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.

16oz can $2.99. I might as well not even drink IPA's that ain't from Cali because they ain't shit. This is no exception. If it ain't west coast it ain't shit. Amber color, good lace, looks fine. Aroma is malty. Malty! Slightest hint of hops among all that malt sugar, fuck. Flavor is this malty sweet bullshit with accompanying hops, not dry at all. I'm moving to San Diego, it's West Coast or die as far as IPA is concerned.
