COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is an homage to the travels of so many people that came to the US for a better future. A place where with hard work you can have a few bucks to spare for this really great brew! Brewed with four different types of hops all with different citric notes; Mandarin, Lemon, Grapefruit and Lime all complement each other to create a citric bomb!

Elaborada con malta a base unica y cantidades generosas de lupulo, esta IPA Mexicana consiste en 4 diferentes tipos de lupulo dejando un amargor demasiado notable a frutos cítricos (mandarina, limón, toronja y lima) su color es ligero y el cuerpo lo suficientemente completo para una IPA de muy alta calidad, Cheers!

superspak (2836) - Michigan, USA - MAY 28, 2012
22 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some decent lacing on the glass. Aromas of big orange peel, lemon zest, grapefruit, herbal, grass, pine, lime, caramel, and slight earthy spiciness. Pretty nice aromas here with good strength and balance. Taste of big orange, grapefruit, lemon zest, pine, herbal, caramel, honey, grass, bread, and spiciness. Good amount of bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of orange, grapefruit, pine, herbal, lemon zest, honey, bread, and caramel on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic balance of bitterness as sweetness; with a great hop flavor profile. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy mouthfeel that is quite nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with pretty much no warming noticed at all on the finish. Overall this is a great IPA that is very balanced. It has a nice hop flavor profile, and is extremely easy to drink. Really enjoyed this one.

Classic hop mix, orange, floral, grassy, with biscuit backup. Juicy taste, fairly bitter, very pleasant mouth feel, not too carbonated. (Bottle at The Beer Box)

veronneaupy (175) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2014
Un nez un peu piquant de piment. Un peu houblonné et un bon goût de grain. J'ai apprécié ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kapusil (646) - HUNGARY - NOV 5, 2014
0.355l bottle. Hazy amber body, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toast and piny, citrusy hops. Taste of caramel, toast, pine, grass and a decent amount of grapefruit. The aftertaste is quite bitter. Nice IPA.

bhensonb (11512) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours orange copper with a transient beige head. Aroma seems floral and citrus. Med body. Flavor is citrus over somewhat roasty malt. Edging kind of close to a hoppy APA. Decent flavor, and it finishes nicely bitter. Underrated methinks.

omhper (19953) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2013
Bottled. Hazy pale amber, small head. Citric nose with some butter. Dryish with above medium body and well rounded firm malt. Distinct grapefruity hops, long bitter finish. Solid IPA from a solid brewery.

bulldogops (1108) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
Rating 778 - Nov 18, 2013. 8 oz at Beer Revolution in #yeg. 7.5%. Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong citrus, almost Five-Alivey. Taste is more of the same - sweet smorgasbord of citrus, light pine, light zest. Finish dried out quickly, but a decent IPA.
