2.78/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12 oz. can into standard pint glass.

A - looks a nice amber color, with a bit of cloudiness to it. Head retention was minimal and disappeared within a minute or so.

M - smooth. Different, reminds me more of an English ipa. That said, much different than the most ipa's in colorado.

T - really small hop flavor. Dominated by malt. Not bad, just not what I expected.

D - drinkable, but I'd have a tough time buying this one again unless it was the only ipa in the store.

Served on tap @ Silverton Brewery.
A- Clear amber with 1 finger of heasd that quickly goes away. No lacing.
A_ very light hops & malt smell Hard to smell over the burnt pizza smell permiating the establishment.
T- Light hops taste w/ big malt back note.
M- Medium to light mouth feel with proper carbonation.
The menu says this is an IPA 6.5 ABV @ 73 IBU. Board on wall says "Americanized ESB" using cascade and palisades hops 6.0 abv 72 IBU.
This seems to be more of an ESB.
I would not go out of my way to get this beer, in fact given this trail and other reviews I will probably avoid this brewery. See my beerfly report for more.
