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!

Pours a dark gold with a huge fluffy white head. Nice lacing. Sweet malt, orange peel, grapefruit, and tropical fruit aromas. Similar flavors with a strong resinous bitterness at the beginning that fades towards a more fruity citrus flavor. The finish is fairly dry leaving just a slight hoppy bitterness on the back of the tongue. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and moderate to high level of carbonation. This is a very good IPA.

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.

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.

Had this one near the end of World of Beer Fest, and it still wasnít very good. Too much hops and not enough pine or citrus.

Draft at Fat Head PDX. RBSG. Wtf am I doing order a whole glass? This is RBSG, gotta step up my game. Next stop, man, next stop. Clear amber pour, small ring of white head. Aroma: fresh and hoppy. Pine and citrus, caramel backing is fully featured, balanced, still finishes dry. I see why this has such a following -- itís full flavored, with medium+ body, smooth creamy texture. Assertively bitter but not at all harsh, framed against a lovely malt backdrop. Pretty darned tasty beer. Iím no longer disappointed that I ordered a full glass.

Lukasmh (485) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2015
Bottle. Pours a beautiful clear golden with white head. Aroma is so hoppy and resinous! Underneath there is a great malty body. Grapefruit, citrus, sligt grass and mandarin tang. Taste hits you as a APA with great malt profile and smote mouthfeel, then it turns super bitter and hoppy! Loads of citrus and long really bitter resinous finish. Smooth yet dry body. Some orange in there as well as grapefruit.

cobaink2 (171) - seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Copper color. Tastes of hoppy goodness with grapefruit, orange and som every dank hops. Itís leans towards the double IPA style with the complex hops in this. Really drinkable.

Tap at whole foods, Pours a crisp bright citrus color. Nice white finger of head. The nose pops with Grate fruit, orange, pine, plenty of hope. The taste is classic IPA bold, bright, crisp, very west coast feel.

Been wanting to try this one for years. Glad it finally found its way my way. Orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some very nice tropical fruit notes as well as some biscuit malt. The flavor is similar. There is a great bit of pineapple and resin, as well as some biscuit. Medium bitterness. Everything about this IPA goes perfectly, making it an exceptional drinker. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
