COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This IPA pushes the boundaries (BJCP American IPA top-7.5% ABV/70 IBU) and delivers what you would expect. This aggressively hoped IPA awakens the senses with aromas of citrus, fruit, and pine but will bombard your taste buds (with hops, a subtle malt sweetness and notes of caramel) that will put a smile on your face. Available for a limited time on draft.

Formerly known as Hop Prop IPA.

Bottle from Ron . THanks Ron. Pretty standard, seems on the English side with the caramel. Not super dry or super hoppy tasting perhaps as it is headed towards IIPA category. Decent.

Can in the dining room
Pours a very hazy bright orange color with a small but well retained head & good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is grapefruit & orange zest with a bit of pine and some caramelly malt.

The flavor is lightly bitter and big on fruity hops. ItS got a pretty serious sweetness & lots of honey and caramel flavor.

Not bad

tmoreau (4154) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2016
On tap at the brewery and served as part of a six flight platter, showing a clear, medium gold color, with a frothy layer of soft white foam, and doily-like lacing. The nose was some bready/crusty malt, lively citrus, a touch of resin, and a bit of fruit preserves sweetness. Medium bodied, with good carbonation, moderate citrus & rind bitterness, and a presentably dry finish. A decent style offering.

Bartzilla (622) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 14, 2016
Had this in cans and its great. I didnt pour it into a glass, but I gave it a 5 on appearance because the label is nicely done. I find this to be a well rounded IPA with many citrus notes and a perfect malt back end. I will drink this again.

ACHops (1548) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 13, 2016
On tap @ Target Field. Pours murky medium orange with thin off-white head. Aroma is light citrusy hops, mild caramel malt. Taste is likewise - hops are not huge for the style, but with plenty of grapefruit pith and orange flavor. Solid body, not overly sweet, but lacking much notable flavor. Better than average for an upper Midwest IPA.

Bottle. Hazy deep golden color, thick white head with good retention and solid lacing. Nice aroma of pineapple and tropical fruit. Taste is bittersweet citrus and melon. Tasty.
