On tap, man had her.
Perhaps my rating of this beer is not fair, as I have made it clear before I am not a hophead, I enjoy well hop beer, but I do not drink beer for the sake of having the bitters. I can possibly stand. And like some of the Breckenridge beers this beer falls distinctly into that category it is over hop harsh and rough

Appearance - 4.25/5
Pours a beautiful deep orange. About 1/2 finger of head. Fairly clear. CAn see an average amount of carbonation rising at average rate. If you look close, you can see the whole beverage is filled with extremely small particles (like how when bright light shines through a window, you can see all the dust floating around in the air).

Smell - 3.5/5
Slightly floral pine hops, with a bit of citrus. Maybe a hint of malt smell, hard to tell. Smell is not super strong

Taste - 3.75/5
Dominant flavor is the floral pine hops, maybe slightly resinous as well, some hints of dark malt flavor. Slight citrus notes. Overall the beer is slighty sweet. The IPA seems fairly well balanced, and the pine hops are not overpowering. But the flavor is nothing special.

Mouthfeel - 3.5/5
Medium bodied, quite smooth, perhaps a little creamy. There is a medium level of carbonation.

Overall - 3.5/5
This beer was not a bad IPA, in fact it was fairly enjoyable. But it's nothing special.
