3.95/5  rDev +15.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a hazy amber color with an inch or so of foam on top; decent retention and lacing

Smell: A wallop of caramel malt with a fruity aspect; some leafy hops in the back

Taste: Fruity and malty, up front, with equal parts stone fruit and caramel; the leafy hops hit in the middle, bringing a rather complex range of American citrus and earhty English flavors; nice balance in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with low to moderate carbonation; a little flabby

Overall: Call this an Americanized ESB and I am very happy with this beer; as an American IPA it is very middle of the road

A: This IPA has bright orange color with a 2 finger soapy head, also has a hint of amber. Head dissipates dramatically, but leaves some nice lacing.

S: Aroma is of citrus hops with some pine resin. Also has a hint of honey and some sweet malts.

T: Nice bitterness upfront, some tangy orange and pine in the initial flavor with a grapefruit aftertaste. Some spice and earthy type hops present as well.

M: Very medium bodied for an IPA, very drinkable. Get all of the flavors without it being over the top.

O: I've had quite a few IPA's and this is the way the style should be. Not to mild, not too bitter. Definite balance in flavors for this beer makes it another hit for the Colorado Brewing Company!

A nice refreshing IPA that is crisp, citrusy, and more restrained on its hopiness. Upon pouring into a pint glass the color was a nice amber hue with a very thin head which quickly dissipated into the crisp looking beer. The aroma was nice, citrus and mellow malt; it produced a heady feeling- like grapefruit aromatherapy. The citrus is first tasted than a slight bitterness from the hopps which is followed by an almost earthy aftertaste. Overall a nice ipa. Its not a rockstar of a beer but factoring the taste- price ratio this beer definitely has a place in our craft your own six pack rotation.
