stuck in the airport in Aruba for another 12 hrs or so...I NEED a beer and this is far and away the best option...best by may 2017...I'll take it. angrily annoyed from the bottle. paid $15!!!!! but this is worth it. I NEEDED this. decent ipa w a nice sweet floral hop. doesn't taste fresh like they code 3 months out so this is probably 3+ monthe old and it ain't bad.

Brief impressions from a bottle. I know I've reviewed this before; I just haven't gotten around to typing up my original notes yet.

Pours a clean bright copper body with a fluffy soft off-white cap.

Aroma is creamy and floral, with some pale malt and caramalt keeping the mild hop bitterness in line. A muted shallow aroma suggesting a reticent simplistic beer.

Taste is reticent and simple as can be, hitting a note of pale malt, a note of floral hops, and...well, that's pretty much it, save for a blip of a grapefruit flavour that emerges late in the game. No depth or intricacy of flavour whatsoever. Somewhat insipid, with no real hop pungency.

Overcarbonated and unbecomingly dry. Not the juicy refreshing light-bodied mouthfeel one would hope for.

Overall, it's more mediocre fare from Boulder Beer Co. Very forgettable, but not undrinkable. I continue to be underwhelmed by Boulder Beer's efforts.

taste: Disappoints. Apples, Pears. High Alcohol is unmasked.
FEEL: Quite a bite.Fizzy. Alive.
Not bad, but a little harsh, even for a new age IPA.

From notes taken 07/06/16:

Mostly clear, peach-toned amber. Thick, uneven, two-finger, foamy, dull white head of good retention. Resin, light and dark fruit, alcohol aromas. Imperial IPA palate and at 7.2% ABV, no great surprise. Moderately sweet throughout, but more so perfumey. Crackery backbone. Finish is somewhere in the midst of perfume, flowers, resin, rind, soap, leather. Full-bodied or close, suds to velvet from start to finish, quite warm and astringent. I rarely do this, but 3.75 across the board. Decent for an IPA, mediocre for an IIPA.

Paid ~$10 for a six pack. Poured into a tulip glass, half an inch of pretty loose head with a moderately aggressive pour.

Quite a nice beer. The malt/hop balance is much to my preference, with a solid bready base and thick body to hold all that dank, resinous hop. The hop profile is a nice grapefruit-like bitterness balanced by a tangerine-like sweetness. Not super effervescent, and has quite a sticky finish and mouth feel. That bitterness really sticks around for awhile.

Would buy again.

Unfortunately as I pour this one I see that the enjoy by date is 8 days from today. I now know this beer is at the end of it's life. This is golden in color with plenty of carbonation but lacks greatly in hop juiceiness and malt backbone. Slightly watery and has a touch of an old, stale taste. Def does not taste like an IPA
