COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Uncivilized and aggressive this west coast styled IPA packs wicked hop flavors and aroma. Savage amounts of Simcoe, Columbus, and Cascade hops define this brews signature pine and citrus notes. Try with our smoked wings in the Killer sauce and run the risk of a shrunken head!

Bottle from my neighbor Bob - thanks! Probably the best IPA Iíve had in a long time and certainly worthy of the praise afforded from other sources. The creamy finish goes down well and nicely balances the citrus aftertaste. No hop bite here.

Pours a pale copper color with a white foam head. Aroma is bright and vivid citrus, pine, and floral hops and resin. Flavor is juicy citrus, resin, and pine. High bitterness. Has some carbonation and a medium body. Quite good.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2017 Keg 2017-06-09. Pours an orange-yellow with little white head. Beautiful citrus favor; bursts of grapefruit with lime and orange not far behind. Slight malt that perfectly compliments the intense, hoppy profile of this fantastic IPA. Would order again, and again.. and again.... aaand again. Refreshing, diverse, genius.

Draft in the Philly Airport. Fruity and juicy nose, with apricot, orange, cream, spearmint, resin, pine. Bitter, fresh, juicy finish. About as good as an IPA gets these days.

Growler from Trenton Road Takeout in Falsington, PA. Bright Amber gold topped by a small frothy beige head. Fragrant citrus hop nose explodes on the pour. Wonderful buttery, toasted malt flavor upfront. Then comes the rush of citrus and pine hops. Bitter, yet not over done. Complex and spicy with notes of mango, pineapple and tangerine. Finish becomes peppery with pine and grapefruit notes. Just a splendid example of a West Coast style IPA. Worth seeking out.

Poured into a pint glass from a growler. Hoppy nose, white head, light brown/golden hue, and cobweb lacing. Incredible hop taste that is both citrus and dank, earthy herb. One of the best; in my upper tier with Bells Two-Hearted and Stone IPA. A good deal at Pinnochioís in Media, PA. Cheers!

unclefrito62 (269) - Stow, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2017
Draft at Winking Lizard Macedonia. Not much aroma Deep golden straw in color. Taste the hops not over whelming. Carbonated on the palate and above average for the style.

12 oz bottle poured, sent over by Pruf. Thanks! Always fun to try a top 50 IPA. A mostly clear golden pour. Aromatic hop quality from quite a distance. Flavor is a bitter piney constant, flavorful, and very tasty. Thicker body to this. Cool late, and the flavor turns a little more to the citrus side as it lingers. A juicy side to it as well. A solid IPA here for sure. Iíd love to be able to throw a pint of this down regularly. Awesome.
