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.

can, thanks to mads for the sample. golden with a steady white head; plenty of grapefruit and pine in the aroma; plenty of bitterness even for my tired palate at the end of a long session; crisp and invigorating

Can from a friend. Poured into glass. Golden amber color, quickly dissipating head. Aroma is strong pine, floral / grapefruit peel notes. Taste is very west coast ipa strong piney hop flavors with hints of citrus and grapefruit. Mild malt backbone. Solid carbonation. Great all around offering.

Tangerines and spring flowers just ticked my nose. It's got a lovely light copper color with very little head. The flavor is where it's at with this one. Tons of hops bringing honeysuckle and grapefruit right up front and actually finishing all the way through. Only slightly bitter as the hop oils really shine in this IPA. I'm gonna go ahead and say this is the tastiest IPA in the southwest. Yup...I said it. Wait...SoCal isn't considered southwest right? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Growler shared by Terminus at RBWG ’11 (notes). Pours a mostly clear orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma has pine, citrus, grapefruit, dank and floral hops with caramel malts. The flavor has more pine and less floral character than the nose, with enough malt backbone to keep balance. This is just a solid drinking IPA that I wish I had better access to.

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.

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.
