A solid beer but not my favorite. A surprisingly dark yet appealing amber color for an IPA. Nose is hints of grapefruit and pine. Taste has similar characteristics but they are almost overpowered by a sweet, caramel maltiness. It's good. I like somewhat malty IPAs but this is more than I prefer. The dating on the can suggests it's pretty fresh, but I wonder if it's a bit past its prime and has lost some hop kick.

Great amber hue with a fingernail of off white head covering the top of the beer. Nice Brussels lacing. Moderately strong aroma of piney hops. The taste is a burst of piney hops on the front of the palate. There is a presence of light malt but it is definitely a background note throughout the palate. The mouth is a bit sticky and fairly dry.

On tap at the hotel lobby bar in Denver (Grand Hyatt). Pours amber orange color with a small creamy off white head. Big grapefruit and pine on the nose, some grass, and surprisingly strong sweet malts going on here. Flavor follows with a massive punch of dry bitterness, pine, bitter grapefruit, some mango. Resinous and bitter, finishing dry, with medium body and medium plus carbonation. This beer was excellent and reminded me a lot of an amped up Jai Alai. Definitely worth a go.
