COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our West Coast inspired India Pale Ale is rich in flavor and abundant in citrus, pine, and floral aromatics created through a wonderful infusion of Citra hops. Completely refreshing and possessing a medium mouthfeel, crisp bitterness, and nearly balanced malts. Finishes dry with a head that creates beautiful lacing down the entire glass. A truly inspired and coveted IPA.

gururyan (719) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Poured from can into snifter. Wonderful burnt orange, medium head and lacing, classic west coast aroma, but the finish...the finish is not good. Lingering bitterness that coats the tongue. Best to have chips and salsa nearby. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy amber. Aroma and flavour are full of Belgian style farmyard funk. Sharp and bitter.

nearbeer (4877) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 19, 2016
12 oz. can. Deep amber, almost copper and clear with a lunar landscape of creamy foam. Nose is earthy orange, bread, toffee, tea leaf and a hint of resin. Tastes of tea, bread, sourish orange flesh, earthy toffee and wood. Long finish has minty herb and peppery resin. Medium body has medium-high carbonation that gets a bit too fizzy at times. Still, it’s a tasty earthy IPA that I’d return to.

hivemind (890) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 10, 2016
Tap at Barcade JC. Nice solid dark amber with faint translucence toward the bottom of the pint. Nearly white head. Aroma muted grains and some really damp leafy earthiness. Flavor profile malt-forward with slightly harsh grain giving way to a load of caramel and a hint of pine. Harsher than I remember from years ago but that is fine - still a big fan of the boldness. Really solid, yet a prime example of my random loyalty to random brewries.

hellonearth (118) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2016
Une autre IPA, une! Rien de surprenant: arômes fleurales de pin et de pain (!). D’un brun clair avec sa petite mousse. Un goût typique de pamplemousse, avec un tantinet de caramel brûlé. Amère, mais pas tant. Bien!

ciocanelu (1320) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 3, 2016
Clear amber color with off-white head. Aroma has vegetal, grassy, slightly dank hops and some malt in the background. Taste starts with slightly nutty malts and vegetal hops. Finish is earthy and bitter with some toasted malt flavor. Medium to light body with smooth mouthfeel. Overall it’s a pretty good IPA leaning more towards the old school style.

UDBeernut (2638) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2016
can enjoyed in a hotel room no where near Nebraska. What you got to do to get that state tick I suppose. Solid resin, pine, bitterness on top of a full body brought about by caramel and toasted malt. lingering finish.

bartzluke (598) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 30, 2016
12 oz pour from can into Spiegelau IPA glass. Pours deep orange with a moderate dirty head. Oily. Nose is sweet, citrus, resin, dank. Body is full. Taste is bitter, piney, and dank. Nice bitter IPA.

highibus (796) - Vail, Arizona, USA - JUL 29, 2016
Pours deep copper with fluffy off white head. Nice aroma of lightly piney hops. Decent maltiness and subdued hoppiness. Not quite bitter enough but not bad. Decent beer just not special.

valpoaj (729) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Can pour (interesting tab) - brown/gold pour with a moderate white head that left hefty lacing. Aroma is nice and actually kind of mellow...floral hops at the forefront with some good citrus notes as well (not necessarily what I was expecting, as the resinous pine is in the background)...decent sweetness underlies the brew - good! Flavor is notably bitter, but a bit more malt backbone than a typical IPA - finishes sweeter than the average within this style...dances back and forth between bitter and sweet...pretty well done. Quite easy drinking - moderate on the palate with a notable smoothness...would enjoy one again!
