3.35/5 rDev -10.7%
Appearance: reddish-brown with a lumpy off-white head that dissipates to a thin layer after a few minutes. Decent lacing.
Aroms: some citrusy hops present.
Taste: decent hop bitterness with citrus notes, as well as roasty and caramel notes from the malt.
Mouthfeel: smooth with moderate carbonation.
Overall: decently balanced. Fairly quaffable and enjoyable without being amazing.

12oz bottle, another choice selection in a mixed-sixer furor in a Denver area bottleshop.
This beer pours a clear, dark bronzed amber hue, with three fingers of puffy, sudsy, and weakly foamy dirty white head, which leaves some stellar specked bonsai tree lace around the glass as it slowly ebbs away.
It smells of bitter citrus and floral hops, nutty caramel malt, a bit of creamy milkiness, and further earthy, leafy hops. The taste is bittersweet cocoa, gritty caramel malt, a subdued hint of citrus pith, middling hard water notes, and earthy, leafy hops.
The bubbles are fairly restrained and obsequious, the body a decent medium weight, generally smooth, and maybe a tad creamy. It finishes with a nod to the sweet side, the caramel, nuts, and cocoa characteristics overriding the majority of the lingering citrus and leafy hops.
Another brown/roasted/black treatment of an IPA. Enough all fucking ready - the brown ale/stout essences just don't mesh all that well with the saucy, zippy nature of a well-wrought hoppy pale ale. Or maybe this offering just approached this from the diametrically opposite angle.
