One of my favorite IPAs to date. Had it on tap at Pagosa Brewing & Grill, and brought home a squealer (32 oz jug). Definitely liked it better than the milder Pagosa Pale Ale. Strong hops with a balanced flavor that is perfect after a hard day of skiing at Wolf Creek, great pine and citrus notes and aromas.
Serving type: on-tap

With an aggressive pour the head is only one finger and very "airy," but dissipates down to nothing. No lacing. Cloudy caramel color. (The beer unfiltered so I don't know if the cloudiness is intentional or just a necessary evil.)
Pleasant grapefruit nose, slightly floral, sweet and a little spicy.
Initially the flavor is sweet and citrusy with a little bitterness in the back of the mouth. (Note the beer had been the very back of the fridge and was about 38F.) As the beer warmed to a more reasonable temp. the flavors really woke up, and the hops became more noticeable. It seems a bit more malty than on the hoppy.
Very smooth and viscous.
Serving type: growler

Not real sure in the ABV, if memory serves me correct 7.3%
Poured caramel with 2 fingers of off-white head. Good lacing & head retention
S: Nice piney hops with some breadyness. Caught citric hops once warmed up
T: Piney hops, a bit of caramel & breadyness up up front. Citrussy hops surface as this warmed. Finished with nice hop snap & decent maltyness
MF: Medium-bodied with a little chewyness, moderate carbonation & great balance
Drank really easy for the ABV. A pretty good offering. well done AIPA!
