COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Poured a dark orange with a medium lasting head. Aroma was of bubble gum, coriander, and citrusy hops. Taste was of blood orange, some baked malt, then a little grapefruit that got slightly stronger. No hint of the slightly above average alcohol.

Sarlacc83 (1809) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle brought back from WI by my wife, thanks to her uncle. This is one of my favorite pieces of bottle art ever. A: Cloudy orange with a thin bubbly white head. Lacing. N: Mango and papaya the second the cap pops off. Pine, grapefruit, earth, and cracker. Touch of weed and plenty of straw and hay. T: Very bitter with a light malt sweetness underneath. M: Medium body, lightly resinous, no alcohol, prickly carbonation. O: A solid West Coast style IPA. Doesnít quite measure up to my Oregon favorites like RPM, but it rises above most of the landscape by doing the basics very well.

Couple extra appearance points for the epic label. Even with that this is a great IPA. Definitely sweet bright tropical and citrus. Medium bodied and tasty all aroundz

OK, so Iím giving this an extra point for Appearance because of the absolutely epic label. Aroma is citrus, passion fruit. Taste is tropical and passion fruit and citrus hops with a serious malt sweetness backbone. Palate lacks something I canít place - to watery? This is a good IPA, though it feels to me more like a DIPA, but itís not a great one.

Cloudy orange pour with slight beige head. Little lacing. Pine needles and bubble gum on the schnoz. Cold slap bitter. Fairly decent. Greatest fucking label EVER! A cat with a gun on a fire breathing unicorn and rainbows? Seriously? The brew could suck and Iíd buy it for the label. Luckily it doesnít suck. Bottle.

screigh (625) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 14, 2016
Pours a hazy orange. No head at all. Smells a bit musty. Taste is musty, dirty and some grassy hops.

Aroma is pine, citrus, fruit and a big hint of hops. The flavor is fruit, citrus hops, slight sugar/candy, malts and a mix of bitter and slight heat/alcohol in the finish.
