3.84/5  rDev -5.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Hotel glass (half pint, half snifter)
From: Wilbur’s Total Beverage in Fort Collins, Colo.
Price: Part of a variety 6-pack for $9.99
Purchased: May 2, 2013
Consumed: May 3, 2013
Misc.: Best by Aug. 14, 2013

Poured a caramel orange amber color with two fingers of khaki white head. Lots of bubbles on the side and coming up from the bottom. Good uneven lacing on the sides. Average-to-below average retention on the top all the way down.

Smelled awesome floral hops right from the get-go. Also some citrus notes - tangerine, orange peel, grapefruit and lemon. Nice and flavorful.

First taste reminded me of the Odell IPA that I tried the night before, just not as strong. So that also means that it reminded me of Manzanita IPA and the Chaotic. Floral hops, more bitter than the smell. Could taste the alcohol for sure. Lemon grass and orange peel as well. Some butter notes.

Light-to-medium body. Creamy texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Slightly bitter finish.

A pretty good pale ale. If you try the Odell IPA, you’re almost trying the same thing. But that is not a bad thing. Good beer.

4.25/5  rDev +4.2%

Pours out a pale copper with a thin white head. Hops smell strongly of citrus and tropical fruit. A bit of guava. Tastes of bready malt sweetness and loads of fruity hops. The fruitiness goes well with the sweetness. Mouthfeel is rather full, with a lightly prickly carbonation. This is delicious.

4.11/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a pale and slightly hazed copper color. A fluffy and rocky two finger white head forms with good retention. That recedes to leave plenty of lace in rings.
S: Perfume like hops up front. Floral and grassy. Though with a bit more resinous pine. Which is never over barring. Biscuit malts with a little sweeter caramel malts as well.
T: Like the nose, floral and grassy up front. That gives way to the pine like bitterness, which again is not over barring. A bit soapy like as well. A tad more caramel malt sweetness here than the nose.
M/D: A medium body that is crisp and effervescent. Again, just a tad on the sweet side. Really enjoyable to drink. I can drink this all day.

A really good pale ale. This is Loose Leaf's bigger brother. It is a bit sweeter, with a more pronounced piny/soapy flavor, which is not a bad thing at all. I do think I like Loose Leaf just a bit more. Though this is no less of an enjoyable beer.

3.65/5  rDev -10.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 oz. bottle poured into nonic

L: pale gold ... yellow ... not much of a head, white, does stick

S: citrus, a bit bitter (grapefruit-like) with some skunk -- the bottle isn't clear, but there's clearly some skunk in this

T: citrusy, a bit sweet ... not quite a candied orange but in that direction; a ton of grain for an American IPA ... still bitter with some grapefruit. it leans all on the citrus side.

F: solid, not remarkable, plenty of carbonation despite a pretty flat pour

O: a good beer but not one of a kind -- it's got good citrus notes, and the bitter bite is there but very manageable. tastes good, and I'd have no problem drinking this all the time, but I can name 20 other American IPAs just as good or better
