3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass. First time I was a bit shaky, it made a huge head that ran over the glass. After that smoother pours resulted in a medium head. VERY hoppy. Label says "suicidally hoppy." I’m really more of a dark beer drinker, but I thought I liked hops. This beer is too much though. All I can taste is the hops. Doesn’t sit well in my stomach.
It would probably rate really high among IPA lovers, but stout drinkers approach with caution!

Pours a slightly hazy orange with a small to medium sized white head. Ample aromas of hops and citrus with a hint of pine, and a soft undercurrent of malt. Hops come right out in the mouth mellowing for a moment, and then slowly fading into a mildly bitter finish. I find myself going to this beer quite often as a casual IPA that is very approachable, and very affordable.

pours a copper colour with a large off white head.
Aroma was wicked grapefruit and white grape juice as well as light floral tones. Flavour is citrusy hop, some caramel malt body through the back end, a nice clean bitter finish.

12 ounce bottle courtesy of ucusty. Thanks! Pours a clear amber color with a medium white head, average retention and great lacing. Sweet floral hop aroma. Taste is citrus and leafy hops with some sweet malts. Medium body.

Crushed with Honkeybra. Lots of awesome floral hops on the nose. Gave way to...nothing. This is the Calista Flockhart of ipa’s: probably smells and looks nice, but absolutely no body whatsoever. Flavor is severely lacking in anything related to a ipa.

Crushed with TheDude at Budde’s pizza in Galesburg, IL. Looks nice, golden with some hops. Smells really nice, beautiful floral hops. However, this beer has no body. Just hops and Very disappointing.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Copper color with a large head. Light grassy aroma. Malty flavor with some caramel finishing it up. No hops. None. Not even a residule bitterness. 43 different hops? It doesn’t seem like they even used one. If this had been labeled an Amber, it would have been great. As it is, it is an okay tasting brew that is completely disappointing considering the label on it.

Draft at Loki Music Festival. Pours a light amber beer with a decent orangish head. Aroma is hoppy and citrus fruit. Flavor is your typical hoppy IPA. End is bitter and a little bit dy. Great beer very drinkable
