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.

Pours deep straw with fluffy white head. Huge grapefruit aroma that I really love. Flavor hits with a nice hoppiness but rounded like it is first wort hopped or something. Super clean just a lingering bitterness. Really a nice IPA from erway. Freaking amazing. Right up my alley what I am looking in am IPA.

Pours a bright golden with a one finger head, white, foamy...falls into spotty lacing quick. Light carbonation. Smells of skunky pine, citrus, sweet malt, gym sock, soap and has some floral notes. Taste is big for the ABV. Love this. Get the pine and skunk upfront...resin, caramel across the middle....some soapy bitterness in the finish. Really like this beer, have had it several times now and can say that it holds up after a month or more in the fridge. Top notch stuff.

Homer321 (1011) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Can via trade. Nose of real citrus, pine, dank combo. Drank from can so no appearance comments. Must be a 4. Taste is real malty sweet with a bitter pithy kick mid palate that lasts until the end. I saw foam when I opened but this is way malty and under carbonated. Kind of a mess. Ok. Poured into a pint. Very clear dark yellow with large white head. So there is carbonation. A little better but the malt is just so sweet up front. Would much prefer the malt and bitterness toned down for an IPA.

One of my favorite all time IPAs. Powerful hops with pleasant citrus. Aftertaste is ok

Can extra in trade. Pours a semi opaque orange amber with a decent white head. Smell is cat piss, grapefruit, mango. Taste is grapefruit, malt, and slight tropical fruits. Incredibly smooth mouthfeel, high bitterness. Not sure if this one deserves to be in the top 10 IPAs.

thanks to star raptor for the beer one pint can Caramel orange color. Half finger of head that falls to a collar. Good retention to the head. Bright, vibrant citrus. Lots of grapefruit, orange, and pine with good backing caramel. Bright and aggressive taste. Bitter but smooth and slightly sweet. Fresh orange, grapefruit and pine. Good carbonation, oliy and slightly dank but still fresh. Really nice IPA

Extra from blacknyellow20 (BA), thanks man, didnt thing this was going to be anything special, but first wiff, and holy cow thats a lot of delicious hops. Checks computer, wow 100 rating. Man this is citrius hoppy goodness. Taste is not as amazing as the smell but still good. Orange peel, not too bitter, lots of sweet malt. I dont think that the can is not super fresh, but this is a really good IPA. Rate beer claims that this is the best beer made in mexico, i wouldnt disagree with that, also probably better than anything from old mexico.

This beer was really overpowered by the hops in the beer. It was very overwhelming and took over the taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A light colored pour with a thin head. Smells of spruce and citrus. Tastes fantastic with a bitter finish fitting of the best American IPAs. One of the best American IPAs I’ve had. Increadibly drinkable, but still interesting enough to keep your attention.

At Kyle’s tasting. Good ipa, from a can. There are hops with lots of citrus with grapefruit and a decent dose of malt to give a little sweetness.
