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!

12 oz. bottle poured to a pint glass. Clear yellow tint with a nice fluffy white head....good amount of carbination. Strong citrus aroma, grapefruit, orange zest, pineapple. Taste is a hop bomb...flavors of pine, grapefruit, orange with a bitter bite at the end. Good flavor profile with a balance between bitter and sweet. An enjoyable IPA that I was looking forward to trying. It lived up to the high scores. Very good IPA.

Poured from bottle into a tulip: Pours golden amber with a one finger head. Aroma of pine, caramel, grass, and slight citrus. Bitter throughout the sip, slightly sweet caramel, lots of pine. Medium body, good carbonation, nice west coast style IPA.

acearl (403) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2015
From memory, on tap, darker golden hue, earthy pine smell with some hop citrus hues, more passion fruit but a great balance dry bitter and sweet malt but not overly sweet, very good worth going out of the way for

jb (2372) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 11, 2015
Really heavy citrus nose with a bit of pine and toffee. Clear, orange, some retention. Resinous mouthfeel, with the pine up front, then a bit of citrus and it really mellows out. Hop forward indeed. Thanks for the trade Ron.

Ron (2826) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle Erica brought back from Ohio. Pours a clear orange in color with a finger of white head that leaves a small amount of lacing. Aroma has a great citrus scent, along with some floral and tropical fruit notes. Flavor is fresh citrus hops throughout. Finishes with a tangy bitterness and lingers on the palate. Alcohol is very well hidden. Delicious.

Typical American hop aroma. Great color with a thin head. Bitter up front with sine sweetness. I would have liked this beer a bit drier. Good ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
