This deserves an update. I had this when it was first made and the owners would personally show up for tappings and hand out glassware. I wasn't really a fan of this beer and liked their single IPA Lift Off better. They changed the recipe after the initial roll out which made it better but not by a lot.

Last week the GF visited the brewery and brought me back 4 pack of cans. They have significantly upgraded the quality of this beer. The aroma is huge and the hop bite is fantastic. If I could knock it all I would say it needs a little more malt flavor.

Aroma is muted grapefruit, pine, resin, and biscuity malt. Fairly grassy.

Flavor is very pine dominant, with a grapefruit zest background and a solid, bready malt backbone.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden with a head of white lace.

Aroma: Tropical hops all over the place. Solid.

Taste: Bitter grapefruit, tropical, orange. There is a lingering bitterness or acidity here that’s a bit off-putting, and a slight warming at the finish. Solid, but not a favorite.

Cold from the tap to a 12oz snifter @ the Tap during Bloomington Craft Beer Week. Cloudy honey'd gold with a 1/2 finger long lasting, off white head leaving lace to the rim after each sip.

Big floral hops aroma, sweet and long lasting.

Big bodied, smooth and creamy, floral, maybe even tropical hops up front and smooth honey sugars after, hiding the bitter bite.

Great beer, thumbs up to the daredevil guys !
