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!

Thanks again MikeTD this was awesome. Pours a honey toned body with a light off white head. Grassy floral hop notes, sweet pine and citrus notes. An earth maryjane like earthiness. Green and grass with a dry mid bodied herbal-ness. Great stuff.

Growler shared by Rciesla at BT> POurs a nice hazy bright orange copper with a thin lasting sticky white head. Aroma is mango citrus, light garlic hint, herbal and light grass with some pine notes- very light on the malts just light cracker and slight carapils. Flavor is also skewed mostly towards citrus and light dank hops with some tropical notes, orange and mango dominate with a grassy fresh floral note and tacky hop bitterness in the end- finish is quite dry. Very nice IPA!

I have no idea who gave me this but I remember having it. Its not a very fair rating but I recollect this being really good. Enjoyed some where near the port a pissers at DLD. Kinda goldish color, strong aromas of pine and citrus. Hope to try this again sometime to give it a fair and semi realistic rating.

TheAlum (5687) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2010
Guest draft on tap at DLD. Pours a solid hazy amber hue, a bit glowing, nice bright white head dies to a solid film, laces ok. Aromas are nice, solid hops with heavy citrusy grapefruit, lemon, a faint orange with a touch of pine, florals, underneath caramel, pale bready malts mix. Initial is medium bodied, heavy hops with more pine and floral, citrusy fruits tangle with pale malts, some decent caramel and toffee. A touch of peppery spice, very hop forward and a great presence on the palate. Finish solid bitterness lingering of pine and florals.

Ughsmash (7124) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2010
Growler at DLD. Poured clear medium golden with a short cap of white head. The aroma picked up juicy floral and pineapple notes over a citrus meat and lesser pale base.. nice and tropical in nature. The flavor was juicy again with more floral and pineapple notes leading.. grapefruit joined in through the finish.. there was enough maltage to support, and it worked well in the background. Slick feel on the palate with grainy bitterness on the finish.. smelled and tasted great, but only flowed OK.

Courtesy miketd. Growler. Orange/gold/copper, white carbonation. Take 2 Hearted and add a touch of west coast juiciness and couple dank nugs and you get this. Medium body, balanced, dry, easy to drink. World class IPA.
