Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Musky on 01-10-2007

The generous addition of hops both during and at the end of the fermentation process (dry-hopping) gives our India Pale Ale its characteristic bitterness and piney citrus aroma and flavor. The medium body, crisp finish, and moderate alcohol and IBU levels makes this one of America’s most drinkable and best-selling IPAs.

On tap at AK's bar & grill in Fairview TX. Terrible pour from the girl working the bar. No head at all. Medium gold color and mostly clear. I thought about sending it back but just drank it. The smell had some hops to it. Taste was ok. Not as flavorful as some but but not bad. Had a little buttery taste. The more I drank the more I actually liked it. When faced with one of these vs. bud or miller there is no contest.

S - Sharp citrus. Grapefruit. Good hoppy aroma.

T - Grapefruit, lemon. Light malt backing.Nice bitterness lingering into the finish. Could use more malt.

Poured into a glass mug. Pours pale golden with an abundant, slowly dissipating white head. There are abundant tiny bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Some lacing is left on the side of the glass as the head dissipates. There are aromas of sweet malts and citrusy and piney hops. It's not a strong aroma, but it is a pleasing and inviting aroma. The taste follows the nose. There are sweet, bready malts accompanied by mild citrus and pine hop flavors. There's a mild bitter aftertaste, but this clears up relatively quickly. The body is medium with adequate carbonation. The finish is crisp and dry. The drinkability is high. Overall, this is a very good beer. While there are better IPAs on the market, this one is certainly worth a try if you're exploring the style.

A bottle left at my house after a poker game, so now it is mine and I'm drinking it. The beer is slightly hazy and yellow-orange colored, thin wispy head. The smell is hops, go figure, not too strong but nice anyway. The taste is good, hops bitterness but not enough lasting hops flavors, it felt kind of 1-dimensional in terms of hops component. Overall not bad, OK with dinner, but not interesting enough to drink by itself in the future.
