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!

12oz bottle via trade on BA. pours a gorgeous, clear, copper tinted gold capped by a dense, rocky, white head that leaves thick sheets of lace. aroma is amazing with huge, herbal, dank, resinous hops backed by heavy grapefruit, orange zest, apricots, and canned pineapple with hints of sweet caramel malts and honeysuckle as it opens up. flavor is outstanding as well with a big punch of bitter, resinous, piney hops up front that are balanced by orange peel, lemons, pink grapefruit, and prickly hints of peach, pear skins, and white grapes. palate is medium bodied with perfect carbonation and a dry, bitter, fruity hop finish. overall, an outstanding ipa that i wish i could get on a daily basis.

HoppityHop (187) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2015
Drinkable and well balanced IPA with low carbonation. Definitely lives up to the hype. Flavorful hop presence without being over powering. Leaves a beautiful lacing in the glass, if you care about things like that? Good stuff!

Pours a beautiful, fluffy big head, with a vibrant yellow-amber color. Smells irresistable lemony, very juicy, coated up by toffeeish, balancing malts. Citrus mingles together with dried orange peel outstandingly well, creating a crisp, lemon defined hoppy nose. Has a medium carbonation with an extremely crisp and dry, refreshing mouthfeel. Taste mirrors the nose, as it begins with toasty, biscuity malts, as well as bitter, luscious lemons hitting the palate in an uncompromising, fruity fashion. The beers intense lemony hop profile gets enhanced by a mineralic bubbly carbonation, revealing a grassy dryness. This dryness leads to the brews finish, in which the profound lemon character even gets enhanced by a prominent, bitter, lime infused dry note as well as slick sweeter malts, unleashing a very focused lemon fruitiness. Easy drinking ipa with a great hoppiness to it, gently balanced by sweeter, flavorwise fitting malts, leaving the beers spotlight on the fruity hops flavors.

This was at the Portland, OR pub at the RBSG. Poured orange with a big white head. Nose of tropical fruit and citrus. Medium body and and a resinous mouth feel. Flavor is a blast of tropical fruit with lots of the citrus. Finish is very much tasty hops. Great beer. I loved this one.
