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.

Tap at Karben4. One of my new favorite IPAs. Citrusy and tropical fruit juiciness. Nice malt backing. Easy drinking and tons of flavor. Just an excellent brew.

Pours a cloudy golden color with minimal white head. Big aroma of citrus and resin. Taste starts sweeter than expected given the aroma. There is a nice malt body in there before the hops come in with a powerful punch of citrus and a dry, biting finish. That extra hint of underlying malt sweetness makes it quite drinkable. Very good.

On tap in Madison. Didnt hear about this brewery until I saw it started selling out at local stores. Solid IPA with great balance and nice aromas from the hops used.

A very nice IPA, but I wish it wasn't so cloudy. Hop aroma was inviting. Taste wasn't over-the-top bitter like some IPAs. Actually had a nice balance of malt, though the hops were more predominant. Very drinkable.

Not sure about the breadiness, but it is certainly citrusy and florally. A good IPA.

Hazy amber to gold. Nice catty pine and citrus with faint golden malt. Flavor is nice, dry pine with mild citrus with some biscuity malt. Dry lingering bitterness. Nice.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a small sudsy white head. Aroma and taste were very hop forward with lots of citrus, some tropical, resin, and pine. Very good IPA and exactly what I like in one Im drinking. Body was lighter and easy to drink with a lasting bitterness.

Sampled at the STL Hops 7th Anniversary Party - Pours hazy orange with an off-white head. The aroma has funk, pineapple, mango and lightly toasted malt. It has a medium grainy body with soft carbonation. The flavor starts really dry with citrus, pineapple and crackers. The finish has dry crackers and grapefruit. Really good IPA.
