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!

ChadPolenz (1700) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2016
2015 BJCP Category: 21A American IPA

AROMA: Fairly strong aroma of citrus and melon. Clean, bright scent with slight tea leaves or pine needles. 10/12

APPEARANCE: Orange proper hue; quite cloudy but carbonation is visible. Average, off-white, foamy head. Good retention and lacing. 2/3

FLAVOR: Intense dank bitterness. Delectable combination of fruit juice concentrate, bitter citrus pith and some pine/green tea on the finish. Malt is strong enough to offer balance, but is not sweet or distinguishable. 17/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body; crisp and well carbonated. Alcohol is subtle and slightly warming but tolerable. Dry, slightly astringent aftertaste. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: A standard IPA that goes above and beyond. Palette is a bit familiar, but execution is impressive. 9/10

skmikeg (1759) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2016
Pours copper-orange with a one finger off white head with excellent lacing. Aroma is of fresh citrus juice, tropical fruits, peach, grassy hops, light dankness, and light bready malts. Taste is similar to the aroma with maybe just a little sweet malt note in the background. Has medium-full body with a creamy mouthfeel and a pretty bitter, long, lingering finish. Overall, a fantastic, world class IPA that Iím glad I stumbled upon.

A mellow and thick IPA. It comes with a mild bitterness, nutty backbone and a dash of acetone. Nothing to write home about. Unlike the double...
