Bold and bitter - aggressively hopped. An ideal mixture of four hops creates a distinguishing spicy aroma and long, hoppy finish.

Bready malt taste. Hop bitterness is mild - shows up after several seconds. Hop aroma is muted as is the hop flavor. Very bland - canít believe itís an IPA. Not a fan.

PigMine (42) - San Angelo, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2015
The best part of this brew is the look. It has a nice solution of small, suspended particulate, showing a pretty, orange color. The aroma and taste are a bit similar to a watered-down Sierra Nevada pale ale. Itís not the worst IPA, and better than it has been given credit for, but it is still a third party IPA and kind of defies the craft brew tradition of small-scale, owner/brewed beer. Even though it is a good looking and decently drinkable beer, I would not buy this again, especially after discovering it is a contract brew.

Bottle courtesy of Blipp at Maxís. Thanks a lot for this garbage, man. Pours a decent golden body with soft white lacing - no indication of the palate brutality about to ensue. Aroma begins to suggest a putrid fruit flavor mixed with a strange sour/spoiled fruity character; some spice and grain as well - is that the hop profile? Mouthfeel confirms what the nose suggests - awful weird fake fruit, cleaner, chemical spicy flavor and bland malt character. Offensive.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Toasted and lightly sweet malts, with very low hoppy bitterness and weird earthy notes. Pretty brutal.

Leighton (12635) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle shared in New Jersey - huge thanks to Blipp. Pours clear gold with a frothy, white head. The aroma holds some bready malts, berries, hints of caramel. Medium sweet flavor with grainy bread, slight metal, toasted pine, more berries, orange rind. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Finishes sweet with some piney hops, dry caramel, grainy bread, grass, slight metallic notes. So so.

From a bottle. Pours hazy amber copper with a thin, fizzy beige head. Tastes musky, like sweet corn and mild hops, light grapefruit and pine bitterness, light caramel. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet corn, light grapefruit, light nutty hops.

It kinda stinks! Not a real bad taste, but it is lacking malt. Very one dimensional beer, even though the hops arenít real prevalent either, but do dominate in this lackluster beer. Needs more of everything, except alcohol. It was reasonably priced, but I donít think Iíll buy it again.

This beer is reasonably priced. I thought Iíd try it out. The aroma is off stale oranges and skunkiness. Flavor is the same with the additional taste of roasted dirty socks.
