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.

jeremyh70 (1083) - Missouri, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Pours a clear light golden color with a finger of white head and nice lacing. Aroma of citrus and pine predominately but you can detect some sweet molasses also. Bitterness from the hops and carbonation hit the tongue and taste buds first followed by some orange flavor and some sweetness from the malt . Finishes with a briny bitterness that builds as you drink and a slight pepperiness. Prickly mouthfeel from the carbonation that finishes dry. A bit too bitter for me to drink regularly but a good beer overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lele (468) - Padova, ITALY - JAN 15, 2017
ASPETTO: biondo oro, lieviti in sospensione. Schiuma bianca, fine, abbastanza abbondante e decisamente persistente. AROMA: soprattutto frutta tropicale ed erbaceo, intenso e gradevole. GUSTO: leggera scorza di pane, ma soprattutto molto fruttata (frutta tropicale, come mango e papaya) e molto luppolata, di un amaro intenso e quasi pungente, ma senza mai esagerare. IPA davvero ben fatta!

Juggernaut84 (242) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2017
Sehr gutes IPA nahezu alles ist stilecht.goldenes Bier, zwei Finger Schaumkrone, die auch gut im Glas steht. Fruchtige Nase, das Mundgefhl ist etwas hart, so wie auch der Bittereindruck etwas kratzig ist. Aber das ist meckern auf sehr hohen Niveau.

Once Ive let a full carton of 24 cans in the fridge of my parents house. 15 days after, Ive just found 4 cans. My father said - It is really good beer that one... Until that day he only used to drink industrial beer, from then I have to keep his fridge well assorted.

Canned from Biernavigatie.nl. Hazy golden colored, tiny particles floating around, medium lasting head. Powerful hoppy nose, fruity, resin. Flavor is dominated by hop bitterness, grapefruit, some malts. Pretty aggressive, but pretty solid.
