Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 12-02-2001

Standing firmly on the east coast end of American IPAs, our India Pale Ale emphasizes balance. An insistent malt character from traditional floor-malted English barley harmonizes with a generous amount of Chinook and Amarillo hops. Fruity and aromatic, our IPA is perfectly balanced.

Poured into a standard pint glass. Clear golden/bronze color. Less than a finger of head that disappears and has some light lacing. Smells hoppy and almost a little soapy. Taste is Bol and hoppy. A little sour but in a good way. Some grapefruit rind and maybe a little coriander. Dry after taste but very hoppy finish, almost too hoppy. The after taste is a bit too assertive. Medium mouthfeel, good carbonation. Solid beer, doesn't move the needle too much though.

This was served to me on tap in a standard pint glass. Poured a very dark copper with nearly no head and minimal lacing. faint hops aroma with s gentle, mildly hoppy taste. Mouthfeel was adequate, and that's overall what I consider this IPA to be: an adequate, drinkable beer, about on par with Sam Adams Rebel.
