A - The color of this brew is spectacular, a beautiful hazy amber gold, with a thick creamy head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass. Looks like a classic beer.
S - It might just be me, but it honestly doesn't smell like very much at all. Maybe a little hint of hops here or there, but for the most part I can't pick up on anything.
T - I sure am glad it doesn't taste how it smells! This beer tastes wonderful, like an IPA mixed with a thick lager. Lots of hops, lots of citrus, and some pound cake maybe at the very end. Also picked up on ritz bitz cracker maybe? The aftertaste i very pleasant as well.
M - Nice and thick, unlike some other IPAs. Not too thick, but a lot more character than I'm generally used to for the style, and that's not a bad thing.
O - Having only recently being introduced to Boulder, I must say that so far I am very impressed by their beers. All of them are very flavorful and full and are perfect examples of their respective styles. This beer is no different, and is a great example of a British style ale.

03/04/14 On tap. Very nice stuff. This shows how a well behaved member of the hop family of brews can please and I am very pleased. Wonderful balance. Smells hoppier than it tastes. Good cold. Doesn't look like I'll get try it at room temp. At 6.5% this should be monitored carefully as it very deceptive & delicious.
***Note: Not sure why I dis'sed the nitro experience last year (see below). It may be that the nitro addition of more fizz let the temperature raise & open up too much hoppiness. Note the mention of "good cold". I tend to forgive the author as he's usually drinking on the job. Jul'14
08/20/13 On nitro tap. Let me start by saying that I'm not a hops fan, but this is beer reinforce that. This is the first time I've ever truly regret not having had a taste first. I've spent the money & will drink it down, as not to fret the bar, but this should have a warning label. IMO this is way off base & I see the Rate Beer give it an 88 rating? A jaundiced view, no doubt.
