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!

On tap at Flying Saucer. Pours beautiful copper amber. Wow! All pine and bitter grapefruit. An outstanding example. Actually reminds me of Lagunitas Sucks! I wish I could do a back to back comparison.

Butelka, 0,3 l. Aromat i smak jasnych owoców tropikalnych, mango, grapefruit. Wszystko w typ piwie jest perfekcyjne. Goryczka średnia ku wysokiej. Chce się rozkoszować tym piwem bez końca. Niesamowicie orzeźwiające, bardzo pijalne, szkoda, że tak szybko znika. Piwo może uchodzić za wzór stylu. Zakupione w Cardiff, Walia.

Bue en bouteille de 355ml. IPA proche de la perfection. Nez ananas, équilibre parfait, pas sucrée et finale fruitée. Very good !

jhamp9 (1167) - Corinth, Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Clear yellow orange pour with a big lasting white head. Aroma is citrus rind, pine, and resin. Taste follows with a nice caramel sweetness to balance out the clean bitterness. Piney aftertaste. Medium body. Nice IPA.

Beautiful citrus bright leafy aroma! Light amber pour. Instant refreshment on the start. Bitterness is definitely present but not over poured. Perfect ipa.

Perfect IPA. Rich, fruity, sweet and suculent. Can’t fault this beer at all, perfect in the style.

Bottle from Kroger. The aromas are citrus, pine, resin. The mouthfeel is dry bitter and had a light body and good carbonation. Cheers!

I am absolutely bias in favor of this IPA. Even if they’re biting on the style of Anchor’s bottle label with the elephant. It is GOOD, oh so good. This is a hoppy IPA with a good old bang of hop. The battle in your mouth is over your soul. Enjoy my friends. There are times the boozy taste will hit, just swallow. This is one of my Favorite IPA’s. Yet another great reason to visit Fort Collins, Colorado.

Grapefruit and satsuma. Nice bitterness as required for 7%. Not malty at all. Green tea?

commonmac (452) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Tap at Old Chicago Plymouth. Pseudo pint glass. Always a big fan of this beer so surprised I haven’t rated it to date. Hazy copper color with solid lacing and frothy head. Aroma heavy on citrus and hops. Pine and resin present. Bright, refreshing taste with a pleasant mouthfeel. Slight bitterness with a good balance of subtle sweetness. A go to option when available.

Look: pours a light orange color. Cloudy. Bright white head. Smell: juicy fruit gum. Grapefruit. Orange. Pineapple. Taste: grapefruit. Orange. Tangerine. Big citrus fruit. Pineapple. Caramel. Feel: extremely dry. Medium carbonation. Thin mouth feel. Leaves a nice film on the mouth. Overall: great beer. Like the overwhelming hops and and how it adds to the dryness. Also like how it makes you want another sip after you drink it. First drank: home 12/7/14
