COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bitter and bold. This single hop american style IPA features 100 percent Columbus Hops for an intense citrus, floral and spicy aroma and flavor. Five different malts form the rich backbone that balances the hops’ 77 IBUs. The resinous mouthfeel is followed by a clean, dry hopped finish that refreshes and satisfies. Additional Information: Delve into this beer and you are going to see the complexities that this highly hopped beer has to offer. Grapefruit, orange, lemon, and flower essences are just a few flavors/aromas you are sure to find.

tkrjukoff (3896) - SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a great beigish head leaving lace. Aroma is hop forward citric piny and fruity as is the flavor, well bitter indeed and it seems to stay forever.

drpimento (2098) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Hop bomb. Poured slightly chilled with gigantic, foamy, frothy, cream-colored head that lasts all the way down and lots of clingy lace. Color is a nice, clear amber with loads of bubble trails. Aroma is a blend of hop, barnyard, yeast, malt. Flavor is totally dominated by hop; very bitter with a little malt coming at the end. Carbonation is ok, but body is confused by the intense bitter. Thank goodness for that smidgen of malt. Finish is like flavor, super long, and off flavors courtesy of hop. Also a little boozy.

22oz bottle pours a hazy, burnt orange with some cloudy, white head. Nose of pine, spruce, grapefruit, malt, caramel, orange, soap. Flavor is well balanced, malty, toasted bread, orange, pine, grapefruit, spruce, soap. Full, sticky finish.

Excellent hoppy smell, smooth malty taste behind the bitterness. Not too bitter while drinking, but stays around a little bit too long afterwards. Unbearable after 4 ounces.

SDalkoholic (2089) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Created a vigorous sizing of fluffy foam head while the liquid was a hazy glowing golden honey color. The aroma is bold with a heavy dosage of floral green hops that ooze citrus while a grassy aroma lurks in the background. The flavor is initially bitter with the taste of hops that has an organic raw honey and spicy profile to it but there is also a sweet taste of malts that actually convinced me this beer was actually interesting. Sort of reminds me of a west coast pale ale recipe I brewed at home once.

dhunter151 (467) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Pours amber with a white head. Very nice hop aroma. Citrus, floral, some pine but more fruity. Malt is noticeable but not overdone. Pretty well balanced and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUN 5, 2013
22oz bottle, purchased at BeerCraft. Pours a generally clear, orange-amber color; off-white head with modest retention and solid lacing. Earthy, floral, and orange-y hop character in the nose; slightly vegetal; some sugary sweetness. Medium-full body; fine-bubbled carbonation; grassy, citrusy, slightly vegetal IPA with a fair bit of core sweetness; alcohol levels keep things lean, but still not a great IPA. Lasting orange bitterness, alcohol, quiet sweetness.

jredmond (5025) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle from Windy City shared with Pat, Sean, Tony and Dan. Pours an amber body with nice thick off white head. Aroma is super caramel, sweet malty bread and light citrus hop. Mouthfeel is medium, super sweet but still holding somewhat of a hop profile - just a bit on the sweet side now. I would love to try this offering fresh and/or on draft.
