Notes & Commercial Description:

"Drake's flagship beer! A "West Coast" interpretation of an India Pale Ale. Copper-colored from additions of light Crystal malt, and body-building Caramalt, carry the malt weight of this hop bomb. The hoppy aromas of pine and grapefruit are delivered from the abundant Columbus and Cascade hops."

(Bottle 12oz, revisited) golden peachy color, toasted malt flavor, bitter enough but nothing earthy or floral, still good though

I'm too jaded to offer an objective review of any one of Drake's beers. Growing up in San Leandro, Drake's was one of my first true loves. But their IPA has a fantastic bite, full flavor and non filling feel. Gimme more, any day of the week.
