A new beer in our area to try....

Poured into my usual glass and got a bright gold clear body with medium head and good lacing.

Nose at first was perfumy but it came around and became citrus.

Taste is fairly malty, but of course the hops are there. It says "Enjoy by Nov. 30 2011" so it would probably be much better if you could get this right off the truck.

Mouth feel was a little weak as well. Not flat but just didn't have enough bite for me.

Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with this beer, except I have had some fresh ones(other brands) lately and now the stuff that has been on the shelf for a bit isn't strong enough!! I used to like the balanced flavor. I will try this again

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

Appearance: The beer is golden yellow with slight signs of carbonation coming up through the side of the glass. One finger head reduced to a thin layer and left some lacing on the side of the glass.

Smell: Slight citrusy and grapefruit scent. Pretty weak scent with nothing else going on.

Taste: A lot better. Sweet caramel malts, same citrusy tastes, and boozy alcohol towards the end. Some biscuit going on there too. Very nice.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium bodied, medium carbonation, and a little chewy.

Overall: I have had this before and remember it be a great beer. Maybe the beer is a bit old and maybe I need to go to the brewery in Boulder again next month. Still going to be buying this over and over.

bigtime ipa. this one pours a brassy gold color with a modest white head. whoa hops in the nose, i smell major american varieties, man bold. taste is less intense than the nose, but stands up to some spicy chips and salsa real well. this is a really pungent hoppy brew, mouthfeel matches perfectly, lighter side of medium bodied with a nice balanced carbonation and finish. not necessarily remarkable for being different, but just a really well made ipa, and the abv can render you useless after a long hike if you arent careful...

A = Nice golden appearance little lighter than a normal IPA, head was a bit lite too. Not very thick

S = Smelled amazing, sweetness with a light malt to it

T = Not the best, I would call it average. Citrus and a bit too bitter than normal IPA. Almost a hint of metallic to it too.

M = Lot of linger on the palatte and bit of dryness late.

O = Good not great beer, would have again though. B range is about right.

Pours a light pale yellow/orange with a settling white head.

Smells of dank, juicy hops with lots of tropical fruity citrus aromas.

Taste is similar to smell with an abrupt introduction to hop bitterness and mouth watering complexity. Malts come through after searching and warming offering an ideal balance.

Decent IPA. Would try it again.

Had this at the Jamison Pourhouse on nitro tap.

Poured a pale golden orange with, of course, a billowing dense head from the nitrogen.

Aromas of caramel malts and refreshing hops.

Tastes more akin to an ESB. That was more then likely due to the nitrogen. From the nitro this beer has a more malty asspect, caramel sweetness. The hop flavor has mellowed into a more sutle pine resin and floral flavor.

The mouthfeel on this particular beer being nitro is rather thick and creamy. Lite bitterness at the end with only a hint of aftertaste, clean.

I had this beer before, nitro seem to scrub out all the harshness and leave a more drinkable, smoother beer.

12oz bottle poured into Duvel snifter. Enjoy by Jan 12 2012 stamped on neck.

Appearance - Huge billowing barely offwhite head. Hazy amber body.

Smell - Moderate spicey hop. sweet undercurrent promises to balance out the taste.

Taste - Sweet. Hoppy with a slightly bitter but mostly clean finish. Not much of an aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Almost creamy. A bit sticky.

Overall Drinkability - Decent beer. Some balance. Not particularly complex.

22oz bomber poured into a pint glass.

A- Light copper color. One finger white head that goes fast and leaves decent sheeted lacing.

S- Light citrus, pine, bready malts come through lightly. Slight alcohol heat

T- Mango with a nice bitter piney attribute. Sweet bready malts in the finish.

M- Highly carbonated. Medium mouthfeel for the style. Easy to drink.

O- Good IPA. This bomber tastes better than I remember, maybe a recipe change?

On-tap at Boulder Beer Tap House at the Denver Airport

A: The beer pours a clear pale golden color with a white head and some lacing.

S: Not the hoppiest nose on this. Floral and sweet citrus hops with some more subtle tangerine and orange aromas. A sweet bread malt aroma, too.

T: Sweet on the palate as well (seems to be a trend). A bit of pine and some light apricot notes. Sweet bread and a faint toffee flavor is there as well. A light citrus flavor, perhaps tangerine just a bit of grapefruit.

M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation.

O: As far as IPAs go, this was middle of the road at best.
