Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #49 (Feb 2011):

Pale amber, clear with a sizable head. This one is dry hopped to the hilt, with big aromatics of citrus, peppercorn, pine and fruit. Smoothness is not shy and wraps tightly around the tongue. Hop flavor has a soft oily character that unleashes sugges- tions of pine, grapefruit, wild herbs and mild tobacco. Malt rings in with ample sweetness and a firm biscuity flavor within to build a great foundation. Spicy warm alcohol is a bit fruity. There's balance over the boisterous bitterness, yet the hops are still showcased. A good drink that we'd love to come back to. (626 characters)

This beer provides a very thick, rich, yellow/tan collored head when poured. Citrus/piney notes to the aroma. This beer has a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Not dry or crisp at all. The flavor lingers in the mouth for a while. The taste is low on hops for an IPA. It would be a good transition beer for people who haven't aquired a taste for a full blown IPA. As far as drinkability goes, I don't think I'd want more than 2 at any one time. (435 characters)

Clear golden copper with a moderate stack of stained ivory suds.
The nose is fairly closed, grapefruit and pine squeak through, as does some toasted breadiness. It smells decent, but requires strong inhales...though it does open a bit over time.
Through the mouth, it brings a sturdy breadiness, backed with hints of toast and nuts. It turns a tad sweeter as it goes, approaching fry bread. Hops are boisterous, but lack a certain amount of clarity. Grapefruit and pine are here, as well as pineapple, hay, and metal, and some gin-centric botanicals.
The body is fleece like, with a medium carbonation. It doesn't distinguish itself uniquely in the IPA realm, but it has some session capacity. (694 characters)

Poured into a tulip glass

Aroma: this beer smells great. Strong grapefruit on the nose

Palate: medium body, little carbonation.

Taste: along with the pine and citrus this beer tastes very sweet. Honestly I think I taste some candy corn or some sort of candy

Overall: a very good brew and a nice ipa (334 characters)

Poured a nice amber/orange with a touch of haze, a thick off white head with nice lacing.

The smell was dominated by juniper and grapefruit.

A decently balanced IPA, very green hops with a big bit of pine and a touch of grapefruity citrus with just a bit of bready malts making it through the hops.

The mouthfeel was a touch thick and oily with a bit of a dry finish.

Easy drinking and solid IPA, I liked this the best out of the 3 Potosi Beer's I had. (456 characters)
