On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings.

This brew may have benefited form a smaller glass rather than the humongo ones that BWW likes to serve their pops in. This started off well, but by the time I made it to the final quarter, it was Hero Time like you do when drinking Colt 45's.

12 oz can, one of a Denver mix6 pk.

Pours nice apricot color, minor haziness. Half inch of slightly creamy head. Not much aroma.
Not very active in the glass....carbonation is weak.

Taste is citrusy, mainly grapefruit. Slight resiny tongue, some lacing on the glass.
Head is mostly gone after two sips.
Taste doesn't tend to linger. The strong dryness in the mouth motivates the next sip more than desire or anticipation.

A decent "draft in the pub after work" kind of beer, but nothing to get excited over.
The name is very much up for interpretation: Is it a frank admission of a lack of hop flavor? Probably not the intention, but that's what it is.

12 oz. Can

Pours a nice slightly cloudy dark golden orange color, nice carbonation, with a nice one-finger creamy off-white head, which leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, with some malt, nice citrus note. The taste is hoppy, very nice malt note, with some nice citrus. Medium body, with a dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty IPA. My second brew from this brewery.

Great full bodied IPA. Pours a clear amber color. Not much head. Smells strongly of hops, notes of sweet malts. Flavor is a sweet malt with medium carbonation at first, turns to a bitter hoppy-pungent flavor, ends dry and malty. Enjoyable beer, I like a hoppy IPA, so I will drink again. I like to support local breweries, and Colorado has many to choose from.
