COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle, can, 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.

Pours a very hazy amber color. Beer has a mild hoppy taste to it, also has a very well balanced malty aftertaste to it. The hops in this brew have great flavor, with grassy, pine undertones. Also has hints of citrus in it also. Very good!!

Pours a light golden amber with a medium head. No lacing. Tastes of citrus. Goes down pretty smooth since it is so well balanced. Many can be enjoyed.

This is by far the best IPA I’ve tried. The hop flavor is big and bold. The scent alone keeps me sippin’ it! I’m not a huge IPA fan, but I will buy this beer again.

Light copper color, fluffy white head that lasts, nice lacing. Aromatics are very malty... almost worty with a floral citrus finish. Flavor is extremely well balanced between the hops and the malt. The bittering hops are up front and assertive but moves into a very hoppy flavor with a huge malt backbone, finishes slightly sweet. The mouthfeel is pleasant, medium and slightly dry. Very drinkable, the alcohol is a bit on the high end for a session beer... but thats okay, I enjoy it thoroughly.

My favorite all purpose ipa, and I use it as a measuring stick for everything else. Pine, grapefruit, sublte floral notes, plus a creamy mouthfeel that finishes with a crisp bite. Hellz to the yea

Kolor: Złocisty, piwo jest idealnie klarowne. Piana: Obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, trwała, pozostawia ładny lacing. Aromat: Głównie owoców tropikalnych, po zabełtaniu wyłazi lekki aldehyd octowy, z tyłu pałętają się jakieś cytrusy. Aromat jest OK. Smak: Goryczka średnia, ale niestety zalegająca. W smaku aldehydu octowego jest dużo więcej niż w aromacie - zdecydowanie za dużo. Przykrywa wszystkie te owoce. Alkohol wyczuwalny tylko jako grzanie w przełyk. Niestety słabo. Wysycenie: Średnie, idealne. Opakowanie: Ładna etykieta ale minus za brak informacji o składzie. Uwagi: Co najwyżej średnie IPA. Goryczka zalegająca, a ilość aldehydu octowego nie do zaakceptowania. Nie ratuje tego przyzwoity aromat i ładny wygląd.

Full of fresh citrus in the nose from the hops. Nice white head. One of the best American IPA i tasted.

One of the better IPA’s out there. Golden color with minimal head. Lots of hops and pine in the aroma and taste.
