Hopheads crusade on a heroic quest for the holy grail of India Pale Ales. The subconscious composes paradisiacal scenes of malty waves crashing on a ripe lupulin landscape cascading hop flavors and aromas in profuse abundance. With humble confidence we offer this brew as fantasy made reality. Balanced in every detail and gushing resinous, exceptional citrus flavors and aromas that collaborate with soft bready notes surrendered from premium English golden malted barley, this beer is a tropical dreamscape. Epic.

Pours copper with thin, white head. Aroma is big hops, grapefruit and tropical fruits. Taste is nice citrus upfront, followed by bitter, hoppy blast. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a murky dull orange with a decent off white head. Has a citrus, floral, caramel, and fruit aroma. Flavors of pine, bread, citrus, sour dough, orange, and some earthy notes. Not bad.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of floral hops, some pale and caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same with some hints of tin. Average texture. Not great.

ThirstyBird (2191) - London area, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2015
Pours a hazy orange/brown with a cream colored head. The smell is orange, wort, grain, citrus. The taste is grain, citrus, earthy malt sending dry and fruity. Medium with fine carbonation. A slightly primitive yet drinkable IPA.

Pours a cloudy apricot with a well-sized white head. Aroma is sweet, hoppy, and delicious. Flavor is also very hoppy and well-balanced. This is very good flavor - very smooth and very nice. Good pick-up if you’re in the Madison WI area.

tmoreau (2935) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2015
On tap at Come Back In in Madison, WI., and mug served showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with frothy persistence to the off white head foam, and clingy spots & strands of lacing. The aroma started dank, then offered expressive esters as citrusy grapefruit & orange, and tropical hints. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste was as the nose, plus a pronounced citrus, rind, and resin, hop bitterness, mellowed just enough by the smooth malt. Nicely balanced and flavorful IPA.

Phil142 (1) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 20, 2015 does not count
Love the hop blend, and the taste. It is slightly cloudy, although as a homebrewer you can easily forgive that. While there is malt, the mouth feel is somewhat watery. All in all this is one of the better IPA’s I have tried!

Absolutely amazing, big bold flavor, with a nice clean bite on the finish that invites another sip

Really nice IPA. Smells like sweaty armpits but has a nice citrus flavor balanced by light hops.
