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.

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.

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

Thanks, Aaron! Nice orange/amber pour with a finger of beige head and sticky lacing. Fresh grapefruit and tangerine hop aromas. Sweet bread, floral hops, and pine. The flavor is moderately bitter with some pine and citrus peel notes. Nice grapefruit and tangerine, floral hops, bread, and a strong pine finish. Really nice stuff!

16oz can from Trukpro! Pours a crystal clear copper color with an eggshell head. Aroma has some dank hops along with some citrus and tropical notes and finally some pine. Taste is sweet with a pretty strong malt backbone and some juicy citrus hops. Medium bodied with the carbonation pricking the tongue. The finish becomes gradually more bitter with some light herbal notes that linger. Pretty stellar IPA.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2013
pint can as a nice extra from my buddy deftim. thanks, tim! pours a clear, pale gold capped by a fluffy, dense white head that leaves soapy rings of lace. aroma is great with big citrus notes of lemon zest, oranges, limes, and white grapefruit backed by pine resins, grass, and subtle, sweet florals. flavor is absolutely excellent with a blast of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, and pear skins up front backed by a hefty dose of bitter hop resins, grass, herbs, and biscuits. palate is medium bodied with smooth carbonation and a great, dry, bitter finish. overall, a definite world class ipa and i dig the pint can.

Can. Thanks to adnielsen for sending. Pours a orange color with white head. Big, fresh hop, citrus, pineapple aromas. Citrus, piney, resiny, hoppy flavors. Along with Bells Two Hearted, this is one of the best IPAs I’ve had. Balanced, with a really nice hoppy flavor, but not too hoppy.

badhack (313) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Served out of large sized can into a glass. Sold in a 4 pack with canning date stickered on the top. Pours a dark honey color with a creamy head. Smell is hops, hops, hops. Taste is hops. Bitter and citrus but smooth and balanced. I notice also a small amount of pepper/spice. There is probably malt in here but it will be a moment before the hops wears off. After that happens a delicious malt comes to the fore. This is a delicious beer and it has a respectable alcohol content so makes for a nice, long drink.

Can thanks to Justin. Big pine nose. Lots of aroma. Taste is hops, grapefruit, slight honey sweetness. This pretty much lives up to reputation. Very good.

4 Cans from my man Sam (ketchepillar)

Pours a bright orangish golden with a big head and lots of nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma has a lot of fresh hop character, citrus, melon (fruit forward hops) and some nice mild spicy hops as well.

The flavor is spicy and plenty bitter with a mild touch of malt toastiness. Loads of Melon and citrus rind hoppness are the primary focus of the flavor. A light piney character is there as well. The beer is markedly dry and wholly delicious.
