RATINGS: 376   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.29/5   EST. CALORIES: 177   ABV: 5.9%
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.

   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 9/20
viverlee (18) - - FEB 19, 2013

STYLE: American IPA

ABV: 5.9%

LOOK: Sudsy copper and gelatinous. Not more than a bubble or two of carbonation and no head to speak of.

NOSE: An English IPA vibe. Much less American than expected. Some floral, piney hops are there, mostly overshadowed by leather and pavement if that makes sense.

MOUTH: Harsh. Astringent. And a too-long finish for what it is. Pulling myself together petals, soap bar, one-way road, grapefruit rind.

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 (4054) - 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.

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.
