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

My usual go-to beer and one of the beers that got me into this world. I’m glad they started labeling the bottling dates more clearly, and on the actual label now. Piney, grapefruity, citrusy goodness. I think, for the price, it’s one of the best IPA’s out there.

Above average ipa. Doesn't quite have the hop punch that it advertises but smooth, easy drinking and pleasant overall. Would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

degbert (1344) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle. Dark gold with a high, pillowy, white, mixed-grain head; amazingly solid foam. Nose is lime, spruce, lilac, fir, and tangerine. Caramel sweetness on the front of the tongue; low carbonation leads to some citrus and pine bitterness on the sides and back of the mouth. Well balanced with a little pepper on the back of the mouth. Spicy finish. Relatively mild but quite good.

Onslow (1256) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear amber brew with nearly white head. Crisp aroma of grass,floral and citrus. Taste is dry,little malt, grassy hops at the start with a bit of citrus emering near the finish. Lighter in body. Tasty IPA with a clean and straightforward hops profile.

Had this one at World of Beer Fest Milwaukee. Unfortunately it was located right next to some other really great IPAs, and by comparison didn’t stack up. Pours slightly hazy, bitter hops, not much citrus. Meh.

Caramel and malt on the nose. Well balanced bitterness and citrus that are up front and linger. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jefcon (1491) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Wheat on the nose and the palate. Still, there’s plenty of bitter notes, some hay, full-bodied.

Hiero (158) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Great hop taste throughout without too much complexity. Small, off-white head that slowly disappears. The bitterness is balanced and disappears into a dry, clean finish.

cheap (4525) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2015
clear yellow orange with a big friendly rocky head. slight bo aroma. yes, pretty good impact with its dull thud and all. quite hoppy but not sure if its really terrible like its 100 rated brethren. funny there are over 1000 ratings and this is the first i’ve heard of it. pretty funny the date code is slightly off center on teh spot that sposed to show the best if before date, go figger if they were really watching what goes on in qc, heheh. yea, the year is practically off to tside so it blends in with the yellow label, hahah. yes, really big on style kick of hops in this one. seems to maintain head tot he end.
