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.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, - JAN 13, 2003
<b>growler</b> Hop flowers and carmel malts in the nose. Nice creamy head that thinned out but sustained. Balanced earthy citrus and creamy carmel malts. Resiny and smooth. Nutty bitter hoppy finish with biscuty malts.

Aroma of fruits, citrus and hints of grass and grains. Golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium + bitter. Medium body with a average carbonation. Dry and bitter finish. Overall an OK IPA, but a bit on the boring side.

M: Medium body with crisp carbonation and wet resinous finish. O: Pretty good all around IPA.

Macieg (63) - Lipno/Wloclawek, POLAND - FEB 13, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2018 Lekko zmetnione, trwała piana. Aromat słaby, trochę żywicy i owoców, zboże. W smaku fajniej, dość sporo owoców i iglaków, półwytrawne. Goryczka średnio niska jak na IPA, dość krótka, owocowo pestkowa. Nie czuć tego 7% alko. Trochę przereklamowane

aussiealchemist (68) - Berwick Victoria, AUSTRALIA - FEB 6, 2018
12 oz bottle at Il Birrificio Camberwell Vic. Pours hazy apricot with small white head. Aroma is big, tropical fruits with a little citrus. Flavour is dominated by bitter hop hit. The solid malt backbone provides plenty of support for the hops. Taste is strongly bitter with reasonable sweetness underneath. Palate is thick with a slightly creamy or oily mouthfeel. Lasting residual bitterness on the front and mid palate. Overall a very good big IPA. Not easy to find in Australia but worth the hunt.

Fishnmusicn (6) - Norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2018 does not count
Orange brass in color, medium carbonation. Too much pine and lingering bitterness for me, the bitter aftertaste will stay with you a while. Decent carbonation and retention with the lacing. Not enough smoothness and fruitiness, straight pine and bitter. While I will call it a very good IPA it's just not one I come back to very often. I did today and so the review. Still very good if you're a fan.
