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 (644) - 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.

1/19/16. Can. Pours hazy orange w a nice two finger head that sticks around for a little while. Light pine and fruit nose. Bitter doesn't hit right off but it warms up over time. Not an aggressive west coaster but a nice middle ground. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brokensail (14529) - San Leandro, California, USA - DEC 22, 2015
On tap @ Westbrook. Hazed burnt orange colored beer with some soapy white foam. It’s got that sort of typical old school/midwestern IPA character to it with a lot of bread, caramel, and high bitterness. Some decent enough citrus character (grapefruit) to make it palatable, but too much sweetness and bitterness for my tastes.

TaxiDriver (1640) - Stadland, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2015
It tasted very fruity and sweet, grapefruit but not sour. The white foamy head is medium large, the body is dark orange. A light bitter taste, a little bit fruity. The body is light, dry and creamy with a flat carbonation.

ciocanelu (591) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 10, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Slightly hazy orange color with off-white head. Aroma is balanced with a nice underlying malt sweetness and some juicy hops. Taste starts hoppy and slightly sweet with caramel malt and ripe fruit notes. Finish and aftertaste are quite bitter with lots of grapefruit and resiny hops. Body is medium and has good carbonation. A more classic approach of the IPA style but very well executed.

zimbo (834) - SCOTLAND - NOV 28, 2015
Light yellow with a big beaming white head this lightish herbally ipa. Not big on the palate but light and delicate. Good as a training beer but a tad underwelming for this old vet.
