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.

poured 12oz can into snifter. Canned 12/18/14

A - Hazy dark orange with a 2.5 finger foamy white head. Thick collar and partial cap with a heavy amount of webbed lacing.

S - Big amount of citrus, floral hops and pine. Some caramel sweet malt mixed in.

T - Hops are dominant with citrus (orange and grapefruit), floral aromas, and piney resinous notes. Nice amount of sweet malts really balance everything out. Finish is mostly bitter pine hops.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Oily with some dryness on the palate.

O - Pretty solid IPA from Cinci, OH.

Can from 12/04/14. Light copper in color with a beautiful head. Huge hop burst in the nose. Bold citrus aroma. Medium mouthfeel with hops taking the forefront. Light biscuity notes with pine, grapefruit and mango. This is Southwest Ohio's version of a west coast IPA and it is done well. Leaves the palate wanting another sip. Clean yeast profile with piney resin left on the tongue. Beautifully done. 7.2% goes over well but sneaks up on you.

Simply the best IPA I have ever tasted. Smooth yet bitter. Nice floral grapefruit scent with a light citrus finish and plenty of hoppiness.

Aroma is resiny, tropical fruity, dank, and piney. Mango, body odor, and a touch of onion are evident.

Flavor is pretty bitter, but the tropical fruit sweetness counters. The finish is a bit biting and carbonic.

The fruity flavoring hops pale in comparison to the bittering hops. Not my style of ipa.
