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!

brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - MAR 9, 2013
UPDATED: APR 7, 2013 Pours a classic sunset orange color with a finger length white head that goes down slowly and leaves a thick lacing. Pretty good carbonation coming off the glass. Smells like an ipa should. Lots of resinous pine, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, maybe some papaya. Tiny bit of a bready malt presence. Pretty dry. Taste starts with the resinous pine, grapefruit, and orange. Then there is a decent malt presence that brings some carmel and breadiness to balance it a little. Very resinous, dry finish with more pine, grapefruit, some pineapple, papaya, along with some sweetness to cut the hops. Almost like a bubblegum flavor. The hops get more abrasive as it goes down. Pretty hefty body for a single ipa. Creamy and surprisingly clean mouthfeel for such a hoppy beer due to the lively carbonation. Extremely well done ipa that lives up to the hype in my opinion..

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 Pinnochio’s in Media, PA. Cheers!

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. I’d love to be able to throw a pint of this down regularly. Awesome.

Draft at the Industry. Clear body, medium golden, soft fluffy head. . Pretty gentle, but wonderful malt profile. Fairly smooth throughout, despite its claim of being aggressive. Pretty lavorful, nice feel.

scotchzombie (577) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 14, 2017
Pours clear golden amber with a fat and foamy off white head that has staying power. Aroma is fruity citrus hop with just a touch of fresh pine. Taste is balls to the wall citrus from sweeter pineapple to lasting bitter grapefruit. Piney bitter hop close. This is a great IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tognetta (914) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - JAN 31, 2017
Dourada translúcida, espuma amarelada de ótima formação e boa persistência. Aroma mais forte de frutas amarelas maduras, abacaxi, lúpulo cavalar, resinosa. Amargor médio/intenso, médio dulçor. Corpo e carbonatação médios. Final mantém as impressões do aroma com frutas maduras e resina que gruda na língua. Deliciosa.

Panzuriel (2125) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2017
Appearance: Hazy deep honey amber. Thin head of tiny white bubbles. Nose: Sweet citrus, grapefruit and a touch of pine hops with medium roasted malt. Taste: A juicy blend of citrus and tropical fruit hops over a sweeter candy malt. Body: Light side of medium and lively. Parting thoughts: A very nice tropical hop showcase IPA.

Smell of hop, sweet floral, grapefruit. Drink from bottle, can’t see color. Well balanced ipa with right bitterness, smooth. Hopilicious. Right texture. Very good Ohio IPA. Will drink again.

Listigovers (1086) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2016
Orange copper colour with a fast disappearing off white head. Smells very resinous and floral. Very piney IPA, tons of hop flavour and medium bitterness, very punchy, medium bodied and oily. Hop flavour for miles, this is a VERY good IPA!
