A: single finger head. Nice retention. Tons of lace.

S: wet sock hop aroma which is pungent and malty.

T: nice hop character which is mostly pine oriented. Citrus in the finish.

M:medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: another good wynkoop brew with a complex hop content. If I lived nearby this would be my go-to beer while here.

Serving type: on-tap

Wynkoop Mile HIPA is a hazy golden ale with an off white head that fades to a dense, splotchy film that leaves a dense sheet of foam on the glass. The strong, resiny, pine aroma is very fresh. The smooth, medium body ends with a very dry, astringent finish. It's heroically bitter, like pine resin nectar. The bitter hop oils dominate the flavor from the start and persist long after the swallow. It's a little soapy and there's a hint of orange peel. This is an aggressively hopped American IPA. Only drink it when you're sure you don't need to taste anything else that day.

On tap at the Wynkoop, poured into a pint glass.
Appearance - a hazy, dark gold/orang; some streams of carbonation that lead to a thin white head. Lacing is surprisingly phenomenal!
Smell - tame hops, primarily pine and floral; sweet candy malts.
Taste - far more hops on the palate than the nose would indicate. Nice balanced IPA with the pine, floral and some grassy hops ultimately beating out the sweet, flavorful malts!
Feel - creamy, light to medium feel. Nice bitter finish!
Overall - another underrated CO IPA; the nose isn't as profound as I'd like, but beyond that, outstanding!

A real nice extra hoppy IPA. It could probably pass for a double IPA even in my opinion. Quite hoppy and good. I think any hop head could enjoy this.

A - Rich gold color. Big foamy frothy head that left behind real nice lacing.

S - full fresh hops. A lot of pine and citrus oil smell. Some sweet background.

T - Full bitterness range, not too bitter. Very nice citrusy and pine like hop aftertaste. Enough of some body behind it all to carry it through. Tastes strong, but I wasn't sure of the abv.

M - very smooth and a bit viscous. Nice level of carb.

D - Good. It's hoppy but not too hoppy. I had 2 pints.

On draught at the brewpub, Mile HI.P.A is a clear brassy gold with a small off-white head leaving decent foamy lace.

Smell is fruity, mango, with some citrus hops, light bread. Smells like an English pale ale with the esters.

Taste is more assertively hoppy then the nose, with resinous pine flavor and a firm, lingering bitterness. Nice malt back bone with plenty of esters as well.

Mouthfeel is crisp, slick and dry, but with creamy carbonation and a medium light body.

Drinkability is good, tasty but could use more hop aroma and taste. Maybe not super fresh, but then again, I'm drinking it at the source...

A: Nice one finger of frothy head with good retention and decent lacing. Golden/yellow coloration.

S: Spicy hops with a clear caramel backbone.

T: Nicely bitter, more so than most standard AIPAs. Citrus, floral, and piney flavors are present with a resinous pine in the forefront. Slight toasty caramel carries through. A tad bit watery.

M: Medium body with a fairly strong resinous feel. Nice carbonation.

D: Tasty and therefore fairly drinkable. I can tell, both by the bartenders comments and my own experience, that this one is up there in ABVs. Still, there is little alcohol presence and just a very strong bitterness.

I must admit that keeping this growler overnight proved to greatly impact this beer. Much of the carbonation was released, and this impacted both the beer's appearance and mouthfeel greatly. For this reason I'm bringing last nights experience of this brew into consideration, and it has influenced this review.

I had this on draft at the brewery.

Appearance: hazy golden yellow orange color. Somewhat foggy with signs of carbonation and some lacing too.

Smell: citrus and grapefruit up front, some nice bready and biscuity. Bitterness lingers around for a little bit.

Mouthfeel: Silky smooth, medium carbonation, medium bodied, a little chewy, and easy to drink.

Overall: we came here last year and happy to have some of their beers once again this afternoon.

Serving type: on-tap
