This unfiltered amber ale is packed full of hop bitterness, flavor and aroma. IPA is the most bitter beer style and it is enjoyed by people we refer to as “hopheads.” We dry hop this beer with a combination of English and American hop varieties for a wonderfully aromatic finish.

Sebring, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 16 oz can. Slight haze to the light copper pour, light bone-colored head that sticks around a while. Aroma is kind of hit and miss and not very IPA-like. has a touch of molasses sweetness, some brown sugar. Flavor has some vanilla accents. a touch of light citrus bitterness. Mouthfeel is decently thick. Decent for a domestic budget IPA.

can - Golden-orange pour, one finger white head, citrus hop aroma... it has a medium body and is pretty bitter but at an average level at most for the style. Overall it’s balanced and fairly good.

16oz can via trade. Poured to mouth. Strong grapefruit nose with some caramel and toast. Taste is more malt forward. Full of toast, bread crust, bread roll. Not much hop flavor comparatively. Light to medium and focused on a pithy fruit ring presence. Meh.

tmongoose (2074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Draft that poured a medium orange with white head and nice lacing. Smooth bitterness throughout medium malt with decent flavor. At first this beer was s little off to me but as I drank it it was pretty good like the smoothness and decent overall flavor.

From a big warm can this stuff looks like viscous bitter ipa with a big rocky head, and it is. Terribly on style, what else can be said? Wew, volatile mild hop perfume aroma. No way is this just 7%.

On tap at the brewery. Pours hazy golden color, white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is citrus, lemon, orange peel. Malt backbone. Taste is citrus, good balance of malt and hops. Solid. Bit of a weak body.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - FEB 23, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 Can: Rustic amber color, 50% opacity with a dingy, off-white head. Fluffy, slow to recede, leaving lots of lacing behind. Aroma is potent. Pine, citrus rind, grapefruit, very ashy, peppery, spicy. Hint of toasted biscuit malt. A bit of dish soap pungency in the aroma, too. Flavor isn’t as bitter as expected from the aroma. Big bready & toasted malt base. Lightly sweet with maybe even a hint of caramel. Leafy, spicy, ashy hops with notes of white pepper, grapefruit, orange zest, & mild earthiness. Drinks more like a slightly old American Pale Ale. Heavier body, semi-wet finish.

Pours a clear caramel, little carbonation and a fizzy light head. Basic malt aroma. Decent hops flavor on the front, bit a bitter follow-through and end. Some astringent and overt alcohol flavorings. Sticky mouthfeel and sweet aftertaste.
