The quintessential Colorado IPA! The hop character is probably the best I've ever experienced from a single IPA, but manages to just hold onto enough balance to make the beer thoroughly drinkable. One caveat: I never like it as well in the bottle. That magical whole flower hop character just doesn't seem to survive the bottling process.

Serving type: on-tap

Bottle at Pub 17 (the hotel bar in the Grand Hyatt on Welton in Denver) poured into a pint glass. Pours orange colored with a creamy white head on top. Aroma of grapefruits, big pine notes, bready malts. Flavor follows closely with a huge bitter pine bite that is very drying on the finish. Despite the bitter, there is a definite malt presence here and it is certainly not what I’d call a west coast IPA. Medium bodied, on the dryer side, with medium plus carbonation. Good brew, but not sure it met my expectations.

Beautiful white foam head floats above a separation of slightly hazy, orange and yellow body.
Nose: orange and grapefruit rinds, a fruity bouquet of hop goodness, with sweet bread in the background.
Taste: the hops impart flavor throughout, from the citrus rind with a bready zest, to tropical flavors as it warms a bit. Yes the pint is emptying quickly.
Mouthfeel: creamy, smooth, medium carbonated. Bitterness and hop dankness feels juicy and extremely well balanced. Ends perfectly.
This to me is a perfect example of an IPA. Probably not my favorite, but among the best I've ever tasted. Grain and hop balance are spot on for highly drinkable smoothness. My first try from this brewery, which is new to the TX market. It's reputation holds up well (as do most in the brewscape).

Here is where Beer Advocate is your friend. I was in a hurry in Texas awaiting to go back to Boston, and I wanted to get a great beer not sold in the NE. Searched SPECS and found this beer and was impressed with the 100 from the brothers. So clearly I bought it and will need to give it the same score

I am sitting alone in my poorly lit living room, so the beer once again looks a copper color. In the dark, everything either looks dark or copper to me. I accidentally drink many things. This also had some moderate lacing and looks great. Of course a hoppy smell, but also a great deal of fruit....grapefruit I suppose. Anyways, took a sip and it is a big hoppy blast. This was just a perfect amount of bitterness and zest - a great beer. I do think it has a slightly odd after taste - can't put my finger on it, but I still like it.

Nice carbonation and a pleasant beer on an oddly very hot day in Boston. I could have more, but alas, I am lazy and don't feel like walking to the fridge.
