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!

12oz Bottle. Thanks for sharing, Kevin. Plastic, bubblegum, and cat pee aroma are distinctly Simcoe oriented. Sure, it gets a little tropical and piney, but itís too much. Flavors are more subdued and integrated and I really like the mix of pale malt and juicy hop flavor. Itís clean and smooth with the hoppiness, lacking any of the roughness, but Iím just not digging the hop flavor profile. A bit boozy.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2013 Bottle, courtesy of b3shine and another bottle by Sammy via a separate trade. Thanks guys! Bright orange body, tight lightly gold-tinted head. Very aromatic nose, perfumey ruby grapefruit, lush tropical fruits, hint of eucalyptus. Gorgeous aroma! The palate is awash in fresh flavourful hop character, with sweet grapefruit standing out among a veritable fruitbowl of tropical fruits. There is a hint of mint in there too. The malts are just a hair sweeter than biscuit/cracker character, so the hops really are the star here. The body and the bitterness are austere enough that drinkability reaches dangerous proportions. Fantastic! So glad I have another bottle of this!

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 19, 2013
12oz thanks Jim! Pours a lighter golden with a nice pillow of a white head. Aromas of tropical fruits, light pine, and light caramel. The flavor is out of this world! Tons of melon, guava, and citrus fruit. Grassy/piney hops and so damn drinkable itís silly. What a world class brew

Jjg226 (71) - Staten Island, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Pours a clear orange with a white, three-fingered head. Retention is very good with good lacing. This is what an American IPA should look like! Aroma dominated by grapefruit and pineapple, followed by resinous pine. Little malt sweetness to speak of, the nose is all about hops! Classic west coast IPA. Bitterness dominates the palate, pine resin up front, grapefruit rind right behind. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, Head Hunter finishes dry, with strong astringency. Overall, a supremely crafted IPA in the West Coast style! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

iceman15658 (135) - Acme, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Pours an coppery amber color with a thin white foamy head. Citrus zest is noticeable in the aroma. Taste is like a mix between traditional IPA and Amber

I really love this beer and seek it out when I can. Beautiful citrusy hop nose. Bitterness is well balanced with a long hoppy finish.
