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.

Hits you right in the sinus cavity and isn't ashamed of its forwardness. Is only 7.2 but you'd think it was 10+ as it packs a wallop. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Light copper with a big off white head. Nice balance between varieties of tropical fruit and caramel malt. Lots of balance, lots of nuance. Tons of beers try this and fail.

Draft. Pours a clear copper color with thin laced head. Thick, tart aroma with a strong hop presence. Smooth taste. Citrusy with a good hop balance. Smooth with a dry finish. Really good IPA.

sloth (2600) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - APR 3, 2015
Gorgeous pour! Nice, sticky, tan head that lasts with schweetass lacing. Lightly hazy, deep copper color. Big ass hops in the nose, juicy, grapefruit, citrus gorged.Full bodied, chewy and resiny, lovely! Lightly sweet malts cringing under the big macidness of juicy, resiny hop flavors that are fairly nonstop.Fairly dry, resiny fruity finish with a well balanced bite. Well done Mr. Erway! No let down here, this is the real deal! Major props go out to Kevin for droppin a few cans on my ass in our last trade. Thanks much!

A little over the top for an everyday brew, but quite excellent nonetheless. Smells like a spring garden bouquet of floral notes with a rich, rather oily texture. Not a great deal of head going on with this offering from a 16 oz can at the local Smith’s, nor a lot of carbonation in general. Perhaps mine is a little flat. Lots of white lacing as I drain the glass though. Nearly opaque light copper in color with a big malt presence. One of the better high end IPAs I’ve tried. Quite similar to a Stone IPA, but even maltier and better balanced.

Atom (1632) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Pint can pours a semi hazy golden/orange with a medium off-white head. Nice soft balanced hop aroma, nice spice, mildly tropical with bready caramel malt. Smooth palate, nice hop spice and bitterness all the way through, sweet and tropical, mango, full flavored bready caramel malt. Really nice smooth balance, very tasty!!

Padron4KM (620) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - FEB 21, 2015
16oz can poured into a glass. Clear amber, two finger rocky head, nice retention, thick lacing.
Aroma is grapefruit, pine, dank, and sweet malt.
Flavor is pine, resin and caramel malt, with juicy grapefruit and orange on the finish. Nicely balanced. Lots of hoppy goodness, but it never gets out of control.

CarlosTheTall (14) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Pours a very nice clear, gold. Minimal head. Strong hoppy aroma. Very heavy, hoppy bitter flavor. Rich, earthy and lingers on your palate. One pint is enough.

suprchunk (2509) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Dark coppery pour. Slight white head. Little bit of lacing. Huge dankness. Smells like sweaty armpits. Big hops. Bitter taste if dry malt and a little hops. Not as much hops in the taste as in the nose. Bitterness left in the mouth making me want to drink some more. Slight chalkiness.

Can. Pours a cloudy orange with small wht head. Aroma is strong hop and pine. Strong bitter hop bite and finish. Really enjoyed this.
