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

Bronzan (158) - Windsor, California, USA - JUN 27, 2016
A great big hoppy aroma that sets the stage for what follows. Really enjoyed this one. Could have sat down for another, but lunch wasn’t an all-day affair. A bit of citrus, but I picked up more of a piney, grassy taste. My favorite on my TX trip.

jzzbassman (1580) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2016
Tap at WoB Arlington. While I think this is not so much dank as tropical, I found it a really tasty IPA. Aroma is pine and tropical fruit, and the flavor is juicy tropical hops with a clean finish.

Leighton (18221) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2016
Keg at Brew & Brew - Austin. Pours soupy orange with a frothy, white head. Nice and juicy in the nose, lots of pulpy citrus, pale bread, papaya, peach. Medium sweet flavor with moderate pale bread, dense citrus character, very low bitterness, some tangerine, peach, melon. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Sweet and juicy on the finish? With more pulp, pale bread, mango, orange. Perhaps just a touch too sweet, but definitely rich and juicy.

jbruner (3922) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 19, 2016
Sampled at Classic City Brewfest 2016. Pours a clear golden orange from the can with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma and taste of big dank hops, piney citrus, like a super simcoe, with hints of caramel malt underneath. Really solid IPA.

deaconmike (468) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - APR 20, 2016
On draft at Taco Mac. Pours hazy light gold with thin white head. Aroma is juicy tropical fruit - mango and peach mostly. A bit of pepper and pine in there as well. Taste is also massive tropical fruit, moderate bitterness and malts are only in the background. Body is silky smooth, low carbo. Very nice beer.

slowrunner77 (9919) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 4, 2016
Also not getting much in the way of dank hops, but it’s an explosion of bitter bright citrus - pineapple grapefruit and peach. Very nice if missdvertised.
