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!

Cloudy orange. Smalle head. Draft. Huge fresh citrus/floral aromas. Heavy bitter taste. Pretty smooth texture, just slightly oily. This is a hop bomb. Just a very slight malt undertone. Pretty good. Wonderful aroma.

Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Aroma of extreme piney citrus hops. Dry smokey bitter and citrus. Finish lingers with a peppery bite. Hop heads dream.

On tap at Fat Headís - Golden cloudy color with a medium head and a LOT of lacing. Strong citrus nose and a heavy (strong again) grapefruit taste. Thin mouthfeel and dry on the finish. Excellent!

A huge thanks to Cliff for this growler. As soon as I cracked the lid, a bouquet of citrusy hops filled the room. The balance in the flavor is great, bready malts, citrus/pine/resin hops. A great beer. Thanks Cliff!

Growler from fatknitty. Huge hop nose, hell yeah. Big dank and citrus, light malt backbone. Crackers and grain. Light, love it. Assertive as fuck. Pours bright golden, great frothy lasting head and lace. The flavor is big and danky, chewy citrus pith and pine, light bread and crackers malt backbone. Dry resiny chewy finish. Lingering hoppy burps. Fucking solid stuff. Would drink all the time.

Growler at home thanks to miketd. What a killer IPA this one is! Served the day after I got it, from my Minneapolis Town Hall Glass. Pours clear orange, thick cream head, great lacing. Nose is fantastic: Many-layered citrus, spice, tropical fruit, big pine and spruce notes, just so close to being perfect... Flavours of bitter grapefruit, very spritzy/juicy, which is just how I like it. Possibly the best IPA Iíve had to-date.

On tap at the brewpub not long ago. Extremely good, and very well balanced, definitely not overpowering. To be honest, I wish I remembered more about it, this is more of a tick than anything at this point.

16oz draft on tap at the Pittsburgh location. Pours a crystal clear, bright orange with one ring of head that faded very fast. Nice, punchy nose, scallions, pine, grapefruit, lemons, earthy, onions. Flavor was similar, bright citrus, pungent garlic, hop leaves, resinous, a little malt sweetness rounding it out. Reminded me of a slightly less tight version of Pliny. Medium bodied, big, zesty finish. Solid beer.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2012 Thus might be the best IPA Iíve ever had. Citrus/pine on the nose. Quite effervescent. Golden in color. Totally drinkable and delicious. Wow.

From a growler from Fat Headís, shared by someone who i donít currently remember. Poured a clear golden orange color with a huge foamy white head. The aroma is heavy on the pine hop character with a decent amount of citrus. Flavor and body is crisp, pine, citrus notes. Very tasty!
