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!

lusikka (6687) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2013
355 ml bottle.
Pours a golden colour with a white creamy head. Aroma of grass, some floral hops and grapefruit. Flavour is very, very intensive; strong grapefruity hops, floral hops, strong pine and biscuity malts. Very, very long, lingering bitter, grapefruity and pungent finish. Although the aroma is surprisingly weak, flavour is really, really excellent. Iím loving this lingering bitterness so much.

355ml bottle @†Super IPA tasting, thanks Hugonaut13!

Pours clear golden orange with a foamy white head. Aroma of grassy notes, citrus, bitter hoppiness and resinous notes. Taste is quite hoppy and fresh with notes of citrus, grass, resin, pine and fruits. Finish is grassy, bitter and fruity with loads of hops. Quite hoppy and crisp IPA.

355 ml bottle.
Pours golden color with a small head. Aroma of mellow floral hops, caramel, mild toffee and some mandarin, mild orange peel and pine needles too. Flavor of citrus fruits, hops, grape fruits, goose berries and caramel. Bitter and very refreshing, would probably have been very nice on the nose too if it were fresh. Very nice anyways.

35,5 cl bottle @ olio, no BBE info
Aroma is a bit stale with gooseberry bush, some nettles and biscuits. Flavour is quite aggressively hopped with gooseberry bush, grapefruit, nettles and fruity notes. Finishes with some gluey notes and fruits. Good.

Braudog (5938) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle. Slightly hazy, yellow-orange, with a thin but very sticky head. Very enticing milky, hoppy aroma. Drinks with a silky smooth hoppy essence, a hint of pine, a hint of citrus. Exceptionally well balanced. (#5008, 5/5/2013)

Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy gold with small frothy white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is a strong floral hop and pine. Medium mouthfeel with a strong hop bite and grapefruit. Easy to drink, a very good IPA from Fat Heads.

dbarnold (1126) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - APR 29, 2013
Exactly what an IPA is supposed to be. Pale, big bitter piney nose with a little citrus. Palate is thin, supper bitter with a quick dry finish. Strong stuff.

574deadzone (1121) - North Central, Indiana, USA - APR 28, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy honey-gold with a tight-bubbled, creamy off-white head that settles quickly and leaves some spotty lace. Powerful, hop forward nose involving grapefruit, mango, pineapple, pine sap, and passion fruit all cranked to eleven along with some honey, biscuit, and toasted malt notes. Pretty sweet flavor-wise but very bitter. Medium bodied, oily, actively carbed, bright, with a long, luxurious bitter pine finish. Goddamn awesome.

johnnnniee (2558) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - APR 28, 2013
Received in trade from cpetrone84, thanks for the opportunity. Pours a clear deep golden color with a decent white head that slowly dissipates to a ring on top. Smells of citrus, pine, resin, dankness, and a hint of green onion with a solid bread and light caramel to back it up. The flavor sweet enough to remind you that this is beer with hints of brown bread and light sugar and a boatload of dank hoppy goodness. Resinous pine with hints of garlic and green onion and a light bit of citrus with a moderate level of hop bitterness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet resinous mouthfeel. This is a really nice IPA, Iím glad I got to try it.
