3.6/5 rDev +5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a beer mug.
Appearance: Beer pours a clear but strong copper color. Medium level of carbonation visible through the glass, and the head (a thick, frothy off-white masterpiece) recedes slowly leaving pretty heavy lacing as it does so.
Smell: Slightly grassy with a touch of citrus zest. A sweet piney character, and maybe a little toffee thrown in for good measure.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Very oily going in, not a great deal of carbonation to work with. Hops are bitter first and foremost, and there's a touch of grapefruit sourness. An unpleasantly understated malt character. Aftertaste is sourness and the palate is mostly dry.
Overall: A very standard IPA with not much going for it past the look and smell.
Serving type: bottle

Overall a pretty good beer. Not my favorite ipa, but an nice variation from the west coast styles I've been drinking. Only drank from a can, so can't comment on appearance or smell much, but it tastes filling. Pretty bready, average flavors all around. What little crispness was there to begin with went away quickly as it warmed up and flattened. Would try again if it was offered, but probably wouldn't buy it.

Poured from a 12oz into my snifter glass. No date on bottle (BOO! I don't know why I broke my IPA rule), however, the store I bought from has good rotation so... whatever. Rolled the dice, and it was definitely fresh upon opening. Medium amber/coppery hue in the glass with a very light pure white head. Left some lacing in the glass. Aroma of grass (piney) and light citrus. The astringent, piney note from the aroma was very present in the mid-range of the taste (Centennial I would bet), with a decently balanced bitterness. Not much fruity aspect to the taste, slightly overpowered by the pine. Decent mouthfeel, a bit dry. Overall, this was more than I expected from Breckenridge (though I admittedly may have not enjoyed many of their fresh offerings)... might benefit from a bit of a heavier malt profile, but a nice choice for someone who especially enjoys the piney hops.
