COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full-flavored hop assault delightfully lacking in balance. A combination of Centennial, Cascade, Simcoe and Columbus hops are used to produce pungent aromas of grapefruit, pine and citrus.

ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Reviewed 1/15/2013. 12 oz bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass. A: Pours a golden amber color. The head is a one finger white color with poor retention. S: This seems to take the herbal/piny route as far as hop profiles go. There is a hint of grapefruit peel as well, but this is mostly pine. Underlying that even further are some biscuity malts and some Simcoe cattiness. The aroma isnt quite my cup of tea, but its alright. T: Again with the piny hop profile to start. The hops come across as being generically bitter with no real hop flavors aside from a vague grapefruit finish. Only truly distinctive flavor note I can pick up is green tea in the midtaste. The finish gradually becomes a bit like - dare I say - Windex after some sips. Its not particularly good, but its mild enough where I dont really sweat drinking this too much. M: I enjoy the crisp dryness of the body, but the texture squeezes far too much hop harshness out of the flavors it seems. The lingering aftertaste is very resinous and oily. O: Apart from their solid Imperial Pumpkin Ale, I havent been impressed by Weyerbachers offerings - this being no exception. I hate how most middle-of-the-road IPAs (like this) are all about generic bitterness instead of complex hop/malt interplay. Meh.

Sampled from bottle at the special Weyerbacher tasting in Getrnke Oase. Murky Amber, low offwhite lace. Very herbal tea like nose. Lightbodied, light flat tinny, metallic, dry herb retronasal. Seemed a bit off.

SinH4 (4046) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - NOV 23, 2016
Bottle. Hazy golden color with white head. Aroma is pure hop pellets, citrusy, spicy-earthy. Taste is juicy orange, a bit earthy, toasted malts, bittersweetish slightly warming finish. Oily mouthfeel. Not bad, but the pure hop pellet aroma is not for me.

johnnnniee (4029) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 9, 2016
Bottle from Berts Slightly hazy light golden color with a decent sized bubbly white head. Earthy pine and resin with a sweet bready maltiness to back it up. Not quite as dry as Id like but its a decent beer.

Bottle share. Pours hazy orange, minimal head, minimal lacing. Big piney nose with a bit of tropical fruit, grapefruit. Slightly sweet, with caramel notes and something almost like anise near the end.

OrthoDoc (189) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Funky aroma and maybe even funkier taste. This is an odd IPA. Very earthy, very odd bitterness, and absolutely no malt to balance it out. Have tried other beers from these folks and their style is just not for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A pint on tap at Tiger Mart (SC). The hazy orange-amber body is topped by a good head that has decent retention and leaves streaky lacing on the glass. Over ripe tropical fruit notes from the hops dominate the aroma. The taste follows but has little in the way of unattractive aspects the "over ripe" description implies. Feel - medium body and near medium carbonation. Overall - a good but not great mix of hops thats sure to appeal to some more than it did to me.

BrownALEx (451) - Portland, Michigan, USA - JUN 8, 2016
12 oz pour, aroma is splendid, citrus hops with a little bit of bread. Appearance is not so splendid, it is over run with floaties. An abundance of floaties, almost to the point that you wonder if this will make you suck. Taste is lacking in a few key categories, a little pungent, a little flat. Palate is medium bodied with harsh carbonation. Overall, not a great ipa, would get it again if were the only option.
