Poured into a pint glass. A nice two fingers of head on top of a clear copper colored ale.

Bright citrus smell; lemon and pine.

Neutral taste at first, moved to moderate bitterness, ends with a touch of sweetness from the malt.

Crisp, medium body with low carbonation.

I like it. A solid IPA.

Great beer in a pint can for $3 @ Argonant on H street in DC! The best ipa deal in the city! IBU 70 & 6.5 etoh. One of my fav beers to driink a lot of. The can is even cute...it reads "we're hoppy" and "you're happy" on each side of the can where the drink hole is.

Bottle poured into a nonic pint glass. Pours a super clear yellow orange. An inch of foamy white head shrinks to cover the top with decent lacing. Aroma is citrus, and mild tropical fruit. Flavor is mild pine, grapefruit, and has a refreshing citrus quality. A somewhat bready malt blends it well. Mouthfeel is thin and a bit sticky. This is a good every day ipa that would be a nice lawn mower beer.

On tap at the brewery...and the Denver airport, and pretty much everywhere I went in Colorado. A solid IPA. Layered and complex hop flavors. Pine, orange, lime, and thyme. Clean, dry malt, a bit of candy-like sweetness. Perhaps slightly undervalued by the beer community since it's not exploding with hops, but it's extremely well crafted, balanced, and flavorful.
