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.

Pours a clear, copper color. 2/3 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of pine, hops, alcohol, sweet malt, hint of resin, and a hint of caramel malt. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of alcohol, sweet malt, pine, resin, hops, and a hint of floral notes. Overall, great appearance, good body, aroma, blend, and feel.

Look: Pinkish amber in color. Thick streaks of "sediment?" and no carbonation. Half a finger of off white head dissipates quickly. Better than expected lacing.

Smell: Sticky piney resin. Light tropical fruit undertones.

Taste: Caramel and toffee up front. Light and quick. Nearly missed it. Middle bridges nicely to end but offers nothing new to the profile. Finish is bitter, though not as much as I was expecting. Piney and light lemon citrus.

Feel: Medium body and pretty dang dry finish. A little thin but damn close.

Overall: Pretty decent everyday IPA. Likable but not lovable. I would still rather have a SN Torpedo. Worth a six pack. Maybe it'll sit with you better than me. Above average. Not terribly much to it.

Amber colored with excellent clarity. A fingernail of tan colored foam sits on top. Aroma of piny hops and light malt greets my nose. I taste piny hops and light malt. The mouth is slightly chewy and sticky.

Overall, this is a delicious, hoppy beer. Not much flavor other than the hops but the more you drink, the more fruit tones you discover.

Poured a golden yellow color with a white head of foam. Nice head retention and it left sticky rings of lace. It smelled piney with some strong citrus notes. It tasted of pine and orange with a sweet caramel backbone.
