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.

Drjohnrock (426) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Poured from twelve ounce can purchased at Growlers in Hilton Head Island SC and tasted on July 13, 2012. Cloudy gold hue, small white head, nice sweet hoppy aroma with definite grapefruit notes, delicious bittersweet flavor with grapefruit being present in the taste as well as the aroma. This beer has a bold presence without being overwhelming. This brew would be nearly perfect if the hops were just a tiny bit more assertive but that’s a very minor quibble. I would love to try this on draft. A world class IPA.

Koelschtrinker (9996) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - APR 17, 2014
Fruchtiger und blumiger Hopfenantrunk, vollmundig. Die Hopfigkeit wird breiter, wenig bitter, nun weniger fruchtig, dafür deutlich grasig. Hell würzig, frisch, die Bitterkeit nimmt zu, bleibt aber immer angenehm und harmonisch. Gut! 12/11/11/12/11/12

ajnepple (1672) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2014
12 oz can from Mile High Wine & Spirits. Orange and light hazy appearance with a sticky, lingering white head. Aroma of resinous hops, pine, tropical fruit, citrus zest and caramel malts. Similar flavor, juicy, resinous, medium to heavy bitterness, lightly fruity and mild sweetness. Medium body. Pretty dank.

arminjewell (5716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2014
Pour out of 12 oz can, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, hints of orange peel, slight grain, hints of grapefruit as well but seems a bit old. Taste is a mix of white fruit, orange, grapefruit into some caramel, toffee, old hops, finishing slightly bitter, sweet, dry. Pretty tasty, but definitely not fresh, will rerate hopefully with fresh batch

Spab (2126) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2014
12 oz can from Premier Gourmet. Pours a lightly hazy golden colour with average-sized white head. Aroma is balanced with sweetish caramel malts and citrusy, spicy hops. Flavour is lightly grainy, sweetish caramel, solid citric hops and some peppery spice character. Average body. Solid IPA.

blankboy (5798) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2014
[Can (12oz)] Pours a hazy yellow-gold with a large frothy off-white head and some lacing. Nice resiny and fruity hop aroma, a bit herbal and bready as well. Flavour’s hoppy and fruity and a bit herbal -- simple but pleasant. Moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied. Really good stuff.

Doofgoblin (267) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 5, 2014
A very strong citrus rind aroma and taste permeates this brew. It’s also got some other subtle characters as well. It’s also not extremely bitter, which makes it sort of summery. I like this one.
