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.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2010 A good IPA in the West Coast microbrew tradition. Good aromatics and crispness with a downplayed malt character. Restrained citrus and resin in the nose and taste gives way to clean bitterness in the finish.

Very nice floral aroma, nice medium orange color with normal white head. Plenty of hops in the palate and a very dry hoppy finish. Well balanced, but overall, not as hoppy as I expected, and not as good as a Sierra Nevada.

bottle. nice orange color with usual white head that lasts for awhile. full of hops, not overly bitter. well balanced beer that does not overwhelm in complexity of taste. good introductory i.p.a. for those discovering the micros.

ABUSEDGOAT (2693) - California, USA - MAR 23, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2016 Amber colored, moderate head, decent lacing and retention. Fruity citric aroma with some grapefruit. Pale malts, a touch of caramel, big fruity flavor with a moderate to high level of bitterness.

Tejas (1005) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 2, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2007 Love the puffy lasting white head. Maltier flavor than I was expecting, still well balanced though. Drinkable and smooth. Great every day drinker for the hop head. Certainly a respectable IPA but not worthy of a 99, imo.

Oh yeah.. this is one hoppy beer. Cool and refreshing the whole time. Not much of a bite though, which I love. The aftertaste is bittersweet, rich with hops. Its almost a perfumy taste at the very end. Very unusual, but good. Not something I would drink too much of in one sitting, a little too rich for my blood.

Bitter, bitter. Just past my bitter limit, I stress just. I knew going in that this should be expected. Good flavour and aroma. Still a very good beer. I would like to try this with different food to get a better sense of the beer.

BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 8, 2005
Nice golden color with a white head. Smells lively, fruity, of citrus zest, and hops galore. Taste is obviously hoppy, also spicy and a bit of grain on the bitter finish. Nice cripsy mouthfeel. Actually I didnt like this one too much, but its a well made beer, and lovers of the style should try it.

Poured a golden color with a small off white head. The aroma was a floral one with grapefruit present. The taste was very hoppy, but well done with a grapefruit hue and a slightly bitter after taste when compared to the rest of the beer. This is a good beer, but I have had better.
