A big, bold hop-forward west coast style IPA. The malt character is subdued to showcase a blend of Simcoe, Amarillo, and Centennial Hops creating a lingering dry finish with notes of pine, grapefruit, and apricot.

Bottle pour to shaker. Hazy brown-gold with a medium head. Citrus aroma. Nicely balanced hoppiness with something giving it an edginess...pine? straw? I bought a single to sample. Next trip to the store I will buy a 6-pack.

On tap, Pine and citrus aroma, taste is similar a little mild for a west coast IPA...

Moderate floral hop bitterness, with notes of citrus peel, grains, resin, lemon, pine and faint yeast. Felt a bit lighter than expected but works nicely.

On tap at Graydon’s Crossing. Nice fruity hop aroma, aromatic and light sweetness. Carbonic gaseousness. Peach and apricot. Pale golden clear with haze, topped with thin lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Nice IPA. Caramel, biscuit for sweetness, and hoppy notes with grapefruit and apricot. Big hoppy bitter after.

Surprisingly tasty IPA. Orange hops and grabs you and its very drinkable. Recent bottle from Champane Cellars.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2014 Cask (Dry-Hopped with Mosaic Hops & Lemon Zest): Thick & dense looking, fully opaque sunburst yellow body with a slightly foamy & bubbly, off-white film. Aroma is bomb.edu; dank, dripping tropical juice, guava, passion fruit, tangerines, loaded with hop oils, florals, & the lightest sugar cookie sweetness as the backbone from the malt. Tropical hoppy explosion. Taste is lightly herbal up front with some small hints of grass, green onion, & severe dankness from the hops. Huge tropical mid-palate leading into the finish; mango, passion fruit, orange, like biting into a fruit. Touch of dank green onion & wet grass in the finish with a touch of biscuit malt sweetness. Wonderfully smooth mouth feel from the cask. I’ve never been crazy about regular Buzz Saw but this stuff is worthy of praise.
