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.

In the can in a pizza place (no glass). Surprised by the fruit & hops & lack of acidic burn. Tasty but light. Clean. Would definitely get again.

12 oz can from Ohio with a 30 May 2018 fill date stamp served in a pint glass in August 2018.
Pours orange-amber with a tall, creamy, off-white head. Great lacing and decent retention.
Markedly fruity aroma featuring citrus with some alcohol esters and a touch of dankness.
Mild+ bitterness for style with touches of sweetness at the front of the tongue but with a moderately bitter aftertaste. Good complexity and balance.
Near full body with medium carbonation.
Overall: a fine IPA that, at 7.2% ABV, is dangerously drinkable.

Served in pint glass. Pours a beautiful rich copper color with medium head. Good lacing on glass.

Strong grapefruit and citrus. Earthy, pine with slight hint of malt.

Semi-sweet, fruity taste with a crisp and dry finish. Perfect bitterness for my palate.

Very good, West Coast take IPA. Best Cincinnati brewed IPA in my opinion. Borderline sessionable as a 7.2%. 9/10 beer for me.

Just a solid stout all the way around. Nothing too crazy or groundbreaking but something you could definitely turn to as a go to IPA that is easy accessible.

Canned on 7/10/18

Pours a clean shade of dark copper that sports a towering off-white cap; this is one damn nice-looking beer.

The aroma pops with crispy, dank mango, tons of grapefruit, fresh grass, passionfruit, and even a bit of pine cone; some sharp tones of earthy malt make their way in towards the finish along with some influential herbaceous qualities.

Taste brings blasts of hoppy, semi-tart grapefruit to the forefront, blanketing softer notes of grass, fruity hops, light and chewy grain, and crisp malt.

Mouthfeel has excellent body with a higher level of carbonation than most, which interacts really nicely with the beer's crisp notes for a soft and dry finish.

Really enjoyed the malt presence in this one, as it added so much without becoming an overwhelming presence fighting the hops for attention; overall just some really good stuff, and a dangerously crushable 7% at that.
