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.

Recently rediscovered this very widely available classic. Definitely a little bit of an acquired appreciation with this one. Clean, original and dare I say dank. Gosh darn good craft brew, and at 6.9 percent I can actually enjoy more than one. Way better than ruination imo.

12 oz. bottle poured into a wine glass, how fancy! (I didn't have any of my beer glassware available to me.)

A- Somewhere between gold and brass. Half inch, foamy white head. Great lacing.

S- Sweet, fruity bread balanced with citrus, earth, and pine.

T- Pine is the prominent hop flavor in this one. Some citrus, and still a solid backbone of bready malt.

M- Medium body, carbonation is fine, and a very dry finish.

O- Delicious. This one is very well balanced, considering the roar of the hops in there. It's a classic.
