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.

pours a dirty golden color. Has an aroma of citrus and hops. Taste follows the aroma. Has strong notes of hops and citrus that remind me of a grapefruit. Leaves somes bitterness on the palate after the swallow. Overall, not to bad for an ipa.

Bottle from Kasey! Pours deep orange and approaching amber. Head is medium but quickly fades to a film. Nose is floral and contains an abundance of spicy and citrus hops mild supporting malt and possibly caramel malt aroma. Flavor is medium citrus tones with floral, spicy, light resinous, and bitter fruit rind flavors again supported with some bready and light caramel malts. Finishes medium dry with some pronounced bitterness. Nice beer but if I were to complain would have asked for more intense hop aroma.

Bottle:   Orangish caramel, thick and hazy, moderate to large frothy white head, sticky lacing.   Citrus oriented hop nose, slightly sweet, slightly bitter.   Moreso bitter on the tongue, a little rind and pith.   Not terribly bitter, thankfully enough maltiness to balance it out.   Well balanced, smooth, and flavorful.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Pithy finish.   Not a big IPA, but fairly well balanced with some moderate bitterness.   Thanks Ron for the bottle!

awesome dark orange. I love this color in an IPA. Nose is piney citrus, but not abrasive. The aroma carries into the taste as well, think pine lemon, and then bitters out on the back of the palette. A nice single hop IPA

Fresh bottle shared by Darrell. Thanks mang. The beer is copper orange and hazy with a half inch of soapy white head. The aroma does indeed bring a nice bouquet of hops. A touch of biscuits with a healthy bitterness in the finish. Decent flavor. Nothing wrong with this beer, but not anything to get excited about either. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A seemingly super-fresh bottle from StefanSD. Thanks! Uber clear, beautifully bright, ruddy copper pour. Gigantic seafoam head with exquisite lacing. Fresh tangerines and caramel malt are dominant in the aroma. Nice nuances of grapefruit and lime zest also show up in the appropriately bitter flavor. Definitely hops forward, but skillfully balanced by plenty of malty goodness. Medium body, great carb, superb mouthfeel, and a wonderfully dry finish. I am reminded of a honey-glazed orange/grapefruit upside-down cake garnished with lime leaves. Fantastic IPA.

pours bright gold with a thick white head. Aroma of bitter hops, in your face. Taste follows, bitter, crisp and refreshing. hides alcohol, makes it so easy to drink on a hot day

This is one of my favorite IPA ever. The aroma has a strong hop note with a hint of citrus. Taste amazing

Aroma is spicy and fruity. Pours a cloudy bright orangish gold with a medium head that has good retention. Taste is fruity followed by some malt and then a bitter and alcoholic finish. Its a solid beer but I’ve had better, maybe a bit one dimensional.

Very solid IPA. Reliably hoppy and bittersweet. This beer ranks among the Union Jacks and Just Outstandings of the world.
