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]

PardonMyNuts (6) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2015 does not count
Poured from bottle. Excellent aroma with hints of floral and citrus. For being "loaded" with hops it is well balanced with moderate bitterness and a surprising smoothness. Very nice, and very drinkable. Would recommend ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PartyFowle (304) - - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle. Shiny copper hue with a very slight haze. The head is lovely, a pillowy cap of pure white froth that sticks around for a long while. Crazy aroma -- a mix of citrusy and tropical hop notes like grapefruit, grass, mango, pineapple, maybe a bit of banana. Great balance, brilliant brightness. The flavor doesnít have as much kick, but those hop flavors are still discernible and perfectly balanced, as are the moderate bitterness and gentle honey sweetness. Very, very nice IPA.

Poured from bottle into a tulip: Pours golden amber with a one finger head. Aroma of pine, caramel, grass, and slight citrus. Bitter throughout the sip, slightly sweet caramel, lots of pine. Medium body, good carbonation, nice west coast style IPA.

acearl (409) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2015
From memory, on tap, darker golden hue, earthy pine smell with some hop citrus hues, more passion fruit but a great balance dry bitter and sweet malt but not overly sweet, very good worth going out of the way for
