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!

BOLTZ7555 (2999) - 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.

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.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a huge 3 finger foamy beige head that leaves delicate lacing. The nose is ripe citrus hops and malt. Taste is tangerine, ripe pink grapefruit and light caramel with a tart grapefruit finish. Medium mouth feel. Nice and refreshing IPA. Reminds me a lot of Four Peaks Hop Knot.

Strykzone (5897) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2009
Pours a nice copper with a big frothy white head. Beautiful lacing. Aroma is full of grapefruit with a good amount of caramel. Grapefruit was not nearly as dominant in the flavor. It offered more caramel, pine, grass, and spice. A very nice IPA.

machfive55 (358) - Columbia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2009
Poured a brilliant and clean dark yellow, light amber with little head but the carbonation was good and left lacing. The aroma was strongly grapefruit hops with little malt. There was a strong citrus flavor, particularly grapefruit along with some pine notes at first, the bitterness is right up front and dominant. As the beer warms the bitterness mellows and the beer really mellows out and blends into a nicely balanced drink. Good job.
