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!

Tap, gold pour. White head, nose and taste are super bitter. Citrus, piney, great IPA

Really heavy citrus nose with a bit of pine and toffee. Clear, orange, some retention. Resinous mouthfeel, with the pine up front, then a bit of citrus and it really mellows out. Hop forward indeed. Thanks for the trade Ron.

Ron (2912) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle Erica brought back from Ohio. Pours a clear orange in color with a finger of white head that leaves a small amount of lacing. Aroma has a great citrus scent, along with some floral and tropical fruit notes. Flavor is fresh citrus hops throughout. Finishes with a tangy bitterness and lingers on the palate. Alcohol is very well hidden. Delicious.

Typical American hop aroma. Great color with a thin head. Bitter up front with sine sweetness. I would have liked this beer a bit drier. Good ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jredmond (6062) - Manhattan, New York, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Bottle courtesy of Paul. Pours a bright golden orange body with nice one finger soft white head. Aroma is fresh melon and light sweet fruit. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of bright fruit - mainly melon, but some pineapple as well, pine; soft sweet malt compliments the hop profile nicely. Also, reasonably drinkable as well.

BBB63 (6395) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle: mostly clean (some floaties) golden hue with a frothy head and okay lace. Juicy, tropical, lightly spicy and touch dank hop notes over a layer of biscuity and bready malts. While it leans towards the bitter side it is not over the top and quite drinkable. Lively and aggressive mouth feel. Pretty darn tasty I must say.

desurfer (1246) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle. Amber body. Aggressively hopped is not an understatement; this is full of citrus and pine, biting hops throughout, with sweetness and bitterness lingering for a while after the swig. Thereís no shortage of high-hopped beers these days but this oneís a keeper for the hopheads. It tastes good so who cares if IPAs are íclicheí.

Pours golden with a thin white head. As soon as you pop the bottle a huge citrus, pineapple, grapefruit, and pine resin aroma explodes out. Flavor starts out citrus and sweet pineapple then is quickly over taken with a potent grapefruit rind and pine resin hop bitterness.

Pours a dark golden color with a white head. Light body. Extremely hop forward with citrus flavors. Lots of pine flavors during and after tasting. Not my favorite type of IPA but done very well.
