COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This IPA pushes the boundaries (BJCP American IPA top-7.5% ABV/70 IBU) and delivers what you would expect. This aggressively hoped IPA awakens the senses with aromas of citrus, fruit, and pine but will bombard your taste buds (with hops, a subtle malt sweetness and notes of caramel) that will put a smile on your face. Available for a limited time on draft.

Formerly known as Hop Prop IPA.

bookman10 (662) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Pours a dark, golden-yellow, with little in the way of head. Strong hop-pine nose. Flavor is dominated by the piney-bitter hops, with citrus notes and some subtle, underlying malt sweetness. Nice, clean mouthfeel with bitter hop finish. This is a strong IPA.

Obfuscate (95) - Minneapolis, - DEC 14, 2014
First time Iíve had this local IPA and I must say I am very impressed. Really that classic clean, crisp, tart citrus, bitter on the back end west coast IPA but coming to you from the frozen tundra.

On tap at Yard House SLP. Pours a clear a golden amber with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has has sweet grains and sweet fruits with a light grassy backing. Flavor has more of a combination of light fruits, grass and a bit of sweet grains.

Indra (2656) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Draft. Fruity, citric and floral hop aroma, practically leaps out of the glass, with notes of tangerine, grapefruit, orange, pine and fainter malty tones, with some toasted grain and honeyish sweetness in the background. Hazy light-medium orange amber in color with a lasting, very fine-bubbled head and a thin sheet of lace. Flavor profile is quite hop-focused, more citrus and fruit character throughout, with a touch of caramel malt sweetness amidst the hop onslaught, with a generous dosage of hop bitterness from about midpoint onwards, finishing dry and resinous. Finely but sharply effervescent and lightly oily on the palate with a medium body. Certain to satisfy any hop craving, no doubt.

Pours a light amber color with a medium white head. Strong piney and resinous aroma. Taste leads with an almost skunked bitterness before the malt kicks in to save things. Once you get past the initial too-strong bitterness thereís a good APA flavor underneath. Iím more than OK with a big, hoppy IPA, but this doesnít quite pull it off. Overall itís good, but not great.

Ratman197 (10196) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle poured a hazy orange amber with a lingering ring of ivory foam. Aromas of bread, candied orange, pink grapefruit and tangerine. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, tangerine and orange zest with a smooth dry lightly bitter lingering tangerine finish.

AWISLguy (1420) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle from Four Firkins. Pours an amber orange with a bit of a white head. Some streaky lacing. Aroma has heavy pine, citrus and caramel. Taste is of pineapple, grapefruit, sprucey pine, and chewy resin with a solid caramel malt backbone. Quite bitter and tart, with that solid underlayer of sweetness. Medium bodied with a touch of alcohol. Finishes more bitter than sweet, but with some presence of both. This was enjoyable in a bitter not-super-fruity way. 13.9

Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Sample at Great Taste of the Midwest on 08/09/2014: Slightly hazy copper color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops, fruit and malt. Medium body with a flavors of resiny hops, citrus and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

maekchu (2283) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle from Zippís Liquors. Generous citrusy hopping in aroma, some caramel candy. Red/copper color. Citrus, caramel steps in, some pine, goes to balance, a bit more grapefruit in mid and final, and light bitter tracks. Medium body. Pretty standard IPA. Tasty and all, for sure, but not a lot of depth here.
