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.

Thanks to mar for this one...WOW! Amazing. Rich gold color with a mostly white head. Aromas are full and delicious: citrus, pine and some malt. This beer is so well balanced...not overly malty on the finish but just so delicious and perfect. GREAT BEER!

hopscotch (10708) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 5, 2002
Better than I remembered it. Spicey, malty, very, very hoppy. A terrific Left Coast IPA. HopHeads, gotta get you a bottle. Thanks to herbjones for the refresher. This beer rocks. The color of molten Gold. The aroma is very organic, very floral. The flavor is very spicy and floral with hops galore. This hophead delight has a dry, crisp, bitter finish. An excellent IPA. They should require a liscense in order to drink this beer. If youre not a hophead, you need not apply.

adnielsen (10538) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 20, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2011 Bottle @ Old Chicago. Mildly hazy, slightly burnt orange appearance with a frothy off white head. Fairly piney hoppy nose with a bit of citrus and light malts. Piney hops hit mildly in the start and make a much more definite and bitter impression on the finish. Some notes of citrus in the flavor that is a touch darker in malts than many other IPAs. Bitter piney hoppy flavor lingers on the back of the tongue.

slowrunner77 (10464) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 21, 2014
"as far as the regular (ie-not imperial) IPAs go, this is right up there as one of the best. Hoppier (slightly) than Marins, with a slightly thinner but slicker mouthfeel. Aroma is near perfect, and its cheaper than Marin, which only comes in 22s."

Bottle. Poured amber with a white head that laced nicely. Aroma was a nice combination of grapefruit and earthy notes. The flavor had the same notes with the earthy notes taking more of a dominate position.
