look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: 4.25 - Lovely clear mahogany color with a dense 3 quarters inch head atop it.
S: 4.0 - Resiny, earthy hops with a light bread-crust malt scent.
T: 4.0 - High bitterness with a sharp piney hop flavor. Malt is ... more nutty than in the nose. In any case, nice interplay between hops and malt. Clean yeast-wise, with a dry finish.
M: 3.75 - Medium body, neutral texture.
O: 4.0 - Very drinkable IPA. Like the malt a lot. It's a little too strong to be a quaffing, session beer, but it's a good after-dinner drink.

Revisited this IPA last night, had been awhile. Very serviceable IPA that will keep a number of beer drinkers happy. Nice balance, character and ABV % Great choice for those entering the realm of IPAs. Also a very good price and value for a 6-pack. Colorado Craft in a can, well done Upslope!

From the can. Sampled on September 16, 2014. In trade from a non-BA member.

Orange amber pour under a full white head. Good clarity.

Fine pungent floral and earthy hop aroma with bread and biscuit. Hops are the more prominent.

Medium to full body.

Great malt start with a wonderful bitterness at the finish. Grand hop character yet well balanced.

Drank from a can in Steamboat Springs, CO. Drinks very smooth with moderate carbonation and a medium body. Citrusy hops and a strong malt profile. A very balanced IPA which makes it quite drinkable, especially considering the 7.2% ABV. At only 65 IBU, I could use a little more bitterness. Still, this is a solid brew and very tasty. Probably more accessible than most IPAs on the market these days. Cheers!
