From notes.

12oz bottle purchased at Pilgrim's in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. According to the label it was either brewed on or best by 9/20/13. I know I purchased it after that date, so I think it was a brewed on date.

Poured a semi-clear orangey amber color, with a big, sudsy white head that left lots of lace on the sides of my glass.

The nose was of citrusy and piney hops.

The taste was more piney and more bitter than the nose led me to believe it would be, and is more balanced. There's just enough maltiness to provide a nice backbone.

Medium bodied, with an oily, prickly mouthfeel.

A very tasty example of a west coast IPA, despite it's Colorado origins. Some might consider that the west coast, but not me. Regardless of it's origin, I'd drink it again.
