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.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2013 Bottle .Pours a golden orange yellow with off white head with medium lacing. Aroma is moderate to heavy floral, grass, citrus, skunky, moderate caramel. Taste is light sweetness, very bitter. medium body, oily feel, average carbonation, long bitter finish. As good as an IPA can get.

Pours a clear golden amber from the bottle, aroma is a balance of hops with a whiff of maltiness, and the balance follows through on the flavor. Crisp, delicious IPA that for all its bitterness, is not overpowering in bitterness but instead the perfect offset to the malt. This would be the beer to give someone who was turned off on IPAs due to an overhopped example, Probably my favorite IPA of those that are widely available.

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.
