COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full-flavored hop assault delightfully lacking in balance. A combination of Centennial, Cascade, Simcoe and Columbus hops are used to produce pungent aromas of grapefruit, pine and citrus.

Not exactly the "hop assault" thatís described, at least not super bitter, but a nice solid IPA. Orange body, foamy white head. Citrus. Okay IPA.

Patrickctenchi (3714) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle: Pours clear amber with a tight, beige head. Earthy, aroma, pine....a little unpleasant. Caramel, earthy, malty hop flavour.... Brings to mind roots and leaves....orange peel. Different, but I find that I am enjoying it after the initial scent. Pretty good.

snoworsummer (2166) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Pours hazy copper with a creamy off white head. Tastes hoppy, like pine, grapefruit, resin. Dry feel. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like hops, musk, resin, earth.

sonnycheeba (3569) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Tap at brewery. Pours clear amber with creamy white head. Aroma is floral and grassy hops, cereal and biscuit malts, light orange peel, and lemon zest. Flavor is dry malts, fresh hop bitterness, light citrus esters, and faint grapefruit; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

reberiii (329) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Poured pint from draft. Deep amber, slightly cloudy, no foam in my pour. White lacing from little head. Bitter, citrus hop, but not too fruity. Light body. Very dribkable

portableparty (1912) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a soapy white head that leaves a nice film. Aroma has strong earthy pine some citrus rind and mild malt. Taste has bitter hops of lemon rind, grapefruit and pine which is earthy soil some herbal notes with yeast and malt in the finish. Palate is medium fizzy carbonation slightly juicy with a chalky finish. Iím not totally digging this, but I also find myself wanting more!?

Pored from 12oz bottle. Really a hop bomb here but not in a good way. Tasted off and the hop additions didn't lend smoothness as one would expect. --you've been Dubbed.

ChainGangGuy (4386) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 29, 2013
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a hazed, dingy amber-hued body with a small, altogether brief, whitish head.

Smell: Pine and paper, soapy resins, citric citrus, grasses and muddy, muddled yeast cakes. Oh, some weak toast and pale malts.

Taste: Pale malts, a snap of grains, and a moist mealy quality. Low, short-lived sweetness. Citric orange, resins, tropical fruits, and grassy hops backed with an earthy yeastiness. Moderate bitterness. Hint of shredded mint leaf. Bitter, drying finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Uninteresting, a bit disappointing. Just keep telling yourself "itís for charity, itís for downtrodden animals." Think of the animals!

Blah. Very underwhelming. Aroma is a bit of sourish malt. A bit of metal on the front. No real characteristics here.

Great taste, i like this extreme biterness and herbs flavour. Nice golden colour and low head. Bitter as hell.
