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.

Deep amber color. Small off-white head mostly diminishing. Aroma is strong hoppy aroma . I love an IPA. In this case this is one of the better varieties of an IPA. Strong hoppy, bitter taste but with substantial malt backbone. Full bodied. Love the palate

Bottle to a pint glass. Pours a rich golden color, with evident carbonation. Rich, thick head that sustains through the glass. Absolutely smooth, with a clean hoppy taste. Rich even finish. As good of an IPA as youll find.

A medium bodied beer, it has a deep golden color and a small head. Its distinguishing characteristic is the overwhelming hoppy taste. Hops so overbalance the malt flavors, that the malt taste is nearly lost. This is a beer for people who love very strong, aromatic hops.

Hoppy as any exmaple that is available on the market today. The overall strength of hops somewhat takes over the the other subtle flavors that show as it crosses the palate. Overall it is a definite "must try" for any fan of the style, but unbalanced overall.

When it comes to IPAs, it doesnt get much better than this. Citrus, lemony hop aroma mirrored with similar flavors. Not overpowering but enough to fulfill you. Spicy lingering finish. Medium boided with nice carbonation. Well done.

Beautiful rich golden color. Nice white head. nice hop aroma. Not sure I like the aftertaste but a very good IPA overall.

joekfsu (138) - Boardman, Ohio, USA - AUG 9, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours golden orange with a 2 cm iff white foamy head that is mostly diminishing. Aroma of hops: mostly sweet, a little piney and resins. Initial taste is citrusy sweet. Flavor balances out and becomes very dry on the aftertaste, which lasts for a long time. Light to moderate carbonation, hint of alcohol, light to medium body, and tons of lacing. Great beer, very drinkable.

jonnabrix (137) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2006
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.

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