COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Beautiful golden copper color. Smells like pine, hop resin, malt and a bit of guava. It has a nice bitter kick to it, that lingers on the palate.

Very clear, golden, light honey color. Great potent pine/citrus aromas. Medium plus mouthfeel. Forward hop bitterness without being overwhelming. Malt backbone peeks through. Taste of citrus and milf bread.Got better and better as it warmed up. Nice - would enjoy this again.

Rcvd in trade. Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a transparent somewhat golden/orange and slightly yellow colored body with a spectacular looking one finger white foamy head that once it starts dieing. The lacing is just so thick and clingy, nice show. The smell has bitter hoppiness up front, primarily a nice combination of a citrus/pine-like substance of sorts, slightly spiciness of sorts plays nicely in the background. The taste has a nice combination of a bittersweetness that plays very nicely with the spicy flavoring coming from the aroma, dry piney aftertaste and finish. The palate has a nice light to medium body, and is fairly sessionable. Carbonation is great for an AIPA as a more than adequate sharpness invades my tongue and mouth. Overall, I can see why so many people really like this one and if I could get it on a daily basis, Iím pretty sure I would too.

Bottle from my dad in NE Ohio. Thanks! Poured into snifter at home. Copper color with thick white head and great spiral lacing. Aroma of pine, resin, hay, grass and citrus. The taste was similar but very well balanced out with the malts. Fairly light but packed full of flavors. Well carbed, nice finish with bitter finale. Awesome IPA.

Golden orange pour, typical ipa appearance. Smells like citrus mixed with wild flowers and just a touch of pine resin. Taste is bitter floral notes, tart fruit, and dry malt. Finishes quite dry.
