APPEARANCE: The color of this beer is gorgeous; a medium shade of copper-orange that is nearly crystal clear. A finger and a half of head rises with the first poor then settles into a coaster-sized cap. Hundreds of bubbles surround the outsides of the glass and dart up to the top as soon as the wiggle themselves free from the glass itself. The lacing is not super thick, but it leaves a record of each sip with a nice layer.

SMELL: The fruit aromas are the star of the show here. Grapefruit (with a little sugar on top), orange and maybe a touch of apricot are all here. Some pine with a hint of grass and some nice floral notes complete the smell.

TASTE: A luscious caramel backbone provides a canvass for all the traditional, American-style IPA flavors to play; grass, pine, orange, grapefruit, mango (maybe?) and biscuit. The bready finish is a perfect complement to the malty start.

MOUTHFEEL: Sweet to start, dry to finish. Medium bodied with a pleasant sparkle.

OVERALL: We have some outstanding IPAs in this market here in Colorado, but there are very few East Coast-style IPAs that are made this well. An homage to balance, the hops are enough to satisfy any hophead, but with enough complexity to turn the anti-IPA crowd into fans.
