COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hopheads crusade on a heroic quest for the holy grail of India Pale Ales. The subconscious composes paradisiacal scenes of malty waves crashing on a ripe lupulin landscape cascading hop flavors and aromas in profuse abundance. With humble confidence we offer this brew as fantasy made reality. Balanced in every detail and gushing resinous, exceptional citrus flavors and aromas that collaborate with soft bready notes surrendered from premium English golden malted barley, this beer is a tropical dreamscape. Epic.

Bottle pours hazy amber with a thin white head and lacing. Aromas of citrus, caramel, grapefruit, and hop resin. Flavor is mild bitter. Yum.

One of the best labels of all time. Love it. Hazy orange pour with a bit of a head. Lots of hoppy passion fruit on the nose, mango and yum. A bit low on the carb for my taste. Dry, bitter finish. Quite nice.

Medium dark golden, finger cream white head. Smells of pine, citrus, slight chemical, savory, rye. Taste is a candy sweet malt beneath a spicy rye/cocoa like hop, a tad savory, pine. The sweetness almost reminds of a candy shell of an m&m. Has some darker malt like tastes than most IPA's. Interesting flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2015 bottle. Exactly as advertised. The subconscious composes paradisiacal scenes of malty waves crashing on a ripe lupulin landscape cascading hop flavors and aromas in profuse abundance. Balanced in every detail and gushing resinous, exceptional citrus flavors and aromas that collaborate with soft bready notes surrendered from premium English golden malted barley. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Karben4 Fantasy Factory IPA has a thin, off-white head, an initially clear, golden-orange appearance, which gets very murky, once the brown sludge at the bottom of the bottle is swished and poured in. The aroma is of tropical fruit, hop resin, flower nectar, and rather intense hop resin. Taste is of sweet, white bread, sugar crystals, lightly browned bread crust, hop oil, and pine. Mouthfeel is medium, and Karben4 Fantasy Factory IPA finishes dry and drinkable. RJT

AndyReynolds (1081) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Bottle. The aroma is great citrus hop. Strong grapefruit and slight grass / pine too. Great example of regular IPA.

doubelknv3 (1080) - Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Cloudy, Amber, white head, and mild lacing. Citrus, orange, mild lemon, and caramel aroma. Full bodied, great balance, medium bitterness, creamy quaff, and lemony lasting notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nimbleprop (7006) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 12, 2015
On tap at Paul’s Club pours a hazy orange with some lacing white head. Nose has candy, citrus, some perfume, almost lilac, mild resin. Flavor is sweet and fruity, oddly chalky, orange, heavy flower pollen, malt. All of the hop is back seat to the sweet/floral notes. Almost powdery finish.

Chudwick (2709) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Offered by the transitory AndyReynolds - pine-y and citrus nose. Nice balance upfront but strong bitter finish. Refeshing after an afternoon of moving shtuff. Well rounded.
