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.

This guy's line summed it up: "It's not going to rock your world, but it's rock solid."

And actually, to me, that's part of the appeal of this beer. It's just a perfect go-to IPA. Quality flavor, but not too hoppy, and super drinkable. Great all year round.

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.
