COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship, an agressivly hopped India Pale Ale. Piney, grapefruit flavor with a big nose.

An IPA brewed with pale malts, generous amounts of crystal malts and an abundance of whole hops. The hops are showcased through a hop back process, which along with dry hopping, produces a piney, grapefruit and floral aroma and helps contribute to a crisp, dry finish.

Bottle on 6/26/15. Pours a light copper with a fluffy white head. Nose is malty, spicy, piney. Not very much citrus. Taste is resinous, hop bitter but not very citrusy. Grassy. Fine but nothing standout. Well made.

A pretty solid IPA with quite a bit of pine and citrus aroma. Less hoppy in the flavor profile, unfortunately, though a well balanced beer overall. Picked up in Asheville in 2015.

Tmoney99 (12070) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle. Poured hazy copper color with a large frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus and resin hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy citrus bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium duration. This a solid brew.

22 oz bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy golden color with a large fluffy off white head. The aroma and flavor have some herbal, earthy hops, toasted malts, moderate bitterness, grass, hints of fruit, decent ipa that is flying under the radar.

ben4321 (4839) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Location: 22 oz bottle from Bruisin’ Ales, 1/7/15

Aroma: This beer has an aroma of citrus and floral hops, with some bready notes as well
Appearance: Pours a murky orange color with a frothy beige head and a heavy, coating lace
Flavor: The taste is similar component-wise, lightly sweet, and medium bitter
Palate: Has a light-medium body, a solid mouthfeel, soft carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: This is a decent IPA, it is not a particularly impressive one, nor is it a poor example. Just really defines the word decent for me. Also, for some reason, I now have the song "New Day Sunshine" stuck in my head, so there’s that.

Cloudy light honey in color. Slight barnyard aroma. Fruity tropical flavors. Pineapple & mango. Overall, a decent tasting beer.

22 oz bomber pours light copper with moderate head. A bit overcarbed as a little volcano formed from the bottle, excellent citrus aromas. Vert nice drinking ipa from a great brewery

Nicely balanced, but definitely hop-forward IPA. Great head with a smooth body.
