West coast style IPA with loads of pacific northwest hops. Huge pine and grapefruit hop aroma, with flavors of citrus, balanced bitterness with a light malt character.

From a freshly filled growler into a tulip. Reviewed from notes dated July 27, 2014.

A-A slightly aggressive pour nets about two fat fingers of nearly white, sticky foam. The head leaves some chunky lacing as it fades. The beer appears to be still in the glass. It is clear with an orange-golden hue.

S-The aroma is a lovely citrus-forward blend of orange zest, floral notes, and a bit of sharp, bitter pine. The smell is well balanced, however, with a good malt presence to back up the hops...light caramel and biscuit.

T-The taste, like the smell, is well balanced with the light caramel flavors holding up well against the aggressive hops. The flavor tends toward pine and bitterness when cold, but the orange zest and fruitier tropical flavors open and assert themselves more as the beer warms. The finish kicks just a bit with some floral, peppery alcohol and hops.

M-The body is medium in heft, maybe medium-plus, with smooth carbonation that is lighter than average. Drinkable.

O-I really enjoyed the entire growler of this stuff. It tastes like a well-made beer with nice balance, good layering of flavors, and a delicious hop note. I don't know if this is truly a "west coast" IPA but I don't really care because it drinks well and I enjoyed it.

SuperPower IPA delivers an absolute beat down on the palate. And I love it. Tons of dank citrus, grapefruit, pine, resin, herbal, floral, and sticky oiliness with a juicy center and clean, bready, malty backbone. Full-bodied, not overly sweet, and ends dry.

Borders a Double IPA. But whatever. SuperPower IPA is one of the best American IPAs from Colorado, and arguably one of the best in the country. And drinking another beer after it is pointless, so you might as well have another.

Served out of a growler last night, poured fresh just shortly before drinking. This beer smells incredible and is very juicy, full of grapefruit and pine notes. I love super hoppy and flavorful beers, and while this could benefit from being slightly hoppier/pinier, this is one of my top two favorites that Comrade offers. I've been very impressed with everything that I've had so far at Comrade, and they are super friendly there as well. Could definitely see myself drinking lots of this beer. Recommend.
