Had this poured into a pint glass. Color was an orangish copper, completely clear. The taste had slight hops and slight citrus, but very mild. Not a ton of head, little lacing. Fairly mediocre.

16oz glass at Aviator's lounge in DIA, Broncos are ahead by a TD or so.

This beer appears a clear, medium bronzed amber colour, with a thin cap of wispy, and ethereal off-white head, which leaves some random specks of islet lace around the glass as things slowly drop away.

It smells of orange and red grapefruit flesh, a stoney flintiness, bready, crackery caramel malt, a bit of lemon polish, and leafy, weedy hops. The taste is acrid pine needle, orange and lemon rind, crackery, grainy caramel malt, and leafy somewhat grassy hops - simple!

The bubbles are quite tight, and perhaps a tad frothy, the body a solid medium weight, with the hops and carbonation interfering with any latent smoothness. It finishes just off-dry, the caramel malt showing off its legs, alongside some consistently bitter and lingering hops.

A decent IPA, one on the bitter side of hoppy, and the hoppy side of balanced. Its drying tendencies could make for multiple rounds, were I so inclined.
