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

A- Deep pumpkin orange with light, light auburn hue when held to the light. Soft, small white head that disappears rather quickly. Spider web builds on the top of the beer, light lacing on the glass. The head was uninspiring, but the color is magnificent.

S- The name describes the aroma, DANK. Light floral notes with some bright citrus. Big old pine notes dominate the hop aroma. There is just the slightest touch of some sweet malt in there. Pretty good, reminds me of the aroma from Odell IPA.

T- The taste is good. Piney hops jump off first followed by some light grapefruit. Maybe a little caramel in the back end. Smal lingering hop flavor. The flavor comes up a little short of the aroma, but not bad. No booze detectable. Not much bitterness.

M- Light, crisp, and higher in carbonation. Lighter in body. Carbonation opens up the hop aroma but almost makes this beer a little to "bubbly".

O- This is a good IPA. To be honest, this is better than i expected, not sure why. The bitterness is a little low for an IPA and it might be a little over carbonated, but the "dank" character is fitting and makes for a delicious hop-centric brew.

16 oz can. Pours a slightly hazy light copper amber with a smallish off-white head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet caramel / crystal malts with fruity, piney hops.

The flavor is sweet caramel / crystal malts with sugary fruits and a big bitter resiny, almost charred, hop finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with low carbonation and is a bit watery.

Overall, it's not well blended - very sweet, extract-like with a big bitter finish.

Deep copper color with a half inch of off frothy white. Heavy lacing. Aroma is of pungent piney hops and freshly mown grass. I taste deep, dank piney hops and yet there's light malt to keep things in check. The mouth is sticky and chewy.

On tap at Beau's in Black Forest, CO. Clear Copper/Amber color, nice one inch head, great retention and lacing. Aroma was very piney, with a bit of fruitiness and sweet malt. The taste was pretty close to the smell, with just a bit of citrus added in. The mouthfeel was medium bodied, with good carbonation. Hadn't had this one before, was pleasantly surprised.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Look: Two and a half fingers of creamy almost pinkish head dissipates slowly to about a half finger ring around the glass. Bubbly lacing. Clear copper in color. Light carbonation.

Smell: Caramel malt backbone. Pretty resinous. A little citrus, not quite grapefruit.

Taste: Malt forward. Caramel and some bread. Hops are a little understated and piney. This is far more malt dominant. Reminds me more of an English IPA.

Feel: Oily. Lightly carbonated. Half-dry finish.

Overall: I really like English style IPA's so I'm a bit of a sucker. It probably gets a slightly higher score if it gets categorized as such. Not very balanced and is marketed as a "Dank" earthy resinous IPA and that falls a little flat. Worth a shot especially if you enjoy English IPAs

Poured on tap into a stemless like wine glass at Prost brewing company, from notes of Jan 2013. Originally entered under Prost brewing.

A real brown ruby gorgeous amber body color. Faint tan colored head with a creamy top presented with about a finger of head. Lacing coats in rings all over. This looks like a real jewel.

Nose is full of dank earthy tones. Bready malt escapes between the hop front quite a bit nicely.

Palate is rich in caramel and hop juice earth. Super chewy malts and green hops. Finishes with light caramel sweetness and balanced hop action. Earthy pine just whsipers on the breath when finishing.

Overall reminds me of a good balanced Deviant Dale's Ale. Delicious stuff.

Bought at Trader Joes in a 4-pack for New Years Eve, I saved one to rate.

Very lively transparent (but clouds when the final bit goes in) yellow orange colored beer. Fizzy foamy white head pours about two fingers and leaves good lacing as it resides a bit. Good balance between citrus hops and malts.

Citrus centered hop profile. With some citrus forward IPA you don't always get that bitter punch at the end, but this one is just fine in that category. Medium body and on the low side of medium carbonation.

Overall: I really like this beer. A great example of a well balanced, delicious IPA. Will most likely purchase again. One of my favorite Colorado IPAs.

Poured from the can into a Chimay goblet.

The beer pours a darker amber than your average IPA. It is just a bit cloudy and doesn't have quite enough head. The hop profile is intense with a bitterness that is a bit heavy. I'm getting some pine and citrus peel, but the finish is just bitter. There is some malt in the background, but it is overshadowed by the hop bitterness. This isn't overly impressive, but it's a pretty good beer.
