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.

Pours copper-orange with a one finger off white head with excellent lacing. Aroma is of fresh citrus juice, tropical fruits, peach, grassy hops, light dankness, and light bready malts. Taste is similar to the aroma with maybe just a little sweet malt note in the background. Has medium-full body with a creamy mouthfeel and a pretty bitter, long, lingering finish. Overall, a fantastic, world class IPA that Iím glad I stumbled upon.

A mellow and thick IPA. It comes with a mild bitterness, nutty backbone and a dash of acetone. Nothing to write home about. Unlike the double...
