Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Vancer on 09-20-2009

Our American IPA gets its bold hop flavor from 100% American hops and its deep gold and full body from pale and crystal malted barley. A blend of Amarillo, Centennial and Simcoe hop varietals imparts AIPA with bitterness and prominent aromas of citrus and fruit. Our brewers select these hops on an annual pilgrimage to the hop farms of Pacific Northwest.

IPAs (India Pale Ales) were first brewed in England during the late 1700s for export overseas to British soldiers in India. To keep their beer from spoiling during the long voyage, English brewers fortified their traditional pale ale recipes with natural preservatives: more malted barley, for a higher alcohol content, and more hops. In recent decades, with growing appreciation for highly hopped beers, American craft brewers have revived the style, embraced it, and incorporated new hop varieties. Our Special Release IPAs further those traditions and showcase the distinctions of hops from different hemispheres.

Crisp and clean, not as hoppy as expected though that may be due to the American Hops of which I am unaccustomed. Very much enjoyed it. Love the box which, as a collector of six-pack sides, is why I purchased it.

Good hop aroma though not as strong as hoped for.

Enjoyed poured aggressively into a pint glass.

Label is updated from that which is above, now covered w/ hops.:-)

(Edit to mention this is now labeled as an APA.)

A - Poured a light honey color. Crystal clear and 1 finger off slightly offwhite head. Excellent retention.

S - A very sweet floral smelling beer. Thre are hints of citrus in the background. Definately pick up some lemon smells. Not much maltiness to this beer. Its all hops!

T -Just like it smells. Very floral on the front with some pineyness to it. There are hints of citrus as well.

M - This is a great thick beer. One of the highest ratings I have given on Mouthfeel. It has a lot of body to it. You know you are drinking a big beer!

O - A very good IPA. Definately one for hop heads. I would have liked to see it a little more balanced with more malt presence. Still a great beer and one I will be picking up again
