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.

This was an IPA. This was not a bad IPA. I would not seek out this IPA again but would drink it happily if it materialized in front of my facehole.

Never been a huge fan of Ipa's but this one was ok. I'd have it again. It came bottled. Poured in a cold glass. Good color and head retention. Decent flavor.

OK beer. Here goes:

L: Straw yellow with a small head that lingers. Mediocre for an IPA.

S: Citrus and grapefruit - not much complexity, really. Hops are clearly very simple, malt is OK.

T: Again, too simple. Taste largely dominated by grapefruit - very hard to detect anything else, IMO. Some citrus, though.

F: Nice carbonation, but somewhat light.

O: Ok beer. Probably won't have it again.

A lot of hate on these review threads for this, but I did not mind it. Not really hoppy for an IPA, that's for sure. Crisp mouthfeel with good carbonation. You could do worse but certainly can do better as well

I used to buy this when it was 1.99 at my local store. The price went up to about 3 bucks and I wish I remembered how much I dislike it, maybe the recipe changed but im just not digging the taste or the after-burn. Reminds me of drinking natty-ice at the softball field when i was younger
