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!

A very malty IPA. There is a hint of nice tropical/citrus fruit from the hops, but the malt sweetness really overwhelms the flavor. Somewhat metallic, too. An OK beer, but not my favorite IPA.

12 oz bottle shared with drsordr from notes. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale toasted malts, earthy, floral, grapefruit citrus hops, grass, moderate bitterness, decent. I didn’t get the tropical notes they described.

Bottle from Bethesda Food and Beverage. Copper body with slight head. Nose is hoppy, floral. Taste is also of hops and bitter and citrus too. Quite nice. Good texture.

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.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy, dark golden orange color with tangerine edges and a two finger pillowy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Very good retention, taking a while to settle and coating the glass with chunks of soapy lacing on the way down. Earthy aroma with floral, grassy hops, oily resins, tropical fruit and a sweet malt backbone. Hints of fresh cut grass, sticky kind bud and pine needle followed by citrus rind, melon and grapefruit. Stronger malt backbone than I prefer with lots of caramel sweetness, toffee, biscuit and roasted nut. Medium body with soft carbonation and a slight creamy texture. Some lingering dry, earthy hop bitterness up front but this beer is very sweet with a prominent malt backbone. Some sticky pine, sticky resins and grassy soil countered by citrus and caramel malt sweetness. Some grapefruit, melon and prominent orange zest along with sweet caramel, toffee and biscuit. As it warms, the citrus/tropical fruit notes stand out a bit note with some mango, pineapple and blood orange but the malt presence is a bit stronger than I like for the style. A lot of the interesting hop flavors are sacrificed in the name of balance. Still, this is a solid beer with decent flavor and a well asked ABV making it deceptively drinkable.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Appearance is light amber body, white head. Aroma is pungent hop smell, herbal, spicy. Taste is hops and caramel malt. Palate is sweet, medium carbonation. Overall, its kind of just regular.

radagast83 (7388) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2015
12oz bottle. Poured a translucent orange color with a medium-large white head. Lots of lacing on this one. Aroma was pine, light resin, some earthy hops, light crisp malts. Flavor was tasty, but lacks a little something, a bit too earthy, but would not turn this one down again.

PorterPounder (7404) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2015
Newport News, Va. - Farm Fresh Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling light copper with a sticky eggshell white head - traces of sticky lacing. Fresh, resiny, spruce-like aroma, touch of peachy fruitiness. Malt oriented flavor with plenty of bitter citrusy hop goodness, a touch of nectarine fruitiness. Mouthfeel is crisp, just thick enough. Decent enough.

Vaiz (4327) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle in Baltimore. Hazy orange pour, thin white head. Aroma is quite fruity, some caramel, a hint of rye, grapefruit and somewhat floral. Flavor is very bitter, quite some thick malts and full bodied. Intense IPA, but a little directionless. A bit of everything in there, but no real single selling point. Not bad though.
