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!

Bottle from Dennis. Thanks! Pours amber with a big frothy white head. Aroma has ripe tropical fruit, lemon, slight malt. Loads of grapefruit, lemon, pine resin and slight soapy notes in taste, sweet malt plays second fiddle. No alcohol. After taste is dry, long lingering and grapefruit bitter.
Great bitterness in this one, this is how I want them!

Maddog (518) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2013
A killer IPA! A citrus hop bomb that is well rounded and rather balanced with a big 7.4% body to back up those 87 IBUs. Nice bitter finish, but not harsh. The best Ohio made IPA?

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Bottled: unk Thanks Intihar! Pours a slightly diaphanous gold with a soapy surface of whites. Smells fucking awesome. Sweet citrus, grapefruit, bit of body odor, some biscuit, touch of onion as it warms. Flavor is bitter, gritty, some harsh resin, some citrus rinds. medium bodied with moderately hi carb, which is large and spicy. Overall a really fine beer, glad to have had it. Would love to have it again.

ContemplateBeer (1990) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Aroma: Melon, mango with resiny grapefruit character, prickly, peppery and lively nose. Appearance: Very still copper with a frothy white head that coats the glass. Flavor: Assertively bitter with mainly grapefruit character; some tropical fruits toward the finish. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, flat carbonation, bitter and very dry finish. Overall: Some really good things going on here, but not top tier for me.

Hammy78 (959) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle from trade. Perfectly clear copper, good carb, half a finger of fluffy white head. Nose is sweet caramel, but tropical citrus , resins hop. Tastes sweet, a lttle bitter, a touch dry on the finish, a little alcohol. Great stuff, I would like to have a good session with this or try it on draft. Pretty delicious.

tdoyledesign (179) - Michigan, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Pours a nice golden color with a thin white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is superb with tons of citrus, pine and an abundance of hops. The taste is very citrusy up front with a lot of hops in the middle and a bitter hop finish. Mouth feel is great. The palate has a hint of citrus piled on with a variety of hops. Very crisp and refreshing!
