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.

BlueDevil0206 (122) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 3, 2005
Bomber. Pours a clear orange yellow color with a small white head that laces well. Aroma is of piney high alpha acid hops; floral and spicy with a definitely malt back bone. Flavor is upfront spicy and hoppy (grapefruit and spruce) and caramel sweet. Moderate ester profile to complement the hops and malt. Finishes dry and pleasantly bitter. Mouthfeel is fairly full and smooth with a perfect carbonation level. Great IPA.

This IPA got me into starting to enjoy IPAs since I was always so stuck on stouts. Im still a stoutman but Ive broadened my horizons thanks to this beer. Very floral and hoppy and awesome!

BrooHa (121) - New York, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Typical IPA nose of citrusy hops. Not overpowering but prominent enough that you know youve got an IPA in your hand. Some malt nose as well. I wish I could score the aroma higher but there just doesnt seem to be a lot going on in the ol nose. Amber to dark yellow with off-white head. Thick lacing. Visually appealing. Kinda makes you anxious to have that first sip. Medium mouthfeel and a bit sharp. Perfect for a IPA! Ultimately delicious! Finishes with a quick, bracing bitterness that doesnt last. Very drinkable and my favorite, everday IPA!
