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!

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Bottle, c/o Summer Secret Santa 2012 (alexsdad06). Pours clear coppery orange with a 2-finger creamy beige head. Huge mango and papaya aroma, with sweet pine sap and citrus rind. Incredibly fresh, sweet hops. The flavor is sweet fresh-cut pine, spruce, and citrus rind (orange, grapefruit). Aggressive citrus and pine finish. Medium carbonation and body, a bit warming, and very drinkable. Very damn good. Thanks! [1097]

Smells like a lot of grapefruit and tropical citrus. Light hopyness with a citrus flavor, backed by a light malt body. Very easy drinking IPA

60minuteman (906) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Hoppy, fruity aroma. Cascade and Simcoe definitely recognizable (I think). Pineapple, grapefruit, citrus. So much fruit in an IPA. Bitter finish, medium carbonation, the perfect balance. So delicious.

Tap at shamrock. Bright yellow gold with lively carbonation that leads to a great white head that lasts. Big pine floral hop aroma. Flavor is well balanced between pine hops and sweet cracker malts. Not a beer for the hop adverse but a treasure for those who do.

Mr_Abner (44) - Michigan, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear golden orange. Smells delicious! -- Tropical fruit, pine, pineapple; on the verge of dank. Taste to me is all about the hops, though there is a nice malt backbone that allows all of the flavor hops to shine. Medium bitterness. Medium bodied. Extremely solid IPA.

nuplastikk (4747) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Tap at Fat Heads. Top notch IPA. Modern feel thanks to the Simcoe, and the Cascade and Columbus round it out. Filtered golden orange body. Foamy off-white head. Fresh, big hop tones. Great balance. Excellent.

cbfobes (2597) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2015
On tap at 2014 GTMW, been waiting awhile to try this one, pours a hazy amber orange with a thick white head and lots of lacing, the aroma has a ton of citrus and tropical fruit on the nose, mango and pineapple over flow from the glass, the flavor has a bright hop and fruit front end with a crisp finish of citrus and fruit, mouthfeel was pretty awesome, wow.

RRistow12 (315) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear Amber with white head. Nice strong citrus aroma with a little pine. Even some tropical fruits. Taste is a nice clean consistent bitterness with a malt backbone. Moderately heavy bitterness with a mild to moderate sweetness. Flavors of grapefruit, orange, tropical fruits, pine, caramel. Definitely a top tier IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sarlacc83 (1014) - Oregon, USA - DEC 29, 2014
On tap at PDX location. A: Semi - clear orange color, whispy white head, some lacing. N: Pineapple, biscuit, pine, toffee, some grapefruit and mango. Balanced between citrus and earth. T: Drying bitterness, good sweetness underneath. M: Resinous, medium body. Prickly carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden. O: A mighty fine IPA. Great balancing act though itís not any thing you havenít had before. Prefer Hop Venom, but would drink this anytime.

Pours pretty golden clear, low amounts of head. Some hops and citrus in taste. An enjoyable beer. Had on tap and from a bottle.
