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.

Wonderfully resiny. Drinking straight from the can its great! I feel like Iím camping kinda. Caramel backbone to hold up this strong hop presence. If you can not get this beer. Find someone who can. Its up there with the best.

jnkor (333) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Aroma is sweet and light. Color is nice but a bit light, nice head. Taste isnít extremely bitter, and finish is lacking the hop bite. Drinkable.

stevoj (3287) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 24, 2016
On tap at brewery. Donít be surprised by the faint nose, big hops follow. Deep golden color, soft creamy head, some streaky lacing. Silky smooth, almost syrupy body. Hops linger...for a while. Big hoppy IPA.

parkerj (49) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Just moved to NM from WI and this absolutely blows away any IPA from my home state. Intensely bitter, but with a great citrus flavor. Since heading down here, itís become my new go-to.

Art (2695) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Cans thanks to my sister-in-law and Peter. Definitely spot on true to style IPA. Pours a clear copper color with a white head. Big grapefruit aroma. Mug hop bitterness that kills the palate. Medium body. Medium high carb.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy, bright golden orange color with a one finger white foam head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Decent retention with some spotty lacing left behind. Floral perfume-y aroma with sweet booze and a prominent citrus/ tropical fruit presence. Slightly grassy and resinous but the booze and fruit sweetness dominate. Hints of papaya, grapefruit and orange zest along with some resinous oils, pine needle and fresh cut grass. A bit one dimension but still smells pretty good. Medium body with some dry, grassy bitterness which is stronger than the aroma suggests. Crisp with earthy and grassy saaz-like hops countered by tropical fruit sweetness and a pale malt backbone. Lots of pineapple and grapefruit with some orange peel and lemon juice. Pale biscuit malt backbone with hints of bread and graham cracker. Really nice with a little alcohol burn in the back end but overall the ABV is decently masked. Well balanced, flavorful and very easy to drink. Nice beer!

Finhead (1483) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Clear, golden pour with a rocky, white head. The aroma is predominately earthy hops. It has a light, somewhat watery body with average carbonation. The taste is moderately bitter with a fairly quick finish.

Lubiere (11932) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2015
A hazed golden ipa with a thick frothy lacing big bubbled off white head. In aroma, sweet fruity caramel malt with treacle, grassy resinous piney floral hops, light funky herbaceous character, nice. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity caramel malt with resinous floral hops, grapefruit pulp, smooth and quaffable. Can from Arizona store, 1 year old.
