COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Finally an American-style IPA from us... This beautiful red-orange ale has a full malty body balanced by a fruity apricot/grapefruit nose. Mounds of dank Summit hops in the whirlpool and dry-hop additions provide a deliciously quenching finish to this East meets West-coast ale.

jnkor (316) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Aroma is sweet and hopped, but a tad stale and vinegary. Poured a nice deeper brown/orange, but without a big nice head. End carbonation is an off white ring. Taste is hopped but bitter and vinegary. Palate was a bit frothy.

Pours a clear dark amber color with a medium frothy white head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of citrus, piney hops and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of earthy hops, pine, grapefruit and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Can@SBWF2014. Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, earthy, floral, some nice bready malts along with mild caramel. Flavour is fruity, floral, some mild nectar, spices and mild grassiness. Also some mild maltiness to it. Somewhat balanced, but not really my thing this one.

dlbeer (842) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle. Red/orange pour with minimal white head. Smells of hops and malt. Sweet start with a lot of bitterness for an apa. Not much carbonation. Just ok ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can at SBWF2014. Hazy yellow color, small white head. Grassy, sticky even harsh nose. Medium-bodied. Flowery hoppy, a bit sweetish flavor. Taste is better than the nose.

bavarian81 (64) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 1, 2014
The aroma is okay. Definitely some citrus and floral hops, possibly a whiff of bready malt? Taste is nothing special. Mostly just hops that are not very well balanced. Nothing amazing

My first thought was "it’s like a razor blade to the tongue". Very sharp, but refreshing at the same time. A new twist on IPAs.

Bottle poured a hazy tarnished gold with a small lasting ivory head. Aromas of biscuit, earthiness, pine and light grapefruit. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, pine and light grapefruit with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish.
