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.

Pour out of 16 oz can, big thanks to Aaron for being so generous. Nice slightly hazy orange-yellow pour with nice fluffy tan head, aroma is big dank notes of pine, grass, going into nice grapefruit, orange, lemon, some hints of sweet caramel, and a nice rich piney orange mix finishes it out, very nice. Taste is a nice mix of grapefruit, orange, some lemon, slight mango, pineapple, hints of pine, grass, slight caramel, finishing with a hint of spice, more hops, more bitterness but never overwhelming. This is very well done.

Can. Pretty subpar for the category. Smells and tastes like cat piss. Imbalanced, but most IPA’s these days are. Unpleasant flavor/aroma profile leading to "over-the-top" hop bitterness. Citrus would have been much better than stinky garlic. Malt presence is clearly subdued to compensate for the ridiculous hop character (which misses the mark).

adnielsen (9252) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 3, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2013 Tap @ La Cumbre. Pours a clear, dark orange appearance with a white head. Heavy ganja, resiny, super piney, citrusy hoppy aroma. It’s like you are sucking on the fucking hops. Super ganja, piney hoppy, palate wrecking flavor. Tasty. Official beer of the Iowa City 1/10/2013 spongedbob party.

Theydon_Bois (9125) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2013
Can at ChrisO tasting, thanks to Henrik for what I think is my first beer from NM ! 30/12/12. Lightly hazed mid amber with a thin off white head that clears to the edge and leaves a small film. Nose is bitter hops, pine, grapefruit - simple and fresh. Taste comprises bitter grapefruit, hops, pine, orange pith, touch of sugars. Medium bodied with soft carbonation leading to a bitter dry finish. First rate IPA!

A Christmas present from my daughter via Beer Jobber. Pours clear amber with a white head. The aroma is bready sweet malts. The flavor has the sweet malt base but then gives way to a huge hop hit. Dry and refreshing, one of the best IPA’s i’ve had in a while.

Clear copper pour, thin soapy off white head and striped sticky lacing .... aroma of piney, rindy and citrusy hops with a light caramel malt ... the taste is pure ibu heaven with lots of piney, rindy and citrusy hops, light caramel malt backbone and a dry, strong bitter hop that just pounds the tongue ... mouthfeel is lightly slick and oily with a long bitter bite ... finishes bitter and dry with a lingering bitter hop bite .... abv hidden well ... everything an ipa should be
