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.

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 (114) - 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.

Huge thanks to errl for sharing this can. Orange pour with a large white head. The aroma is full of orange and pine. Very fresh smelling. The flavor is very similar. I get a lot of pine and orange notes as well as some resin and pineapple character. Medium bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium mouthfeel.

Found at whole foods in Santa Fe...this ipa sides on the piney resinous side with some notes of fruit. Nicely done, and in a big can!

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 9, 2013
Pours a sightly hazy gold with a thin white head and nice lace. Incredibly sweet aroma, very fruity, sweet mandarin orange. Holy fresh hops, batman! Resinous hop bite with good malt backbone to balance without becoming overly sweet. Crisp, well-carbonated body. Delicious!!!

30 July 3013, bottle. Yellow, clear, no bubbles. Nose is serious astringent pine hops. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Pine hops and passion fruit. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tallboy can. Hoppy, plenty of bitterness, definitely of the West Coast style. Clearly a well-made IPA, but it's a bit too resinous for my tastes
