COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This one is for the hopheads. Classic West Coast IPA brewed with six varieties of hops providing flavors of tangerine, mango and a hint of lemon citrus. Crystal and Munich malts provide balance for the perfect pint. Dry-hopped in the serving tank with Centennial hops. To the victor go the spoils… get your spoils today.

This was my second beer on my virgin trip to the Wrecking Bar. Unfortunately, once again, I thought the beer was just alright. I don’t know whether it is logically inconsistent to call the hops obtrusively overpowering and the flavor bland in the same sentence, but I appear to have done it. Poured darker than expected. I could see how some could enjoy this flavor, but it was just a bit anodyne for my palate. Will probably give a second look in 3-6 months. Draft - Wrecking Bar Brew Pub - Atlanta, GA

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2013
On tap at brewpub. Pours clear copperish amber with white head. Aromas bright citrus, some tropical fruit, caramel, and fresh hops. Flavors of grapefruit, mango, caramel, and good dose of bitterness. Something between the hop bitterness and malt profile don’t really jive but was still a decent IPA overall.

theisti (3175) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Half pint pour at the brew pub in Atlanta, Georgia. The pour is a hazed orange brown copper with a 1/2 inch off white head. Nice thick lacing left on the glass. The aroma is a bright citrus resin hops, along with a touch malt for balance. The taste is the hops up front, fresh and round citrus, the grassy resin bite and them moves towards the malt grain, and shows a decent amount of crystal malt as well. Finishes has a nice dry toast character. The palate is medium bodied, dry bitter finish, smooth mouth feel. Nice fresh IPA.

bytemesis (2931) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Tap. Pours cloudy deep reddish amber with a small off-white head that leaves almost zero lacing. Aroma is caramel, toffee, citrus, pine. Flavor is the same, quite malty with medium sweetness and a light bitterness growing to medium in the far finish. Much more malt complexity than normal for an IPA. Medium plus body, creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation.

rbrazell (1572) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Draft at brew pub. Deep amber pour with a white head. Lots of tropical fruits, mango, peaches, pineapples with balancing sweet malts. More thick maltiness in the flavor with more tropical hops and a long lasting resiny bitterness. Solid IPA.
