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!

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!

Salmoniform (536) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Golden hue with fizzy white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is orange, melon, pine, citrus oil, grassy, straw. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and zesty carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with a nice bitterness that extends into the finish. Overall this is a nice IPA.

Strong pine hop aroma. Gold, clear appearance with a white head. Flavor is full of piney hops and slight caramel. Bitterness is clean. Body is medium light and carbonation is medium. Overall it's a great tasting clean ipa. If you enjoy piney hops you will enjoy this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not really a piney hop ipa fan, but I do have to say this one is enjoyable. Not good enough that I would buy it again but I can finish a bottle at the least ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear dark golden color with off white head. Big pine and citrus aromas. Pine resin and bitter grapefruit flavors with a hint of malt. Medium body with average carbonation. Good stuff.

Love this. Lots of hops but west coast citrus makes it not too bitter. 87 ibu and only 7.5abv is pretty impressive. Hop heads will love it too but definitely not a starter for newbies.

This is so good..like nuts good. The aroma blew me away. I immediately got tons of like white grape juice. I have no clue why but white grape juice just hit me in the face. Then some peach and pineapple juice. Different than most of the IPA’s I have. Taste is perfect. Just super fresh like fruit juice with some intense bitterness just awesome stuff, highly recommend it.

12 oz bottle at Gateway Grill in Monroeville, PA. Orange-gold with a small but very sturdy white head. The aroma is all resun and pineapple. The flavour brings more diverse citrus notes, such as mandarin, to go with the aforementioned flavours. Theflavour is big and hits you iimmediately. The hopping is done to perfestion, with the bitterness hitting right after the flavours have established themselves, and lingering through the finish. There is enough malt to keep the hps from being overwhelming. A very well constructed beer.

Bottle, from my Summer Secret Santa. Golden pour with a slushy looking white head. Smells really good, lots of piney hops. A great beer I didn’t know existed until yesterday. Thanks to my Secret Santa!
