Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: pbrian on 03-29-2001

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.

Bottle > Pint Glass
A - Pours a nice gold color, thin layer of fizzy head, minor lacing.
S - Weird crackery smell, pepper, some hidden pine, and just a really off skunky smell.
T - Taste follows the smell, there's a big time crackery flavor here, its like im eating saltine's people! You definitely get that odd skunk kinda flavor, dont know what thats about. This is a lame flavor for an IPA.
M - So little bitterness for an IPA, bad metallic aftertaste.
O - This is just flat out bad. Horrible example of an IPA, the smell is almost unbearable, and the taste doesnt save it at all.

appearance - poured a good-sized head, and leaves lacing on the glass. I really like the color personally i think this nice golden color looks really nice.

smell - the smell is not very hoppy, more like a mix of citrus and bready.

taste - for an ipa this is pretty mild, not near as many hops as most ipa's. the first time i tried it i was really suprised cuz im a big fan of the normal ipa's. but, even tho its not as hoppy as i expected, i still think its pretty tasty. It has citrus, pine, and some hops, and some grainy flavor, just kindof mild for an ipa as far as the hops and pine go.

mouthfeel - has a nice comfortable mouthfeel, medium carbonation, crisp and nice, altho not as frothy as some better ipa's.

like others have said this would be good for someone whos not used to ipa's, and its definitely a sub-par ipa, but for what it is I still think its tasty and I enjoy it.
