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!

ARH (294) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma is that of citrus, bread, and caramel. Itís a slightly hazy orange amber color with a white, fluffy head. The taste is a medium high bitter and a medium sweetness. It has a light, zippy carbonation to go with the oily - thin texture. The medium full body finishes with a grain quality and citrus peel flavor. The aftertaste is that of bread and grains which lingers for a bit.

DiarmaidBHK (3347) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Draft at Brixx Woodbridge. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Has some solid grapefruit on the nose. The grapefruit hop flavor bursts onto the tongue. Very drinkable and balanced. Nice bitterness on the finish to keep things interesting. Nice!

cmiller54hr (35) - Manitou, Kentucky, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Great IPA. Poured a hazy copper with minimal head. Grapefruit and citrus notes meet a huge hop aroma. Huge taste. Very refreshing for an IPA. Possibly the best Iíve had in a while

For some reason when I scanned this beer it came up as sweet water IPA... I was drinking harpoons UFO White... My rating is for that. Very light flavor and aroma.. Has an almost"water" like quality. Not bad... Not great.

Frothmeister (544) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
12fl oz bottle. Pours clear, and the colour of honey. Big grapefruit notes on the nose, with light resinous hops, faint green vegetal notes, and very faint pot. LOTS of grapefruit, citrusy pith, with tropical fruit, light caramel, and good bitterness up front that leads into clean mineral notes, light metallic hops, and more citrus in the finish. Nothing to complain about. Solid.

Barreras (931) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Pours a rich amber color with a full floral aroma. Taste is simple, with complex flavors of fruit, spice, and hops throughout. I tasted banana, and clove which seemed to meld together wondefully. The mixture lasted just long enough to satisfy my palate and then quickly fade away leaving a little hop aftertaste. This was a very good mild flavored IPA.

bytemesis (2928) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Can. Pours clear orange with a large beige creamy head, puffy and slow to dissipate leaving nice lacing in its wake. Aroma is citrus, pine, floral, dank. Flavor is light sweet, light plus bitter, piney. A bit metallic, not the greatest. Medium body.

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
