COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The BALANCED hop monster! This is one IPA with enough MALT BACKBONE to stand up to the high hopping level - 75 IBUs from 100% Columbus hops.

Prufrockstar (1820) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Draft. Pale gold color (not quite amber), clear, white head with good retention. Aroma is pine, citrus, and the garlic fries I just had. Damn they were potent. Some caramel maltiness as well (aside: autocorrect sucks hard - manitees? Malting ng? Wtf). Taste: floral, pine, nice bitterness but not overpowering. Good light, subtle sweet backbone to balance. Medium body, nice carbonation, lasting bitter finish that isn't overpowering. Overall: this is my kind of ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AWISLguy (2284) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 17, 2012
8oz sample at the Taphouse Grill. Pours orangey-copper with a white head. Aroma has pine and flowery hops with citrus and some caramel. Taste is of pine needles, flowery spices, grapefruit with some caramel back. Finishes bittersweet. A bit rough and the pieces do not come together as well as they sound.

Bebum (688) - - OCT 7, 2012
Shiny and clear gold with a large pale blonde head, falls quietly into the glass. Intense, earthy nose. Medium body but intense flavor, good length. Very bitter but well balanced with malt. Grapefruit pith, savoury taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jcartamdg (2867) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Pours a copper gold with a thick white head. Aroma of bitter hops, reminds me of homebrew hop pellets. Taste follows but the malt comes in strong. Balanced malt and hops. Not over the top in body, pretty easy to drink. Not as bitter as I'd like but it was really cool for what it is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2012
It has a bright orange colored body, looks thin, with a bright white head. It has an aroma of slightly stanky hops and is bold, solid and thick. It’s more bitter at a warmer temperature, but easy to drink, strongly hopped late in the boil, and has barely enough caramel to handle the bitterness and thinness of the beer. Still, thin and potent.

On tap at the Crab House in Port Angeles. Pours golden orange with white head. Citrus, hoppy aroma. Nice balance of citrus, bitterness, and hoppiness.

A very delicious IPA. I had a sample platter and all there beers are great. Especially the Hefe. I bought one bomber to take home. I wish I had bought more.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Tap @ Taphouse Grill, Seattle. Hazy amber with a dense, creamy head that leaves some lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel, citrus and bubble gum. Flavor is very sweet with a ruff bitterness. Medium body with a muddy texture. This could be old, overly sweet with an old hop flavor, ugh.
