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 thanks to jmikolich, pours a clear bright copper with a small khaki head. Aroma of earthy resinous pine, woody pencil shavings, citrus, tropical fruits, with bready and caramel malt. Taste of sweet fruits and heavy resinous pine, sweet biscuit caramel malts, and a refreshing bitterness all the way through. From drinking would not have guessed this to be 7.5% abv. So damn good!!

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.

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.
