Bold, spicy and menacingly delicious, this American-hopped India Pale Ale offers an aromatic punch and then follows through with a lasting, full-bodied finish.

Bottle: Poured a shimmering opaque light copper-amber ale into the glass. Decent 2 finger rocky cap lasts well and laces. Aroma is a massive gob-smack of Cascade and Warrior hops with a big floral-grapefruit bouquet, some earthy sweetness from the malts. Impression: Substantial malt backbone, soapy mouth feel, medium-light body... citrusy hop-rich smooth character. Profile: Up front rich amber malts attack for just a second then a rush of NW hops produce a acerbic marmalade on toast effect....mid palate the hops get stronger as the bready toasty malts drop back,,,,as you approach the finish it turns slightly dry as the hops still hang in creating a bittering finish and lingering metallic aftertaste. This is a rock solid crafted APA with all the Pacific NW hop flair out pacing the big malts...not as full bodied and balanced as Libery ale but good standard sipping fare for hop heads.

This is a very heavily hopped brew. It is medium amber and cloudy in appearance. The hops overbalance the malt flavors somewhat, but overall a fine ale. Medium to full bodied.

EcnarM (71) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Pours a dark golden color from the keg with a medium thick white head. Aroma was weaker than expected. Grapefruit comes through first in the taste with moderate balancing of the malts behind. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours hazy orange. Strong citrus notes. Extreme grapefruit taste but finishes clean. A great IPA that Iíll come back to.

MadRobin (1834) - Silver Spring, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Clearly, bright orangey amber with a 1-finger khaki head and good lacing. Aroma of caramel, light fruit and floral hops. Taste of caramel, citrus and fruity hops. Medium body and high/medium carbonization. The name of this beer was is deceptive. (Malt Devil would be closer to reality.) It's a fairly straightforward fruity IPA with a lot of malt and only a little hop complexity. Pleasant to drink, but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pour. Subtle, if not plain, aroma of beans and nuts. Slight caramel. Hoppy but not so much, good strong palate but was hoping for more flavor. Nothing special.

mathieuc (1146) - Quťbec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2014
Pours a good copper with a small white head that leaves close to no lacing. Nose is of hop extract and maybe a little tropical fruits. Not unpleasing but slightly awkward and unrefined to me. Taste is strongly bitter without any malt background to balance it out so it is just harsh really, lke strong hop juice. Iím not one to complain about the obliteration of malt usually but in this case it would surely have helped. Body was medium, carbonation pretty high and mouthfeel lightly sticky. Overall I was underwhelmed, it was lacking finesse and I cannot understand how someone would give 4+ to that.

This was a good beer, not as hoppy as expected. I think that this was a little hyped up honestly I heard a lot of positive things about this one and I do agree with most but it was an 8 beer in my opinion.

Nicely malty, sweet with a nice citrus/pine hops bitterness. I canít believe it took me this long to try it (at least I donít remember trying it before). Itís actually quite good.
