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!

Nice sweet high alcohol IPA. Good sugary hop flavor and a decent amount of alcohol to warm.

Poured a slightly reddish color with a thin offwhite head. Aroma is hoppy and malty too. Taste is hoppy and a bit syrupy with pine. Balance, is pretty good, overall nice!

Reviewed from notes. Pours a moderate copper color with a white head and a bit of lacing. The nose is some light citrus and pine hops plus a bit of pale malt. The taste is mild bread without too much hop bitterness. A bit of citrus makes its way through. Pretty decent balance though the hops are not enough. Easy drinking but not terribly flavorful.

Nice, easy drinking IPA. Nothing too special but it hits the points. Citrus, light pine, some malts, and a real light herbal tone through it. Medium bodied. Not too bitter but it has just enough to make it drinkable and refreshing. Doesn’t stand out but doesn’t step back, either.
