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!

Orange in color with a white head. Sort of a rough aroma. Tons of soap, green apple, and alcohol. Some cider, grass, and a bit of sweet bread and toasted malt. The flavor is really no better. Soapy, boozy, and harsh. Lots of green apple skin, quite bitter, and quite grassy. Some sweet toasted bread and a little bit of citrus peel.
