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

Pretty quick rating while watching the msu game. Bought bomber at Southmoor Liquor and poured into a pint glass.

A&S: Lots of unfiltered pieces at the bottom of the bottle. Very hazy yellow colored beer. Head is pure white head with pretty good retention and specks of lacing. Tons of mango fruitiness (I don't I've ever smelt so much mango in a beer before). Other smells consist of grassy hops and pale malts.

T&M: Tastes more like a light pale to me. Not as much fruitiness as the smell would lead you to believe. The grassy/earthy hops are much more prevalent. Quite dry and clean in the finish.

Overall: Not bad, pretty interest and unique. I probably wouldn't buy it again, but I'm not upset about the purchase especially at the price (just above $4 for 22oz after taxes).

Good hoppy aromas, not too piny but floral and citrusy. Flavor was very much like a hoppy pils. The body was barely there with a hint of wheat and the hop presence had lots of nectar with spiciness. The appearance was even slightly hazy and very pale like a wheat. Good head retention and lacing. I don't know what to think of this beer. Is it an IPA or a Lager?

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

22oz bomber poured into a pint glass.

A: Golden hue with active carbonation, frothy head that sticks to the glass in big soapy patches.

S: Faint orange, lemon citrus scents with a hint of pine. Missing that full aroma I would expect and seems like an after thought.

T: Short burst of dank, piney flavor with relief from citrus hops that come on and break up the initial hop blast. Malt and biscuit sweetness are there in the end, but get a little lost in the shuffle.

M: Carbonation is bright and refreshing and counters the oily, resin bitterness of the hops. Slight drying effect, but the carbonation helps lighten. Overall, a light to medium bodied beer.

O: It's interesting where this beer excels - appearance, mouthfeel - but where it disappoints - smell. Taste is good, but nothing exciting.

I liked this better than the Imperial IPA from Epic.

Golden yellow, bright white head (1/4 inch or so) and lots of lacing. Very nice. Points off for residual yeast cloud in the bottle.

Hoppy aroma, it smells like a beer ought to! Pleasant to boot.

Piney hop front end ike the great west coast IPAs that I love. Fresh and not bitter. Astringent. The big front end flavor dissipates a little too quickly: I drank about half a glass before the aftertaste started sticking to my palate. Nothing unpleasant, just sort of a ghost bitterness that doesn't linger. A bit watery.

Mouthfeel was okay but nothing to get really excited about.

Overall, I enjoyed this thoroughly. Had that floral/pine hoppiness that I crave in abundance. Bonus points for the name! As a former Utahan and current Coloradan I found this to be most amusing!

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a film on top of the beer. A foamy lattice of lace coats the glass on the drink down. There are small chunks of sediment seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and earthy, slightly onion-like herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and slightly vegetal herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an interesting yet not detracting vegetal-like quality from the hop profile used in this one.

22 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy deep golden amber color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of pineapple, peach, mango, tangerine, lemon zest, orange zest, floral, grass, light pine, honey, bread, and floral earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good complexity of hop notes with moderate malt balance; and decent strength. Taste of pineapple, peach, mango, tangerine, lemon zest, orange zest, floral, grass, pine, honey, bread, and floral earthiness. Moderate amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, peach, mango, tangerine, citrus zest, floral, grass, pine, honey, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical hop flavors; with moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice IPA. Good complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
