poured into a mug

ill just skip to the goods:

this is my favorite IPA overall. just a fantastic blend of your typical IPA flavors, pine and citrus hops. smooth yet powerful enough to hang with some DIPAS. not as boozy as the 7% carries either. great nose, great pour with a big white fluffy head.

dollar for dollar there aint much better folks. everytime i make my way to minnesota i make SURE i take at least a 6 pack of this home with me.

this beer has become a staple for me. just flat out awesome!

A: A hazy yellow pour sit inside my Bell's Tulip. A lot more viscous than I was expecting. A very nicely sized creamy head boasts a very good retention, and coats the sides of my glass nicely.

S: Piney hops up front with mango and tropical fruits underneath. The fruits provide a big sweetness, but the bitter hops provide balance and create an enticing aroma.

T: The caramel aspect of the taste is much more formidable than on the smell. Bitter, piney hops and some citrus provide a nice balance. A bit on the bitter end, but certainly not bad at all.

MF: Medium to heavy body for an IPA, carbonated very well. I was surprised by the thickness of this on the palate. Bitter and dry finish, the beer has a pretty good drinkability.

O: Nothing wrong with this. Nice balance between bitter and sweet hops. Nothing really stood out, but I wouldn't turn it down again. West Coast IPA all the way.

A: slightly hazy golden straw with a nice finger of fluffy white head. Tons of very fine lacing and good head retention.

S: Nice pine and floral hop notes. Citrus and tropical fruit notes. great aroma!

T: A nie sweet citrus on the front side which is pushed to the side right away by a nice bitter pine hop. Ends really smooth with very little bitter after taste.

M: Medium carbonation and medium body. Nice sweet bitter hoppy taste with a resin almost sticky mouthfeel.

O: Extremely well balanced beer. Really like this beer although it may not be as bitter as many IPAs this is a great beer. Nice piney hops!

Loved this IPA.

It poured a light honey amber with abundant head that had good retention. Floral hops eviscerated my nose and mouth in a way that only bold West-Coast hopping can. Thick mouthfeel kept the hops there a long, long time. And while I'm sure there's malt in here to balance the flavor, I couldn't taste it.

One of the most pleasant aspects of this beer is the finish. It leaves that hop bitterness in the back of your throat, but it still finishes smooth with a bit a fruity sweetness. The beer's truly bittersweet.

In terms of Fort Collins IPAs, this one gives Ranger a run for it's money. It's bold, and I liked it for completely different reasons (see the last paragraph). For the money, an incredibly flavorful, drinkable IPA.
