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.

Poured into a Haw River Farmhouse Ales teku glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 3/4 inch off-white head that retains very well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Resilient sheet of lacing clings to the glass.

S- Piney, somewhat citrusy hop aroma that's backed by a good amount of cereal grain malt sweetness. Slightly musty.

T- Very balanced flavor of juicy hops and sweet malt. It's almost so balanced, I would think it's more of a straight pale ale than IPA. The bitterness starts to really creep in and let itself be known as multiple sips are taken. The alcohol is very well-hidden and there's a hint of soily yeast in the aftertaste.

M- Somewhat zesty with a trailing hop bite. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- Really good stuff. Will look out for more offerings from these guys in the future when available. Supremely drinkable given the ABV. I would almost put it up there with the ranks of Jai Alai, Flower Power and Head Hunter. Just a very well-made IPA that teeters between single and double.

Of all the beers my brewing buddy Bob brought back from his trip to Ohio, this was my favorite. BIG fruit hop nose! BIG flavor palette including pineapple and mango. A hint of honey, and even a little wheat, nice. Excellent bitterness to offset all the fruit. Refreshing, well crafted, and above all original.
