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!

Draft in a pint glass. Aggressive hops - in a good way with a powerful bittering. Syrupy malt adds a real body. Color is beautiful and of the style (orangey copper). Lacing is viscous but does dissipate.

jcr (2554) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Draft. Light amber body. Off-white head. Aroma of leafy hops, earth, pine, resin. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Nice balance between malts and hops, but lots of resin and pine atop caramel and raw grain. Losing my enthusiasm for the taste of resin bombs. Great aroma.

Was excited to try this beer, but was left a bit disappointed. All hops. No malt. At 7.5% there should be some room for a bit of sweetness on the back. Pours a beautiful clear gold with ample white head and fantastic lacing. Scent is a beautiful piney and citrus blend. The taste is just a bit of an onion bomb in my opinion. Well carbonated with light medium body. Plan on giving this another go when I have the chance. Bottle - Trade from FooFaa

This is the prototype of an IPA. Hops assault you right away, but it doesnít have a distinct bite that others, like Stone, are known for. Itís bitter, but balanced, and it lingers for a good minute. I say itís the prototype because there isnít much that deviates from that...there arenít pronounced notes of anything like grapefruit or resin. Itís just your average IPA profile, but incredibly well done.
