COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A straightforward malt body supports the distinctive bouquet of Columbus and Falconers Flight hops that impart citrus, grapefruit and pine notes characteristic of the West Coast style. F5 is a belligerent hop reckoning.

daknole (9437) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 20, 2014
Pours a nice gold color with a fluffy white head. Nice lacing. This is very good. Quite bitter with grapefruit peel, pine trees, very light malt sweetness in the middle and finishes bitter. Clean and tasty.

A- pours a caramel amber with a thin finger of off white head. Decent retention and great lacing. S- the caramel malts and passion fruit punch are both strong upon opening the can. Molasses, apple cider, brown sugar, prunes, grass, soap and a faint dirtiness also persist. M- medium sticky body with medium burn on the palate. Medium carbonation. T- malts and overripe apples come first. Pine resin and more muddled sugars follow. Tropical fruits and figs start in the middle. Ending is long, dry and bitter. Mostly grass, soap, and citrus.

OldGrowth (2754) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - APR 6, 2014
Can, from trade with Soonerchamps. Some kind of code of 3 07 22A 2 8 P Good aroma, sweet. Pine, citrus, grapefruit/orange. Little fleshy fruit. Mango/apricot. Grainy biscuity malt Hazed brownish orange color, good head and lace. Bittersweet flavor. Medium body, thick creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. Good. Bit muddled, starts my run of Oklahoma beers, don’t wont another, but maybe locally it would score a notch higher ....

Dear brewers of IPA, please put a born on date on your beer. I have no idea how fresh this beer is. I hope it was a little old, I am rating it nonetheless. Pours a reddish amber with nice white head. Color is too dark for style. Scent is candy piney hops. Flavor is unbalanced with a metallic bitter finish. Body and liveliness are on the money. Can - Received in Trade

bytemesis (3503) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Can thanks to OKBeerFan. Pours hazy orange amber with a medium off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly with good lacing on the glass. Aroma is muted pine, citrus, caramel, a bit of dank forest floor. Flavor is fairly sweet, some pine, citrus and dank notes, light bitter. Bit of a lingering bitter finish, but not harsh. Medium body, oily mouthfeel. Pretty decent mainstream IPA; certainly no obvious flaws.

Johnsense (854) - - MAR 7, 2014
Amber pour. Sweet aroma. Bitter hops, grassy, resiny, sweet malt. Average mouthfeel. Good, but id love to try a fresher sample. Still very thankful for this.

jrob21 (2668) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Bonus from a recent trade. Nice solid seasonable ipa. I’d drink it regularly if it were my local. Good grapefruit finish with a big caramel malt backbone. Resiny sticky pine give this some heft on the back of the palate.

JustDrinkIt (261) - Arizona, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Hazy burnt orange pour with small white head. Aroma of hops is somewhat light and citrusy, melon, and a minor woody quality. Flavor is abrasively bitter, malty backbone, and melon underlying throughout.
