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; thanks Tom!! Pours clear orange with foamy white head; dank nose of pineapples, mangos and a little pine resin; wow, just a killer fruity nose; light texture with raw white sugar, pine resin, oranges and healthy does of bitterness; more grapefruity bitters in the flavor compared to the pineapples, mango in the nose; minor raw garlic in the finish; great stuff

Small tasting/gathering last night of Seattle Beer Week 2010
Orange in color, clear with a thin head. Tons of fruity hop and a good malt backing. This was a tasty treat. Lots of interesting flavors with the added garlic and the garlic finish. Thanks MikeTD for bringing this to us.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2010 Fresh growler from Fatheadís in Pittsburgh. A-pours a hazy golden honey color with a pretty tight creamy white head. S-notes of malt but very faint, lots of hops! light pine, grassy herbal hops, hints of tangerine and grapefruit in the back. T-the taste is so hoppy and nice. virtually no malt, awesome hop presence. piney up front, notes of caramel and brown sugar maltiness makes its only appearance. grassy hops in the middle with grapefruit taking over in the back with a nice present bitterness. M-this is extremely smooth on the palate, nice carbontion holds a lighter medium body, dry in the back with a hint of crispness. D-this is a huge hop lovers IPA, which I am. very tasty, nice balance of flavors that work really well together. by far fatheadís best offering!

On tap. Poured a clear pale gold with a white head that laced nicely. Aroma was full of strong hops with a bit of underlying grassy as well. Flavor had a combination of three hop flavors, grass, pine and citrus. The pine was by far the most dominant.

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.
