COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This mammoth IPA is defined by generous quantities of premium hops and balanced with a premium selection of English malt. Traditionally unfiltered IPAís lead to the slight haze appearance. An extensive dry-hopping process contributes to its very intense floral hop aroma. The IPA is unfiltered and as always, unpasteurized to leave all the natural flavors intact. If youíre at the brewery youíll be able to guess what style of beer every brewer has in his hand. THE BEER YOU'VE BEEN TRAINING FOR!

12 oz bottle. Tasted on 6/17/14. Bottle from Total Wine @ Naples, FL. The aroma had citrus, pine & some malt. The taste was good but didn't quite have the flavor I was expecting from the aroma. Overall a pretty decent IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

My go to IPA. Popped my hop-cherry with this baby years ago and while I swear the recipe has changed maybe it's just my palate. Perfect east coast IPA though slightly on the malty side of the spectrum. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

shorlin (639) - St. Johnís, Newfoundland, CANADA - MAY 8, 2014
Deep amber, nice head. Lots of hop in aroma, some tropical fruit, pineapple and pine. Taste is more balanced, with sweetness from malt to support the the excellent bitter. A great beer.
