COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed as a medium India Pale Ale, this full-flavored moderately hopped beer has the strongest hop character of our ales. Made for hopheads and new beer aficionados. The grist composition is 94% Pale malt, with the remaining grain bill consisting of carastan malts. The finishing Mt. Hood hop addition in the whirlpool gives this beer a good hop character without becoming excessively bitter. The beer is fined instead of filtered so the hop character is not stripped away.

On tap in Wheeling, IL. Pretty reddish-brown color with a lacy head. Hop profile is Amarillo all the way, citrusy & a little bit grapefruity, with an acidic puckering, kind of reminded me of Alpha King in some ways. Relentless, bitter aftertaste that lingers on the palate like crazy. Barely any malt detectable. Kind of makes you want a glass of water. It’s not bad, give it a try. Who the hell is that guy in the logo? He looks like he has a swollen face. Maybe from bee stings.

On tap in Dallas, TX. Loaded with piney/grapefruity hop aroma. Tons of grapefruit taste, but no malt foundation to speak of. One dimensional. Still ... if you like grapefruity IPA’s, you might like this one.

On tap at CB & Potts. Doesn’t really taste like an IPA, not hoppy at all. For that reason, perhaps I should discount it completely. But the head stands up which is more than Sierra Nevada can say. Great lacing. Smooth, doesn’t give you the gross-mouth feeling of many wannabe IPAs.

Enjoyed on tap at the Ram on Tacoma waterfront. Beer is hazy amber. Strong citrus flavor from the hops. Not quite as big or as hoppy as I like my IPAs. Moderate to weak malt flavor (for the style). Hops are very present but do not overwhelm. Overall a very decent beer, but not my favorite.
