3.55/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

I haven't had many Fort Collins beers, despite seeing them quite often. I've been waiting for them to come up in rotation at local bars to give them a shot and sticking with picking up bottles of stuff that's harder to find.

A: Pours a nice amber/ruby with a small, tight head. Almost got it confused with my girlfriend's Abita Amber just from the look of it.

S: Wow, tons of hops in the nose. A slight sweetness is detectable underneath it, but almost all hops, and in a big way.

T: Again, up front I'm getting lots and lots of hop bitterness, with just a tiny bit of sweetness on the end of it. I'm surprised at how assertive the hop flavor is. As it warms, I can get more malt and some caramel, too.

M: Good carbonation and a super-light body for a beer of this type.

D: Although the mouthfeel is nice, I feel that this left me with a really dry feeling and a lasting bitterness. It was okay to have one, but I can't see myself ordering these back to back ever.

Overall, this is a good beer, especially for those more interested in hoppy IPAs. I feel like it could have used a tiny bit more sweetness to balance out the flavor, but it's still an above average IPA.

Serving type: on-tap
