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!

vikingguy (913) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Gold with tall foamy white head. Floral orange citrus aroma. Taste is malty, fairly rich and balanced by a hefty piney, citrus hop presence. Long bitter finish. Moderately creamy texture. Very nice IPA, not in my top 5, but definitely in my top 10 IPA’s.

shigadeyo (3246) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Aroma of caramelized toffee malt, honey and citrus herb hops. Appearance is hazy golden orange color with a large, puffy, lasting, off white head. The flavor delivers exactly what the aroma presented along with nice floral, herbal tea and a touch of pine in the finish. Medium body and silky texture. This is a really great IPA that reminds me of the IPA days before all of the citrusy "super" hops.

BeerBunker (898) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2015
On tap. Pours. Hazy golden with a big, foamy white head. Aroma is of hops, tropical fruit, pine, and biscuit malt. Smells good. Taste is of mildly bitter hops with lots of tropical fruit. A lot of pine in there as well. Has a very biscuity. Malt backbone. Lingering hop burn. Drinks really easy, and has a lot of carbonation. I could drink quite a few of these.

bb (7335) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle. Amber beer with a dark cream head. Caramel and light grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit and pine flavor with caramel. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Grapefruit and caramel lingers with pine.

piscator34 (2114) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 12, 2015
Draft. Pale orange in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of florals and white grapefruit, along with a bit of pale malt. Balanced flavors of grapefruit, toasted grain, and pine cone. Lighter bodied than expected with a clean bitterness. Definitely lighter and less resin-y than old school IPAs, but without the tropical notes of the newer school ones. Very solid overall.

This is perfection when it comes to IPA. It has it all, perfect bitterness and a well balanced taste. Probably the best beer in the world!

Tonkatruck (26) - SPAIN - APR 22, 2015
Bottle Beermerchants.com Bright gold, small off whit head. Grapefruit danky nose, tea leaf little eatery with a bit of yogurty sourness. Nice balance of bitter, medum body with good mouthfeel. Flavour, hoppy foresty with peach,berry,orange and marmalade. Interesting, complex, clever, tasty and moorish with a waft of an English style about it.

bartzluke (270) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 21, 2015
12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Moderate produces a nice white pillowy head. Lasting and have lots of lacing. Very hazy, moderate carbonation. Golden-orange. Nose is pine and citrus. Mouthfeel is moderate. Taste is great. Lots of bitter citrus up front, then some malty balance in the middle. The end more bitter hoppiness. Overall a solid hop-forward IPA.
