Thomas Creek: Class Five IPA
This beer's name should be pronounced; "I. P. AHHH," and the pitch of your voice should rise an octave to pronounce the letter "A." The first sip is screaming with hops, then it settles to a more moderately measurable pallet. Subsequent sips are a more balanced blend of fruit and malt influences. The hops never vanish, but after the initial introduction, they do not over power the taste buds.
Class Five IPA is a definite example of the fact that IPA is now an American beer style too.
