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!

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.

keanex (1452) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - FEB 6, 2014
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.

EithCubes (4888) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 29, 2014
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.

Bottle. Pours golden orange with off white head. Nose and taste of old tropical fruit, caramel malt, sticky resin, dank grapefruit, orange candy and bubblegum. Lighter medium body.

pineypower (2509) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours out a very attractive orange color with a small off white head. Aroma is of caramel malts, toasted grains, citrus, floral and light grassy hop notes. Taste is more malt up front with a solid punch of grapefruit bitterness that creeps in after the initial sip, some mild fruity and grassy hop flavors with a nicely bitter finish. Iíd definitely drink it again.

Bottle. Copper pour with beige head. Herbal and earth grassy hop aromas. Flavor is a bit more dull, maltiness coming through now.

dmac (4004) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 17, 2014
12oz bottle from Spirits Manahawkin. Poured a syrupy deep sunburnt orange body under a smaller off white tight foamy head. Aroma is really nice with lots of citrus and slight tropical fruits, rotting oranges, grapefruit, dry toast and a hint of vanilla pot purri. Medium to fuller body with strong carbonation and a full syrupy finish that lingers with a light to medium bitterness. Flavor is nice but not quite as good as the aroma. Notes of yellow grapefruit and oranges, medium toast, grain husks, rind and dry hop cones. Solid beer and the best of the beers I picked up yesterday.

Nice aroma on this robust, but still smooth IPA. There is a little ginger and pine in there. Good.

FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Pour clear copper with a finger of white head. The aroma is fairly floral with a little pine in the distance. The taste is nice and bitter with just enough citrus sweetness to balance. Solid but not spectacular. -Fish!
