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.

Craftakt (130) - Hannover, Lower Saxony, GERMANY - OCT 17, 2017
Aroma deutliche Hopfennote mit tropischen Früchten und grasigen Noten. Antrunk erst fruchtig, leicht bitter. Dann deutlicher Hopfen mit Bitternoten, grasig floraler Noten und einer spürbaren Alkoholnote. Im Abgang trocken und bitter.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2017 Canette achetée chez Amstein - De couleur dorée translucide ave. une belle mousse blanche qui colle bien au verre - Au nez on part directement sur de la resine, des fruits, agrumes et fruits tropicaux, une bonne présence de malt, et une touche herbacée - En bouche on reste sur la même chose pas mal de résine, herbacé et malt les fruits se mettent plus en retrait - Corp moyen, amertume forte, carbonation correcte, soyeuse, final amère herbacé long - Typique american ipa, sans extravagance

Citrus, pine, resin, malt giving the idea of honey. Pours golden-amber with large head. In taste dry, intensely hoppy: citrusy, resiny, a bit of tropical fruit, with moderate grapefruity bitterness and crisp malty background. Medium body and carbonation, despite relatively high bitterness it's very drinkable. Tasty, looks like the reputation is well-earned.

Bitek (769) - Warszawa, POLAND - OCT 14, 2017
Owoce tropikalne, cytrusy, słodowość. Średnie ciało, półwytrawne. Średnie wysycenie, średnia do wysokiej goryczka, na szczęście dość krótka i niezalegająca.

mt_hall (211) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2017
Bottled. Amber colour with a slight haze and a very small, off-white head. Honey, yellow fruit, and a faint hint of pine. Very dry throughout. Very hoppy with pine-resin bitterness that's very strong on the finish. Clean with a good balance of bitterness, acidity, and alcohol.

jjsint (3428) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2017
Can from Marks and Spencer. Drunk at home. Light gold, a bit hazy with a large but quickly dissipating white head. Lots of lacing left. Pine needles, mango lassi, ample resin and lemon balm in the sumptuous aroma. Initially sweet taste turns bitter quickly, although it tempers with repeated sips. Long finish with key lime and lots more pine in the aftertaste. Pretty good stuff.

Thebeerdude (33) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2017
330ml can. Pours a large head, liquid a cloudy amber colour. Aroma is strong citrus and taste is slightly sweet with a good bitterness and is well balanced. Good, long finish with a lingering bitterness.

Tolle Perligkeit, frisch aus der grünen Dose. Ordentlicher Schaum, da bricht nix weg. In der Nase cremig feine Mango. Ebenso im Trunk, mittig kommt etwas der Alkohol, dann holzig, bitter, süffig. Geiles Ding.

Dobra IPA w stylu West coast. Niezła piana drobnopecherzykowa. W smaku dużo chmielu, żywicy. Klasyk stylu.

Has a light aroma of citrus, floral and fresh brewed tea. Very hop forward blend, hard to pick out individual flavors on this one but its a nice balance and mix of citrus, pine and dark fruit, none stand out more than the other. Finishes off with a long dry, bitter finish that lingers for quite a while. Very tasty and one I've been wanting to try for a while now, glad I did.
