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!

Pours clear golden honey/lt amber with a medium white head...bright with decent lacing and retention. Aroma has lots of grapefruit and some mild hoppy spice. Flavor is more piney...still a bit of grapefruit and spice. Mouthfeel is light/medium with a dry piney bitter finish.

arkurzynski (1484) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 12, 2012
GTMW. Amber-orange pour. Nose is big piney grapefruit and mango. Ultra clean and fresh grapefruity pine and woody herbal hop bitterness. Solid malt backing helps this to not be too dry on the finish. An excellent IPA.

Squat bottle. Pours hazy deep golden with 3-finger off-white head that laces copiously. Nose is huge tropical fruit including tangerine, mango, melon, and black pepper. Tastes caramel malty, but the hops are the highlight; a resiny, mangoey, tangeriney, black peppery hop bite that kicks in at mid-palate. The Simcoe hops take center stage here, with the others rounding them out. This is a very good IPA.

Growler shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike! The beer appears transparent and orange in color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. The aroma has a pleasant citrus scent, along with some floral and tropical fruit notes. Very tasty stuff. Really easy to drink, Fresh hop presence throughout, with various flavors melding together nicely. The beer finishes with a tangy bitterness and lingers on the palate. Alcohol presence is muted, but this beer will sneak up on you if youíre not careful. I would happily drink this again. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 03-12-2011
