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.

Light amber pour, off white head. Loads of malt up front, taking away from the hops. Very weird beer that I really didn’t enjoy a whole lot. It was like a bready flavored drink with hops. Meh.

Braudog (5581) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Bottle. Nice, centric pour ... amber, slightly hazy, but not too much. Thin head. Definite hoppy nose, bordering on the earthy and smoky edge. Drinks with a nice rugged character, that little bit of smoke playing around the edges of an otherwise citric drink, easy on the palate and quite drinkable. (#5263, 9/22/2013)

TylerGreenDC (271) - - SEP 15, 2013
12oz bottle. Slightly cardboardy aroma. Taste is intense bitterness, followed by roasted caramel malts. The malts are so strong that you kind of forget about anything else. Very much an East Coast IPA, and kind of a meh example of the style.

probstblueribbon (2864) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2013
12 fl oz bottle from a friend of a friend, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear amber with a decent tan head. Aroma: Lightly mashy/brothy, earthy notes, smells a bit British, peppery and resinous, decent sweet, biscuity malts, a little caramel, oddly floral or soapy, a bit fruity as it warms. Palate: Medium body, very relaxed effervescence. Flav.: Lightly peppery, a little soapy and floral, a bit of resin, a hint of butterscotch, dark bread crust, so-so; dry with moderate bitterness and a lightly buttery, peppery finish.

Not working for me.

TATE (285) - Lubec, Maine, USA - SEP 2, 2013
On tap at Cohill’s. Pours amber with a thin head. Fruity aroma. Mellow maltiness quickly taken over by but hop bitterness with both grapefruit and piney flavor. This one got even more bitter as it got warmer. This is a well built west coast style IPA and I have scored it a little lower because its not my favorite style.

PhilJackson80 (298) - Oklahoma, USA - AUG 30, 2013
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 12 oz bottle. The beer pours to a cloudy golden color with very little head. The aroma is a grass & earthy notes to it. The flavor has a medium body to it with slightly bitter finish. Overall an average IPA.

Draft at the growler NYC. Pours a cloudy hazy looking orange bronze color with a nice lacing. Taste is not overly hoppy. Very drinkable. A nice session iPa ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
