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.

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 (2448) - 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.

riversideAK (5695) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Fuck yeah top ten for style bitches. Soft floral citrus nose, toast, caramel, more perfumey notes with hints of dank. just balanced. Pours orange amber, great head retention lace. Solid looking beer. Flavors of toasted malt, caramel, floral hops, a little earth, dirt, and wood. Big fruity dank finish. Toasted malts linger with a hint of sweetness. Balance here is big time. Really well done. Maybe not my favorite flavor profile from an IPA but you can definitely appreciate good work here.

bellco33 (401) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Poured from a can into a snifter: Pours amber with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, floral, and tropical notes. Taste is more of the same hop notes, caramel, with a nice bitter finish. Medium body, nice carbonation, really nice IPA.

Zeswaft (1426) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Can. Copper color. Aroma of orange peel and citrus. Flavor is heavy citrus hops and a medium amount of caramel sweetness. Hop flavors shine and are well balanced although i think the 7.2 starts to show up as it warms.

hopwine (453) - brooklynzzzzz, New York, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Juicy, tropical aroma. Flavor is floral/nectar/honey, grass, pungent mango and passion fruit, citrus rind bitterness. Damn this is truly amazing and I really appreciate them caring enough to list when it was canned on the four pack carrier.

ChiGuy68 (433) - Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Tasted from a pint can. It poured a dark Amber hue with a frothy head that left streaky lacing. Hop, pineapple, and citrus aroma. A well hopped taste with a slightly bitter back. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Padron4KM (598) - 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.
