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.

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

Can. Dark amber pour with a tall, frothy tan head. Aroma is big pine and citrus with abundant floral hops and hints of tropical fruit. Taste is rife with floral hops, tropical fruit, pine notes, citrus oils and a smattering of caramel and chewy malt. Body is medium-full and slightly chewy with oily hop notes and lingering hop bitterness. Ends with more floral hops, tropical fruit, citrus fruit, pine and caramel. Very nice!

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Serving: Can from State Line Liquors. Clear amber pour with a medium sized head of foam. The nose has a little pine needle and citrus zest. The flavor has a touch of caramel malt backbone to go with the pine and citrus hops. Medium to long finish. Straightforward stuff, but good.

12 oz can pour. Pours a penny copper color with a patchy head. Wet caramel malt aroma. By the way, I love what they are doing with the can designs. Cool stuff. Medium body bitter malt flavors with some really nice floral hops towards the finish. Solid IPA. Definitely going to continue looking into these guys. Good beer.

crazyvin (1963) - New York, USA - OCT 11, 2014
From a can. A copper body with a slightly off white head, good retention and lace. Aroma was a mix of citrus and resin hops. Mild citronella and a floral quality. Caramel malts. Flavor was initially sweet from the caramel malts. Hop flavor was very balanced. Resin notes were assertive and the citrus notes were just right. A slightly dry finish and easy to drink.

Now this is a fantastic IPA. Resin, pine, grapefruit, slight orange, sweet caramel undertones... Well done Cornhuskers!

ttoadee (666) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Light copper pour, thin white head, scant lace. Nose is spruce and pine. Bitter. Middle is medium bodied caramel malt. Finish comes in pine and lasting bitterness. Nice beer, especially for hop heads.

Aromas of orange, lemon, somewhat peachy. Clear gold-copper with a mostly fading off-white head. Malty, bitter, well balanced, sharp hops. Light-medium bodied, refreshingly carbonated.

12 oz Can. Tasted on 10/5/14. Beer courtesy of Chae.. Thanks Bro!!! The beer has more pine, biscuit & a very slight floral aroma. The taste was smooth with a good mouth feel & an medium pine taste not much sweetness & a clean finish. Overall not great but still a very drinkable IPA.
