COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A pale ale hopped to the extreme! This beer starts out as a nice pale ale until it reaches the kettle. Throughout the course of the 90 minute boil four massive hop additions are made which transform this beer into a hop-head's dream come true. Both Chinook and Tomahawk hops from the Yakima valley are added in extreme quantities for the maximum bitterness, flavor and aroma.

Bottle: Poured a clear amber with a off white cream head. The aroma is sour grain and malts, not much hop. Taste is metallic hops and malts, very watery finish.

kaser (2488) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2012
Below average IPA. Pours nice orange with thick white head that lingers. Not much for aroma. Taste is boring, not too hoppy or much to it. Drank it fine but didn't enjoy it by any means ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BK7 (720) - Turner, Oregon, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Bottle. Not much to this India Pale Ale. Some citrus, pine and caramel. The balance is alright, but the brew is overall weak and thin. Finish has a light bitterness to it.

Bottle. Looked good. Smelled good. Taste? I donít know what happened. Poured a nice orange color with a good two finger off white head that did retain throughout the entire beer. Did leave light lacing on the glass as it went. Aroma was decent like youíd expect from an ipa. Good hop smell. Grapefruit, citrus and pine. Then you take your first drink and what happened. Weak watery flavor. Soup and metallic. Tastes like dish soap. Not a good flavor for an ipa. Too thin. Average for ipa.

Pretty hard to find taste in an ipa. Very enjoyable. Has a very good after taste as well ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bigrond (1459) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2011
One of the worst IPAís Iíve had in a long time. Bottle was incredibly over-carbonated, took 5 minutes to pour. Had a light clear copper hue. Hops very dry but not very bitter. Skip this one, I wish I did.

callmemickey (2469) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Golden-amber body. Thick off-white head quickly receded leaving some light lacing. S: Light citrus-pine hop notes. Semi-sweet caramel malts. Subtle, but nice. T: The citrus and pine hop bitterness gets drowned out by sweet caramel malt at times, diminishing the flavor profile slightly. M: Solid, medium bodied brew. Good carbonation levels and a clean, bitter finish. O: A good all around IPA... more reminiscent of east coast IPAs than a west coast brew. The malt presence is a slight hindrance.

Tried this one because I like their Grand Cru, Imperial Red, ad Scottish ales, and because my buddy dislikes this beer. Since we often disagree, I thought it might have potential. I was wrong. In an age of wonderfully interesting IPAs, this one comes off as lacking in aroma, taste, and palate. Like so many IPAs that i do not like, this one was all about, and only about, bitterness. Boring. Will not be giving this one another chance.

Bottle. Pours a nice orange with a medium head and aromas of lemony citrus and a little grassy herbal edge. Flavor is similar. Itís a little underpowered for an IPA in my book, but is still a very nice and clean beer.
