Dark, golden amber in color. Bubbly, one finger off-white head settles out quickly. Very faint collar provides some occasional spots of lace.

Pine residue dominates. Sweet, juicy citrus notes make their way through as the brew warms a little. Hints at peach and mango.

Not overly sweet, but a decent malt base. Resinous, but again some tropical notes fight their way through. Fairly balanced. Good amount of carbonation in this medium-bodied beer. No overpowering, or long lingering aftertaste.

Pretty straight forward IPA. Surprised at the almost 8% ABV, as it drinks quite easily. First canned offering from the brewery, so I'll be interested to see where they go from here.

Had in a becker pint. Cool looking can! Reviewed from notes.

The finger's worth of white foam dies rather quickly, leaving behind very little lace. Good looking copper-gold body, though.

The hops on the nose beat out the bready malt, just barely:herbal, soapy, and piney.

More of the herbal quality on the palate to lead things off with that bready base. There is also a muddled grassiness on the palate that leads into the finish. There is more pine on the finish with that distinct herbalness.

Pike's Peak has a decent medium body that is more creamy than watery. Also finishes just a little dry. This is no bitter hop bomb. Appropriate for the flavor profiles though.

This IPA has great flavor, not an extreme flavored IPA, not even close. Easy to drink, and tastes pretty good. Nothing wrong with that.

Ingredient note: per the can, this per contains wheat.

Bold, copper-colored body topped with a rich, creamy head; sheets of clinging foam on the glass. Pine and citrus hop aroma with a touch of caramel malt scent. Good malt grain flavors beneath a strong but not overbearing hop bitterness. Medium bodied; clean, dry finish.

A good IPA but nothing exceptional. Definitely highlights hop bitterness and has great looks to go with its easy drinking character.
