From a diconic,
Very nice foamy, pillowy head; loads o' lacing. Typical deep amber
color for an AIPA.
Very potent nose with plenty of hops but much more malt
smell than almost any AIPA that I have had. It's a complex of
aromas hence I gave it a higher than average score there.
The foretaste is kind of citrusy(?) but rapidly followed with those buckets of malt then a bitterness at the back of the tongue.
The feel is just average, not notable.
Very worthy beer and more complex than most AIPAs. If you
are looking for fresh hops to dominate, this is not the AIPA for
you. But, if you like maltiness with a good portion of bitter, then
definitely check this out.

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.
