A- Clear Ruby amber with a nice lacy head.

S- Mild hoppy smell. Not what I was expecting for something that was dry hopped for so long. You name the hop characteristic and it's there though. Carmel notes in there too, probably from the crystal malt though and not hops.

T Smooth, bitter, and malty. Big bitter taste that fills the mouth with a wonderful hoppy flavor.

M- You need a fork and knife to eat this. Thick thick thick.

O- Man, what a wonderful triple APA. You can tell that a lot of work went into this and it was done very well.

Being new to IPA's this one really did get me hooked. After having others and coming back to it, it was not a let down by any means. The Colorado was beautiful,but Colorado doesn't mask the smell of alcohol,or stop it from burning your tongue. Overall,I enjoyed every sip

Enjoying 8 ounces, in a snifter, on tap, at Founders, for $5.

A: Pretty. Pours a hazy orange.

S: The most intense pine I've ever sniffed in a beer! Some tropical fruits try to squeeze through, but this is all about the pine (and the hints of pot, onions, basil, etc...).

T: I like it a lot. Sweet, piney, goodness, with a hint of tropical fruit. If George Brett was here, he'd make them check the glass for pine tar!

M: I don't know how one beer can be both oily and sticky but it is. Medium to full bodied with nice carbonation.

O: Damn good beer. One of the most complex beers I've ever had. Couldn't drink too many, but I like it a lot.
