COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

From a bottle. Pours hazy copper with a fizzy off white head. Tastes nutty, like orange, malty, and tangy hops. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like orange, caramel, and smooth nutty hops.

TBone (18542) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2014
Can at SBWF2014. Hazy yellow color, small white head. Grassy, sticky even harsh nose. Medium-bodied. Flowery hoppy, a bit sweetish flavor. Taste is better than the nose.

The aroma is okay. Definitely some citrus and floral hops, possibly a whiff of bready malt? Taste is nothing special. Mostly just hops that are not very well balanced. Nothing amazing

My first thought was "it’s like a razor blade to the tongue". Very sharp, but refreshing at the same time. A new twist on IPAs.

Ernest (7886) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is dark amber. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot), with notes of diacetyl, sour fruit (kumquat, sour apple, tomato, etc.), lightly to moderately yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Off-smelling, dirty, and very sour. Undrinkable. Cisco continues to have problems with infections, obviously. Bummer.

jsmerig (1718) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Pours a clear amber brown with a foamy off white head. Aroma of caramel and grape. Taste is lightly sweet start to finish with a nice midpoint of hop bitterness that finishes with candied citrus notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

drpimento (3814) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Quite nice beer bordering on superb. Poured with a thick sudsy cream-colored head, some lace and a clear medium dark amber color. Aroma is malt, pine resin and a hint of weed. flavor is fairly dry but other than that everything else is well balanced which makes it easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dwyerpg (6493) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 20, 2014
I thought this smelled excellent. Lots of piney hops with a weird old smell that I like. Unfortunately, the old smell also permeated into the flavor, as it just seemed a bit flat and alcohol-present. Bummer.
