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!

Apparently this batch experimented with a liquid hop extract so itís not as potent as other reports. Nice pine sol on the nose. Pours clear yellow from tap with a thin white head. Grapefruit and pinesol on the tongue without much bitterness. Clean finisher. Good version of the style but not as out there as I was expecting.

Much thanks to whoever brought this growler to RBSG. Pours out a a moderate golden color with not much of a head. Aroma is intense pine, and some citrus, with light malt in there. Taste is tons of resiny pine, citrus and an overall nice bitterness with only slight malt balance. Very tasty IPA.
