12oz. longneck into pint glass.
A: medium amber with a rocky white head. Head fades to thick lace that leaves residue on the glass.
S: Pine, resin, grapefruit, caramel/brown sugar *way* in the background.
T/M: Herbal and resiny up front, with biting carbonation. Sweet, caramel malt in the middle, and a slightly bitter finish. Comes out with a nice hop/malt balance in the end, with a moderately full mouthfeel.
Overall: It could be that I have an old bottle and the hop presence is more subdued than when it's fresh, but the balance is really quite pleasant and not unlike some versions of an IPA.
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.
