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!

MartinT (8492) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2012
My Bottom Line:
Boastful menthol moves into citrus fruity and then coniferous hop bitterness in this brash American IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the hazy yellow.
-That hop signature was clearly redolent of toothpaste...
-The flavor profile is expressive and flavorful, but lacks polish.
-There are few malt flavors.
-The body is lean and bubbly, which helps make the brew quite refreshing.

12 ounce bottle from Secret Santa jmikolich. Thanks! Pours a hazy copper color with a large frothy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of citrus, floral hops and strong pale malts. The taste is bitter earthy, pine, vegetal hops, pale malts. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness. Solid IPA.

Bottle from the Railroad St. B&G. Pours a golden honey color with nice head that leaves sticky lacing. Nose is an intoxicating combination of bubble gum, lime, pine, floral and cumquat. first sip is a beautiful juicy fruits, sweet malt, orang bitterness takes over and balances nicely. finish is juicy fruits with a clean lingering bitterness. amazing stuff.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2015 Pours a rich combination of orange, gold, and tan with a big white head and good lacing. Aroma of pine and citrus hops. Taste of grapefruit, pine, alcohol, and and some carmel backbone. Moderate to heavy body. Heavy dank in the aftertaste. Very nice.

sloth (2625) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Medium sized off white head with good retention and a lasting, coating lace. Lightly hazy copper colored brew. Fat, juicy, resiny hop nose, lotsa pine and citrus. Medium bodied, lil oily and resiny with a tad much carbonation, mouthwatering. A piney, citrusy hop bomb with very little in the way of malt flavors save for a little toasty hint. Woody, earthy and a hint tropical, melons and mangos. Lots happenin. Dry, faintly fruity finish with a bitterness not meant for the timid. Awesome brew! Props to MOTORTODDHEAD for the bottle. Also was lucky enough to pick a few more up at Jungle Jims when i was in OhiO last week.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
Bouteilles de 12 oz. Arômes invitants de houblons américains, plutôt portés sur les agrumes et les fruits tropicaux. Robe orangée et limpide, peu de mousse et effervescence moyenne. En bouche, le houblonnage fruité et également résineux est à l’avant-plan, mais le malt est tout de même plus présent que dans plusieurs West Coast IPA, contribuant des notes délicatement caramélisées. Finale légèrement sucrée et très amère (peut-être un peu trop). Une belle IPA, sans toutefois s’approcher des meilleurs exemples du style.

weihenweizen (2156) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Refrigerated fresh 12 oz. brown bottle from JStax poured into a snifter. Pours clear light amber with small off-white head. Little lacing, medium body, low carbonation, and pine aroma. Taste is pine, herbal, and bitter finish. Not a fan.

Steasy66 (1086) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 29, 2012
12 oz into pint glass. Golden with off-white head. Big hop aroma, sweet, tropical fruit, and a little herbal. Taste is quite bitter, piney/herbal hops not a lot of the fruit I got in the nose, but nice nonetheless. Carb and body are great. Overall a very nice beer, I only wish the fruit carried over to the flavor and it had a bit more of a malt backbone.

TomDecapolis (4617) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle pours a light hazy golden amber with a big foamy white head that left all kinds of lacing Aroma of orange zest, roses and other mixed citrusy hop notes. Flavor of orange, light caramel malt notes but overall a nice crisp citrusy hop beer that is dry enough to make an amazing IPA with enough malt to balance things out. Bitterness is very smooth.
