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!

Golden straw with small white head. Big citrus hop aroma. Flavor is a nice blend of malty sweet, citrus, and bitter. Very nice and balanced beer.

ForlornHope (286) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours pale amber with a thin head. Nice aroma - rich hop, floral, almost peach-like. Taste is slightly sweet to start, then very bitter. Firm sappy malt base, tastes of wine gums and soft fruits (peach again). Long dry and bitter finish. Medium carbonation. Very tasty.

Clear golden, light tan head. Tropical fruits, light resin, honey. Quite bitter, some solidly malty biscuity sweetness. Medium body, medium length finish, some oiliness. Good.

After numerous times drinking this one, making a formal review. Bottled. Pours amber & with small white head. Light citrus nose. Well balanced (it hides the 7% pretty well) with a bitter finish.

Rhombic (78) - SPAIN - JAN 25, 2016
Bottle, 355ml. [After a great experience with their porter, heading off to the next beer with this brewery, let’s see if it is as good as I imagine] Pours amber with foamy head, mostly lasting - great lacing. Aromas of citrus and resin, some caramel, quite strong, hoppy and very floral. Immediately tons of flavours, especially dry resin-like ones, a bit woody, citrus, fruity-estery. Not bitter though. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation and astringent finish. Very good. By the way, extremely well balanced alcohol!

weordie (568) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2016
Pours burnt orange with a thick head. A hoppy, fresh aroma. A nice, hoppy flavour with a full mouthfeel.

monkeychugg55 (991) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Clear copper with s small head. The aroma is spicy, floral, citrus, and rich caramel malt. Mostly traditional ipa hop aroma. The flavor brings our more caramel, reminds me of two hearted, but with different hops. Full body and some balancing bitterness. Not bad.

Bulk_Carrier (3164) - 1st Republic, Vermont, USA - JAN 7, 2016
Thanks Brandon. This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a semi-hazy burnt golden amber color with a one finger sustaining white head. Bubbles roamed in and out of the head, but it still looked nice for the most part. Tired bubbly lacing clings to the glass nicely. The smell starts off with some sweet ruby red grapefruit pulp. Light citrusy-rind like bitterness runs into the blend. A little bit of pepper spice charms the underneath part of this. The taste was moderately bitter with a nice dry sweetness of the grapefruity hops lead into the aftertaste and cherish a dry citrusy sort of finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body with a decent sessionable feel to it. Carbonation feels good for an AIPA as a good amount of bitterness from the hops hits my tongue in a good appropriate harsh feel. Overall, nicely done AIPA that I know I would have again.

Lacho (40) - USA - JAN 1, 2016
Beautiful golden amber colored pour, nice foam that lasts several seconds, resin aromas, very subdued taste does not have the typical IPA kick. 7% alcohol is not present, very well balanced.

Bottle from Bradley’s. Copper pour with a small soapy head. Sticky orange aroma. Flavour has loads of orange citrus hops. Decent bitterness.
