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 clear amber with a medium lt tan head. Aroma has pine and doughy malts. Flavor follows suit...piney/earthy hops and sweet caramely/doughy malts. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is bitter and resinous pine. Just not very tasty at all.

jmikolich (1440) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Bottle from CaptCougar/GT2, complete malt bomb, actually undrinkable to me because it tasted so stale and old, no brewed date or date marking of any kind so down it went.

abcfan (695) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2012
A very nice example of an IPA. Pours clear orange, with very little trace of white head. Aroma is full of sweet floral hops. Taste is citrus and caramel sweetness. Finishes slightly sticky with some hop bitterness. Very sessionable.

Arayaga2 (1769) - portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Hazy chestnut with a bit of white head. Aroma is like tangerine pith with malt and a bit of booze. Taste is the same with rich citrus and sweet malt. $4/12oz ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Hazy to cloudy golden color, thick creamy white head. Arona if grass and flowers. Taste is bitter pine, grass, scallions. Decent.

PhillyCraft (3148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2012
On tap at Perch Pub, pours a lightly clear pumpkin orange, with thin white head, and nice white sheets of lacing. Aromas of citrus, caramel, toast, and vanilla. Taste is much of the same with a nice orange zest flavor and some delicious biscuity malts to back up the hops. Ultra sessionable. Not as funky and cheesy as most new zealand hopped varieties but still real nice. Dry finish. Medium bodied. Very enjoyable ipa from Duclaw.

boxofrane (2067) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Bottle from Mari’s. 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.

DocLock (7743) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Bottle from Craft. Pours translucent deep coppery orangy with minimal off-white head that dissipates quickly. Nose is fruity, with piney hops and a big caramel malt bill. Tastes caramel malty, somewhat astringent, with mid-palate fruit, pine, tropical notes, and a sticky IBU-forward finish. Medium palate heft, not a ton of complexity, and some late heat.

radio_nowhere (759) - Maryland, USA - OCT 19, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2013 Draft in a pint glass. Copper color, decent white head. Aroma of citrus/piney hops and caramel malt sweetness. Hop bitterness hits first followed by a fruity-like sweetness. Stronger then expected, full flavor and dry finish. Me likey.
