look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A - Clear golden color with a very slight head.
S - Slight hop aroma, some malty aromas and a hint of butter.
T - Buttery diacetyl evident, with a slight hop aroma, and substantial bitterness, followed by some alcohol notes.
M - Medium full bodied, with good carbonation.

The buttery flavor and lack of finishing hops in this beer are very disappointing.

this is a terrible ipa by colorado standards. malty and thick and sweet and full of stale grain and other off flavors, it does absolutely nothing for me, and a single bottle is more than i can tolerate. sad, because this is a cool place, and their other beers have something different to offer, but this is brutal to me. coppery looking brew, with a nose more like an english pale than an american ipa. the flavor is nothing but bitterness from the hops and way more grain heft than the beer needs or wants. metallic notes and lumpy post mash slop flavors to this, cerealy, balanced in a bad way. fuller bodied too, and probably overcarbonated, it offers very little. filling and not very tasty, this is the worst kannah creek beer i have had, and ive liked most of their stuff, but an ipa is the style by which breweries are judged these days, and this is unacceptable.

Appearance: Pale to Deep Gold. Head was not very existent and faded fast.

Smell: Lots of northwest hops but no malt on the nose

Taste: Bitter hops dominate, not this brewers strong point. Citrus and flowers.

Mouthfeel: The highlight of the beer. The hops fade and a somewhat creamy texture developes, surprising give how the beer started.

Drinkability: Nothing to write home about but not going to have another.
