From BeerAdvocate Magazine Volume II, Issue IV:
Massive head from a steady pour, the lacing is pretty amazing as it leaves a coating down the glass. Bright and clear amber color. Bittersweet aroma of caramel and toasted malt with a thick blanketing of wildflowers and blonde tobacco from the hops. Medium-bodied with a sufficient crispness. Sizable hop flavor with thick herbal, minty, orange rind and black tea flavors. Bitterness is strong but more of an astringent pucker than a sharp bite. Maltiness is present with a good amount of breadiness and caramel malt middle to end, though the hops do stay way on top. Quick fume of clean alcohol in the semi-dry bitter finish.
Any true hophead will be able to take this American IPA on, a sure pick and a great example of what US mountain region breweries do for their IPAs.
