COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hopheads crusade on a heroic quest for the holy grail of India Pale Ales. The subconscious composes paradisiacal scenes of malty waves crashing on a ripe lupulin landscape cascading hop flavors and aromas in profuse abundance. With humble confidence we offer this brew as fantasy made reality. Balanced in every detail and gushing resinous, exceptional citrus flavors and aromas that collaborate with soft bready notes surrendered from premium English golden malted barley, this beer is a tropical dreamscape. Epic.

12 oz. bottle. Deep orange body. Smells of bready malts, a little fruitiness, some citrus, and floral hops. Tastes again of very bready malts. Kinda sweet. Spicy hops with pine resin in the back end. Medium body. Definitely a malty IPA. Im used to citrus bombs at this point. This has a nice English malty flavor and an old-school balanced hop profile.

This is a different one. Aroma has some spice to it...coriander? Taste is similar - more herb and spice than I prefer. Not my ideal IPA. Some hazy fruit juice somewhere in there, but not dank or tropical like others have said.

Love this beer! Packaging is great, a nice easy drinker. Not too bitter or hoppy. Solid hazy color. Citrusy aromas. Well balanced. Frequently grabbing 6 packs of this, and glad its finally on draught in the market!

Keg @ GTMW 16. Deep gold pour with a small head. Nose is assertively bright and fairly dank. Tropical undergrowth. Citrus fruit meat. Grapefruit smoothie. Flavor is moderately bitter. More bright, sweet fruity. Cracker and sweet grain ballast. Medium body, a touch oily. Pillowy carb. Good.

Pours a hazy golden color with speckles of sediment throughout. Head is fluffy and white. Aroma is juicy citrus, pine, and a good balance of sweetness and bitterness. Taste is bright tropical fruit (pineapple/citrus) with a balance of earth and yeast. Slightly dry on the finish. Great IPA.

Got in a trade with The-Adjunct-Hippie. 12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, biscuit, light honey/toast, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, biscuit, light honey/toast, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/spicy/citrus peel bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange peel, pepper, pine, biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/grainy/sticky, and lightly resinous balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.3%. Overall this is a great IPA! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, easy, and pretty refreshing to drink. A really well balanced IPA that has great hop vibrancy, without being too bitter or drying. A very enjoyable offering.

pours a hazy orange with a smallish off white head. Strong citrus aroma. Nice oily resinous feel on the lips. Bright grapefruit/orange citrus taste. The hop bitter fades in and lingers pleasantly. A very good IPA. This hophead gives it 2 thumbs up!

Interesting? Unique? Or old, stale? Not sure. #1 put clear bottled on dates on your beers. If you care about your beer you will. Aroma lackluster....taste dies and gives you little...moderate bitterness. Long bad aftertaste. I don't like this bit who knows what the history if this bottle is. Their pale gave me hope but this was a let down. Pass if not improved ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
