COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A medium-bodied, golden IPA that gets in your face from first sweet sip to crisp, dry finish with the exotic tropical fruit flavors and aromas of New Zealand Motueka hops. With just enough malt character to keep the aggressive hop presence in check, and an unruly 7.5% abv, this brew was seemingly born to kick ass. And RAZE HELL!

Hazy dark orange color. Aroma Is simple, hops first, barley yeast second. Touch of pine, earthy floral. Taste is smooth, hoppy. On tap at JoJoís . Nice start to a night out with my wife.

Pours a nice dark amber color, but is a bit cloudy. Lots of citra hops and malt here. Has a nice sweet finish to it. A good beer, but there is a good chance Iíd forget about it.

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with small off-white head. Tropical, dank aroma. Slightly tart, a touch salty with long mellow bitter finish. Medium bodied. Different and good.

MrBunn (2391) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a nice orangish gold with a thin head and aromas of papaya. The beer is a little odd... I can tell there is a decent hop presence there, but all I can use to describe it is "papaya" and a little bit of citrus. Itís a decent IPA, but it is also a little unconvincing... Not quite sure what the problem is, but it seems a little washed out or un-directional or something.

Dark maltiness with a bit of caramel and nutty sweetness. A dirty, bitter hoppiness. Gritty finish. Meh.

This beer had a thin body and was a little light on overall character. A decent ímildí IPA. The alc. content was on par but thatís about it.

Bottled December 3, 2013 (2 months old).
Appearance: The body is a mildly hazy amber to orange hued with a very short head on a hard pour. The head quickly shrinks to a bubbly white coating.
Aroma: The aroma shows a fruity hop profile with a slight dankness that reminds me of Simcoe. The aroma is a bit weak with some citrus present with hints of malts and a sort of yeasty aroma. Mildly appealing.
Taste: The aroma matches the flavor nicely, but Iím not overly fond of the aroma. This tastes like decent homebrew, a bit yeasty with a muddy hop profile that is slightly fruity. The malts are mild and the bitterness is moderate. The beer doesnít taste very refined.
Palate: Full bodied, light carbonation.
Overall: I find myself enjoying this beer though Iím not fond of it. This is no better than a decent homebrew. I tried it on tap and itís a bit better, but nothing I want to buy again.

Bottle, marked 12/03/13, so Iím hoping born on. Nose is beautifully rindy, crisp citric hops with tropical leanings, lightly soapy. Clear orange-amber with medium carbonation and a sudsy off-white head. Taste is strongly bitter but not too extreme, tons of soapy and mild resinous touches, tropical fruit and rind working inward from the edges, touch of floral and slightly more pine, more than a little (bad) alcohol seepage. Medium body is soft, extremely juicy, and very cleansing. Not one Iíll be seeking out again, but made well and with some style.
