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!

JHunter (676) - British Columbia, - JAN 12, 2013
Pours a light copper colour with slim size head. noticeable large amount of sediment in the bottle. Strong floral hoppy aroma with light spruce and citrus. the flavour is a little soapy and dry but has a nice bitterness

BLADT (625) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle in Mexico DF. Cloudy wheat color. Study white head. Strange perfume of canned fruit cocktail. Tropical. Mandarin too. Taste lacks structure. Bitter, but why? Needs focus.

HKdIPA (238) - HONG KONG - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle at City Tacos in SD. Very malty aroma. Taste is very very malty with a slight bitterness - disappointing IPA. More like a very malty pale ale with little hops.

rondphoto (2023) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUN 14, 2014
@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy medium amber with a good 1" rocky head (after things have settled), mottled stripes of lace. Taste is caramel malt that is challenged, but not overcome, by citrus bittering midway through the palate. Both sides exit together, but as the swallow lingers, malt asserts itself once again. I suppose it is an IPA, albeit not a strong one. Very drinkable, good with food.

veronneaupy (136) - 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

Brewfoolery (18) - California, USA - APR 10, 2014
Served in a pint glass at Graciela, Taller de Cerveza in Mexico City. Subdued nose with virtually no hop aroma, could be the glass. Base malt clean with slight bread crust flavor. Bittering hops come through in the mouth and aftertaste. Citrus including grapefruit and lemon peel is refreshing and leaves clean lingering biter note.

dreamflower (577) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 19, 2014
Shared with northropfrye at Barley Brothers. Tastes and smells like grapefruit with refreshing bitterness. Nice IPA. I liked it.

northropfrye (2215) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 18, 2014
Hazy orange body white head some lacing. Pine aroma. Nice quite bitter taste. Not a wussy IPA. Underrated.

erickok (3548) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JAN 17, 2014
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)

Jimthechap (1652) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 7, 2014
Appears hazy orange with a good white head. Aromas of orange zest, spruce, herbal grassiness. Flavours similar with fruitiness to the fore - oranges, pineapple, peaches. Excellent bitterness. I used the word ’punchy’ to describe the bitterness of its brother, the Chupacabra and it applies just as well here. Pacific NW hops in typical profile bringing on a warm, lengthy finish.

Masterkush7 (507) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 28, 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.
