COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The devil made us do it. From the ABV and IBU figures to the fiendish use of Cascade, Perle and Willamette hops, Lucifer was whispering in our ears the entire time. Citrus and pine scents greet you and are followed by the sharp bitterness expected of an IPA. The beerís true wickedness is revealed in the smooth Pale, Crystal 30 and wheat malts that surreptitiously broaden the beerís appeal to more than just hopheads.

BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 25, 2011
An above average IPA that didnít benefit from me trying it immediately after the TBK White Raja (wow, thatís a great beer!). This beer is a copper/biscuit color with a pretty tall but loosely packed head. Aroma is some nice hop citrus-ness with the Cascade aroma up-front. Flavor is good bitterness, with more citrus packed in. Mouthfeel is a little on the thin side, but not bad. A very serviceable beer - I would recommend it. I had this on-tap at Roziís Wine House in Lakewood, OH.

hotstuff (4763) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 4, 2016
Rated on 4-04-2016 (Bottled on 10/12/15) The appearance is a medium sized ivory head that mostly diminished, transparent amber body, slow rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is light citrus and pine khops, orange hops, light lemon, and caramel. The flavor presents light bitterness, citrus hops, lightly fruity, and quite malty. The mouthfeel is creamy and light carbonation. This is a medium bodied IPA. An easy drinking IPA with an average taste to it.

degbert (1594) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 11, 2016
Bottle. Pours dark gold with a light, off-white, shallow head. Nose is grapefruit, camphor, rosemary, sage, and lavender -- very well balanced. Bitter on the front of the tongue, with a nicely countered orange-toffee malt; thereís a saline or savory edge that adds a third element to the overall taste. I canít say it enough; balanced, balanced, balanced. Itís a little understated, but very harmonious. The finish is, however, a little short. Quite nice.

jhamp9 (1538) - Corinth, Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2016
Clear copper pour with an off white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is grass, pine, toffee, and citrus. Taste is pithy citrus, pine, toffee, and toast. Lasting bitterness. Medium body.

RocknSkol (13) - - FEB 17, 2016
Great IPA. Tasted this side by side with 7 other MI IPAís and it ranked at the top with 2 others. Nice long-lasting head,copper-gold color and piney aroma. Nice resiny hop flavor balancing a malty background. Solid.

SG111 (1013) - New York, USA - JAN 13, 2016
Bottled 10/28/15. Pours golden color, big slightly beige head. Aroma is caramel malt, citrus hops, but it feels old. It IS about 3 months old, and Iím pretty sure it was a malty IPA to begin with, but itís particularly malty now. Decently hoppy finish. Would def. be better fresher.

alexanderj (3503) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JAN 7, 2016
Bottle. Color was an orange to copper color with an off white head. Aroma of orange, citrus, and some pine and caramel. More malty in the flavor. Piney and orange in the flavor. Good stuff

Niall73 (2417) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2016
Bottle at home while visiting Jacksonville. pours an orange gold with a white head. Light veggie dank aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Sweet with a light metallic edge alongside pine and orange and some toasty stuff. Not great.

barroso2501 (65) - Brasilia, BRAZIL - DEC 12, 2015
Acobreada com espuma persistente. Otimo aroma, citrico e pinus, mas nao evidente ao paladar. Retrogosto persistente, um pouco terroso.

mvp (225) - Harper Woods, Michigan, USA - DEC 8, 2015
copper color with a long lasting medium head. The aroma is ok but the taste is less than desirable. The taste is off-balanced. A little bit more malty would be nice.

zizzybalubba (1753) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 1, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Jungle Jimís International Market, Fairfield, OH. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, mango, and wet grass. Taste offers citrus and piney hop bitterness with an assertive malt backbone. Mild lingering bitterness on the palate. Highly quaffable.
