Pretty good IPA. The Mosaic hops provide an array of flavor experiences, though none of them are that intense. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a hint of orange. Big white head with good retention and several bands of lacing on the pint glass.

Aroma is citrus and tropical fruit. Taste is more of the same, mangos, tangerines, lemon zest but there is also a vegetal quality that others picked up as well. When I first noticed it, I thought there was some Summit hops going on here. Thankfully, it was just a transitory flavor. Summit hops ruin a beer for me. I would like stronger flavor and more intense bitterness, but the variety of flavors were enjoyable.

Mouthfeel is a bit light but still somewhat crisp and refreshing. THe bitterness could be stronger but overall a very pleasant sensation.

I would drink this one again.

I'm deferring to LiquidAmber's review about 5 posts below this. That review nailed my review but I apparently enjoyed more.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a light to medium coppery amber with a half finger white head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of bready, slightly caramel malt, grassy and citrus hops. Flavor is dominated by grassy hops with light citrus and a little bready/biscuit malt. Medium bodied. A nice low key American IPA with an good hop flavor from the mosaic hops and a pleasant malt body that isn't that apparent at first, but caramel and biscuit flavors are revealed as it warms. Light for an IPA, seems to lean towards APA territory. Pleasant but nothing really stands out here. From the name, I was hoping it was a reference to availability of more "herbal" dank flavors in Colorado, but guess it was more literally they moved shop to Colorado.
