3.7/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Smells of hops and citrus. Amber in color with a slight beige head. The first taste includes a bite of carbonation and hops. The second taste consists mainly of hops and a bit of spice. The hops linger in the mouth and into the third taste. Easy drinking for an APA. Overall a good beer. This is the first beer that I've sat down and reviewed in FC. The past hundred or so I've been selfish and just drank for enjoyment. I'd drink again if my cousin brings it over again.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

hazy brownish orange, with a not quite white head.
nice hoppy aroma containing citrus, mostly a sweet grapefruit, and some pine. it's takes on a pungent perfume-y quality, with just a hint of mint. i'm not picking up any malts.
the taste is again, hoppy, with grapefruit, but also a very nice light lemony flavor. the malts don't really have any chance of coming through, as the hops really dominate here.
the thinner side of medium body sort suits it's dominating hops, lending a little to drinkability, which is quite good. it's very hoppy, but not harsh in the slightest. really quite nice, even if it is more on the IPA side of things. i don't know why it took me so long to try.

I got this brew on tap at Tank's Taproom in Tampa, Fl. The bartender said it was a fast seller and I can see why. This brew had a nice bit of fluffy head that left lots of fluffy and sticky lace, but did have high retention. The smell was the only aspect that was less than good, it was just weak. The taste on the other hand was like a hops explosion in your mouth. Very drinkable. Don't drink and review.

3.73/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into my East End pint glass.

Pours with a nice two finger head, creamy-tan colored and resilient, as it falls to a nice lacing. Slightly hazy, copper colored body.

The nose bursts with hops, floral and piney. I can smell it sitting there beside me, let alone when I bring it to my sensor.

Oddly enough, that hop presence isn't as big in the taste. Its there, in the form of a dry crisp hoppy finish that follows a good malty fronting, but I'm surprised its not as hoppy merely based on the smell. I'm thinking it may be related to the freshness of the beer.

Nice crisp mouthfeel, quite drinkable, this would be a tasty session beer. I'd like to try it as fresh as possible as I'm sure that would improve the taste. It does leave me with a nice hop-burp.

I had my doubts about this beer before trying it solely based upon the god-awful flashy label. I took that as a sign that this beer was trying to hard to tell me how "cool" it was without putting the effort into the brew itself. I was wrong. This is a great pale ale and one of the nicest I've tried in a while.

Pours a beautiful copper with a perfect head. Chilled but not icey cold so that you can actually smell and taste the lovely hops. I could have had another of these easily.

I tried this while visiting Boulder at Illegal Pete's on Pearl St along with a burrito. A highly recommended combination.

Had this beer on tap the other night. The brew had a nice copper color with a nice sized beige head that had good retention and left a fair amount of lacing. The aromas of this brew where of both hops and sweet malt. The hops gave it a citrus like scent that was more dominant but played nicely with the malt. The taste was nice, the hops where not over baring and actually where not overly noticeable till the middle and end of a sip. The malt was the first thing that I was able to notice, a nice sweet caramel flavor that was a great start to this beer. Over all I would say that this is a very drinkable brew, one that I could see myself enjoying an evening with. First offering from Boulder but now has my interest and will look for more.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

Apperance- A light copper ale with a thin white head that lasts for a good while.

Smell- Just an amazing aroma!!! Full of hops, but its not pungent or over powering. Very floral

Taste- The malt is very light not much there at all, mildly sweet. As for the hops bitterness is low and just like the armoa it tastes floral and not over powering

Mouthfeel- This beer is light in gravity, mildly carbonated. Even though there is great amount of hops and not much malt in this brew it is very ballanced and smooth.

Drinkability- I love this beer. I can drink this beer all day on a hot summer day. Great taste, ballanced and with a low/average ABV% it is something that you can enjoy many of without killing yourself

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - 3 finger head over a brown/bronze ale. Lots of tiny bubbles.

S - super grassy and dank hop aroma, I could smell this pungent brew before I even poured it. Smells very "herbal," and I don't mean herbal as in spices. I mean herbal as in Grateful Dead concert herbal. Cut grass, citrus rind, floral hops.

