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!

My favourite IPA without a doubt. A perfect blend of both fruits and citrus and complex! The beer hits initially like a good IPA should, with hops, and then transends into a fruity after taste finished off with a final taste of spices. I wish I still lived in Fort Collins so I could get this fresh.

Solid IPA. Pours a coppery orange, hardly any head, bit of lacing. Very subtle malty aromas. Malty, nice grapefruit and other citrus flavors, not as bitter as I would have expected (you might call it halfway between pale ale and IPA, with tons of flavor). Crisp, slightly oily, very refreshing. This is the kind of beer that I could drink all day long.

Pleasant aroma of brown sugar and pine. Standard appearance, almost like a pilsner, light for an ipa. Refreshing taste, hoppy enough but extremely drinkable. Good malt background that is not overpowering. This could become a go to for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Delicious. Really fresh and well balanced. Juicy hops and a nice malt backbone. Good stuff. Would purchase again.

shigadeyo (3287) - 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.

Bottle@The Flying Pig, London (04/06/2015) - hazy golden coloured pour with white head. Aroma and taste is tropical and citrus fruity, hoppy and malty, some caramel, tangerine, grapefruit, pine needles, hoppy bitter finish. Decent.

BeerBunker (923) - 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.

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 (2127) - 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.
