Finally an American-style IPA from us... This beautiful red-orange ale has a full malty body balanced by a fruity apricot/grapefruit nose. Mounds of dank Summit hops in the whirlpool and dry-hop additions provide a deliciously quenching finish to this East meets West-coast ale.

On tap at the brewery. Sweet and citrus, without being too malty or cloying, very delicious, aromatic dry-hopped, not bitter.

Bottle 12 oz @ Labadee, Haiti. Hazy red-orange beer with a large, off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel and citrus with notes of pine needles. Sweet and bitter taste with notes of grapefruit and pine needles. Good texture and a good bitter and hoppy finish

12oz bottle from Armanettis. Pours a cloudy, dull orange colored body with a thin, creamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a solid lacing throughout. Aroma is pine grapefruits and floral apricots with a nice sweetness to the hops. A good amount of medium sweet caramels backing the hops with a touch of toastiness and crystal sweetness. Flavor is solid. Dank pine grapefruits and slightly sweetened floral apricots to offset the heavy pines. Some orange in the middle with a medium sweet caramel, light toast, and touch of crystal that balances well. Finishes dry and highly bitter, but not abrasively so. Lengthy, aggressively hopped aftertaste with some citruses coming out. Medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid IPA. Lots of dank, piney grapefruits, but a nice sweetness to hops as well. Solid malt backing keeps things balanced. Nothing crazy special, but enjoyable.

Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Hazy amber, small head. Aroma of lychee and grapefruit. Medium bodied with clean mouthfeel. Crystal hidden in a relatively thick blanket of citric hops. Salty bitter finoish.

Purchased at Armanettis in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on spring forward Sunday while making dinner, one of those great unexpected early March 60 degree days. Appearance is a cloudy, dark gold/ruby with a rich white head that laces to the glass. Aroma is nice and hoppy, equal parts citrus and pine hops, smells dry hopped for sure. Taste is pretty good, not really much malt thrown in, hops dominate but its not crazy bitter, goes down slightly smooth with mostly citrus notes, but its not like Im drinking hop residue. Im pretty happy to have tried this, wasnt happy with my last Cisco brew and think this ones the bees knees.

Herbaceous aroma, predominately malty taste with a short bitter finish. Not bad

Beautiful hazy red pour with a tight creamy tan head. Color has a glow to it. Juicy fruity nose. Sweet tropical fruit and a touch of pine. Huge flavor right up front. Candy sweetness, covered at all times by a firm hop bitterness and finishing dry. The two play nicely together, keeping the beer balanced, despite an aggressive hop bitterness. Lots of crystal, but not in the right way. Hop flavor is not direct. Pine resin and big grapefruit are absolutely there, but they are largely married to the malt. They blend into the malt sweetness bringing out cherry and strawberry notes. Hints of black pepper o the finish. This actually reminds me a bit of an IPA version of Bigfoot. Touches on my memory of what Hop Devil perhaps once was. Definitely doing something different than the quintessential west coast IPA, but absolutely succeeds at finding a new niche in the style. Epically drinkable, but seriously robust. One of my favorite go-to local beers.
