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!

reggiedunlop (3451) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Pours clear golden honey/lt amber with a medium white head...bright with decent lacing and retention. Aroma has lots of grapefruit and some mild hoppy spice. Flavor is more piney...still a bit of grapefruit and spice. Mouthfeel is light/medium with a dry piney bitter finish.

aleigator (470) - GERMANY - JUL 31, 2015
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.

Tap at Mad Mex, Monroeville, Pa. Ordered alongside a brew dog Citra ipa. Server may have mixed up the drinks. Pours golden orange, creamy white head. Aroma is of tropical fruits, tangerine, candied orange, fairly citrusy. Flavor is hop forward, orange, lemon, some mild caramel malt. Solid.

matty (257) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear dark gold color with a thin white head that settles to a film leaving some lacing. Plenty of carbonation rising. Aroma I of strong citrus and a little malt in the background. Medium body, taste is of malt and citrus hops which are in the front. Slightly dry finish, the grapefruit hops linger after the swallow. Theyíre doing this right!

Cloudy yellow pour with bright citrus and pine notes. Bitter with a great malt backbone and bitter finish. Very well blended.

Best combination of hops and malt ever. Canít get over the citrusy hoppiness! I prefer the draft version for fuller flavor. Uncivilized and aggressive doesnít begin to describe the palate delight. If you drink any other beers, do them first, this beer overwhelms other beers. WOW!

jflopsu (827) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Pours a light rust orange. Has a strong citrus and floral hop aroma. A nice balanced taste of citrus and florla hops, pine, light fruit, caramel and malts. A balanced aftertaste of bitter citrus hops and sweet malts.

DocJitsu (1267) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2015 Pours a clear, classic golden color with a rich, dull white, bumpy head. Rich malty nose with a hint of citrus. Full, smooth mouth feel with a bit of carbonation on the back of the palate. The flavor has an eggy quality, some crŤme brŻlťe, some cooked honey, and pine. Iím tempted to say this beer has been on the shelf too long, but it says it was bottled on April 6, 2015. Iím drinking on July 9, 2015. But it seems to drastically lost its hop character.

Oakes (13538) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2015
Draft @ Funky Buddha Boca. Hazy amber, medium head. Fairly assertive, somewhat woody hop nose. Veers on dank. Lots of bitterness, but itís not super bright. Has a bit chewy character.

craven5000 (107) - Westville, Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Heavy citrus/grapefruit aroma. Transparent bubbling golden body under a tall white head. Thin feel. Hits hard with grapefruit zest and that is about all there is to this one.
