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!

Pours a dark gold with a huge fluffy white head. Nice lacing. Sweet malt, orange peel, grapefruit, and tropical fruit aromas. Similar flavors with a strong resinous bitterness at the beginning that fades towards a more fruity citrus flavor. The finish is fairly dry leaving just a slight hoppy bitterness on the back of the tongue. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and moderate to high level of carbonation. This is a very good IPA.

Bottle into a snifter showing well filtered pale amber with half a finger of quickly dissipating clean white foam. The nose shows pronounced mandarin oranges with light pine around the edges. The palate is well carbonated and medium bodied. Moderately intense flavors of blood orange with very light pine resin around the edges. Finish is strong sharp pine IPA finish. Not bad but bitterness is a bit strong.

I’m not specifically a fan of west coast style iPas but this beer is so smooth it more than makes up for any conflicts in preference. Very enjoyable summer beer.

clear, amber color; beautiful citrus hop aroma; fantastic citrusy hop flavor with some pine notes; an assertive West Coast IPA; fairly light malt background lets the hops shine; outstanding

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.

Itzjerm (3124) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - MAY 4, 2017
This IPA is spot on. Nose is clear American hops. Taste is sweet and hoppy hop candy with minimal bitterness. Perect body. Really an excellent. IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
