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.

joeleaux (6) - Houma, Louisiana, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Seriously, one of the best IPAs i have ever had the pleasure of quaffing. Pours a beautiful orange/gold, honey and the fragrance of pine greets your nose by the time the bottle cap hits the counter. Velvety smooth, with medium carbonation. The taste of pine, citrus, a hint of sweet maltiness that gives way to a gentle heat on the finish. Utterly mind blowing.

meccahh69lol (41) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - FEB 20, 2017
This is a very good beer. A lovely orange hazy color, with an aroma of hops and citrus. Flavorful and light and complex (some light bitterness and tang), yet refreshing at the same time. A modern classic.

Can from beer52 beer club. Bold yet not overpowering. The hops are strong and you can taste a gentle citrus undertone. Very enjoyable, dangerously so considering the Abv!

micia600 (114) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 17, 2017
Piwo barwy złotej, opalizujące. Piana średnio obfita, sycząca, szybko redukuje się do cienkiego krążka. W aromacie karmel, cytrusy i lekka alkoholowa nuta. W smaku przyjemnie, dosyć wytrawnie, kwiatowo od chmielu. Wysycenie wysokie, goryczka średnia. Niestety piwo jest już pł roku po puszkowaniu i mimo, że ma jeszcze 3 miesiące ważności czuć, że ten chmiel nie gra już tak świetnie jak powinien.

devoted4hops (11) - POLAND - FEB 16, 2017
Can from brewery in Berlin. Aroma not as intensive as I would expected. Its citrusy with piny hints. Noticeable malt profile . Taste is a liitle bit too heavy with too much of malty character. Nice, fruity, bitterness. In overall its a good beer but too heavy bodied and with too much maltiness.

Wendigo (305) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 14, 2017
0.33l can. Hopy aroma, light malty notes, pine, light resin, light citruses. Almost clear golden color, white head. Hopy taste, pine, light floral notes, medium bitter. Medium to full body, oily texture, soft carbonation and dry bitter finish. Easy drinking, alcohol is hidden, well balanced. Very good.

radassace (137) - SCOTLAND - FEB 13, 2017
330ml can. Pours a deep amber with a small white head. Nose is caramel, bread and pine resin, bit of citrus too. Medium mouth feel and lightly carbonated. Sweet malts of the taste, leading into a very bitter pine resin, lemon peel, grapefruit peel finish. I get a touch of an alcohol kick with this one, but its a pleasant one. Really good stuff, still refreshing enough despite the 6.9 %.
