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.

Dogbrick (11513) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a slightly murky orange-amber color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of tropical fruit, hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of citrusy hops, toasted malt and pine. The finish is fruity with a pineapple and hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

deyholla (10003) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 8, 2015
On tap. Pours a clear orangish gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has lots of pine and resin with a touch of bitter citrus and a grain backbone. Flavor is bitter and resinous throughout with pine, citrus and a hint of onion underlying.

BVery (9574) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Tap at Karben4. One of my new favorite IPAs. Citrusy and tropical fruit juiciness. Nice malt backing. Easy drinking and tons of flavor. Just an excellent brew.

nimbleprop (7495) - 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.

Strykzone (6720) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Sampler at the brewpub. Very hazed dingy golden. A nice off white layer of foam leaves cool lacing. Lots of grapefruit here but it is not overly bitter. Syrupy fruit. Good stuff. Malts are very much in the background and the hops take spotlight smoothly.
