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!

DoublEE (783) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2013 An onslaught of luscious tastes sail over my taste buds. This West Coast child sports sappy resin, strong bitter grapefruit as suggested in the nose, and a strong bitter aftertaste that leaves behind a solid dry spot, calling for another sip. Citrus fruits of orange and pineapple sneak in with repeated sips. Very hoppy but wonít repel the tongue with an overeager attack. A complex yet simple, straightforwardly enjoyable IPA.

12oz bottle thanks to pellegjr - thanks man! Pours copper orange with thin bright white head. Aroma is a full-on assault of tropical fruit: pineapple, grapefruit, mango, sweet mandarins - wonderful. Lots of pine resin in there too. Taste is a delicious mix of pine, grapefruit, and pineapple - pure hop hedonism. Light caramel malt notes in the background; fantastic dryness in the finish, great lasting bitterness. Cracker of an IPA.

12 oz. Bottle. Floral perfume grass scent. Deep copper, light amber pour with a big foamy head. Medium silky feel with a dry fizz finish. Floral hop fronted taste , slight caramel malt, acidic, bitter grass finish.

12 oz. bottle currently, multiple drafts at Pittsburgh location previously. Poured hazy orange with white head. Tons of lacing and fine sediment floating in glass. Nose is grassy with floral notes. Juicy citrus fruit flavor at first, backed by a resinous, piney, moderately bitter finish. Medium bodied. A real solid IPA, and dare I say sessionable? Very pleased to see that production of this one has been ramped up.

Boliv (1149) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2012
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!
