Enjoyed on tap at Eddyline in BV after a failed attempt at Mt. Harvard and Columbia. As a sidenote, the food there is really very good too.

A: Pours a clear copper with minimal bubbling. One-finger off white head subsides over 2-3 mins and leaves behind a sparse lacing.

S: Sweet and bready malts hit first, followed by a smooth grapefruit citrus throughout. Nice and balanced, but a tad weak and lacking in complexity.

T: Hits the palata with a strong citrus. Bready malts follow shortly thereafter. Finishes with the citrus, but with hardly any lingering bitterness. Alcohol is exceptionally well-hidden, especially for something with an ABV this high. Not a heck of a lot of character, however.

M: Smooth and slightly syrupy, but cut with just the right amount of carbonation. No alcohol sensation.

O: Solid, well balanced IPA. Could stand for a slightly fresher malt or perhaps a little more hop character outside of the powerfully-citrus taste. For a place in bumblef&^% Colorado, very, very solid.

Pours A One To Two Finger Head,Crisp Golden Amber Color.

Smell Is A Hoppy Pine(Cascade)With A Very Clean Malt Profile. Very Natural. Hops Become More Prevelent As Warms.

Taste Up Front Is A Mellow Malt, With A Medium Hop Flavor On The Back Of The Tounge In The Finish.A Twinge Of Alcohol As Warms.

A Medium Bodied Beer That Pairs With The Style Very Well.

Overall This Is A Very Good Strong Pale Ale, As Opposed A True IPA.

3.5/5  rDev -0.6%

Pour - dark amber color with a soft appearance and a loose rather foamy head that clings tightly to the glass. Darker than some other IPAs but certainly just as appealing.

Aroma - orange, caramel, honey, brown sugar, some light floral hop notes. Faint hints of pine and fresh cut grass. The aroma comes and goes. I'd love to get a lot more of that fresh hop smell and as this warms a bit it does come out but you may need to be patient.

Taste - oranges and lemons with some flavors that come aross as apricot and peaches. Plenty of malty, caramel flavors without any sort of hop astringency. Not a super hoppy or bitter IPA with a lot more going on with the malt side of things. Perhaps the honey that this is brewed with plays a part in all of this?

Overall - an IPA that may come across as more on the malty side than being overly bitter and super hoppy. Not a bad brew by any means but it can come across more like a strong amber ale with a solid hop profile. Some floral and citrus flavors are there and as it warms there is a bit of spiciness from the hops.
