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!

What a phenomenal IPA. I'd say it borders on a double. Big hop nose, big hop taste. Has a crisp, malt sweetness at the end without a heavy lingering bitterness. Everything in this is BIG, but awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours murky orange with thin white head that lingers. Sweet hop aroma over mild carbonation. Lemony hop citrus flavors with nice resin finish reasonable complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mverity (249) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2014
Pours a golden color with a hint of amber. Off white head that holds fairly well before fading into a medium collar and wisps of head across the surface. Fair lacing. Aroma is bold citrus (grapefruit and lemon) with some resiny pine and a bit of pineapple. Medium body and high carbonation with a good hop bite. Taste is complex. Grapefruit, pineapple, pine and floral hops all intermingle and compete for attention. The aftertaste is piney, grapefruit in the front. I had this with two weeks from bottling and the flavors were much more pronounced and played better. This was written from a 3.5 week old bottle.

stoutnick (386) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2014
On tap at Hunahpu Day 2014. Peachy colour. Aroma is classic IPA smell - hops. Taste is resinous bitterness, hops - bit one noteish and not particularly likeable. Finish is bite. Not a favourite but not awful.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of alexsdad06. Big thanks, Brad! Pours a copper appearance with a nice, cream colored head. Plenty of Northwest hops in the nose. Quite a bit of pine, grapefruit, and juicy citrus from the hops. Pretty malty and strong flavor. Some booze. Moderate to high bitterness. Some cracker and toast from the malt. Pretty juicy. Quite a bit of bitterness on the finish. Not my favorite style of IPA but this isnít all bad.

What a nose on this beer! Heavy pine, dankness with sweet, citrusy undertone. Pours a typical IPA amber color with about a finger of off white head. Taste follow tongue to a tee with a bit of pretzel-esque maltiness in the finish. One of my favorites.

This is a world class IPA for sure. Very well blended, some of the most upfront and long lasting hops I have tasted. Piney, grapefruit and juicy deliciousness are apparent! I really enjoyed this brew, happy I found it as I picked it up in Philadelphia, on my way back to NYC and I can not say how glad I am that I did! This is as good as almost anything out there. The overall hop profile was very impressive almost a bubble gum odor amongst the fruity aroma. Really good if you can get your hands on it. Ohio.. Who knew? Many IPAís that rate 95-100 on the RB list are imo over rated.. This one will not disappoint and lives up to its rep! I was lucky enough to get it super fresh 14 days old! Similar to like a Sculpin type IPA, but even better, and that is saying a lot!

12 ounce bottle into shaker pint glass at Inkwell Pub in Margate, Florida. The pour is mostly clear golden copper with a smallish white head. Nice lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is orange citrus, pine, resin bitterness and a nice base of toasted cereal grain malt. The taste is citrus (orange, lime, grapefruit) upfront, followed by pine bitterness and balanced with the malt. Crisp and fresh flavors. The palate is medium bodied, soft natural carbonation and a bitter finish with a hint of alcohol heat. Nice one, great recommendation from the bartender.

Poured from a 12oz bottle. Aroma is pine and grapefruit. Flavors are citrus, grapefruit, pine, and floral. Not much malt at all, very hop forward. Very nice Ipa. Itís a hop head Ipa thatís for sure.
