From 22 oz bottle...shipped into Colorado.
Poured into Eku Pils tulip glass.
Pours a copper color with small head.
Aroma is hoppy but seemingly oxidized.
Modest carbonation and mouthfeel.
Flavors of wet copy paper, funky grapefruit rind, rosemary and other staunch herbs. Humm...I'm not sure 5 minutes will help. Is this a deterioration due to shipping and/or age, or is this how it came from the brewery?

On tap at Goofy's. Served in a pint glass.

Pours a pale gold color. Creamy white head.

Smell is faint. A citrus and pine aroma.

Taste is malty up front with a dry flavorless bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is thin and dry.

Overall a very average IPA. Given any other choice I wouldn't have this one again.

On tap at SAVOR 2011. Served in a goblet.

Pours a slightly-hazy peach color with a good white head and some slight lacing on the way down. The nose brings some citrus and floral hops, as well as a bit of grain. The flavor is quite grainy and a bit tannic. Citrus hops make it in, but are a back seat to the grain. The mouthfeel is bitter and dry, though more of this comes from grain tannins than hops, which is unfortunate. Wouldn't have this one again.

22oz bottle poured into a large mug. No code or date. Why are there so many with no code or date?

Pours moderately hazy, amber-copper, medium head, medium amount of fine carbonation. Sediment left a layer in the bottle; swirling would probably have left it very cloudy, and leaving some in the bottle would probably have left it pretty clear. Smell is malty, a little medicinal.

Taste is malty and somewhat medicinal. This isn't the right word, but I haven't found a good way to describe it.

A lot of the aroma and taste characteristic I'm starting to mentally associate with old IPAs, but without a bottle date, it's hard to tell. I may go seek out a bunch of old IPAs to see if this is a common characteristic. Maybe I'll age a Maximus and try it next to a fresh one.

Mouthfeel is thick. Overall, I'm underwhelmed.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Mild orange appearance, good soapy head to it. Aroma was minimally citrus. Not the biggest, if any degree of dry hopping on this one.

Easy drinking ipa, average bitterness, hopping, caramel. Standard recipe and delivery. Carbonation was fine. Citrus cedes to pine flavor. Not really a whole lot to speak of, a run of the mill ipa at a decent price. Probably wouldn't buy it again since there are so many options out there. Definitely wouldn't turn down one of 'em either though.

Clear orange colored ale with a tall off-white colored head. This is solidly in the middle of the color spectrum I call "IPA Orange."

Smell is mostly woody and spicy. Strong pine with a little citrus and not a lot more.

Starts out woody and bitter with some malt tasted. Basic West Coast IPA flavor, fairly high hops with a sharp bitter finish. Not all that much nuance here, it quickly becomes just another IPA in my glass.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall an average IPA in all respects.
