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.

ThisWangsChung (826) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Reviewed 1/15/2013. 12 oz bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass. A: Pours a golden amber color. The head is a one finger white color with poor retention. S: This seems to take the herbal/piny route as far as hop profiles go. There is a hint of grapefruit peel as well, but this is mostly pine. Underlying that even further are some biscuity malts and some Simcoe cattiness. The aroma isn’t quite my cup of tea, but it’s alright. T: Again with the piny hop profile to start. The hops come across as being generically bitter with no real hop flavors aside from a vague grapefruit finish. Only truly distinctive flavor note I can pick up is green tea in the midtaste. The finish gradually becomes a bit like - dare I say - Windex after some sips. It’s not particularly good, but it’s mild enough where I don’t really sweat drinking this too much. M: I enjoy the crisp dryness of the body, but the texture squeezes far too much hop harshness out of the flavors it seems. The lingering aftertaste is very resinous and oily. O: Apart from their solid Imperial Pumpkin Ale, I haven’t been impressed by Weyerbacher’s offerings - this being no exception. I hate how most middle-of-the-road IPAs (like this) are all about generic bitterness instead of complex hop/malt interplay. Meh.

Old rating. Darker orange pour. Very resinous and piney. Some citrus. Heavier and maltier…almost DIPA arena. Just fine.

rondphoto (2553) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAR 19, 2015
bottle @ Jungle Jims / Eastgate OH --- Hazy dark amber, Solid white head, bands of lace. Taste is clean malt and day-old biscuit that is slugged by strong citrus hops in the finish. Just a little malt sneaks through at the end, keeping things balanced. A basic IPA, but well-done.

Pours a cloudy coppery yellow. Hops, pine on the nose. Hoppy bitterness balanced by the citrus. Crisp, tart mouthfeel. Bitter taste at the back of the tongue. Nearly a double IPA.

"...helps animal rescue organizations." On label. I object! I support hundreds of "human rescue" organizations...which allow me to drink fine beer with a feeling of accomplishment. This is a very average IPA which wants to siphon my money to THEIR, not mine, cause!

CelticBrew (907) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Pours from 12 oz bottle a nice copper color with a small white head. Aroma of crystal and caramel malt, hops, citrus, pine, and spruce. Flavour of earthy hops, biscuity malts, floral and bitter rindy citrusy (lemon peel) hops with very light pine. No wow factor here.

Good IPA. Cloudy, amber; with medium-sized head. Aroma of a grapefruit with some caramel and pine. Almost the same in taste. Decent hoppy bitterness in aftertaste. Very drinkable .
