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!

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.

Bottle. Medium amber cloudy color. Good head. Citrusy initial hop aroma. Strong bitter hop bite on palate. Not my favorite hop variety/flavor. Minimal lingering aroma.

The beer comes at you with a nice floral hoppy aroma but slightly disappoints in flavor. I will say the Motueka hops adds a very distinct almost malty compliment to the beer. Its not a typical over the top bitter hoppy citrusy IPA. That can be a good thing, or a bad thing. Doesn’t raise hell, just confuses your taste buds.

Cakes (362) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2013
12 oz bottle. Dark amber, creamy off white, foamy head. Hopped up fruity lemony and peachy caramel aromas. Moderate grapefruit zest bitterness balances on soft bready apricot notes. It’s very well layered over soft caramel malt tones throughout. Medium bodied, soft carbonation,. medium hops. Not overdone.

12 oz. bottle. Poured copper colored with minimal stone colored head. Starts with tons of sweet caramel malt and then followed up with an astringent hop bitterness. Didn’t get much of the tropical fruit flavor. Meh.

snoworsummer (2140) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Draft. Pours cleat light brown with a thin white head. Smells like light grapefruit and caramel hops. Light body and low carbonation. Very malty, slightly bitter, slightly sweet, and nutty.

Beergeek23322 (2262) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Sampled at the brewpub at Arundel Mills. Amber color, pine, resin and floral aromas. Too much caramel flavors for my taste which overwhelms the fruit. Good hoppy finish.

Not my kind of beer. A little too hoppy and the bitterness makes it hard to drink, for me.

Draft at the pub in BelAir. Pours light amber with a good head. Aroma a well balanced hops. Flavor a nice bitter on the front end, medium/full body carrying a tapering, well balanced bitter to the aftertaste. Overall a genuinely likeable IPA. I woulda had two but it was lunch!
