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!

johnnnniee (2933) - 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, I’m glad I got to try it.

barn0216 (513) - California, USA - APR 24, 2013
Bottle. Clear golden orange, excellent foam that never fully dissipates and laces the glass well. Aroma is an even blend of pine and citrus. Taste is sharply bitter along with musty, grainy notes from the malt. Bitterness lingers long in the finish. Overall, incredible aromas, one of the best if you like IPAs bold and extra bitter, although it is a little too much for my taste.

Bottle with Chris. Pours a cloudy golden orange with beige head and solid lace. Nose of grapefruit, pine, caramel, peach and tangerine. Medium body with a nice bitter finish.

This IPA is great on tap or in the bottle. One of my top 2 favorite IPA’s along with Brewkettle’s White Rajah.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2013
UPDATED: APR 15, 2013 Draft. Smack my face this is an aggressive beer. The appearance is standard and the aroma has the citrus qualities you expect but the taste is upfront and very flavorful. High bitterness yet balanced. The greenness of the hops can seem like a gimmick in most beers but not this one as it blends in nicely with all the other ingredients. A memorable beer.

jhp40219 (374) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 6, 2013
Pours a hazy darkish orange with a large white head that leaves some thick lacing. Aroma is mouthwatering! Pineapple, citrus, pine, fresh hops, and malts. Taste is citrus, pine, hops and malts. Long finish with a malty aftertaste. Very crisp! Smooth with a creamy texture. One of the best IPAs I’ve had! On par with Three Floyd’s Zombie Dust. Very, very good!

PhillyCraft (3966) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2013
Fresh bottle compliments of Chris. Pours ultra hazy bright orange with medium off white head. Nice lacing. Aromas and flavor of heavily dank simcoe hops: lots of grapefruit, pine, and tropical notes throughout my glass. Smaller notes of caramel, and mango. Medium body/carbonation. Finishes lightly bitter. Really good ipa. Would love a case if anyone is holdin?

dagimp (829) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2013
Poured from a 12oz into a pint glass. Thick white head. Nice aroma of dank mango. Mouthfeel is thick and gooey. Taste is very tropical. Tiny bit of pine. A very tasty beer and probably better when very fresh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a dark golden with white head. Scent is quite hoppy and floral. Taste is piney hops with some citrus and grapefruit. Lasting bitter finish. Solid IPA.
