Simply one of, if not the best IPA's out there. It fires on all cylinders, every time. This brew never fails to impress. An absolute must try. Doug O'dell can retire (die?) happy knowing he's the worlds leader in American Style IPAs. I just wish it was distributed to Florida!

Pours a clear and true red with little to no topping.

Smells uniquely oily and citrusy with a candy coating.

Upon the first taste you realize this is unapologeticaly a Colorado beer with its big, "meaty" hops, a perfect splash of citrus, and the right amount of sweetness.

Lies on the heavy side of medium in body, but smooth going down. I can feel this one on my stomach afterwards, so plan accordingly if you're pairing with food or going out for the night.

While this beer falls in line with the crowd just enough to play the game, it carefully avoids the fatal trap of replication, and comes out on top by doing so.

Poured a hazy pale yellow with a white head.

The smell is strong citrus hops, lemons and grapefruit.

The taste is much like the smell, citrus flavour and honey with some hoppy bitterness.

The mouth feel is creamy and medium bodied with a low amount of carbonation.

Overall the citrus flavours and smells are extremely strong but pleasant.

Dark golden orange with surprising large creamy head. Pour slowly. Smells strongly of citrusy hops. Fairly strong hop taste that lingers for quite a while. This is a standard IPA. Enjoyable, and I would go back to it, but nothing amazing. A solid effort.

One of the juiciest ipas i've ever had, so much flavor packed into a beer its outstanding, the aftertaste leaves you wanting a ridiculous amount more. I wish this was an everyday item in CT, thanks Tim for hooking me up with this one, as an extra none the less.

If you havent had it, seek it out and try it. If you have access to it, buy it, a lot of it!
