BEER INFO

Notes / Commercial Description:
This beer is defined by its pronounced hop bitterness, flavor and aroma. It has a solid malt backbone that works with the citrusy American hops. The hop bouquet resonates like flavors of tangerine and ruby red grapefruit. The mouth feel is crisp and dry leaving a balance of bitterness and rich malt on the palate. It is golden honey in color.

7.2% ABV, 70 IBU, Hops: Chinook, Columbus, Cascade, Summit, Eldorado, Amarillo

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.

12 oz can. Pours hazy dark golden orange with a medium creamy white head that goes to a thin film and laces the glass.

The aroma is lots of grapefruit and green piney hops with some bready crystal malt in the background.

The flavor is sweet crystal malts with lots of grapefruit and citrus followed by a fairly big resiny dank hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a very nice IPA with sweet fruity notes and nice hop bitterness.

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!
