Had this on tap at the brewery. The brewmaster, Steve, told me he thought this beer weighed in at 6.2% ABV and that the tap lines came directly from the bright tank. Poured a hazy dark orange color with a small off-white head that left some nice rings of lacing at went down. Very nice hoppy aroma, plenty of citrus notes going on including orange and grapefruit, maybe hints of pineapple and a balanced malty sweetness. Flavor is excellent. This beer has all the great hop flavors you'd expect from a top notch IPA without any of the bitterness. Juicy hops, plenty of orange and grapefruit with a solid pale malt backbone. medium bodied, crisp, ultra refreshing. I was very impressed by this beer. So tasty, incredibly drinkable, bitterness is low while keeping lots of hop flavor. Excellent IPA. Well done, Potosi.

On tap at the GLBF 2010.

Aroma:Subdued hoppy aroma.

Appearance:Cloudy and honey colored. Very nice head with good retention.

Taste:On first sip, I get tons of citrus. Grapefruit, orange, lemon all mixed together, very tasty. Sweet base. This tastes really fresh.

Mouthfeel:Light to medium body, a little hop astringency.

Drinkability:This is an amazing IPA, tons of complex flavors, very pleasant.

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.

Yeah, wow. IPA. Hops! Fresh and wonderfull. Great beer. Floral aroma. Lots of Pacific Northwest hop character. Orange zest and wild flower. Delicious. Not sweet, and not terribly bitter if you are used to hoppy beers. very good. I'm guessing this is very fresh as I've had and enjoyed this beer in the past, but this is in another realm. Goes to show that freshness is key when it comes to hoppy beers and reviewing obviously old ones is futile and stupid.

An tap at Potosi Brewing Company/ National Beer Museum. Served as part of a 5 glass sampler/pint and in bottles and growlers. Amazingly we did all of the above, which I think speaks well for this IPA.

Although flavorful it borders on an APA in regards to its malt hop bitterness balance. Its hop flavor, body and carbonation are ideal for this style. An excellent brew overall pairing well with most food orders. Brewmaster is a former Bell's brewer and the brewing equipment is new and well maintained as evidenced by a brief tour and a pig-tail sample of the oatmeal stout that is about to go on tap in a few days.

Anyone turning out this quality of beer should be able to formulate and brew most of the styles they offer.

Saw several growler of this leave while we had their Sunday food bar. We had decided against traveling 700 miles with a growler but discovered a growler came free with the purchase of a shirt at the gift shop.
