COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship IPA is brewed to kick your taste buds in the ass and leave your palate begging for mercy. Pine, resin, and citrus aromas leap out of the glass. The extreme bitterness hits next, to give you your fix. The finish is dry, clean, and leaves you wanting more. We put a crazy amount of hops into this beer just for you, fellow hop heads. Enjoy.

16oz can shared by Ben. Filtered orange-tan. Foamy white head. Rather classic US IPA. Has a nice orange tone in the hops. Nice depth there. Toasty English malt and yeast. Easy going. Good.

Ratman197 (9961) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2014
16 oz can poured a clear orange amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of biscuit, grapefruit zest, pine and tangerine. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, grapefruit zest, light pine and a hint of earthiness with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish.

Trade with RobertDale-16oz can. Pours rich lt tan-amber. Pleasant nose-pine/citrus zest-lemon, cramel-lt/med malt. T-dank resin/lemon hops, carmel-lt/med malt. Not overly bitter, more late addition/dry hops provide a nice hop flavor and aroma. As it warms, lemon changes to orange.

kevinator (980) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Reasonably good. Above average piney and citrus hop aroma. Average copper color with a white head. Weighted palate but not overbearing. Strong carbonation, which enhanced the bitterness. Harsh bitterness up front that subsides and gives way to a moderate malt sweetness. Decent but not overly unique.

MacBoost (1328) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2014
16oz tallboy via trade extra. Pours a clear light amber with almost no head, even when poured aggressively. Aromas of a little soap and a lot of pine. Some citrus. Very low carbonation and pretty passive hops make this highly chuggable and slightly refreshing, but not aggressive or bold at all. Taste is bitter and semi sweet. Flavors of some tropical fruit,some pine bark. Finish is limp and watery. Meh. I mean,there’s nothing bad about it but not much good either. Flaccid is the best way to describe it.

Ferris (4499) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 15, 2014
Draft - Spicy orange with a dank hop profile. Clearish copper with a thin white head. Dank, leafy, vegative hops with a mellow persistent bitterness. Nice.

umich03jm (2055) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Can thanks to WillRunForBeer. Pours a murky orange-brown color with a small foamy head that quickly fades. Aroma suggests more of a malty IPA. Lots of caramel and toffee mixed in with the pine and juicy citrus. Tastes sugary sweet up front with a moderate bitterness in the finish. Juicy citrus, pine, caramel, and grapefruit peel. Medium body. Mouthfeel is a little syrupy. Pretty solid but more caramel and malt than I usually like in my IPA’s.

mcberko (6708) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
500mL can, pours an opaque orange with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out pine, resinous hops, and caramel malts. Flavour brings out loads of piney hops, loads of resin, and a nice big caramel malt backing. Not too much sweetness, with ample hoppiness. Very nicely assembled IPA, better than its current ratings suggest.

TXBadger (1421) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 29, 2014
Pours a clear golden color with white head. Citrus, pine, and grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes crisp, clean, and dry.

Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 27, 2014
Can sample courtesy of dak. It pours with a deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up floral hops, some pine resin and then thin hits of molasses off in the background. The taste is nice and has some hoppy teeth. I get a dash of malts and roasted malts before pleasing pine hop resin and a jab of citrus hops and firm floral hops take over the experience. The hops are balanced and blended with each other to create a tasty flavor harmony. Darn tasty IPA
