3.85/5 rDev 0%
On tap, poured into a pint glass.
Appearance - gold with lame carbonation. Thin white head leaves surprisingly sticky lacing.
Smell - I get more citrus and pine in the hops and a hint of sour dough in the malt.
Taste - a little more one sided with the hops overpowering a bit, though I'm not complaining!
Feel - an initial lingering of unattractive bitterness on the tongue that quickly transitions into a refreshing and fairly balanced finish.
Overall - a pretty tasty brew actually, one that I had low expectations delivered a very nice surprise!

16oz Pour from the source in Boulder, CO
A – Pours a nice crystal clear orange, head is straw colored and not too tall. Lacing left behind is consistent and adequate. Very nice.
S – Strong citrus notes, very very fresh, balancing malt notes come through.
T – Very clean and refreshing, pine notes come out here, and a little bit of tropical fruit tones as well. No one flavor dominates the rest, the balance is nice here.
M – Carbonation levels are near perfect, if anything it is approaching the high side, making this a very drinkable and approachable brew.
O – Better than I anticipated, this is a very solid IPA, it wouldn't make sense to bottle this, but it is a nice option to have at the brewery, very solid offering.

Really quite delicious... this beer poured at Fate's taproom was golden in color and not the least bit clouded.
I wasn't expecting much from it, as Fate is not one of the better known Boulder breweries. However, this beer surpassed expectations. There isn't an overpowering aroma, but upon the first sip the hops that are hiding from the smell spring forward onto one's palate. A steady stream of Pacific Northwest hops (6 varieties!) assault the senes. A strong taste of red grapefruit pours forward, and the more one drinks of this the stronger the tropical fruit flavors come through.
The beer is remarkably drinkable.. fans of Firestone's Union Jack would be very appreciative of this beer. Even with a strong 7.2% ABV the beer goes down like water. Recommendable to anyone near Boulder... and a growler of it is an excellent idea!

On tap at the brewery in Boulder, I ordered a 10oz and I think I paid $3. Orange color, soapy head, looks fine though served in a very odd glass. Aroma was hops butour the muddled fruity kind, no specific fruits like citrus or berries. Flavor was disappointing at first but I think it was too cold. As it warmed the fruit aspect was nice, malts were good and the bitterness level worked. A decent beer even though it's not really up my alley when it comes to IPA.
