Bitter and bold. This single hop american style IPA features 100 percent Columbus Hops for an intense citrus, floral and spicy aroma and flavor. Five different malts form the rich backbone that balances the hops 77 IBUs. The resinous mouthfeel is followed by a clean, dry hopped finish that refreshes and satisfies. Additional Information: Delve into this beer and you are going to see the complexities that this highly hopped beer has to offer. Grapefruit, orange, lemon, and flower essences are just a few flavors/aromas you are sure to find.

As far as IPAs go this is not the best. It seems to be a beer for the masses or maybe an entry level beer for people trying IPAs for the first time. It lacks some of the floral qualities and bitterness that a well developed IPA contains. If ever there was a warm weather IPA this would qualify.

[Tap @ Brewery] Clear orange appearance, fruity orange on the nose. Mild tropic citrus palate, plenty of dryness and bitterness in the finish but not overwhelming.

Draft. Light amber pour with a slight haze, white head. Pine, grass, bitter hops, "dank", and light malt notes. A very hoppy, resinous IPA, which I like.

A: The pour is a vibrant orange color with a big head that is just slightly off-white. S: An incredibly dank hop aroma to this beer. Big citrus and pine notes with a slight herbal quality to it. A mild malt sweetness consisting primarily of bread. T: The flavor is somewhat sweet and does not have quite as big of a hop punch as the nose. Some citrus and fruit hop notes and a solid pine character which gives the beer a strong bitterness. M: Medium in body body and carbonation. O: Good but not great, unfortunately. With some fine tuning, though, I think this one has potential.

Thanks to JoeTheYounger for this extra! Aroma:This smells really delicious. Theres grapefruit, sweet orange, apricots, peaches, and cotton candy sweetness. Appearance:Deep amber color with slowly rising bubbles. Thick white head with small bubbles, and excellent lacing. I think it may be a little dark for an IPA. Taste:There is a huge hop bitterness on the foretaste. After a few sips, and my taste buds adjust to the huge hop bite, I can begin to distinguish other flavors. I taste the fruity hops on the foretaste, with apricots, peaches, and oranges. The flavors get sweeter in the midtaste, and fade away gracefully in the aftertaste. There are some harsh hop flavors in the mid to aftertaste too, probably because this is a single-hop beer. Underlying everything is a sweet malty backbone. Palate:This beer has a medium-thick body, good carbonation, and some hop astringency. Overall:I really enjoyed this IPA, although I think it could be called a DIPA without too much work, as its darker, thicker, and hoppier than your average IPA.

On tap at the brewery. It pours orange with a disappearing off white head. The aroma is caramel, toffee, tropical hops with a touch of weed. The flavor is very bitter with tropical, grassy, weedy hops and a touch of toffeeish malt. The mouthfeel is a tad frothy with a strong bitter finish.

From a bottle poured a straw color with a good amount of head. Nice citrusy hoppy flavor with a lingering finish.
