COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Exploding with hop flavor and aroma, this citrus/piney/floral ale has enough of a malt backbone to stand up to the intense bitterness.

mtlasley (39) - Anna, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2012
finger head showed quickly and had some decent staying power. The soapy thickness of the head makes for some decent lacing. Zesty grapefruit stands up front followed by pine, lemon and orange. The hops are extremely aromatic and they overpower the sweet, caramel smelling malty backbone. Smooth, sweet hoppy bitters are up front in the mouth and evoke tastes of grapefruit and pine being most prominent. The malty caramel background here is light but contributes well to the sweetness here. Very drinkable for the hop lover. Thick on the front but some middle of the road carbonation makes the end crisp and refreshing. Keeps bringing me back for more. Very tasty overall. Well rounded and refreshing. Just a slightly above average IPA and something I could enjoy a few of and a summer evening.

hotstuff (5051) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 8, 2017
Rated on 12-24-2016. This bottled beers apperance includes a medium sized frothy offf-white head that is mostly lasting, hazy medium yellow body, fizzy, lively, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is very nice...citrus hops, pine hops, fruity, bitter hops, floral, and caramel malt. The flavor is moderate-heavy bitter, citrus hops, pine hops, fruity. caramel malt, and a dry finish. The mouthfeel is lively carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. A very nice drinking beer with a moderate bitter aftertaste and a very good overall taste to it. It is easy drinking and a beer that I would partake in again.

This beer is amazing! I got so many different delicious hoppy flavors from this one, mostly citrus and fruitiness, but also hints of pine a little herbal flavor.

alexsdad06 (9827) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Bottle from notes. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale toasted malts, citrus, floral and herbal tea hop character, smells very nice, moderate bitterness, pretty solid beer, flavor falls short of the nose.

gripweed57 (1506) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 4, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy yellow golden color. Moderate rocky white head is firm and dense. Intense piney hop nose, redolent of bitter grapefruit. Upfront, flavor is sweet malt and citrusy hops. Starts out subtle, but the hoppiness becomes more intense in the midtaste. Complex and spicy with tropical fruit notes. Well hidden is the 7.2% ABV. Nicely crafted and a stellar example of American lupinicity.

jefcon (1736) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2016
Standard pour, but tons of bitterness, citrus and pine from this terrific IPA. Sticky and tart, with a spicy aroma that belies the massive hop content on the palate.

MacNJ (73) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 25, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2016 The appearance is one weakness with a watery head and a cloudy, unfiltered pour. However, the nose is fully hopped, and the taste matches its sniff. Very hoppy. Solid IPA. Cheers!
