12 oz can. Pours clear reddish amber with a medium creamy off white head that goes to a thin film and laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet crystal malts with some piney fruity hops.

The flavor is sweet candy malts with some tropical fruit and piney resiny hops with medium bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation and a bit watery.

Overall, a nice IPA. It's a bit sweet for me, but I like the hop flavors.

Poured a hazy amber with a short white head and light lacing. It's a big tasty mess of an IPA and I like it. The nose is full of juicy citrus and mellow pine. A bit of toasty, almost cocoa, malt pops out in the flavor, but those classic American hops dominate the flavor. The bitterness is average for the style, as is the body. It's closer to a red ale than most IPAs, but no closer than Sierra Nevada's Celebration Ale. Overall, a solid beer. I like that there's a slight hint of roasted barley mixed in with the sweet grapefruit flavors. Check it out if you can.

Slight chill haze. Gold, leaning in the direction of amber, with soft billowy, persistent foam. Hops are like leaves of a Geranium. Comes across in aroma faintly and flavor strongly. Not my favorite, initially, but my distaste fades to neutral. I also pick up a slight metallic aroma. For an IPA, the flavor has more sweetness than I expect, although it is not unwelcome. The beer feels like soft kisses in the mouth, initially, but finishes a bit prickly. Nice juxtaposition. According to the Telluride website, the hops they use are all hops that I have enjoyed in my homebrewing, but here I found them off-putting, initially. Although I would prefer different hops, it's not a bad beer and it grew on me with time.
