Big beefy IPA. Really full bodied - lots of caramel, bread and a bit of honey with a solid citrus based bitter finish. Very meaty and muscular. Well balanced between the bitter sweet. Thanks to Beerkat for this one!

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2014 (Can). Big fruity and floral hops scent. Mmmmm! Abundant hops flavor, very fruity and with nice citrus notes. Good bitterness in the aftertaste. Really good! Can be a bit "hard" to drink as it is, but works very well with food.

rubbishystuff (2422) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 4, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 Really this is quite nice. Fresh hop flavors balanced quite nicely with maltiness. The flavor of the hops presents while drinking but politely subsides after youre done and doesnt coat the palate with a hoppy residue. Malt is not too sweet but not to dry neither. Serving: Bottle

12oz bottle from my pals in the Arizona Metro. Bang! This beer is fantastic! Nice thick hazy pour with some nice head dare. The hops just explodes into some very tasty goodness. Thankfully the palete lasts and lasts.

On tap at Peppinos in Grand Rapids. Pours orange with an off-white head. Aroma is centennial hops (I did not catch that the first 10 times I had this beer) - pine, fresh fruit, citrus in an understated way. Taste is nice citrus, pine with some caramel to the body. Finishes medium length with some bitterness.

Draft. This certainly is the ipa to be a benchmark to. Big floral and citrus aroma. Even bigger bright citrus taste. Truly world class for an ipa.
