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!

Bottle. This is an IPA. The bitterness, herbal taste that one would expect. No fruit, just straight in your face IPA.

Found this at an ABC store in FL. Pours clear Amber with an offwhite head. Juicy hop aroma - tropical fruit. Intensely bitter with malt backing. Getting lots of that tropical fruit on the tongue. Medium body. Very nice ipa.

Hoppy for sure. Not a lot of head on it. Donít think my palate is developed enough for the citrus and pine.

Draft in fl. Smells wonderful. Definite full IPA taste, slightly over the top aftertaste. Lots of body. Not for non IPA drinkers.. but damn good

Bottle. Pours golden orange with a small white head. Aroma was hoppy with citrus, grapefruit and pine. Flavor was sweet and bitter with citrus zest, pine, grapefruit, a bit of caramel and some orange peel. Medium body, soft carbonation, bitter dry finish.

Bule (823) - California, USA - OCT 19, 2014
12oz bottle pours a yellow Amber color with very little head. Aroma of onions, but perhaps this is just very intense pininess. The hop bitterness is intense and overpowers the rest of the brew.

thedm (4963) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 19, 2014
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent light and an excellent lacing. The sharp aroma was citrus and hoppy. The sharp crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The sharp flavor contained notes of bitter semi-sweet mild nut citrus burnt malt crisp and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.
