COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This mammoth IPA is defined by generous quantities of premium hops and balanced with a premium selection of English malt. Traditionally unfiltered IPA’s 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 you’re at the brewery you’ll be able to guess what style of beer every brewer has in his hand. THE BEER YOU'VE BEEN TRAINING FOR!

Malt: 2 Row, Pale Malt, Munich, 70-80 Crystal, Wheat

Had it on tap at Avenue Pub in New Orleans. Pours a clear amber rich hue with a light head and light hop aroma. The rate is a hop explosion with the strongest notes of grapefruit I have ever had in a beer!!

SlovakSniper (2839) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2013
Une bouteille de 12 onces meilleure avant le 11 février 2014. Une bière cuivrée qui déploie une petite mousse durable. Un nez équilibré et très agréable avec son malt grillé et ses houblons bien orangés. Un goût sympathique et facilement aimable avec son partage presque équitable entre des cultivars proprement américains et des céréales toastées aux petites notes douces. En bouche, un corps de moyenne densité avec un pétillement ferme et une texture qui est à la limite crémeuse. Une finale dictée par des notes florales et fruitées. En conclusion, cette IPA est bien exécutée, charmante et facile à boire.

Really not a bad beer. Has a good flavor of both hop and malt with a nice aroma. After taste stuck around on the palate a little to long. Would drink again.

In a sampler from my son. It poured a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma was of citrus, pine, malt and some grass. The taste was of grapefruit, lemon, caramel malt and grass. Very nice.

Bottle. Deep orange amber with an off-white head. Tropical fruit hops in abundance play with toasty, lightly bready malts. Long bitter finish. Solid, enjoyable, balanced.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Bottle from all grain Duane, gracias! Hazed amber with a medium slowly dissolving ecru head. Aroma is sweet and doughy with caramel, citrus and floral notes. Taste is sweet and balanced with citrus, caramel and some semi-vegetal notes and a medium bitter crescendo.

Bottle. Copper pour with a thick white head. Orange, pine apple, orange peel. Great sweet citrus aroma. Body is lighter than expected. Good carbonation but short and watery finish

Best by 23APR13 Hazed tanned leather with a solid fine sheet of light tan foam. Smells like mangoes, light malt, some bits of bubble gum, and more mango. Although pretty one dimensional, the fruity character of the nose is really nice. Flavor follows through a bit more malt balanced with some light bitterness, hints of wood and still plenty of fruity sweet mango with a touch of grapefruit pith. Medium on full bodied for the style with a light, fine carbonation and a wet finish. I bet this hits the spot on a hot southern day
