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: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

gold. tan off-white head. good retention. clear good lacing

HOPS! crystal malt sweetness. big floral and citrus. oranges and lemon and grapefruit.

bitter. all the way through. lemon, lime, grapefruit. no malt flavor or sweetness. huge hop bitterness.

crisp. medium body.

on assault on the palate to be sure. definitely overpowers everything. even the hop flavor is eclipsed by the fierce bitterness (kind of to a fault).