T - Very hoppy and delicious. Hops are very raw and dry tasting and very in your face. Green grass and farmyard hay. Mandarain oranges.

M - Acidic, medium to light bodied and decently carbonated with a moderately dry finish. Nice long lasting herbal/floral aftertaste.

D - Excellent., but the dry hopped acidity can become a bit harsh after two or three.

Should be called Crazed and Delusion(al). Long time drinker first time reviewing. The pour has a good clarity with a light copper color. A fuzzy white head that over time hides to the edge of the glass. Limited lacing though.

The nose has a big hop appeal. Mostly piney with strong notes citrus undertones. No malt aromas to really speak of. Makes me think for of an IPA then a APA.

The taste is still hop dominate, but the malt brings some flavor out as well. The hops are strong on the finishing hops but some zingy bitterness is noticeable as well. The finishing hops have a cascade like taste with an appeal of citrus back note. The malt is basic with a Pale Ale flavor, but still noticeable to back up some of the hop profile.

The body has mid to light feel. Carbonation is somewhat high that is amplified by the citrus zing from the hops. Overall this is a great beer for the hops in all of us. You'd be crazy & delusional not to try it!

Pours a cloudy, bright copper color with a beautiful, airy yet frothy head that retains magnificently transforming into a rocky mound afloat the beer. Great lacing to decorate the glassware as well. Nice!

Smells of slightly sweet malts and citrus and slightly piney hops. Caramel notes.

Taste begins with nice caramel malts, grain, and citrusy hops and end dry and semi-astringent, with full on hops. Very nice.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied but maybe slightly overcarbonated. Very crisp.

Extremely drinkable offering here from Boulder who seldomly dissapoints. This is a GREAT session beer.

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

Pours a hazy orangish copper color with a spotty lace. Smell is dominated by a nice array of fresh citrusy hops and a little bit of pine as well. Taste much like the aroma is dominated by the hops as they are all over the place. Overall, this is not a terrible APA but it really lacks in balance. If it had a little more of a malt presence, it would take this brew to another level. Not bad, just not something I will likely get again.

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

12oz bottle with the trippy hippy label, hops resembling pot leaves--a member of the Boulder's Looking Glass series. Pours a cloudy copper with orange hues. The head is very creamy and thick, a very defined and impressive cap of foam forms in the center.

The aroma is light and lemony, with hops beneath the zesty almost dish soap like scent. The flavor is also light and lemony, the hops shoved into the background--the flavor also resembles dish soap. The flavor is disappointing after the refreshing scent and impressive appearance. It's a tastes a little metallica and out of balance.

The mouth is light, has great carbonation, but is a bit uneven and lacks complexity. This is very drinkable, maybe good as a refreshment or with certain foods, but doesn't offer much in the way of character or complexity. Solid for summer session beer.

Solid color, darkish red. Citris hops, very nice smell. Decent taste, doesn't live up to aroma. Sorta like the Mojo but less tasty. Bit of a rough edge on sides of tongue. Not bad but Mojo is beter offering by Boulder Beer Co. Nice carbination, good feel. All the details of a real good beer but the taste doesn't live up to everything else. So all in all this is a medium-good beer. You could do worse. But you could do better with the same brewery.

Next time I had this after mowing the lawn it really hit the spot. Taste is probably more like a 4 but the drinkability suffers since it's hit or miss depending on your mood.

Nice brew, just a bit on the quirky side. Started good with a hazy amber pour, frothy ivory head. A real hop-sical in the aroma, tons of hops, pine, citrus and floral.

But the taste, yeah it was hoppy, but lacking any real flavor. Very surprising. Dry and tart, it was worth a try and would have another – if offered or available.

AP: A semi-cloudy and very active deep amber color. Big fat, frothy head with long sticky legs. Good retention.

Nose: Ultra earthy/fruity hop scent is very aromatic with a mild malt effect.

Taste: A full-on hop extravaganza, earthy>fruity>citrus>leafy effects are all included. Sweet malt comes through at the end.

