A - Clear golden color with a very slight head.
S - Slight hop aroma, some malty aromas and a hint of butter.
T - Buttery diacetyl evident, with a slight hop aroma, and substantial bitterness, followed by some alcohol notes.
M - Medium full bodied, with good carbonation.

The buttery flavor and lack of finishing hops in this beer are very disappointing.

Nothing special about this beer. But I very drinkable English style ipa . Pour is dull with a small head. Deep gold brown look and the English malts are right up front on the nose. Taste is crisp and clean with good feel in the mouth. Overall not bad but not something to go look for.. would like to try on tap for comparison.

Light golden with dense head. Piney nose reminiscent of backwoods off bug repellent but not in a bad way. High citrus notes, grapefruit, orange peel. Lighter body and low carbonation.

Draft at the Bookcliff Bar, Grand Junction.
Bright saturated orange, spotty lace, some foam initially.
Light grapefruit rind and bready caramel malt aroma.
Resiny bitter taste, bitter grapefruit peel, bready caramel malt.
Light bodied and a little sticky. Not bad, better than the 2015 bottle. A pretty textbook IPA.

12oz from whole foods, but also saw it at brewers haven and a couple other places... Pours sorta clear light amber.. short lived white head shows good lacing. Fruity yeast and dry toast, grassy/floral hoppiness is the big player with a lesser citrus.. Flavor mirrors the aroma perfectly.. Decent bitterness up front and on the finish but is very flimsy in the middle.

Not sure what to say about this one.. There is a minerally dry finish that carries the bitterness for a while...

Personally, I don't care for it but I guess if the brewers were shooting for English IPA, then they did an okay job.

This beer has no character - very mild like most English IPAs. No bitterness, no obvious problems - just Ok. I would drink it if there was nothing else. Definitely would want to chill this one.

On-Tap 16 oz. (Kannah Creek)

Pours a nice clean/clear golden orange color, nice carbonation, with a nice one-finger creamy white head, leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, with some very nice citrus notes. The taste is pretty nice, hoppy, nice citrusy. Medium body with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall a pretty tasty brew.
