Pours a nice amber color, just a bit cloudy. Smooth, medium body. Somewhat malty/sweet. Tastes very medium hoppy, not overwhelming, very balanced. Finishes just a teeny bit rough - wonder if it is because my bottle was a bit old. Overall though, a very solid IPA.

Had this out in Denver, before a playoff game. Pretty solid ipa maybe a bit overbalanced on the sweet side.

Unique bottle label data: none noted

Brilliant, crystal clear, deep gold colored body with a dense, rocky, white head. Solid wall of pine and citrus aroma. Warm, mildly caramel malt flavors quickly give way to a massive hop bitterness. Medium bodied, leaning towards the heavy side of things; residual sugars but with a very dry character.

A well-balanced, gently sweet but with a kicking bolt of hop bitterness throughout.
