4.42/5  rDev +10.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

16oz draft pour.

A: Ruby / orange color that is cloudy. Low carbonation and thin, soapy head with slight lacing.

S: Sticky, resinous pine and grapefruit.

T: Dank, earthy, grassy, leathery dryness and bitterness. Then slight grapefruit, pineapple, caramel and biscuit sweetness. Enough relief provided from malt and citrus that taste is not too bitter.

M: Creamy with some bite, more bitter finish, and warm on the throat.

O: Great flavor and scents. Impressed with mouthfeel as it manages to have bitter bite but it doesn't kill your tastebuds like many double ipas.

On tap at Linger and served in a snifter $7. Orange color and a filmy head. Aroma was quite nice, lots of sticky fruits, sort of raised my hopes. The flavor was a total let down, it was like dirty water with a hop cone somewhere at the bottom. I asked a friends opinion before I shared mine and the response was "it could be a lot cleaner". Yep, taste muddled, muddy, and dirty.

not up to the level of some of the other telluride brews i dont think, but its well made. honey colored with a redder tint, and a bold white head with fine lacing as it sips. a nose of west coast hops, and a curious minerality that makes it rather heavy. more sweet than bitter on the hop nose, but there is enough bitterness in the flavor for me. tropical fruits, orange melon, zesty pine, and lots of dense toffee grain. i am full after one, but i can get through about three before i am maxed out. a nice compliment to a burger or a pizza or some other quick and drity blue collar food, but not distinct from all the other really solid big india pale ales on the colorado market, i like the funky fish edition best, done with belgian yeast. it cleans up the residual sugar a little better and gives it a vibrant carbonation. this one is tasty but a little much for me.
