COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ready to buck convention? We took the traditional IPA, originally shipped from Englad to India in the 1700s, and made it bolder and more flavorful - American style. We've added new varieties of highly aromatic American hops to create a distinctive bitterness profile and an incredible hop character. Hop on, hold tight, and enjoy the ride!

Doon (109) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 14, 2009
Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a nice light head that dissipates down to a fine layer within a minute...The aroma is very interesting, almost smells like a sage bush. At first I was turned off, but it slowly grew on me. It has a very crisp almost woody flavor. Very unique.

OzarkElmo (303) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - JAN 31, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2012 Pours a clear gold/light amber with a sizeable white head. Superb aroma - absolutely love it! Definite citrus (tangerine,grapefruit) , pine and very hoppy. Taste - bitter, dry to the end. Head diminishes somewhat, but lacing strong through the finish. Fantastic IPA IMO would definitely buy again - Cheers! Have since enjoyed several times and have always enjoyed this offering!

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - JAN 30, 2009
Cloudy orange with a thick, white head. Citusy nose, orange peel and pine. Flavor is mildly soapy hops and yeast over malt. Tangy. Nice.

Had on tap at Barleyís Brewhaus. Pours clear golden copper with white head. Aroma is hops, pine with touch of malt and citrus. Flavor is mostly hops and pine with malt and some citrus notes. Medium mouthfeel. Finishes bitter. Decent IPA with big pine flavors.

BOLTZ7555 (2939) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 28, 2009
5 Barrel Pale X2: Twice the color, twice the head, twice the lemongrass, twice the bitterness. 24 karat/copper pour with a 2 finger ivory head. Citrus zest combines with grassy, resinous, leafy hops...malt is needed to balance this one out. Just not a lot of complexity here.

Rusty (1543) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 21, 2009
Pours a nice golden color with a slight orange tinge and a foamy white head. Aroma of hops, malt, citrus. Flavor is hoppy, malty, citrusy, grassy. Nice bitter hop finish is balanced out with just enough malt. Good IPA.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 18, 2009
This beer is a classic in all the word. Pours with a rich golden color and a dense lasting head. It just sits there like a dead muledeer. Aromas of citrus rind and a charred hop resonance. Medium nectar with superb effer amplification like Eddie Van Halen doing a solo to Unchained. OK, this one makes me 7 abv mark and this is instant happiness for me. But unlike most at this level it isnít over baring. Itís not a sweet malt bomb. Itís not a switchblade hop killer. Itís refined and unprecedented. A needle in a haystack. This brew has a great disposition that brings a smile to the user.
