Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, bright, caramel coloring with a frothy, foamy, off-white head that settles into a sparse surface coating. Aromas of spicy hops forward, with a toffee and caramel backbone, cedar notes, and a solid bitterness. Flavors are tangy sweet forward, with toffee leading the charge, followed quickly by pepper spice, resiny cedar and bitterness, and a solid ribbon of tart grapefruit. Very well layered flavors. Robust and light bodied at the same time, with a very bitter, resiny aftertaste. This one gets big at the end. Bitter and slightly tart linger on a dry, resiny finish. This is a good IPA.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on June 9, 2013.

It pours an attractive looking medium to dark amber with a carbonated head that tops its off for the entire session. Lingers.

The aroma is upfront sweet and malty with an earthy hop feel that tends to take over quickly. It seems to fit into the style well.

The body is clearly astringent and acidic but there is also an unusual creaminess that accompanies it, which is a but odd for an IPA - but not offensive.

The taste boasts a full hop bitterness with the malts and other sweet character played down. It finishes a tad dry in a satisfying fashion. Decent enough American IPA.

A: Pours a clear orange-amber, with a big a good sized white head. Leaves a lot of sticky lacing as the glass is emptied. It's a pretty good looker, but I'd prefer it to be a bit hazier.

S: This is the 4000 Footer's strong suit. Even after letting the bomber sit in my fridge for a month or two, the nose is just a blast of dank, bitter hops--lots of grass and pine, with a bit of citrus. It smells like the freezer at the homebrew store. The smell is definitely not balanced--very little in the way of malts--and normally I look for more of a balance, but this was just such a fresh, clean, bright, hoppy smell that I couldn't keep my nose out of the glass.

T: The hops don't dominate the taste as much as they do the smell, with some crackery malts to balance out the grapefruit and pine notes of the hops. The finish is a bit herbal, with a strong lingering bitterness, but not bad.

M: Medium-bodied, but perhaps a bit under-carbonated, and quite dry. The bitter finish leaves some prickliness on the tongue, but overall quite drinkable.

O: I had read the 82 IBUs, but still wasn't expecting something quite so hoppy from a brewery that otherwise doesn't seem to do hop bombs. It was a pleasant surprise, and the smell alone was a real treat. Perhaps with a few tweaks, this could be a really great beer, but as it is it's solid and one I'll definitely pick up again.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #67 (August 2012):

LOOK: Quick frothing, clear pale amber

SMELL: Grapefruit rind, passion fruit, pineapple skin, green peppercorn, herbal, estery, crackers

TASTE: Smooth, crisp snap, bitter, grapefruit pith, heather, peppery, lime leaves, dry toast, yeast, slightly warming alcohol, very bitter finish

Wow, talk about being caught off-guard. Yeah, we saw the 82 IBU’s on the label, but we run into that on nearly a daily basis. 4000’er rakes down our taste buds with bitterness and a pretty wild flavor profile. Even the raw nature of this beer does not distract our palate from the massive hop presence here.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains fruity citrus, grassy hops and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with some sweet flavors of citrus and caramel. Then a strong but not over-powering hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly bitter.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, decent kick, decent representation of style, it’s not a bad beer but there are several other choices in the style that are better.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass, says 6.5 abv and 82 IBUs. Pours a clear bright reddish orange, with a half inch of off white head, that leaves traces of lace. Smell is bread, carmel, grass, and some citrus. Taste is bigger and more bitter than the smell would have you expect, some grapefruit sticks in the finish. Body is medium, not a ton of carbonation, lush in front and a dry finish, and very drinkable. This is a different and pleasant IPA.
