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!

BOD 8/24/15. Clear copper pour. Outstanding head volume, world class lacing and retention. Outstanding nose of classic pine and grapefruit rind over biscuit. As it warms subtle orange and dank notes are added. Almost medium body that is quite smooth in texture and has creamy and oily aspects. World class carbonation with a burst of effervescence in the middle and a finely bubbled rollicking prickly finish. The flavor profile is world class. Intense hop flavor in the west coast style that is balanced by a bready biscuit with a moderate bitterness sums this one up. It begins with an assault of pine and grapefruit rind hop flavor that slowly transitions to orange and mango as the biscuit sweetness arrives coupled with a touch of caramel. The middle delivers a moderate bitterness that adds a dank quality as it begins to fade. Alcohol is very well covered with just a hint of astringency emerging in the dry finish. A subtle bitterness lingers, but the main component is wonderful rind and dank flavor over a sweet background.

Rating #1627 - #CBC2015 Beer 12 - Welcome Reception - Pours a golden amber with a creamy white foam. Aroma of grapefruit rind, pinecone. Palate is more sweet citrus, orange, grapefruit, with a lovely piney note that finishes with assertive bitterness. Lovely IPA.

Pours an amber color with a white head. Aroma itís pretty strong pic the citrus hops and caramel malts. Flavor is well balanced with the Curtis and caramel malts. Decent bitter finish.

MartinT (9267) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2016
My Bottom Line:
This quintessential American IPA develops plenty of flowers, citrus fruit and pine on a honey-laced cereal base balanced out by resinous bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A foam tuft tops the bright pale amber.
-Pineapple fruitiness is also quite engaging.
-Malts share a few biscuity angles as well.
-This one is not reinventing the wheel. But it is a beautifully designed and efficient example.

Bottle at home while visiting Jacksonville. Pours gold with a white head. Lovely fruity, dank hoppiness, light veg aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Pine, lemon, grapefruit, light mango, light toast, tangerine, light caramel, very light metal in the bitter finish. Good stuff.

NikkTwist (2666) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2015
Draft at Moriartys. Slightly hazy orange amber pour with a frothy off-white head. Complex mix of dry hops. Earthy citrus resins. Medium blonde caramel malts but the hops are rugged enough to overcome the sugars. Notes of burnt grapefruit. Spruce pinecones. Candied orange peels. Autumn leaves. Mangos. Celery stalks. Nicely full-bodied. A great IPA. Feels larger and harsher than the listed 7.5% ABV but kudos for keeping it untamed.

Pours a clear copper color with some nice lacing as well. Smells bright and hoppy. One of the better aromas that I have smelled. Tastes hoppy, bitter and floral. Love this beer!!!!
