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.

Massive hop profile is a good way to describe this beer. Piney flavor, decent bittering, not too bad an aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GSH1976 (294) - Delaware, USA - MAY 25, 2016
Pours a very hazy gold with plenty of fluffy head. Aroma is rather muted with some herbal notes and maybe a hint of citrus and what I would best describe as bread. Taste is orange citrus and bitter with some caramel malt eviddent. Medium bodied and very easy to drink.

12 oz can. Pours golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head, nice lacing and lively carbonation. Aroma is of citrusy hops, ripe fruit and bready malt. Body is medium and smooth. Citrusy hops, bready malt and tropical fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long, dry and very hoppy. Very good IPA.

hohops (709) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2016
Appearance- cloudy light Amber, a clingy white head of 1-2 fingers which gradually diminishes. Aroma- creamy malt, lots of orange, orange peel, grapefruit, lots of mango, pine, hops, very fruity. Taste- soft bitter fruit, hop resin, pineapple juice, mango, creamy sweet malty undertones. Bitter clingy finish, juicy and full mouthfeel. Very nice IPA.

beer-yum (1212) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 20, 2016
Citrus aroma in a hazy golden pour. Restrained hop forward balance with sweet fruit body. Finish is surprisingly absent and let’s the brew down in the end.

superspak (4309) - Michigan, USA - MAY 19, 2016
12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 3/17/2016. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 2-3 finger dense and fluffy off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, pine, honey, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of juicy citrus/pine hops, moderate bready malt, and fruity yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, pine, honey, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, apricot, mango, melon, lemon/orange rind, pine, honey, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/pine hops, moderate bready malt, and fruity yeast flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, that increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/pine hops, moderate bready malt, and fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Underdogs88 (316) - New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2016
Low citrus character with notes of passion fruit. Appearance is a hazy yellow gold with an average head. Flavor has notes of grass, orange, bread. Bitterness medium, but harsh. Mouthfeel is medium light with medium carbonation. Overall, the hop character is grassy and harsh. Not a pleasant IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Zeswaft (1597) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2016
My time in Charleston is coming to an end, and while there are few things I will miss, this is one of them. One of the few 6 packs i can justify at $11. Pours cloudy copper. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, buttery biscuits. Flavor is supper smooth orange and citrus with healthy candy and bready sweetness. This beer will always be a go-to if available. Cant overstate its drinkability. It’s an IPA version of mac and jacks amber.
