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.

Gave the draught version a 4.55. This was from a fresh bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a beautiful light copper, clear with a one finger white head. Foam fizzles away immediately but leaves a great lacing.

S: Strong. Primarily hop aromas - a grassy combination of floral and citrus.

T: Tastes like it smells, with a very subtle malt backbone. Perhaps not quite up to par with the on tap version, but excellent for a bottled beer. Bitterness lingers, as does the alcohol.

M: A tad overcarbonated for my taste, and thus a bit thinner than I might like.

O: A great beer; one of my favorite IPAs. In comparing to draught from notes, this one holds its own but is considerably better on tap.
