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!

Bottle, c/o Summer Secret Santa 2012 (alexsdad06). Pours clear coppery orange with a 2-finger creamy beige head. Huge mango and papaya aroma, with sweet pine sap and citrus rind. Incredibly fresh, sweet hops. The flavor is sweet fresh-cut pine, spruce, and citrus rind (orange, grapefruit). Aggressive citrus and pine finish. Medium carbonation and body, a bit warming, and very drinkable. Very damn good. Thanks! [1097]

12 ounce bottle poured an amber orange color, with aromas of pine, grapefruit, citrus, and light caramel. Flavors of citrus, pine and grapefruit, a touch of bitterness in the aftertaste, but iit made me want more. Really nice IPA overall.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear orange/amber color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is mostly pine and citrusy (grapefruit, citrus peel, tropical fruit) hops, along with a little bit of caramel malt. I think the taste follows the aroma, it tastes mostly like pine and citrusy hops, with a teeny bit of caramel malt noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís creamy and oily with a moderate amount of carbonation. Itís nice to see this brew in bottles, Iíve heard about it for a while now but finally was able to try it today and it didnít disappoint! Itís certainly one of the best Ohio IPAís (and IPAís in general) along with White Rajah and Columbus IPA. Definitely worth trying if you have a chance to get it!

DrSilverworm (5016) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Sample on tap. Mildly hazy yellow orange color. Thin off-white head, leaving even lace. Grapefruit, pine aroma - the hops are big here. Light smooth carbonation, very big finish. Good lace, dry texture. Nice bitter taste. Good stuff, deserves another rate.

alexsdad06 (4522) - Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear bright orange amber color with a medium sized white head. The nose is big citrus and pine hops, some more dank hops as well. The initial burst was even a touch tropical. Iím sure there is some malt, but who really cares right now. The flavor has a base of some toasted bread, but again bring on the hops. There is citrus, pine, resin, grass with a lingering bitterness that has me looking forward to the next drink. This is the every day drinker I have been looking for and I canít wait until they are a regular on our shelves.

Bottle to pint. Looks decent; orange with good carbonation. Not much head or lacing though. Smells good; a pleasant assortment of hops. Tastes good; much like it smells with a good mouthfeel. Good beer!

JStax (2601) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2013 Poured on draft. Copper color with a crisp, sticky white head of foam. Aroma is huge citrus, pine, and resin with a balancing dose of light malt. Semi-sweet taste with a quickly turning move to bitterness somewhere around the first quarter of the taste and so on to the finish. Juicy citrusy finish.
