I am a huge fan of Breckenridge Brewery, but this brew is a bit disappointing. I don't have a glass available, so I can't do a full review, but ..

The bitterness and hoppiness overwhelms the beer a bit. I LOVE good hops and bitter beer, I should add, but there this beer lacks balance. It's not terrible. It does have a citrus flavor to it that is nice, but more would be better.

Also, I've read other reviews. I wonder if this beer lacks consistency? Some mention how little hops they taste while others mentions how over the top the hops is with this beer. I realize people enjoy a plethora of tasting preferences, but this one seems to enjoy a vastly disparate set of reviews.

Anyway, it's a 3.25. I enjoyed the beer -- and it has a dryness that makes me want another beer. I actually like that part of this beer quite a bit. I like the beer, but I don't love it.

A little more balance and this beer immediately moves from 3.25 to 4.5, imho.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 oz.

Pours a hazy amber orange, fine off-white head retains indefinitely as a film.

Smells of citrusy hops and orange blossom honey. Some bready malts.

Tastes of vegetal hops and mild biscuit malt. Kind of bland. Dry hop finish.

Medium body with tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A very pretty beer with a decent aroma and body is marred by subpar flavor. It's not terrible, but certainly inferior to any number of other IPAs. Ultimately would have to pass on this one in the future.
