12oz bottle $2.59. Nice orange color, great clarity, lots of lacing, looks very appealing. Aroma is dead malts and just a boring hop character. The flavor is more old malts, deadness, not a nice beer. It tastes oxidized, smells like dog food, maybe the only thing they took from Denver was notes of the Purina factory. Pitiful as far as IPA's go. Maybe they moved because the standards are lower in Maryland and they couldn't keep up I'm CO.

Poured into a tulip. Amber and gold with a frothy white head, great retention. Smells sweet and cirtusy with alcohol on the nose. Soft nip of alcohol on the front, mellowing in to thick malt backbone, great citusy and fruity hop finish. Very smooth, hides the alcohol well. Great beer.
