COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA has an Intense hop aroma and strong malt body, followed by a smooth clean finish. Pacific Northwest malted barley with hops from the fields of Yakima have come together to create this IPA that is very hoppy but very balanced with complex malt flavors. The IPA is best served cool, not ice cold so as not to subdue the hop aroma. The perfect beer for any day.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2009 wild and hoppy, like it was made in some cabin up in northern idaho. one of my favorite ipas flavors are all over the place, sweet, bitter, pungent and a very resiny finish.

omhper (22885) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 26, 2009
Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. Clear amber, rocky head. Striking perfumy grapefruity aroma with doughy malt underneath. Medium sweet with really solid makty body. Chewy and potent with massive hop rate and bitterness. Very well crafted IPA on the heavier side of the spectre.

Svesse (7698) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2009
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, 22 Jan 2009) Amber colour with frothy, beige head. Hoppy, fruity nose with pine needles, resin, orange peel and grapefruit. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of orange peel, grapefruit, caramel and pine needles. Fresh bitterness, but not overwhelmingly bitter. Fairly dry. Medium mouthfeel. Very tasty and nice beer.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2009
Chalky character underlies the cereal malt sweetness and citrusy, spicy, pine hop nose. Brilliantly clear copper body is topped by a low but lasting white head that coats the sides of the glass with sudsy lacing. Malt character is a bit lost in the very dry flavour. Mineral, chalky flavour underlies the cirus pine hop flavour. Moderate bitterness and some sweetness in the finish. Dry medium body with decent effervescence that engages the tongue. Snifter. Cellar temperature. Bottle. Bottleworks. Aug-08.

jeff789 (1408) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2008
pours a copper/amber with a big head, nice lacing... lots of citrus aroma, mostly grapefruit... A bit of pine in the taste, not as much grapefruit as in the nose... The hops seem muddled a bit, it doesnt have the crispness and balanced complexity of the top notch IPAs... I dont experience the "complex malt flavors" i was promised... OK, but many are better...

12 oz bottle via Bridgeview. Pours a hazy amber with a massive chunky beige head. Nose is some subtle floral/herbal hops and sourness. Taste is sour funk......totally infected. Down the drian she goes. Laughing dog seems to have an infection issue as the two dogzillas i got were also infected :(

22. Pours crystal clear but very dark amber with a towering, fluffy, platinum blonde head. Big woody nose; spent grain’s there, too. Cheerios-esque for sure. Nice medium body. Refreshing; nothing sticky or oily or even creamy about it. Woody, resiny, piney mid-palate with biscuit and crackers there as well. Pretty far away from the bright and fruity side of the IPA world, and very tough-minded and well-made. Nice refreshing, delicious little beer.
