COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Who doesn’t love a great IPA? The secret of this brew is that we used actual dinosaur bones.

Okay, that was a lie. But we did throw in enough hops to bury a Brontosaurus. Inspired by some of our favorite West Coast IPAs, the bold pine, citrus, peach, and tangerine hop flavors, along with a clean bitterness are balanced by a velvety malt backbone. This beautiful blend of flavor and drinkability showcases the truly unique experimental hop 05256 which we find to be delightfully juicy and dank. You don’t need tiny arms and a huge head to enjoy this mammoth IPA!

Pours a cloudy orange-amber color with a small head that collects to a nice ring. Aroma is juicy and fruity. Fresh squeezed oranges and grapefruit, light pine, light pineapple, and light caramel. Taste sugary sweet and very juicy. Only a light bitterness. Grapefruit juice, orange peel, pineapple, and light lemon. Very dry finish with some tartness too

This is a pretty dank IPA. It has an aroma with hints of fruits like pineapple, mango/apricot, and citrus. Pours with a golden honey colored body with a slight haze. The white pillowy head dissipates quickly leaving mild lacing around the glass. The flavor has a pretty strong bitterness to it with a skunky after taste. The flavor has hints of malt, but that is overpowered by the abundance of hops used in this brew. It feels silky on the tongue when drinking. While it is not one of my favorite IPA’s, it is definitely worth a try.

Not a big fan. It's as if they had everything going for his brew and then took it down too early. The hints of greatness are there. Unfortunately they are overshadowed by tones of mediocrity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Delivers where it promises, not the dankset IPA out there but pretty close. The back of the can says it uses" the truly unique experimental hop 05256". Pungent skunky aroma with hints of fruits like pineapple, mango, and citrus. Golden orange/ yellow body has a slight haze, the cap is thin and ringed leaving behind some decent lace. The flavor has mid level bitterness, and hop skunkiness, the fruit presence is gone. Some malts come through, but this is about the hops, like an IPA should be. Overall its not the best, unusual and worth a try.

16 oz. can from Spec’s El Paso. Pours a hazy golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have big citrus and peach character, some dank hops, some resiny notes, I think it got a little better as it warmed. It gets points for a new brewery.

Draft. Cloudy yellowish copper. Aroma of sour apricots. Flavors of apricot, grapefruit zest, with a little bit of toffee and some intense bittering in the finish. Unusual, superb.

Can thanks to Righcross55. Nose is earthy, tropical and lightly danky. Taste is mostly tropical and citrus more than danky and earthy. A little more dank comes through as it warms with a touch of minty. Crisp clean malt. Really good!
