COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Did someone ask for hops? Tired of beers that promise a full lupulin experience, but never deliver more than richly malted bitterness? It’s no secret that this is what we excel at. We’ve been brewing world class IPAs for years. Our flagship is the culmination of a decades worth of studying and brewing. Take a step above and acclimate to what an IPA should be.

TURDFERGUSON (3963) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Pint cans, RBWG, thanks Erway for brewing and sending these! Pours a hazy yellow orange with a steady fizzy white head, good lace throughout. I really like this beer. Its less aggressive than many of the tasty ipa’s coming out these days, but the nose and flavor are still right where I want them to be. Lots of citrus, floral, light tropical notes. Very nice balance that leans on the hoppy side but as I said, not as aggressive and has a nice soft carbonation. Lovely.

jbruner (2422) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 24, 2013
UPDATED: APR 2, 2014 Can from RBWG. Pours a clear copper from the can with fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave thin lace. Aroma of funky west coast hops, piney and resinous, catty. Taste follows, but more mellow as you drink more and a drinkable balance. Mellow carbonation, no real bitterness, but still really hoppy, good stuff.

16 ounce can. Thanks Tom! Pours a clear orange/gold with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and grass. Taste is grapefruit, oranges, lemons, pine, spices, and caramel. A very nice IPA!

16 oz can to taster at RBWG. Looks good; orange with sticky white lacing. Smells and tastes good too; nicely hopped with citrus notes. Good on the palate. An excellent example of the style.

Very dank juicy grapefruit IPA here. Finishes with strong bitterness and pine sap and some citrus. Great flavorful IPA.

wheresyourball (517) - El Cajon, California, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Picked up a can in a trade; poured into a tulip glass. Hazy orange color with medium to large head. Nose is hops, citrus, fruit; taste is balanced sweet fruit and bitter hops, with some malt. Medium bodied. Surprisingly very good.

Scouser (257) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Pours a golden colour with good white lacing. Aroma is out of this world one of the most floral beers I have had. It smells of lavender and rose great smelling beer. Taste of lavender, rose, orange, grapefruit. This is a very nice beer. Thanks to Tim at Pinocchio's, Media PA for letting us tap into his personal stash! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
