Pours a dark amber/honey honey with a very thick foamy head (4 fingers). Head retention and lacing is excellent. Not much of a rival that I have seen there. Hoppy, citric aroma with resin. There is also a strong malty component to it. Bready. Strong malt backbone up front with a big piney hop. More of a spicy, resin taste at the end. Bitter aftertaste, but it does seem bready. Good beer, the maltiness is a little much when compared to the hops.

This is a great beer/ipa. If you like this, try the modus hoperandi or the upslope ipa. The best of the Rockies. Can't wait to visit the sante fe brewery. Must try their other products. It,s all about the hops. Always is, always will be. Wish I could find 12 packs.

Undated sixer of cans from Gomer's in Lee's Summit, MO.
Pours a crystalline amber orange, fully saturated color with a steady rising plume of carbonation visible in the center. Sticky collar of lacing on the opposite side of the glass. Cirrus patterned skim across the surface. Head fades fairly quickly.
Caramel malt aroma, multigrain bread crusts, mild pine and dried citrus peel.
Resiny pine and lightly sweet dried citrus, caramel malt breadiness, bitter orange marmalade on toast. Hops seem a little faded, not sure of the age of the cans. Medium bodied with a resiny hop bitterness, not as light and drinkable as some IPA's but still a pretty textbook example.
