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!

Did you expect anything less than perfection? This IPA is a medal winner at GABF with great reason. The color is spot on, the nose is entrancing, the taste is to die for and you can keep sipping on it for quite some time. Doesn’t get better than that! If only it were truly sessionable, but at 7.5% you’re going to have to show some restraint and keep to a few of these. This is THE benchmark beer for me!

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2012 Thus might be the best IPA I’ve ever had. Citrus/pine on the nose. Quite effervescent. Golden in color. Totally drinkable and delicious. Wow.

Pours a clear orange with a white, three-fingered head. Retention is very good with good lacing. This is what an American IPA should look like! Aroma dominated by grapefruit and pineapple, followed by resinous pine. Little malt sweetness to speak of, the nose is all about hops! Classic west coast IPA. Bitterness dominates the palate, pine resin up front, grapefruit rind right behind. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, Head Hunter finishes dry, with strong astringency. Overall, a supremely crafted IPA in the West Coast style! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

My current fave. I am a lover of very hoppy, bitter ales, and this definitely makes me happy.

Just a ridiculously tropical west coast ipa. Smells wonderful. Putting the big dogs to a test right here in Ohio! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Best combination of hops and malt ever. Can’t get over the citrusy hoppiness! I prefer the draft version for fuller flavor. Uncivilized and aggressive doesn’t begin to describe the palate delight. If you drink any other beers, do them first, this beer overwhelms other beers. WOW!

Nectar of the Gods. My current and possibly all-time favorite. Aroma is dank, delicious hops. Taste is sublime and cascading; more an experience than a flavor. Bitterness crests at the point of perfection and then backs away into a crisp finish that leaves you eagerly awaiting the next quaff.
