Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, beer is a clear golden color - slightly lighter than what I've come to expect from an AIPA, with a thin soapy head and sticky lacing that I had anticipated. The smell is all AIPA - big citrus hops upfront (grapefruit, orange and pine) with just a waft of toasted background malt. The taste also reflects the big citrus hops, which leaves the balance on the hoppy side but it isn't such a hop-bomb that ruins the palate. The alcohol taste is distracted by the hoppy finish. The mouthfeel is a little light with a moderate amount of pillowy carbonation. Overall drinkability is pretty good, not a quaffer but a solid drinker. Not an extreme IPA by any means but a well done one.

On draft at Brixx in Charlottesville, VA.

One finger off-white head, clear gold body. For some reason, my glass had a tiny leaf in it. Probably the glass, not the beer. Good lace.

Smells like fresh hops and that's it.

Taste is actually much milder. Some floral hops on the front, honey, some fruity sweetness-- quite nice.

Subtly textured feel.

Better than expected. Well balanced.

Into an American pint glass, poured a cloudy orange-amber, with a finger of white, decent retention, and good lacing. Smelled of pine, herbs, grass, menthol, grapefruit, orange peel, and lemon. The taste confirmed a nice citrus/malt blend, that also revealed some apple midpalate, and finished on a bitter dry peel note. Nicely-done ipa. Modestly carbonated, medium bodied brew. Great session ipa, as abv is well hidden.

Purchased as a six pack in Boulder, sampled by itself both out of the fridge and chilled in the river at Eldorado. Nice reddish orange with a thick white head. Nice retention and pretty lacing.

Strong citrus and floral hop aromas. Thankfully, these come forth in the flavor, though accentuated with a nice sharp pine. Lingering in the background, hanging out though never making an overwhelming statement, is a hearty malt base.

Medium mouthfeel with lingering bitterness that left a dry tongue. Quite drinkable, the 7% is well hidden, and enjoyable.

Dark golden color. A little on the cloudy side. Nice frothy white head at first that drop to a thin sticky film. Globs of lacing. Fruity smell that is stong on the pineapple side. This is a very unique and appealing hop smell that I can't say that I've noticed before. Taste isn't quite as good as the smell but is still much better than average. Hops leans toward the piney side in the taste. Mouthfeel is a little sticky and resinous. Everything considered this is another good IPA to go with all the other ones that are available.

Hazy, bright orange/gold. Thin head that leaves a a solid ring of big bubbles

A lot of citrus hops. Some pine resin and a little mango. A small amount of sweet caramel and honey.

Very bitter with an overload of piercing citrus to piney. Very dry and unbalanced towards the back. The hops seem way out of whack and overbearing. I can barely get through the hops to pull anything else out of this beer.

Relatively light body but hard to get past the bitterness. Struggled through my bomber.

12 oz bottle from mix pack, 2 months from drink by date, guessing that makes it 4 months old, not ideal not terrible though.

A: Somewhere between an amber and yellow, "west coast" ipa in color. Pours a small white head, dissipated pretty quickly, with a some lacing but not very much.

S: Not overwhelming, citrus based hops, quite sweet in flavor, sour orange, not much maltiness, smells good though.

T: Hops right up front, initially an earthy/grassy/marijuana flavor of hops, then a very sweet citrus, more pineapple than grapefruit, not overly bitterr. For color has a nice malt backbone, wasnt expecting this, not overly dark but a nice molasses/rasin bread flavor.

M: A tad thin, decent to low carbonation, had a oily slick to it though, tasted more like a 6.5% than 7.2% (not necessarily good or bad, flavor wasnt overwhelming) One of the more session-able ipas.

O: Solid brew from Boulder, i recall it being much hoppier when fresher. Nothing crazy but its a good brew from a good value brewery. You defnitely get your moneys worth and wont be disappointing.

This beer is solid, just like the Hazed and Infused I sampled from Boulder was. Orange color, moderate off-white head that shrinks a bit but some remains creating really nice lacing. The aroma is hoppy with fruity notes and is pleasant. The flavor is a nice crisp bitter hoppy bite with some tangy fruits. Hops are clearly the dominant flavor. Bitter and very dry finish. Definitely a solid IPA and I would for sure get it again.

There is no freshness date on the bottle. This has an amber colour with a rather head and is fairly cloudy. When I sniffed into the bottle it seemed very much a herbal hop concoction with a rather metallic nose, but in my glass it smells much sweeter.

It adopts the numerous miniscule bubbles approach to carbonation and begins sweetly before giving way to a bitter orange rind hoppiness. Not bad at all, but not oustanding for an IPA of this strength says this spoiled adopted Oregonian (when I lived in Ohio I would have swooned over this stuff). It seems to get sweeter and change from orange rind to ruby red grapefruit as it warms. Don't serve too cold!

Served in a pint glass from a 12oz brown bottle,crimp on cap.

Golden/coppery color.a creamy white head lacing down the glass,very retentive.
A clean aroma piney,very citrusy,a sweet carmelly malt nose a very inticing aroma.
The taste was piney,citrusy,a bit grapefruity,malt tastes of sweet caramel and a little nutty taste with a honeyness to the sweet taste.
A very nicely balanced flavor with a sharp,crisp bitterness to add to a perfect finish.
A medium mouthfeel,a slight cloying,smooth,subtle not overpowering
Highly drinkable and very enjoyable, a must try IPA.

Served on tap at Mad Mex in standard pint glass. Pours a copper color, somewhat hazy. No head but likely from the bartender's pour. Reeks of hops: citrus and floral aromas. Hop character shines through on the taste. Gives a nice resiney aftertaste. Very slight malt background. A very solid IPA. If in the mood for hops this one's a go-to.

Growler from CBX. Served in a Dogfish Head shaped pint glass...

A: Pours a rusty gold with two fingers of cream head; a steady bubble stream keeps retention going until the glass is empty, leaving some hefty gobs of lace.

S: Grapefruit; light resiny hop notes; a touch grassy; caramel malt sweetness in the background.

T: Orange rind; nice citrus flavors - almost tropical fruit esque, but not quite; very sweet (IPA-wise) on the end - something a little drier would be nice; not crushingly bitter.

M: Full bodied; medium carbonation; a smidge viscous; kinda heavy, but very smooth.

O: Wow... this is a very drinkable IPA; the malt sweetness definitely cuts the dryness typical of others in this style, but in the long run that does help out the drinkability factor; a very enjoyable - and one of the best “bargain” IPAs; if there was such a thing as a session American IPA, Mojo would get my vote.
