Did someone ask for hops? Tired of beers that promise a full lupulin experience, but never deliver more than richly malted bitterness? Itís no secret that this is what we excel at. Weíve 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.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2015 At GABF. Big sweet hops flavor, almost like roasted map led. Great West Coast IPA. World class. (Updated in July, 2015: Aroma of pine resin. Flavor is huge piney caramel. Sweet, roasty and wonderful.)

PhillyCraft (4541) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Fresh can, pours hazy copper orange with medium to large white head, good lace. Aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, dank pine, and resin. Flavor is most of the same with skunky hops and lots of tropical fruit. Medium to fuller bodied with active carbonation. For the ibuís, this wasnít that bitter. Top notch IPA.

From a can thanks to BOOurns on the coachella message board.The pour is a huge white frothy head with a yellow-orange color.An grapefruit pine hop flavor with a slick and sticky texture.

Pours hazy apricot color, hoppy citrus, pine, grapefruit nose, head retention dissipates rather quickly, sweet cooked marmalade malt palate, finishing fresh and refreshing for 100 IBUs.

thome50 (1246) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Can from a NM friend passing through town Glad Iím almost through the top 10 IPAs. Pours a clear light orange/golden color with soapy white head. Aroma is grapefruit and orange pulp. Some mild spice as well, almost thyme. Taste is a very dry grapefruit and pithy ipa. Not sweet at all which is a nice change of pace. Really nice mouth feel that is again dry but very interesting. The can was almost two months old but shows no real signs of faded hops etc. I love canned IPA!

auerbrau (3199) - Ithaca, New York, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Can. Thanks Chris & Samira! Heavy pine and lupulin musk aroma. Vibrant, grassy, and tough. Flavors are bristlingly bitter and dry, which I appreciate, instead of a soppy, wet, sugary mess (like Heady Topper). Alcohols are well integrated, the bitterness is distinct, clean, and balancing, and except for a bit too much Simcoe-esque cat-pee mid-palate, a pretty pleasing set of hop flavors.

DiarmaidBHK (3861) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Pint at taproom. Pours yellow and clear with a thin white head. Leaves a lot of lacing. Very leafy on the nose. Lots of pine and grapefruit on the tongue. But I donít find the one particularly bitter. It finishes clean. Itís flavorful and a damn good IPA.

Big thanks to bytemesis for the can! Pours hazy golden color with a creamy bed of foam. Tropical fruits and flowers in the nose. Very flavorful. Nice bitterness, also retains some of the non-bitter citrus. All of the components are harmonious. One of the best IPAs I have had.

Boutip (5365) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2013
Bottle: Poured a hazy amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of floral hops with nice light citrus undertones and grassy notes is quite a treat. Taste is also dominated by citrus notes with some strong floral notes with light resin and grassy notes. Malt backbone is present though quite dry and doesnít interfere with the hops flavours. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well brewed and approaching HT level of goodness.

bytemesis (5195) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 8, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2013 Can, thanks a ton to Cocoapuph for bonusing me this long time want lister! Pours golden butterscotch, medium creamy beige head that slowly dissipates leaving a lot of residual and nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, citrus, a bit of passionfruit. Very nice! Flavor delivers on what the aroma promises, light sweet and light bitter, really well balanced. Reminds me a lot of a slightly souped up Zombie Dust, actually, which is a pretty damn good compliment. Medium body, a little bit oily in the mouth. This is a first rate IPA. Its score from me probably suffers a bit from the fact that the class of first rate IPAís is growing rapidly though.
