Poured from tap into pint at falling rock in denver. Pours a clear golden amber with nice foam head and good lacing. Smells of nice candy hops. Taste is really smooth candy like hops with a super crisp malt finish. Really well balanced and full of nice flavor. Such a well crafted IPA. Well worth a visit from anyone!!

Poured from a 16oz bottle into a RR Pint. Bottled on 5/28, almost 3 weeks old.

A: Pours a very clear golden amber with a 1finger white head. Some retention and lacing are present.

S: Smells of pine/resin and citrus and some tropical fruits.

T: Pine/resin up front some malts peak through in the middle with a bitter hop finish.

M: Light body, low carbonation.

O: Overall, a slight letdown. Smells delicious, but doesn't deliver on the taste. It's still a great brew, just doesn't quite live up to the hype.

Bottled date May 28, 2012, poured into Firestone Walker pint glass.

Reviewing as I drink.

S - Piney resin with orange/tangerine peel. Not the best smelling IPA, but inviting.

T - It's so nectar-y that it's got this kind of light tang or tartness to it that rolls from the front of the tongue towards the back throughout the sip. It then lingers for a second. Pine-y hops come in during the 2nd half of the sip while that tangy-ness is going on.

M - Light-bodied and drinkable. Light crisp level of carbonation.

O - Very balanced, well-crafted, and interesting. Had this both from tap and bottle on multiple occasions and never have I been disappointed. One of my TOP 5 IPA/DIPAs. Very suitable in So. CA summer weather!
