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!

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 (409) - 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 (4234) - 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 (847) - 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

12oz bottle. Pours a clear light orange color with a nice white head. Aroma is all tropical and citrus fruits.Taste has big hop flavor. A touch of honey and caramel sweetness, then finishes very bitter with a huge dose of pine.

JK (5123) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Skyview Tasting, 2/23/13. VEry good. Big grapefruit and citrus in the aroma and flavor. Tons of hop quality, with malt taking a back seat, but it is still there to give some sweetness.

Reynolds314 (2915) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours a nice straw golden color with minimal head. Aroma is heavy floral and light citrus. The columbus hops are really dominant here. Tons of bitterness in the finish with little sweetness. Nice.

12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass. No date present anywhere. Huge thanks to Atomicskis5 for the bottle!! A - Pours a hazy amber body with some very small floating particles of what I can only presume is hoppy goodness. Two fingers of dense off white foam forms settling down to a patchy cap. Excellent lacing. S - Very flowery and grassy with loads of resinous pine and just a dash of citrus. Bit of a caramel malt backbone to bring it all together. Rather sweet. T - Tons of pine and flowery hops which get cut by a wave of bitterness. A bit of malts are present on the finish. Very little fruit or citrus present, maybe just a bit of grapefruit "pith". There it is...I finally used the word pith in a review...but otherwise a pine bomb. M - Medium bodied and quite creamy. The level of bitterness is damn high on this beer. O - A refreshing pace from the fruitier IPA’s I tend to gravitate towards. Just a delicious pine forward beer with some light flowery notes and a HUGE bitterness Damn good stuff, OH is no chump in the hop department.
