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. Huge pineapple aroma. Huge. Flavors if sweet pineapple, then pine resin, finally bitter pineapple, like those ones that were picked early and shipped 4000 miles to the grocery store. Pretty damn awesome beer.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2013 Bottle from Galbo! Pours a beautiful light orange color with a good white head. The aroma is great: orange/citrus, some grapefruit and tangerine. Clearly smell the Simcoe and Cascade hops. Taste is strong and hoppy, more like an imperial. Leaves a dry hoppy/pine taste in the finish. And that hop bitterness increases as the beer warms. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Grabbed on a recent trip to florida. Poured into a tulip. A: Floral. Citrus. Orangy. Tangerine. A little lemon. Doesnít hit very directly its sort of a hodgepodge. A: Looks fine. Golden light dandelion color. Good lacing. T: Tastes like a liquid hop. Starts with hops.... then more hops in the middle. Finish is hoppy... but a surprising cream note..... Fades to a piney note that is not terrible offputting. P: For what this is... no doubt a 5. Definately the hoppiest beer Iíve ever had but the finish is amazing. It has like this cuppachino foam note. On first sip I thought I was going to hate this; it being way too hoppy. But as the beer warmed the hops came under more control and the finish ended up being this smooth pine cream flavor. An amazing beer.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of queenholly. I got to say, I didnít see this brew coming. The aroma will smack you with biter tangerines, grapefruit pith, pine resin and some flower hops. This is dank! Huge resin, whole hop cones, huge Simcoe and Cascade influence. Lingering resinous hop bitterness in the finish. Dry texture with a medium body. This drinks like a DIPA. Remarkable brew and I sampled this from a bottle! This has won medals for a reason.

Pours a hazy gold orange with a beige head and sweet aroma of citrus, grapefruit, and hops. Taste is bitter sweet, lots of hoppy flavor with nice citrus, grapefruit, caramel, pine, and resin notes leading to a dry, bitter finish. Very nice IPA

Tap at Hops and Pie. Denver. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is hoppy and a little metallic. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a big hoppy liqourice bitter palate. A standard IPA but a very good one!
