Pours a deep golden color. Has a huge aroma of citrus piny hops. Has a big flavor of citrus with an almost resin pony taste. A nice touch of malt to balance and a pleasant hoppy aftertaste. Great beer

Pours hazy amber-orange with a moderate white head that retreated fairly quickly but left nice tracks. Aromas of citrus, grapefruit, orange. Taste is cleanly bitter, with more citrus and some resin, slightly dank. Little malt but medium-bodied with a great feel. Clean dry finish with a bitter ring. Love this IPA.

Enjoyed on tap and in bottles several times during a week long trip to the Pittsburgh area.

Bold, flavorful and super tasty IPA. Blasting with hoppy goodness. World class and so worth seeking out. In a world of hundreds of quality IPAs, this one is able to stand out and be considered one of the best ...go get some - wish I had brought more home with me

look and smell are nothing special

A flavorful brew for sure. To me this packs more punch than some double IPAs. More bitter than most but not in a bad way. Sweetness is a bit above average. Also get some booziness from this one. Not super fruity but if I had to pick a I would say grapefruit is most noticeable. Overall, I think that their description of the beer being "uncivilized"is accurate in its own right.

Poured into a pint glass from a 12-oz brown bottle with a bottled-on date of 15 days ago. Hit with aggressive hop aromas immediately upon pouring. Taste is big, piney hops. There is some citrus flavor, but it wasn't as apparent for me as others had said. The aftertaste is extremely bitter, almost to a fault. All in all though, this is a very well done IPA.

The 4 pack I got was a Feb BOD so I'm sure that it had something to do with it.

Received this in a trade this weekend. However, it is being poured at about a month and a half after the bottled date. There doesn't seem to be as much of the great citrus flavor I read about. A A little more malt/bread flavor than expected.

With that being said, I do believe this is a fantastic IPA. Having drank it a month + old, I still really enjoyed it. I will certainly try to trade for this again, and re-review
