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.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 6/7/2016. Pours slightly hazy golden yellow color with a nice 2 finger dense off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of huge grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of dank citrus/tropical/pine hops and light-moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Large amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange rind, pine, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish with a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dank citrus/tropical/pine hops and light-moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and minimal astringent hop flavors lingering after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness, that increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and lightly creamy/grainy mouthfeel that is awesome. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is an insane IPA as expected. All around incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dank citrus/tropical/pine hops and light-moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. An insanely amazing offering all around.

Bottle. Pours golden amber with off-white had. Aroma is sweet fruity orange grapefruit piney. Taste is Taste is sweet malty hoppy with a piney grapefruit finish. Very well balanced with hoppy finish and good, however my preference is the less malty IPAs.

solidfunk (7235) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 1, 2016
Lots of citrus in this and a very nice malt backbone. Bitter finish. Bigger body here than most of the other hop bombs Ive had tonight. Good, but certainly not a 100/100 beer. Tap at city tap house.

Super solid ipa. Very fresh tasting with solid balance. Itís got the whole double ipa hops without the double ipa commitment to being hungover via 13% behemoth beer. I like it a lot.
