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!

Growler generously shared at the RBSG grand tasting. Pours a bright orange. Tropical aroma of peach and grapefruit. Flavor is a great blend of caramel, peach, and perfume. Boozy with a balance of juicy sweetness and bitterness. Really good.

Orange pour with a watery white head and lace. Huge aroma of resiny hops and caramel malt. Sweet caramel, bread, and resiny hops. Medium body with good carbonation. A nicely balanced beer for me.

I have had this on tap at the out-standing brewery and in bottle. I recommend a trip to the brewery. The pour is nice orange hued yellow. A medium white head sits nicely on top. The aroma is sharp sharp pine with mild floral notes. The flavor is exactly what the aroma promises. big hop flavor, with sharp pine, mild citrus. The finish is sharp. Excellent beer.

This is one of the top IPAs I have enjoyed. The award winning ale was enjoyed at the brewery in Cleveland on Derby day 2011. The place was packed on a Saturday night. I found a seat at the bar and enjoyed this one slowly. The complex hops flavors of three varieties. Th citrus and pine nuts were all blended together. They were balanced with a perfect ABV of 7.5%. The lacing down the glass and the atmosphere of the brewery was a memorable experience. The smooth finish leaving you with the bitterness that is IPA alone.

On tap at Fat Heads in Cleveland. Pours a nice gold to light copper color with a nice white head and a good amount of lacing. Nice retention as well. The nose brought forward a large amount of hops ranging from citrus to floral to tropical. Altogether a really nice package from a mixed back of hops. I canít recall them at the moment, but there was a sign on the wall that seemed to indicate the hops used in this one. The flavor hit the spot as well with a nice hop character coming through as the dominant character and a good, brisk finish. A bit of alcohol in the finish, though not too much. Terribly drinkable. I wish this were available locally and werenít quite as high in ABV. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 02-25-2011
