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!

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Bottle sampled at Noog Four-0 5/31/08: Pours a clear deep golden with a nicely-lacing clingy white head. Aroma of grassy grapefruity hops and lightly sweet toasty pale malts. Body starts with decent effervescent carbonation and some grainy sweet pale malts and resiny bittering and flavor hops before a bittersweet finish. A decent IPA.

Maddog (507) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - JUN 11, 2009
Had on draft at the brewery. Incredibly fresh and floral. An amazing IPA coming in at 7% and 60 ibu’s. Must have serious additions of late hops and dry hops. This beer is just a mouthful of citrus hop goodness.

scoth (663) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Pours clear amber, with a medium beige head, good lacing. Very strong pine, grapefruit, and grass aroma, with some caramel underneath. Medium body, relatively dry. Lots of hop flavors stand out, mostly grapefruit but some subtle grass, pine, and faint floral notes too. There’s some solid caramel flavor tucked under the layers of hops. Fairly strong, long lasting bitter aftertaste.

dionysus (1485) - Arizona, USA - MAY 14, 2009
Bottle pours clear gold with a small, dense white head. Aroma is very hop present, displaying notes of grapefruit, lemongrass, and slight toffee. Doughy malt flavor takes a complete backseat to the citrus and pine that show through. The overall mouthfeel is medium bodied and semi-oily. The finish is long lasting, dry and bitter. Overall, a nice IPA.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 11, 2009
Pours with an orange-gold body topped by a thin head with some lacing. It’s slightly sweet and hoppy with a nice piney, grapefruity hoppiness and light malty undertones. Light to medium bodied and smooth with a bit of dryness.

ajm (1072) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Bottle from Sun Devil. Nice aroma of sweat and weed - those are the hops we’re dealing with. Color is brown orange with a tall firm white head. Flavor is resinous hops and dark citrus rind. Had mine warm so it wasn’t refreshing, exactly, but the craftsmanship was plain to see.

glennmastrange (2621) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 29, 2009
Bottle. Moderate malt aroma of roasted, heavy pine for the hops, moderate soap for the yeast, with hints of pepper and a fruity/winey note in the background. Head is large, frothy, yellowish to start, then turns to creamy white. It has excellent lacing and is fully lasting. Color is slightly hazy sparkling amber. Flavor is moderate to heavily acidic, and finishes lightly acidic, moderate to heavily bitter, and a touch sour. Palate is medium, oily, has a carbonation between soft and lively, and finishes lightly dry. A nice balance in this beer, and the characteristics you’d expect in an IPA.
