Pegasus IPAPegasus IPA

Brewed by:
Argus Brewery
Illinois, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A prominent to intense hop aroma with a citrusy, floral and/or fruity character derived from American hops. Color ranges from medium gold to medium reddish copper. Medium-high to very high hop bitterness, although the malt backbone will support the strong hop character and provide the best balance. A decidedly hoppy and bitter, moderately strong india pale ale.

I had previously stated that Southern Tier IPA was my favorite as far as India pale ales are concered, but I stand corrected.

I was turned to this particular brewing company late last year at a beer and wine convention here in Illinois, and this beer stood out against many competitors.

Pegasus IPA is the best and smoothest IPA that Iv'e ever had.

If your looking for a smooth India Pale Ale without all of the bitterness and bite, look no further.

This beer is awesome, and is my personal favorite.

A big thumbs up and kudos to Argus Brewers out of Chi-town for making the best IPA Iv'e ever had.

Also, this is one of the rare beers Iv'e had that actually comes very close to tasting as good in a bottle that it does on tap.

The mouthful effect loses a bit vs tap to bottle, but otherwise, the taste is right there.
