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.

I'm not sure what to say. Poured out of the cool tall can, it is a lovely orange color. I'm just about finished with my third (aren't Friday nights great?), but I can't decide if I like it or love it. My UPS delivery of this beer was really cool, so that adds to the positive vibe ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured orange with lingering white head. Aroma was super grapefruit and tangerine light floral notes. Taste was very bitter piney resiny with large amounts of tangerine

Can - well-executed American IPA - floral, citric, and dank - clean, medium sweet malt base allows the hop character to pop but keep it from being overly bitter or abrasive, while still being assertive - my neighborhood brewery (Station 26) is still my go-to for my IPA fix, but this will certainly go in the rotation.

Sehr interessant. Geruch wie Geschmack kaum zu definieren. Fruchtig, nicht tropisch, leicht nach Molasse und Weintrauben! Sehr erfrischend. Genossen aus der Dose, daher kaum Optik wahrnehmbar. Extrem erfrischend und schnell bitter werdend im Abgang. Leichtes Bubblegum Feeling. Richtig spannend und wirklich innovativ! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Garrold (3774) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2016
Can, by way of trade with HenrikO. Cheers Henrik. Liking this box of beer! Dark gold, with a soft haze. Super sticky, film of white. Sweet, ripe summer fruits. Toasted malts. Notes of fresh sawn pine. Some resin. Sweet, gluey hoppage. Taste is chewy sweet, turning piny, resinous bitter. Hop oily, slightly sickly sweet, mouthfeel. Finishes much the same. Smells great. Sweet and piny.

Fresh can -- cheers, Michael! Bitter, a little malty, and satisfying. There’s a great balance between the hop flavor (fruity and especially pine) and the bitterness, which is moderately-high.

Derek881 (1231) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 7, 2016
Poured from a tall can into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a full, somewhat dark clear amber color with a large foamy white head with average retention, and good cling and lacing. Its aroma featured grapefruit and citrus flavors, along with some grainy and grassy hops, and a bit of yeast and light sugary notes. The taste was strongly bitter and grainy, with only a light touch of citrus flavors, and some grassy and earthy components, and a very strong hops presence. It was a very dry beer in the mouth, with a thick mouthfeel and body, along with average carbonation, and a presence of alcohol.

Clear bright copper like a new penny, under a pillowy white head. Big lovely hoppy nose of fresh floral hops and American dank piney resins with a little orange pith. Lovely and smooth flavor that’s quite zesty and citrusy but also resiny and earthy, a touch piney with some fresh floral tones. Really smooth with a just-right amount of pale malty linger, and a balanced bitterness throughout.

Pint can. Tropical fruit aroma with notes of citrus hops and a touch of pine. Pours clear golden colored with a large off white head with excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with tropical fruit flavor most notably pineapple with some grapefruit citrus hoppiness as well. Finishes dry but still quite smooth with some piney hop bitterness. Nice, refreshing IPA!

Ernest (7164) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 15, 2016
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow to light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, orange, resin, apricot), with notes of onion and alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic, lightly astringent. Fairly ordinary hop aroma, leaning towards tropical but not quite getting there...mostly just the usual citrus and resin, and unfortunately the all-too-common onion stink of so many modern IPAs. Pretty nice mouthfeel, weightier than most IPAs. A bit harsh in the flavor balance department, though...the sweetness is little match for the strong bitterness and significant acidity...it becomes a bit tiring in a short time. Not bad but nothing special in this over-saturated field.
