Solid DIPA. Reminds me of other hop-heavy Colorado brews like Odell Myrecenary or something from Great Divide.

This was not at all what I expected when I opened the bottle. It was a pleasant surprise. Great blend of malts and hops. Lots of sweetness that was very well balanced by bitterness from the hops. I will definitely keep an eye out for this in the future.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped 07528B15. Sampled on June 1, 2015

Amber, heady pour with a haze.

The aroma is of roasted caramel, floral, citrus, and cantaloupe.

Medium to heavy body.

Roasted malts briefly and then overcome by bitter hops. Very easy drinking for 9.2%

Not as advertised this is more of a brown ale.

Cloyingly sweet and tasted like neither an IPA nor bourbon.

Great balance of malts and hops. Like Dogfish 90 IPA. Creamy taste. This one's a sleeper in my opinion....should be rated higher. Nice job Breckenridge!

Picked this one up from a hitchiker. A bit too sweet and strong for me to have more than one but I enjoyed it.

12-oz bottle into Belgian ale glass

A - 3 fingers khaki head over a cloudy body of deep orange amber, very nice web of lace

S - citrus and floral, lots of malt; very pleasant

T - nice malt flavor with a touch of caramel sweetness, citrus and floral hops, notes of grass and spice, somewhat buttery

M - smooth, thick full body; highly carbonated; pretty dry

O - On the malty side, but a very nice brew nonetheless. Delightfully thick and smooth.

Interesting DIPA, not overly hopped hint of floral and citrus. For a 9.2% not to heavy on alcohol taste. Overall a good but not great DIPA, would definitely only have 1 at a sitting.

12oz bottle in a tall pint glass. Well with in its freshness window.

A- Brilliant and clear amber color with a huge off-white billowy head. Spider web lacing.

S- A little boozy. Some citrus hop.

T- Malty and under-hopped.

M- Full body and feel. The hops finally show up in the finish, dry and biting.

O- Ipa flavors and aromas came up short here.

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.

Solid IPA

Tastes similar to DFH 90.

A grainy, herbal, spicy nose.
Pours a slightly chill hazed amber under a 2” off-white rocky foam cap – very lacy.
Palate: Big malt flavors joined by light fruit (orange and melon) seasoned with spicy rich hops and rich dry hopped flavors and aromas. Some lingering malt sweetness but nicely balanced by the hop bitterness and light alcohol flavors.
A rich, creamy texture supports a medium plus body and very fine soft carbonation.

The first beer that i picked up in Denver. The taste left an lasting impression.

Pours a nice hazy brown. Great double IPA. Great smell. Almost orange with some pine. Taste backs up the smell. The bitterness is nice and not too much. Smooth all the way through. Alcohol is hidden very well in this beer. Didn't realize it was 9.2% until I got up after my second pint.


Wife's Review: "No thank you".

Lots of good beer coming out of Colorado. Excellent DIPA. Hoppy and best served on draft.
