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.

Excellent IPA. Very fresh. Pours a light, golden yellow, with small head. Hop aroma and very strong, bitter hop flavor, with citrus notes and a bitter finish.

Huhzubendah (2413) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Huge thanks to Darrell for the hookup! The beer is light golden orange and mostly clear with an inch of pure white head. Aromas of dank, resinous hops, pine, orange and grapefruit. Grapefruit and pine in the flavor with a general citrusy quality. Tangy and juicy. Soft carbonation, finishing with moderate bitterness and a hint of alcohol warmth. East to drink and delicious.

Had it out of a tall boy can. Deelicious!! It pours copper clear and lovely. Piny in aroma, slight taste of malt, and a hint of 4-20.

crackedmachine (469) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Pours a transparent golden color with a thick, foamy, lasting off-white head. Aroma is deeply resinous, piney, citrus hops. Flavor is dank, piney, slightly grassy, a little grapefruit, and some moderate tropical sweetness. Very bitter finish. Great. (Thanks Matt for bringing this from Albuquerque to Seattle!)

deyholla (6502) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Samples from the tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with an off white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice combination of grapefruit and pine with light grass backing and a hint of onion. Flavor has a combination of onion and grapefruit with earthy pine and grain backing.

Pungent nose leads to a full body of piney goodness. Hints of bitter citrus form the basis of this superb India pale ale. A bit darker than the Project Dank, but a very similar flavor profile. Lovely brew!

Wow! Musty tropical fruit aroma. Orange amber in the glass. Sweet bitter citrus flavor and minty pine aftertaste. Overall, an interesting brew. Thanks as always to BarZigKin for his continued generosity to the charity case that is LLCoolDave!

This is a gift from new old friends, Carla & Mark. Much appreciated! Poured with a nice thick golden amber head. Color's a clear medium amber. Aromas fresh volatile hop with a little malt to balance it out. Great flavor pallet and finish. Good drinking beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
