COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A base of pale, Munich, and Carapils malts is just enough to contain the massive hop flavor and aroma packed into this highly drinkable IPA. A blend of four American hop varieties is added four times in the kettle and twice in the fermenter for a complex and layered hop experience. Best served at 45-50˚F in a tulip or English style pint glass.

Pale golden pour with a thick creamy white head. The aroma is awesome. A bit of soft tropical fruit and some kiwi fruitiness. A lovely fresh hop flavour with a bit of soft bitterness. Bright and fresh with some nice grassy notes.

Draught. Clear golden with white head. Fresh citrus and pine smell. Although not excessive the hoppy notes are again present in the taste where they are backed up by light malty notes. A nice balanced IPA

ReggieDunlap (3071) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Pours a clear golden/orange with a thick off white head...great retention and lacing. Aroma has fresh grapefruit and honeydew...very floral. Flavor has follows suit...really notable pink grapefruit and melon flavors...solid bitterness...fresh tasting. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is dry and lingers with pink grapefruit. Very awesome!

12 oz can. Pours a hazy light copper with a thick frothy ivory head. Tons of sticky lacing. Aroma of citrus and pine hops. Very dry and bitter. Thinner body than I imagined. Citrus rinds, pine , resin, and a faint hint of cereal in the back. Not much to it and not complex at all. Just upfront dry bitter. Not very enjoyable.

Caytinator (943) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Pint on tap. Clear dark gold beer, medium lacing, small head. Nice medium aroma, fresh and hoppy. Taste and aftertaste are just OK. It finishes relatively clean and isn’t too overdone with excessive hop oil, but it fails to impress all the same. The bitterness is there, but not enough malt to balance it, in my opinion. Piney, but not particularly aromatic, floral, or complex -- I disagree with the description above. Good, not spectacular.

fresh can from beechner224 pours golden amber with slight floaties and an amazing lace coating. nose pops of hops, resin, pine and citrus right from the start of opening the can. one of the most aromatic beers i have had in a while. Hops continue in the mouth from beginning to end with wisp of malt, slight bitterness. body is light. MOAR please.

Can. Pours a hazy dark amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose has a lot of hoppiness coming off it, with some great floral and citrus notes in there. Taste was quite bitter to me, and tasted very fresh and pleasant. Very nice. Glad I picked up a sixer.
