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!

Nice IPA. Deep orange-hued color. Minimal head. Besides the ever-welcome hoppy bitterness, I'm picking up grapefruit -- and pineapple, which is a treat. Would like just a tad more carbonation though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[5006-20121208] Cask. Pine resin hops and fresh leafiness and toasted needles aroma. Clear, golden orange body with a quick foamy white head. More freshly toasted pine hops in the flavour. Medium body is quite bitter. Delicious. (8/3/8/4/16) 3.9

sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2012
12 oz bottle, Whole Foods Columbus. Orange-straw; huge white head; partial white silky covering all the way down; light lacing. Citrus, pine, bread, caramel. Flavor? You guessed it: citrus, pine, bread, caramel. Medium mouthfeel, almost silky carbonation. "Oh hey, we just put 8 billion pounds of hops into a beer. This will win awards." Blah blah blah, every one of these high-rated IPAs is basically the same. Simcoe, Columbus, Cascade. Simcoe, Columbus, Cascade. Simcoe, Columbus, Cascade. Itís no longer interesting. So tired of these.

Sweet trade extra! This is the kind of brew that reminds you of why you love IPAs. Direct, unadulterated hop indulgence. Nothing excessive or face-wrecking, but a juicy, vibrant, full-bodied IPA that nicely integrates fresh cut grass, tangerine, and resin. Totally satisfying.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 28, 2012
12oz bottle via trade on BA. pours a gorgeous, clear, copper tinted gold capped by a dense, rocky, white head that leaves thick sheets of lace. aroma is amazing with huge, herbal, dank, resinous hops backed by heavy grapefruit, orange zest, apricots, and canned pineapple with hints of sweet caramel malts and honeysuckle as it opens up. flavor is outstanding as well with a big punch of bitter, resinous, piney hops up front that are balanced by orange peel, lemons, pink grapefruit, and prickly hints of peach, pear skins, and white grapes. palate is medium bodied with perfect carbonation and a dry, bitter, fruity hop finish. overall, an outstanding ipa that i wish i could get on a daily basis.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with a one finger white head. Abundant carbonation allows a rocky head to be maintained nearly throughout the entire drink with tons of rocky lacing clinging to the glass. Aroma just screams west coast IPA. Tons and tons of citrus from the hops and is very "in your face." Pineapple, mango, and tangerine along with a solid bready malt base. Really a mouthwatering aroma. All of these wonderful characteristics continue over into the flavor. Tropical fruit immediately that just seems to spread across the mouth. There is a very juicy quality that I just love. Some light bread provides just enough malt to keep the hops balanced. High bitterness but not to the point of being overbearing or unpleasant. Mouthfeel is on the sticky and chalky side which I am not crazy about but it is a small price to pay. Overall, an absolutely amazing IPA out of Ohio that rivals the best coming out of California. I am so happy I found this beer and plan on picking up many more before heading back to TN.

Draft Clear and copper in color. Good lace. Light in the nose, full on the tongue. Really nice dry hop finish.

Bottle, pours a nice bright yellow, aroma is citrusy and the flavour is a nice lemon zest, well balanced, it had a nice bitterness to flavour ratio and it was yummy.

jercraigs (9722) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2012
2012-12-08. Crisp orange body with a small beige head. 3+ Modest hoppy aroma is lightly muddled, leafy green hops. Flavour is pretty hoppy, with leafy green hop undertones. Smooth average plus body. Nearly flat. Pretty decent but I suspect it is much better on tap. okay. On cask at Goodbar, Buffalo

HomelessDrew (26) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Pours orange with a small white head. Aroma is simcoe dank pine, with some citrusy hops. Taste is definitely hope forward with bitterness, but a bit sweeter than other west coast IPAs. Has average carbonation and a fairly light body. A very good Simcoe hop bomb, but a bit on the expensive side wherever Iíve seen it.
