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.

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.

Poured from a can into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter. The beer is hazy and light amber in color and sports an impressive 2 fingers of coarse white foam. Good retention and nice clumpy lacing. Very hop-forward nose (obviously).

Medium-light body and dry flavor through and through. Very sharply bitter and a bit out of balance, but still very tasty. I get some citrus notes, but also some herbal, woody, grassy notes as well. Cedary, quinine-like bitterness could use a bit more malt to balance it out and improve the feel.

A good local brew that I'm glad I have access to, but not what I would consider top-shelf. Because I can get it so fresh, I'm sure I'll buy it again and my appreciation will likely improve over time.
