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. Very good IPA. Didnít expect much (maybe the simple label threw me) but this is a really good one. Will definitely get this again

A truly amazing IPA. Very well balanced between its bitterness and citrusyness. I could drink this all day.

ContemplateBeer (1996) - 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 (961) - 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!

Draft, Dewey's, draft. Clear, golden. Head didn't last. Hoppy, grapefruit notes, but not terribly strong. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I remember liking this a whole lot more, on tap, at fat heads in Pittsburgh. In a bottle Iím not as impressed. Still very good IPA, but not earth shattering. Lots of sediment is a turn off for me also. I will try this one again someday and see if this bottle is just an anomaly.

edwardbass (789) - Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Darkish-yellow color, aroma of citrus and mildly pine hops. Taste is citrus hops up front and the piney hops overtake, but not in an overpowering way. Not much malt, which is fine with me. Fairly high carbonation. Very dry with a mid-length bitter aftertaste. A very, very good IPA. 12 oz bottle from Crown Liquors downtown in Indianapolis.

Thanks to Homer321 for sending two of these wl IPAs in our trade! Slightly hazy medium gold body with a huge sticky white head. Light pineapple hop aroma. Light but firm bitter hop flavor, nice long dry bitter finish.

PorterPounder (7332) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling medium golden pour, soft snow white head with just a hint of lacing. Aroma has some solid spruce notes, spearmint accents. Flavor is full-bodied and bold with some grapefruit citrus bitterness, a touch of mango fruitiness, some caramel sweetness. Mouthfeel has a nice thickness to it . Pleasantly surprised.
