COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This IPA will “wow” those tastebuds and wake up your nose! Fruitiness in the aroma and a mango-like finish from the NZ Nelson hops used are sure to get you to believe in fate!

GT2 (8366) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Short: A harsh, overly bitter IPA

[ Mother Earth ][ Tap ][ 2oz ][ Taster ][ $1-2 ][ 1/25/14 ]
Long: Clear light amber pour, good lacing. Decent citrus hop nose. Taste is bitter, dusty, aggressive bitterness. No malt juiciness to balance. Over the top bitter. Harsh.
Flaws: Overly bitter, astringent, harsh
Cause: Oversteeped grain, wrong mash in temperature, too long of hop boil, etc.

ADfan (539) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Poured from the tap it has a nice amber color with a big head. Aroma of malts and some bread. It also has some fruit that blends well. First thing I notice is the malt backbone which stands out. The citrus rounds out the finish with some mango and apricot. Nice finish.

RedSox2004 (1233) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Cloudy golden orange with a bright white head and very nice lace. Big grapefruit aromas, accompanied by tropical citrus - mango, mostly. Taste follows, with a strong hop bitterness featuring citrus is offset only slightly by a bready maltiness. Medium body, full carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a crisp bitter finish.

bergstaden (1220) - Røros, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2014
Golden with a white head - Aroma of hops with citrus and other fruits - Good malt body to support the hops that tastes a lot of citrus - Lingering hop finish that is dry - This was good

Need I say EXTREMELY highly recommend! one of the best IPAs i have had.

Lukaduke (2139) - Portland, Maine, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle thanks to Kipp ! Pours a yellow golden color with a finger of white tight bubbled foam. The nose has some nice tropical fruit up front mixed with some earthy straw, floral hay and a touch of citrus. The palate follows with a full flavorful body but lacks a bit of the tropical punch found in the nose. Decent IPA with nice earthy grain, juicy hops and a touch of chalkiness on the tail end leading into a well integrated bitterness.

Amber colored, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, tropical fruit, some caramel. Medium bodied, moderate bitterness. Not bad.

On tap at the brewery. Clear golden orange pour, with a white head. Bitterness, floral, caramel malt, sweetness, citrusy hops, and pine. Decent.
