Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Hop Ride India Pale Ale is medium bodied and aggressively hopped using a technique called 'dry-hopping' which adds a nice delicate citrus aroma. Combine that with Magnum & Summit hops to kick up the bitterness, and Cascade hops for a floral boquet. You get a well balanced and very drinkable American IPA. We live in Las Vegas and enjoy the areas beyond the reach of the neon. Bootleg Canyon MTB Park is one of those places. Be Warned, the rattlers have just as much bite as this ale. If you want to ride there, its going to be a "hop ride."

This is a good, solid IPA.

Dark gold with smallish off-white head, steadily shrinking to foamy ring and wisps.

Aroma is resin, grass, hints of raisiny malt.

Aroma is pine resin, hints of grapefruit and grass,citurs rinds, raisiny sweetness with hop bitterness. It's more bitter at finish but pretty balanced, a lot like a lower grade interpretation of Russian River Blind Pig character.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet brown sugar and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is quite sweet, but has solid citrus forward hop qualities all around.

Serving type: bottle.

16oz On-Tap @ Ace's & Ales Tenaya 5/12/14

A – Looks good, although quite pale for the style, could have been the poor lighting inside, but this looked quite yellow and thin. Head was nice enough, bright white, left behind nice lacing with each gulp.

S – Smelled quite refreshing after a long day at the nearby golf course. Basic hop notes here, citrus, pine, lemon. Nothing remarkable, but solid nonetheless.

T – One word: approachable. Very straightforward IPA goodness here, pine, lemon, nice and crisp. Not one flavor dominates this one. Nice balance, easy drinker.

M – Carbonation level is spot on, medium-high carbonation level makes this one very refreshing. Medium ABV is hidden quite well.

O – Solid easy going IPA here. Would I ever seek it out? No. Will I order it again if I see it? Yes.

On tap at Pub 1842 inside MGM Grand Las Vegas

Bright amber clear with a light head served in a pilsner flute.
Great pine hoppy scent and smooth mouthfeel.

Not usually a huge fan of dry hopped ales but this one was an example I really enjoyed.

Started off with a really bitter after taste that improved as the ale warmed in my glass.
