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!

Pours a nice amber color with a nice foamy head. The aroma you pick up the malt right away with some dark fruit, on the first taste as well. Finishes nicely for a high ABV.

Bottle to English pint. Pours hazy, amber/orange, quick head, very little lacing. Aroma of apricot, light grapefruit. Taste is bready, caramel sweet. Not really that bitter, which tends to let the alcohol come through. Odd for a IPA at 7.5%. Medium body, medium carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes with notes of caramel, grass, mango and apricot. Average but interesting.

Pours copper, thin off white head. Flowery nose. Taste has large bitterness, some pine and resin. Booze burn finish, light carbonation, medium body.

Not exactly worthy of the name. Has some soda like carb, but after drinking a DIPA from Green Flash and one from 21st Amendment, it?s hard to give this one equal footing. Solid, and I would drink it again, but I?d rename it first.

Cybercat (3511) - Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Pours a clear, bubbly amber with a thick eggshell head. Aroma has a firm note of resiny hops and a flowery hint. Flavor is hoppy, a little bitter, and - um, that’s it. Not great, but palatable. Texture is about average in both fizz and viscosity. Fair to middlin’, but worth a fair shake.

Pretty Good IPA poured from a bottle a hazy orange color. Floral and citrus notes are distinct in the aroma. Flavor starts sweet and finishes bitter, but not too bitter. I would like to try this from a tap.

Pour at PGH Beer Fest. Hazy orange pour. Aroma is floral and herbal. Not too much citrus. Malty taste. Not great.

Pours a cloudy orange color. Decent floral nose. Taste has some citrus up front (not much), but goes straight to a bitter finish. Not all that well structured. Alcohol not well hidden. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a golden amber color with a billowy white head of one finger height. The head has a decent level of retention, fading over time to leave a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is biggest of a citrus sweet smell with it being a mix of tangerine and orange as well as containing some other sweet smells of caramel. A little bit of bread as well as some hops of a grapefruit, herbal, and floral hop smell mingle with the rest of the smells. Taste – The taste begins with a rather malty and bready taste with a good showing of a sweeter caramel and toffee flavor. As the taste advances, some hop flavors of grapefruit greet the tongue, starting out rather light, but gaining strength as the taste advances. With the increase in the grapefruit hop comes some flavors of a floral and earthy nature with the flavors drying out some as the bready transition to a slightly more cracker nature and some of the sweeter caramel fades. In the end, with the transitions of flavors that occurs throughout the taste, one is left with a semi-sweet and rather malty, moderately hopped (for an IPA of 7.5 %) flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The beer was on the slightly thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that was on the lower side. The lower carbonation and thicker body really accentuated the sweeter and maltier flavors of the brew allowing them to really stand out, but did very little for the lighter to moderate hop flavors overall. Overall the feel was just OK. Overall – An aright IPA; with it being very easy drinking and smooth, but not really delivering a great hop hit. Just OK overall.
