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 at Fat Heads. Top notch IPA. Modern feel thanks to the Simcoe, and the Cascade and Columbus round it out. Filtered golden orange body. Foamy off-white head. Fresh, big hop tones. Great balance. Excellent.

cbfobes (2606) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2015
On tap at 2014 GTMW, been waiting awhile to try this one, pours a hazy amber orange with a thick white head and lots of lacing, the aroma has a ton of citrus and tropical fruit on the nose, mango and pineapple over flow from the glass, the flavor has a bright hop and fruit front end with a crisp finish of citrus and fruit, mouthfeel was pretty awesome, wow.

RRistow12 (365) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear Amber with white head. Nice strong citrus aroma with a little pine. Even some tropical fruits. Taste is a nice clean consistent bitterness with a malt backbone. Moderately heavy bitterness with a mild to moderate sweetness. Flavors of grapefruit, orange, tropical fruits, pine, caramel. Definitely a top tier IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sarlacc83 (1106) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 29, 2014
On tap at PDX location. A: Semi - clear orange color, whispy white head, some lacing. N: Pineapple, biscuit, pine, toffee, some grapefruit and mango. Balanced between citrus and earth. T: Drying bitterness, good sweetness underneath. M: Resinous, medium body. Prickly carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden. O: A mighty fine IPA. Great balancing act though itís not any thing you havenít had before. Prefer Hop Venom, but would drink this anytime.

neepsntatties (1276) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 27, 2014
On tap at Fat Heads in Portland. Colour...golden-Amber with a thin head. Nose...quite tropical with dried pineapple and mango as well as star fruit. Palate...very frothy up front and then wave after wave of resinous, dusty hops and crushed pineapple. The mid palate is lightly sweet and brimming with mango and maradarin. The finish is long and bitter.

Iíve had this on draft and in the bottle, both are exceptional. Very well balanced earth/citrus blend. I must admit that this brew hides the ABV quite well.

On draught at Fat Headís Portland. Golden color. Aroma is pine and bitter citrus. Hop bomb flavors, with the pine, grapefruit, and orange. Good balance of sweet malt for all the hoppiness.

Tastes like Iím licking a tree. Got as a gift. Awful. Would rather get run over by a truck than consume one of these again.
