COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This mouthwateringly delicious IPA gets its flavor from a heavy helping of citra and mosaic hops. Donít worry, no fruit was harmed in the making of this beer.

Draft@ the drive bar! Yes, Toroando. Canít tell color, light amber, thin retention. Aroma is damn nice, fresh citrus and juicy. Grapefruit rind, hints of caramel malt with pine. Does every west coast hoppy beer have pine? Ha HA Ha, yeah.... Flavor is just as juicy a the armoa. Lots of citrus fruit with nice lingering pine bitterness. Very nicely crafted single IPA. Flavor is bold for a single/ standard IPA. Damn nice

Draftcat Good Dog. Clear orange amber pour with a slim fizzy/foamy white head. Lace. Strong ruby citrus flavors. Almost harsh aroma of tangerines and tangelos. Golden plums and raisins. Cocoa dusted orange zest. Sugary sweet with some spicy bitterness to balance. Lesser woody, earthy, resiny notes. Bamboo shoots. Pink grapefruit. Brazil nuts. Complex fresh citrus brew that brings in a good variety of unusual notes. A big complicated citrus pour. Lots going on here!

As of late I can not find the time to take tasting notes of each beer I sample. I would like to track and record my thoughts of each so I will just use the simple scoring rubric until more time is available. FANTASTIC

This one is perfect. Heres why. Every time I try a new IPA I say "oh yeah this is it this is the one" well after a while every one is "the one" however, after trying fresh squeezed Iím more confident in saying that. This beer is just awesome. Itís super hoppy, super balance which is key. For me Iím not crazy about the malt. I understand and appreciate why itís there but for me Itís the hops. The aroma on this is literally fresh tropical juice. Some took a juicer and took massive amounts of pineapple, grapefruit, mango, papaya and just dumped it in this beer. Itís incredible. Probably the most tropical smelling beer Iíve had. The taste is just perfection. So much tropical fruit..mango, PINEAPPLE...so much Pineapple I canít even describe it. So fresh. Again itís like someone took all these tropical fruits and squeezed the juice and just poured it into this beer. I canít really think of any IPA that has made me this excited in a while. This one is just killer. Snag some and really appreciate the work that went into this one. It is one of a kind. Cheers!

Fresh squeezed pours a mid-coppery color with a very light brown half finger head. Not much lacing. Slightly piney/citrus aroma. Medium mouthfeel with slight bitter--not overly hoppy. 60 IBUs I think. Honestly, a great brew. Recommend. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The label caught my eye, and the beer surprised. However, the finish is a little off and not as hoppy as I like in an IPA.
