For now, this is the beer against which all Midwestern beers will be judged. Pure citrusy hops without any malt undertones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2012 This is really good. I have driven past brew kettle a few times but from now on I will stop in and see what they have to offer. I am an IPA lover and I must say this is heads above anything I have tasted. Piney citrusy in the most assertive way possible without being overpowering. Awesome, truly awesome. I canít imagine what better tastes like.

Fantastic ipa from a small brewery near cleveland. This beer has a nose that you could smell for hours. The most fragrant and delicious ipa on the market

This is my new favorite ipa. I love the assertive citrus and tropical fruits in both the aroma and the flavor. Orange, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, and maybe some passion fruit.very balanced and very drinkable.

Pours a clear gold with billowy two finger head. Decent lacing. Fruit forward aroma. Redolent of white grapefruit, mango, with a little dank, and a slight whiff of cat pee. Outstanding flavor, juicy tropical fruits strike the palate first. Pleasant bitter aftertaste make this an extremely drinkable IPA. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Finishes dry. Overall, a well crafted brew and a model of what IPAs should smell and taste like! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, compliments of Matt. Pours a glowing orange, small thin head and lacing. Aromas are tropical citrus, white oak, pineapple, tangerine, pine, funky skunk. Taste is fresh and tangy citra hops, guava, onion, vanilla, cheese, cherry tasting malts. Nice and balanced and perfectly bitter at 70 ibus. Reminds me of a zombie dust. Amazing.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear golden/copper with very little head. Aromas of citrus fruits and hops. Sweet citrus hop flavors, a little pine and resin. Very nice IPA.
