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.

Double sample flight@source during FMG delegation visit 5ix13. Supremely balanced and even suave mild IPA with enough exotic citrus bouquet and some biscuit body to keep the palate entertained as it easily gulps down. Pleasant, rather than epic.

Had this on draft at the Tipsy Cow in Madison, WI. Jet black pour with thick brown head. Super rich taste, very chocolatey. Has a great hop taste to it also. Very good local brew

Braudog (5743) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Draft at the brewpub. Hazy golden beer. Sends off a dirty citrus aroma and drinks with a sticky, orange/tropical fruit flavor profile. Quite nice and very drinkable. (#5107, 7/2/2013)

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2013 Well since I entered this one I guess I better write it some kind of rating. Had on tap at the brewery, piney in the smell and taste. Not really the kind of hops I like but it was pretty decent. I also hear they have changed the recipe recently and it is better now. Edit: way better the second time I had this, I think they changed the hops they were using, much more citrus now.
