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

chickenflea (340) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2013
12oz: Hazy golden color, small white head that settles quickly. Good lacing. Grapefruit aroma with a touch of spiciness. Dried apricot sweetness also in the nose. A very nice aroma. Taste is very sweet with just the right amount of bittering for an IPA. Hops taste more floral than the citrusy aroma promised. The finish is long and steady with no odd tangents. Texture is a little sticky. Carbonation is above average - biting. The carbonation gives the beer a refreshing quality. A nice IPA the selection of hops (Columbia for bittering, and Golding for aroma) made this IPA interesting.

DocJitsu (993) - Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Pours a clear orange-golden color with a short white head. Citrusy nose with enough toasted sweet malt to cut the sharpness. Smooth, wet mouthfeel. Juicy citrus that gets sweetened by the extraoridnarily balanced malt. Excellent IPA.

RRistow12 (265) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours s slightly hazy dark Amber. Off white head. Citrus and pine aroma. Some orange peel and grapefruit. Taste is pretty well balanced. Mild to moderate sweetness with some caramel and toffee. Nice bitterness with grapefruit, pine, orange peel, floral flavors. Great but not quite on par with the best ipas. Still very delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sfontain (811) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2014
12 oz bottle from 6 pack. First sip is surprisingly clean and crisp. Predominantly bright citrus and pine, but it’s immediately clear the body is weak and perhaps even under-carbonated. All the same, strong.

Bottles from Rally Dunedin. Aroma smells like an IPA. Appearance is very welcoming. Bottle looks sick. Love the fish. Palate is weak but smooth. Tastes like a weaker IPA. A little watered down, but very smooth and drinkable. A refreshing beer. Good for hot days and with food. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Eructoblaster (3058) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle - 12oz. Slightly hazy, amber body with a thin off-white frothy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with melon and mango hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries citrusy (mostly grapefruit), malty, and some grainy notes. Ends with a long, robust bitter finish. Very good IPA. Thanks again, Kevin and Christina!

CelticBrew (829) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Pours from 12 oz bottle a hazy copper orange with a fluffy off white head. Aroma is moderately floral, has hoppy flowers, resin, grapefruit, apricot, moderately malty and lightly yeasty. Flavours are pine and pineapple, although the strong carbonation makes detecting them difficult. Resinous finish. This beer’s subdued hops are fine by me, but I disliked the taffy sweetness. An ok beer, but I haven’t bought it since.....
