pint at the brewpub

a: shaker pint serving, the beer is, unexpectedly, a deep amber-brown in color, topped with a lasting layer of off-white carbonation that leaves heavy lace

s: huge hop nose heavily tilted towards resinous, oily grapefruit rind with some sweeter orange notes, the base being a combination of caramel and toasted nuts, providing a firm counter to the aggressive, dominant hops, has a dirty and rustic nature, a brash and gritty ipa, lovely

m: medium bodied beer carbonated to a moderate level, smooth on the palate

t: a moderately malty body combines caramel sugars and toasted nuts to provide a complex base for the monster hop bill, which involves a full load of citrus, resinous bitter grapefruit and sweeter orange notes, moving into a fully bittered end with a long finish, earthy and rustic

o: a great ipa - the malts give a sturdy body but are ultimately overcome, making for a complex experience, excellent hop profile, sucker for a malted but still hugely hopped ipa, unique

A-amber with a thin cream colored head

S-fresh citrusy hops. Tangerine and grapefruit. Awesome. Strong scent.

T-comes in with such a great taste of creamy, fresh citrusy hops. Slight bitterness. Great quality. In and out its amazing. Good after-taste with a touch of grains. A lot more bitterness in the end.

M-bitter, medium carbonation with a creamy finish

O-This is a actually an amazing ipa. The flavors are great and well balanced. It's very bitter. It's not missing anything. One of the best IPAs I've had from a micro!
