look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Poured into a pint glass from a 12 oz bottle yielding a dark orange color with a soapy 2 finger head. The lacing on this beer is excellent. Bottled on 9/4/12.

S: Smells sweet with accompanying grapefruit citrus and pine notes. This smells more malt forward than I would have expected.

T: The taste begins with citrus (grapefruit) andy pine hops, followed quickly by sweet carmel malts. The taste finishes sweet with some floral hops for balance. The beer is slightly bitter at finish, certainly on the sweeter sider of the IPA spectrum.

M: The beer has an excellent mouthfeel. It slightly coats the mouth, but finishes clean. This may be my favorite part of this beer.

O: This IPA is a bit to sweet for me. grapefruit and pine flavors present are pleasing but they are dominated in the end by the sweetness of the malt. The appearance and mouthfeel for this beer are excellent however. I would like to try this fresh or on tap. This is a beer worth trying, but for those who prefer a more bitter and astringent IPA this may not be the beer for you.

Cheers!

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

I just had a Hop Czar before this one and I was horribly disappointed with that IPA because it lacked the attributes I expect from an Oregon IPA.

On the other hand, this IPA is quite satisfying.

Appearance - a bit more orange-colored than typical. Certainly attractive with good lacing but to be honest who cares how it looks?

Aroma - Definite pine notes with orange and grapefruit aromas. A little bit of a sweetness to the aroma. Very, very good.

Taste - It has the bitterness we expect from an IPA but it also has the

Mouthfeel - Good carbonation and a smooth drink.

I really enjoy this one and considering it is a very reasonably priced beer in Denver I think this is going to be one of my main IPAs.

3.88/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle served in a Fat Squirrel pint glass. Bottled on 23 April, 2012 and stored refrigerated most or all of the time since.

Pours a very clear amber with a fairly creamy, eggshell colored head. The head has decent retention and leaves the glass pretty well coated.

A nice fresh hop aroma and flavor, especially given nearly 6 months since bottling. The aftertaste has a nice orange/citrus aspect in addition to the usual grapefruit rind. Aroma gets a bit more earthy with warming.

O: a satisfying, well-crafted, citrusy IPA. Has a higher ABV than usual which is well-hidden in the taste and nose, but mars the mouthfeel.

Best Before 01/21/13

A: Pours a copper color with a fingers worth of sticky bubbly head

S: Nice and hoppy, with a solid citrus kick and a decent malt backbone. West coast all the way

T: Follows the nose. Very citrusy and refreshing, with a good malt backing and slight estery alcohol. Not too bitter for 82 IBUs

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A bit rough

O: A nice IPA that stands firmly in the crowded room of IPAs. Nothing special, but worth a try

3.9/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

appearance: pretty, yellow-orange. Thick messy off white head and lacing.
smell: Definitely an IPA. Doesn't distinguish itself though pleasant enough. Piney, citrus and floral hops with a slight malty sweetness.
taste: The flavor is very similar to the nose but adds a balance and creaminess that does distinguish this from many IPA's.
overall: With all the great IPA's, hard to rise above. This one does a bit though doesn't hit elite.
