Notes/Commercial Description:
Rare are moments of truth, when you've struck the last match, belting out tunes with your friends, staring deep into the campfire-times when you feel infinite. Our truth is found in the scintillating brilliance of hops. Brewed with a nod to the pacific, hops sizzle with tropical fruit aroma, grapefruit & mango notes and a dry finish.

Wow. I've been around - as far as IPA's are concerned - and this one will remain in my memory. The first word that comes to mind is RAW. As in untamed, bold, brash - even a bit presumptuous.

Smooth at first, strong alcohol kick, bitter aftertaste that teeters on the edge of pleasant and offensive. Think of this as Ballast Point's Sculpin - but the troublemaker cousin that had some run-ins with the cops and just finished the sleeve on his left arm.

Well worth picking up if you have the chance. Unrefined. Unapologetic. And a heck of an experience.

Did I mention the BEAUTIFUL amber coloring and the perfect balance of carbonation? - just go pick it up.

This is a strong hoppy IPA. It is as strong and aroma filled as ANY beer in the Cincinnati area. Unfortunately I have only had it out of the can ( why no bottles? ) It is also available on tap or in growlers at the brewery. As IPA's go, this one is right in line with the best in the style....you can walk into the room and know someone has opened a Truth. Strong taste and clean mouthful on first drink and a strong and bitter linger afterword....but still pleasant. I am not an IPA person unless I am just having a beer. ..the strong flavor overtakes food for me so I usually drink lighter when having dinner. This is a GREAT IPA though and when I am just having a beer or two, this is the one to enjoy!
