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: SEP 3, 2007 Beautiful copper color with white head, and aroma and flavor full of hops. A delight to drink.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2011 8/27/07.bad news...finally got this at work...copper color with a fluffy white head. very grassy piney aroma. flavor has some caramel and sweet malts to balance out the hops. the hops are definitely there but not over done as many west coast ipas tend to be. this beer is to be used as a tool with food rather than food itself...

double and triple dry hopped ... aka ’ipa with a shitload of hops’! = awesome on tap at papago 4.2+

Pours a brilliant copper with a small head. Very slight malty aroma - difficult to discern. Tastes of berries, very floral hops, but a well-combined taste, smooth and pleasant. Almost creamy body with decent carbonation. Lovely hoppy finish, great beer. Many thanks to G for the taste!

Cask-GBBF. Yellow with a small white head. Hoppy aroma with pine, grass and peach. Bitter and dry, with a long hoppy aftertaste.

12oz bottle. This is a great beer. Thick fluffy head. Smells great when you pour it--strong fresh hop aroma. Not quite Ruination strong, but it pretty much smells like a pile of hops. Tastes the same. Good fresh, bitter flavor. I’m more of an Imperial IPA person, but this is one of my favorite everyday beers.

Pours a hazy golden color with a small, white head. Sharp, crisp, piney hop aroma. Starts sweet, then malts are met by a big citrus body. Lemons and grapefruit dominate here. Finish is very bitter. Not bad.

What a wonderful IPA. Aroma of candied fruit, and excellent crisp palate. The flavor is exactly what an IPA should be - well rounded. Delicious.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - AUG 20, 2007
Pours a solid hazy golden colour with a white sticky head. Big hop floral aroma with sharp notes of orange peel. Lots of hop flavour, from start to finish. Starts with a light sweetness, with some citrus fruit notes in the middle, and big hop bitterness in the finish. All and all top f’n notch IPA.

me and my friends bought a six pack of this to be adventurous, i have not had anything better, but of coarse i am relatively new to the beer scene, the flavor was so perfectly balanced between medium bitterness and a sweetness that hits in the beginning, i loved every sip and this is now my friends favorite beer

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2008 12 oz. bottle. Golden pour with a strong delightful aroma almost matched by its taste. Surprisingly good for a year round brew. Wish I could find this at home.
