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!

Chrisco88 (9) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Appearance: Pours a semi-clear, bright gold. Small white head fades rather quickly but a thin lace lingers. Aroma: Quite aggressive aroma. Pungently floral up front but I really liked the lemon, grapefruit, citrus-y flavors towards the end. Nothing but hops here. Taste: Quite refreshing! Bitter and hoppy from the get-go but finishes light, sweet, and citrus-y. Virtually no malt flavor. Palate: Very light-bodied, lively carbonation and a very clean mouthfeel. Overall: Another highly drinkable IPA, I think theyíre finally starting to grow on me :) Great hop flavor without being annoyingly bitter. Great mouthfeel and aftertaste so I almost want to savor the flavor, but itís so light and clean I canít fight the desire to indulge.

Obfuscate (60) - Minneapolis, - NOV 22, 2014
Some citrus and orange on the nose. Fair amount of carbonation. This is pretty refreshing almost drinks like an APA but at 7%. This would be a good one if you want something strong and drinkable.

Bottle @ ZZT X, courtesey of DutchDrebus. Pours a clear golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma has piney resin, loads of grapefruit. Flavor has a big tea influence, Earl Grey or something. Big dry, medium bitter finish. Nice citric influence going on here, very interesting take on a typical IPA. Some good stuff.
