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!

phaleslu (6812) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Draft at Moerlein Lager House. Pours a clear orange-hued golden color with a small eggshell-white head. Nice immediate pop in the aroma- orange and grapefruit citrus, tropical fruits (mango, papaya), fresh cut herbs, and sweet malts. The flavor starts the same but loses a little of the initial character as it warms and becomes increasingly bitter along the way. Lots of citrus peel, which dominates the malts and more nuanced hop characteristics. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bitter, fruity mouthfeel. Overall, very solid IPA that Iíd like to try again and canít believe I havenít had before.

Iíve had this on draft and in the bottle, both are exceptional. Very well balanced earth/citrus blend. I must admit that this brew hides the ABV quite well.

On draught at Fat Headís Portland. Golden color. Aroma is pine and bitter citrus. Hop bomb flavors, with the pine, grapefruit, and orange. Good balance of sweet malt for all the hoppiness.

Tastes like Iím licking a tree. Got as a gift. Awful. Would rather get run over by a truck than consume one of these again.

Pours a Merky golden color. Nice thick foamy head. Aroma of grapefruit. Tastes is hoppy, grapefruit, crisp. Not an IPAD guy but, this is pretty good.

deaconmike (399) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - NOV 17, 2014
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.

raphael (915) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 4, 2014
On tap at Barrel House in Gibsonia PA. Full flowery woodsy aroma. Hops almost harsh, resiny with lemon peel. Dry on the palate. yellow with slight orange tinge, thin white head.

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
