BEER INFO

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.90%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The IPA That Launched Generations of Hop Fanatics
First Release: August 1997

By definition, an India pale ale is hoppier and higher in alcohol than its little brother, pale ale—and we deliver in spades. Now one of the most well-respected and best-selling IPAs in the country, this golden beauty explodes with citrusy, piney hop flavors and aromas, all perfectly balanced by a subtle malt character. This crisp, extra hoppy brew is hugely refreshing on a hot day, but will always deliver no matter when you choose to drink it.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Clear amber with a white head.

Smell: Moderate piney hops, some pine and some other smells that blend together well enough I can't pick them out.

Taste: Bitter piney hops up front - pretty strong for a standard IPA. The dry malt backbone is substantial enough to give some relief. Ends with a mild lingering hoppy aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation and good thickness. Crisp but still thick enough to feel hearty.

Overall: Solid IPA. This is one that I enjoy even past the best by date - the nose fades, but the underlying taste is still good.

A: Yellow-golden and very clear. White head and some lacing on the glass.

S: Floral bouquet and massive hops.

T: Awesome: Grapefruit and citrus, lots of fresh fresh fresh pine, floral tones, and a crisp bite. I love how clean yet hoppy this is.

M: Medium and crisp. Oily from the hops. Just lovely...

O: A great IPA. This is definitely one of the top of the style that I've had.
