Notes/Commercial Description:
Perhaps even more floral than the Wyoming State Flower it is named for, this copper colored ale imparts herbal, and citrus flavors, while maintaining the intense hop attributes of bitterness, flavor, and aroma that need be present in all great IPA’s. Widely recognized as the barometer for many beer enthusiasts, tell us what you think of our IPA.

A: Copper color with a third of an inch of head. It receded pretty quickly, but left enough foam for some decent lacing.

S: Grassy hop aromas with a biscuity, malty backbone.

T: Pretty solid. Nothing crazy about this IPA, but it is well made. Caramel comes through to provide a nice backdrop for the piney, grassy and grapefruity hop flavors.

M: A little on the sweet side, but a drier finish saves this one from going too far. It's a little creamier than most IPA with only a light tickle.

O: Rolling through Sheridan, Wyoming for lunch I wasn't expecting much in terms of good beer. So this was a nice surprise. Would drink again.

very generic ipa recipe here. it is a well enough made beer, but no effort has been taken at all to make this special. light clear copper color with an average white head. it smells like a slight overdose of malt for the style, but the hops come through just fine. my issue here is that we have nothing interesting in the grain bill, hop varietals, or brewing techniques. its a standard bar room ipa, nothing special at all. that said the taste is pretty solid all things considered, the grain gives it enough sweetness and body, i like the use of something a little sturdy here, and the hops come through well, mostly bitter, but a touch of pine in there too. a good all season ipa. its a bit boring though for me, and with so many other good ipas around, its hard to stand out without a unique twist. for sheridan wyoming though, it exceeded my expectations. what a neat little brew pub this is! perhaps the least impressive of their offerings this one.

Appearance: cloudy orange, medium head, and good lacing.

This is a nice IPA. It is smooth and very flavorful.

thanks to dan and ratman for this one. Growler poured a hazy golden amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of crackers, tropical fruit, orange zest, grapefruit and light earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smoothg with a dry finish. Flavors of crackers, earthiness and light citrus with a smooth dry moderatly bitter finish.

Had at the Lander Brewfest.

It poured a cloudy orange with a small head of foam, decent lacing.

The smell had bitter notes of grapefruit and pine

The taste was of grapefruit and pine but very lightly done. My palate was begging for more after the first couple of sips but no more showed up. Also, I didn't notice much going on with the malt either.

This is not an IPA that will satisfy most IPA drinkers. Not worthy of a retry.
