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!

SamP01 (589) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Pours a clear medium dark amber with a medium off white head. Aroma of citrus grapefruity hops, orange notes and flavor, caramel malt, yeast and fruity. Taste same as aroma. A medium body, slight smooth mouth feel and good carbonation. The finish is sweet caramel malt, yeast and bready notes with some citrus and grapefruit bitterness on the end for balance. Overall has a good caramel malt character, good sweetness and bitterness, a good nicely balanced brew.

quiznoaz (309) - Arizona, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Clear light amber, almost red. Light malty citrus aroma. Hops overpower the malt flavor, but nice body and mouth feel. Nice balance of bitterness and hop flavor, mainly citrus and tropical fruit. Good.

Caytinator (966) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Pint on tap. Golden beer, translucent...slightly hazy, small steady head, some lacing. Medium alcohol, decent bitter taste, a little complex, nice profile overall. Nothing spectacular but definitely decent.

Pours a hazy orange with a thin head. The aroma is mostly sweet malts. The flavor is sweet up front then has a nice fruity hop bitterness. The finish is dry and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Golden amber with an inch of frothy white head. Smells of rotten banana and light citrus. Tastes of strong citrus, a bit of rotting fruit, and bubblegum.

Boutip (4863) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 4, 2013
Bottle: Poured a light amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some minor lacing. Aroma of light fruity hops notes with light citrus hoppy notes as well as some dry bitter notes. Taste is a mix of dry bitter hops with light tropical and citrus notes with some caramel malt with well-balanced sweetness level. Body is about average with good carbonation. This is not bad overall but lacking the hops punch I was hoping for.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear amber color with thin tan head. Aroma of light citrus, salt water, and caramel malt. Reminds me of the ocean for some strange reason. Taste is much better. Bitter grapefruit, citrus, lemon rind, and caramel malt.

Sampled during CBC 2013. Golden orange pour with a small khaki head. Light tropical fruity hops, some melon and stonefruit, bready and caramel malts. Decent bitterness, light fruity hops, some maltiness. Not bad.
