COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Beergaard (287) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2015
This was a decent surprise for me - really nice ipa! Citric notes of sweet grape fruit, orange and tangerine combined with some tropical fruit and peach. Both refreshing and complex.

TSuthard (13) - - AUG 14, 2015
UPDATED: APR 10, 2016 Copper in color with an average head but goid lacing. Fresh and clean aroma. Very balanced as IPAs go, giving the hop room to express itself without over powering the palate.

PartyFowle (954) - - AUG 3, 2015
Can. Nice copper hue with soft haze and a sticky sand-colored cap. Awesome nose: juicy grapefruit, mint, a little catty, a splash of sugar-dusted mango and rock candy. In the flavor, burnt sugar is followed by grapefruit pith, pine needles, wet grass and a subtle tropical note, giving way to moderate bitterness in the finish. Creamy medium body; mild peppery CO2. A really tasty IPA with complex hop character and deft balance.

16 oz can poured. Much thanks to Eric for sending this as a trade extra. Very unexpected. Love it when a beer totally lives up to itís ratings. Pours a thick, cloudy, bright orange color with a bubbly white head. Aroma is very hop forward with some citrus. Flavor is very heavy on the grapefruit. Towards the late finish, itís almost like a big bite of grapefruit. Thick body full of citrus. Has the makeup of my favorite IPAís. Love it.

edwardbass (776) - Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2015 Golden color with citrus and tropical fruit aroma. Taste is grapefruit, citrus rind, tropical fruit, with a perfect malt background. It gets close to a DIPA with itís ABV sweetness and very slight burn. Not quite a 100 in my books, but it is an excellent IPA.
