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.

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 don’t find the one particularly bitter. It finishes clean. It’s 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 (4726) - 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 doesn’t 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 (3152) - 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 IPA’s is growing rapidly though.

Pours amber with a two finger white head and nice lacing. Powerful hop aroma, lots of pine resin and tropical fruit. Bitter pine resin and grapefruit flavors hit the tongue first followed by sweet malty tropical fruit. Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall this is one of the best IPAs I've ever had, bar none! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 oz can from my buddy in AZ. Pours a nice, clear golden orange color with a small foamy head that fades normally and leaves a little webbing. Big, musty aroma of grapefruit, tropical fruit, oranges, and apricots. Taste is intense. Light sweetness with a very strong bitter punch. Fresh citrus and tropical fruit hops throughout with a little onion too. Good malt backbone. A bit extreme in the bitterness but still delicious. If the bitterness was toned down a bit it might be my favorite IPA.

Had this at a BOSS tasting thanks to Ryan. Very nice beer. Pours a golden amber. Lots of hippiness up front but finishes malty and smooth. Very nice.

Livendadream (118) - New Mexico, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Can,pours hazy light dull yellow color. Massive head with tight bubbles that hangs around for quite some time. Good lacing on glass. Tropical fruits, mango, dried apricots, mandarin orange,pine,and dankness in the nose with some light cereal sweetness. Taste is Wow! hop, hop, hops with mild maltiness. Huge amount of fresh hop flavor of citrus and pine. Medium body that is dry on the tongue, followed by piney,resiny bitterness. Perfect amount of carbonation. Feels like the hops stick to your throat. Very complex hop forward IPA that truly has that fresh hop flavor and aroma. I like this. Hopheads will love this brew.

Greasy hop aroma blending in with nuts and caramel. Medium body, again caramel, nuts and indeed some slightly perfumy aroma hops

Aroma is malt tangy and citrusy sweet, but all pleasant and balanced. Taste is NICE. Clean, crisp and smooth balance of hop forward bitter and sweet malty finish. Top notch.
