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!

illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 28, 2012
Bottle from miked. Pours amber with a dissipating white head. Bold floral hop aroma. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Toffee esque malt backbone, but with a huge grapefruit and pine bitterness. Long dry and hoppy finish. Great IPA.

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 Pinnochio’s in Media, PA. Cheers!

unclefrito62 (256) - 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.

andrewje41 (3644) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - FEB 24, 2017
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.

stevoj (4836) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 18, 2017
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 (581) - 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 (951) - 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.