MF: light to medium body, feels crisp with a good bite.

DA: Another hoppy wonder.

12oz bottle -> goblet
no date

Pours a slightly hazed copper with gold highlights. Topped by a tight chunky head that leaves sheets of tight lace up until the very bitter end. Robust carbontion present.

Nose: Very floral hoppy head, with bitter grapefruit.

Taste: Floral hops and mid drink bitterness skip the malt and keep on hitting. A dry bittering aftertaste keeps on trucking well after the last sip. Slightly drier than most, i found this an interesting brew, although quite unbalanced for an apa.

Mouth: A thin mouth is well hidden by the robust hoppiness. Probably feels thinner because this taste more liked a superhopped ipa than an apa.

A very drinkable brew for you hopheads out there, may be a bit unbalanced for a normal apa, so if you're not a hop enthusiast, give it a pass.

Note: I hadn't drank this beer in a while, and had one a few weeks back that basically tasted liked nothing. This beer came from a fresh case and is outstanding. So try and drink this one fresh.

Poured this undated 12 oz. brown bottle into an IPA glass. Cloudy leather brown/amber colored body. A tall, 3+ fingers of cola foam colored head. Significant lacing dirtied the glass.

Smell was a spicy and floral. Mild tobacco hints. Resin.

Taste was puckering tart/bitter. Firm maltiness attempted to get noticed above the hop display. Grapefruit pith. Juicy.

Mouthfeel was oily slipperness. No alcohol bite. Easy to drink. Thin to medium bodied. I wont rush to buy more but I would drink it again.

This is a hoppy APA that could pass for an IPA if you didn't know better.

Appearance: Served a copper color Infused with gold a large beige head and lacing.

Smell: The aroma is dominated by the hops.

Taste: The taste actually balances a bit but there is hop flavors then pale malt and more bittering. This is one that is simple and really led by the grapefruit and pine flavor not the sweet undertones.

Drinkability: It is a hop heads dream but otherwise it is a bit simple. That said it is certainly easy drinking nonetheless, (I like hops).

Hope this is helpful.
Cheers!

My original 2006 review follows. At that time, this was a new style. In the last 6 years many new beers of this style have come out so I lowered my ratings to indicate a new relative ranking. My old one was much higher, with several 5's.

This is one of my favorite what I call over-hopped ales. It really works well. I generally enjoy that genre - not too thick, not to thin, and a compost pile of hops. This one has more of the lighter aspects and it's not at all boozy so you can drink a few without falling down.

What I dislike the most about it - the label! Just kidding. The label is OK too, just maybe looks a little, I don't know, feminine.

12oz. bottle thanks to jhammerly

Pours a hazy amber-brown with a creamy white head that thins. Thick lacing on the glass.

Aroma is grapefruit citrusy with a slight floral smell.

Taste is grapefruit hops upfront with a slight floral taste. This is followed by a mild caramel mailtiness that leads into a bitter hop bite and finishes with more citrusy hops.

Light body, nice carbonation.

An all around solid APA. Nicely balanced and easy to drink.

12oz. Bottle

Hazed poured a very hazy orange. Two finger rocky head off-white head. Head fades slowly but is creamy throughout drink. Some sticky lacing lasts throughout. Looks tasty.

The smell is great. Sweetened grapefruit and some floral hops. I can also smell a dampness or earthyness. Makes me want to take a great big pull.

Taste is pretty good. Hops across the tongue at first. Grapefruit. With the bitterness. Followed by malt to balance and more bitterness lingers at the end.

Mouthfeel is good. The carbonation is nice a little tingly across my tongue. If there's anything wrong with the mouthfeel it would be it's just a touch watery but not enough to take extra points off.

Drinkability is very good. Definately a beer you could enjoy a few at a sitting.

Overall this is a really good beer. I've drank it quite a few times and the fresher you get it the better it is. the explosiveness of the hops in both the smell and taste drop as the beer sits on the shelf. Hazed and Infused is a good choice though.

Slainte!
