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!

Bottle. Pours a clear copper body with a nice one finger frothy off-white head that left some nice lacing. The nose has a really unique hop variety that I donít know that Iíve smelled before. It does have some similarities to Nelson Sauvin I think. The malt stays nicely in the background letting the hops take center stage. The flavor doesnít stack up quite as well as those other famous hops from NZ, but they are still unique and pretty tasty. Nice tropical fruit notes without a whole lot of bitterness. The malt is OK up front, but itís sweetness exerts itself a bit much on the back end. Medium bodied with nice soft pinpoint carbonation, the lingering finish is both positive and negative for me. Interesting beer, and some extra credit for seeking out an unusual hop variety and showcasing it.

Light amber color with a foamy off white head. Juicy nose of orange juice and tropical fruits. Lots of hop flavored Jolly Rancher candy with orange juice, tropical fruit and apricot jelly on toasted English muffin. Syrupy texture. Long sweet hoppy goodness.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5768) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2013 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-tan color with a large foamy orange-white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was earthy, woody and somewhat meaty. The flavor was bitter, earthy, meaty and bready with a bock like sour caramel presence. Long bitter sour caramel finish. Medium body. Not good.

Citrus fruit and caramel on the nose. Orange-red with moderately retaining, white head. Bitter and somewhat sweet. Medium bodied, carbonation is moderate, and finishes with lingering, sweet, malt flavors. Very traditional and well balanced, but a little sweet.

Pours hazy brown with minimal head. Aroma of tangy citrus drenched malt. Taste is nicely balanced up front with a long peppery finish. I could have a couple. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Braudog (6066) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle. Dark orange, the head is small but sticky. The aroma is big and earthy, rich with a wet pine forest. This drinks with a viscous burn, full of a big malt body and a bit of acidic burn. Good stuff. (#4928, 1/20/2013)

brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Orange in color with a white head. Sort of a rough aroma. Tons of soap, green apple, and alcohol. Some cider, grass, and a bit of sweet bread and toasted malt. The flavor is really no better. Soapy, boozy, and harsh. Lots of green apple skin, quite bitter, and quite grassy. Some sweet toasted bread and a little bit of citrus peel.

not too much of an aroma, maybe faint faint pine hops. Very smooth body, has a decent hop taste, bit of pine, caramel, not bad overall.
