22 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden copper with a big frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass. There's some big chunky floaties.

The aroma is biscuity malts with grassy, minty hops.

The flavor is sweet biscuity malts and some minty soapiness with a big grassy bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, it's got a lot of bitterness, but I don't like the hop flavor or the biscuit malt.

Pours a 2 finger yellowed head over a hazed light golden liquid. Smells green onion/wild garlic cheesy, lemony, dank piney, baby aspirin. Yuck, these hops sat on the bine too long at harvest and got nasty. If you are the brewer and don't understand this, drop me a note.

Tastes dank pine, dank onion garlic, bright lemony. Baby aspirin, orange, cheesy hop that will only worsen very quickly. Astringent hop sour and bitter. Supporting malt sweet is right if the beer had been well-made, but these hops blast over everything. I think some esters are present, but lost under the hop brutal. Astringent finish, medium in the mouth, medium carbonation. Overall, meh.

22oz bottle $3.49. Good thing this was cheap because this was one of the most boring IPA's I have had in recent memory. Standard orange appearance, looks just fine. Aroma is muted hops and just mediocre. Flavor is not hoppy at all just boring and mediocre malts. So middle of the road, why even bother? Please send this beer back to Utah and take Colorado out of the name, this does not represent our state well at all.
