12oz bottle, $1.99. Apparently this was bottled two weeks ago so that's good. Orange color, decent head. Aroma is muted piney hops. Flavor is bitter, malty, not bad but it's going to take more than this to stand out on the shelves here in CO.

Serving: Bottle into pint
Served: 20 August 2014

Appearance: Pours a very traditional amber color with a one finger off-white, foamy head. Looks like a traditional IPA would, without much too it. 3.75/5

Smell: Lots of dank, citrus and floral hops in the nose. Slight malt sweetness, but not much more too it. 3.5/5

Taste: Nice flavor with good contrast between the malts and the hops. This is definitely on the malty side for an IPA, which I like seeing. The hops add a lot of flavor and character to the beer but are decidedly not the only role. Malts add some slight caramelly notes to the beer, which make it taste and feel bigger than it actually is. 4/5

Mouthfeel: Decent carbonation, but seemed to fall flat too early, giving it an almost furry edge on the palate. 3.5/5

Overall: A good malt-driven IPA. I'd have this one again.
