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 shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike! The beer appears transparent and orange in color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. The aroma has a pleasant citrus scent, along with some floral and tropical fruit notes. Very tasty stuff. Really easy to drink, Fresh hop presence throughout, with various flavors melding together nicely. The beer finishes with a tangy bitterness and lingers on the palate. Alcohol presence is muted, but this beer will sneak up on you if youíre not careful. I would happily drink this again. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 03-12-2011

Great IPA! Very hoppy aroma. Body is fairly light, alcohol not noticeable, esp. for a 7.5% beer. Tropical fruit-like hop character, some medium crystal malt. Bitter, but not too. No discernible yeast character. Enjoyable--you will want another!

DoublEE (782) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2013 An onslaught of luscious tastes sail over my taste buds. This West Coast child sports sappy resin, strong bitter grapefruit as suggested in the nose, and a strong bitter aftertaste that leaves behind a solid dry spot, calling for another sip. Citrus fruits of orange and pineapple sneak in with repeated sips. Very hoppy but wonít repel the tongue with an overeager attack. A complex yet simple, straightforwardly enjoyable IPA.

12oz bottle thanks to pellegjr - thanks man! Pours copper orange with thin bright white head. Aroma is a full-on assault of tropical fruit: pineapple, grapefruit, mango, sweet mandarins - wonderful. Lots of pine resin in there too. Taste is a delicious mix of pine, grapefruit, and pineapple - pure hop hedonism. Light caramel malt notes in the background; fantastic dryness in the finish, great lasting bitterness. Cracker of an IPA.

12 oz. bottle currently, multiple drafts at Pittsburgh location previously. Poured hazy orange with white head. Tons of lacing and fine sediment floating in glass. Nose is grassy with floral notes. Juicy citrus fruit flavor at first, backed by a resinous, piney, moderately bitter finish. Medium bodied. A real solid IPA, and dare I say sessionable? Very pleased to see that production of this one has been ramped up.

Bottle, c/o Summer Secret Santa 2012 (alexsdad06). Pours clear coppery orange with a 2-finger creamy beige head. Huge mango and papaya aroma, with sweet pine sap and citrus rind. Incredibly fresh, sweet hops. The flavor is sweet fresh-cut pine, spruce, and citrus rind (orange, grapefruit). Aggressive citrus and pine finish. Medium carbonation and body, a bit warming, and very drinkable. Very damn good. Thanks! [1097]
