the target with classic sweet aromas. Pouring a light amber with an oily head that glimmers and hangs to the glass when turned. Its mouth feel is smooth and astringent. The bittersweet is excellent. Good IPA

Poured on tap. Nice two-finger head, excellent lacing. Very hoppy and bitter. This should be a standard beer on anyones list.
