The destroyer, the creator, the benefactor. Shiva is all these things. We set out to create an IPA that anyone can enjoy, and we think we succeeded. As the flagship beer in our lineup, weve yet to encounter a soul who believes contrary. A crisp, citrusy Indian Pale Ale with a light color, Shiva will destroy all your preconceptions of an IPA. A transcendentally simple malt bill accents a generous helping of Columbus hops, lending an intense floral aroma with hints of grapefruit and a pleasant bittering quality. Your palette will be lifted to higher planes of consciousness with a bittersweet finish.

Malty_MacHops (688) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Fruity and bready notes in the nose. Amber with a hint of orange and a foamy cream head. Bitter with fruit notes and good balance. Medium bodied and smooth in the mouth with a grapefruit bitter finish.

Really not where youd want to be for an ipa these days. Aroma is faint. Taste is sort of a strange bitterness... I like the art work!

ACHops (1563) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 18, 2016
On tap @ 12 Bones. Pours hazy dark golden amber with thin creamy off-white head. Aroma is sweet nutty earthy fresh caramel malt, light crisp hops. Taste is clean fresh malt, hops are fresh and lightly punchy. Not bad, but way more malt forward than typical for an IPA.

Lots of citrus peel and some pepper. Pours orange with ok head. Bitter finish. Tap at Papas and Beer. Tempers the salsa spice a little.

Meh...a little substandard for a fresh ipa. Prefered every other hoppy brew they made to this. Lightly citrus floral and bitter, but boring.

JStax (6129) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Draft sample. The beer is a clear amber with a white head of foam. The aroma has some floral notes and some spice. Medium bitterness in the taste that finishes dry. Medium body and medium carbonation.

Can from Chris on his Carolina trip. Thanks! Pours copper with thinish off white head. Nose is hoppy with pine and citrus; grapefruit in the taste with that gf edge. All in all a decent if not outstanding brew.

Emeister84 (2413) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Malty aromas, orangey, herbal. Clear orange with a mostly lasting white head. Malts dominate, hops are round and not too bitter. Medium bodied.

radio_nowhere (1472) - Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Draft at Papas and Beer in Asheville, NC served in a pint glass; deep orangy-copper color with off-white head. Aroma notes of heavy citrus/grapefruity hops with some malt sweetness backing. Taste adds more rounded citrus zest notes and earthy grass. Medium-light body, moderate-low carbonation, dry with lingering citrus finish. Kind of a one dimensional grapefruit hop bomb but sometimes thats nice.
