Uncivilized and aggressive this west coast styled IPA packs wicked hop flavors and aroma. Savage amounts of Simcoe, Columbus, and Cascade hops define this brews signature pine and citrus notes. Try with our smoked wings in the Killer sauce and run the risk of a shrunken head!

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with a one finger white head. Abundant carbonation allows a rocky head to be maintained nearly throughout the entire drink with tons of rocky lacing clinging to the glass. Aroma just screams west coast IPA. Tons and tons of citrus from the hops and is very "in your face." Pineapple, mango, and tangerine along with a solid bready malt base. Really a mouthwatering aroma. All of these wonderful characteristics continue over into the flavor. Tropical fruit immediately that just seems to spread across the mouth. There is a very juicy quality that I just love. Some light bread provides just enough malt to keep the hops balanced. High bitterness but not to the point of being overbearing or unpleasant. Mouthfeel is on the sticky and chalky side which I am not crazy about but it is a small price to pay. Overall, an absolutely amazing IPA out of Ohio that rivals the best coming out of California. I am so happy I found this beer and plan on picking up many more before heading back to TN.

Iíve had this on draft and in the bottle, both are exceptional. Very well balanced earth/citrus blend. I must admit that this brew hides the ABV quite well.

On draught at Fat Headís Portland. Golden color. Aroma is pine and bitter citrus. Hop bomb flavors, with the pine, grapefruit, and orange. Good balance of sweet malt for all the hoppiness.

Tastes like Iím licking a tree. Got as a gift. Awful. Would rather get run over by a truck than consume one of these again.

Pours a Merky golden color. Nice thick foamy head. Aroma of grapefruit. Tastes is hoppy, grapefruit, crisp. Not an IPAD guy but, this is pretty good.

Found this at an ABC store in FL. Pours clear Amber with an offwhite head. Juicy hop aroma - tropical fruit. Intensely bitter with malt backing. Getting lots of that tropical fruit on the tongue. Medium body. Very nice ipa.

Hoppy for sure. Not a lot of head on it. Donít think my palate is developed enough for the citrus and pine.

Draft in fl. Smells wonderful. Definite full IPA taste, slightly over the top aftertaste. Lots of body. Not for non IPA drinkers.. but damn good
