BEST FROM BRECKINRIDGE. I'm excited to finally be able to "rave" about this Co. Brewer.

A : Dark copper a bit of haze and very good, tight head formation, retention, and light lacing.
S: Intense - Massively hopped, on the orange rind, candied marmalade spectrum with pine, moist pine floor, earth.
T: Follows the smell, but fresh and orange-liquor like - a serious IPA. Citrus rinds render a sharp, bright start that arcs into pine floor and sun baked grass dryness. Interesting balance of wet pine floor and open meadow. Lots of resin. Lots of complexity.
F: Lovely, caressing feel and finish. Hides ABV well.

This is the best beer from brewer and a very fine DIPA. Must try! Esp if you like fresh orange/pine/complex ipas with dense richness.
