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!

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 28, 2012
12oz bottle via trade on BA. pours a gorgeous, clear, copper tinted gold capped by a dense, rocky, white head that leaves thick sheets of lace. aroma is amazing with huge, herbal, dank, resinous hops backed by heavy grapefruit, orange zest, apricots, and canned pineapple with hints of sweet caramel malts and honeysuckle as it opens up. flavor is outstanding as well with a big punch of bitter, resinous, piney hops up front that are balanced by orange peel, lemons, pink grapefruit, and prickly hints of peach, pear skins, and white grapes. palate is medium bodied with perfect carbonation and a dry, bitter, fruity hop finish. overall, an outstanding ipa that i wish i could get on a daily basis.

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.

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 (825) - 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 (2083) - 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.

Listigovers (1065) - 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!

poured from portland brewpub’s draft. balanced aromas and flavors of citrus, pine, and just great depth. just enough resinous character to make it interesting. just enough bite to know it’s an IPA. drinks well and easy to ask for another.

From 12 oz bottle. Served in curved pint glass. Clear golden color with a thin white head. Very little lacing. A good solid pine like aroma. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Solid notes of pine and citrus. Light to medium bodied beer. Average carbonation. Over all a very tasty and enjoyable IPA. Beer is well balanced between sweet and bitter.
