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

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!

On tap at LUCK Dallas. Pours a cloudy yellow with a thin white head. The aromas are grapefruit, pine, citrus. The mouthfeel is dry and bitter with a medium body and good carbonation. Cheers!

Smells slightly sweet, slightly hoppy and has characteristics of white bread and a paper-like smell. Hazy yellow color. White bubbly head. Tons of lacing. Tastes citrusy and hoppy. Not great, kind of fake like a cheap lemon drop. Palate is decent. Not overly impressed with this one. Will be trying more selections from cedar creek but this one was a miss ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the can. Not bad, not great. Seems a little sweet but not a show stopper. Hops shine and give way to bitterness. I think if you used the word "dank" to review this, then you just phoned it in. Wait a minute... drats. Anyway, pretty fair but not a repeat purchase. I like my IPA a little more crisp.

Low fill in a 16 oz can. Oxidized, no hop aroma or flavor,...oxidized crystal malt aroma and flavor...smells of sherry and almonds and cardboard. Nonexistent body (due to oxidation prob). Weak recipe, worse packaging process and the most expensive ipa on shelf space shared with a gabfest gold and bronze...go figure

473ml can. Smell is peach and heavy pine, some sugar, spice. Flavor is big piney bitterness, dank, mango, and heavy malt though not caramally, just sweet and boozy. Decent ipa.

Mixed feelings about this one. Nice hop aroma of floral and pine, which made it promising. Unattractive murky sand color that did not make it inviting. Upfront hoppy aroma but not overpowering. Medium to average palate for the style. Some malty sweetness to balance.
