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.

Bottle at America on Tap.
Deep golden color, big rich caramel maltiness with some earthy pine and resin to counter. Pretty good easy drinking slightly sweet IPA.

A - pours a dark, hazy orangish amber with a soft 1/2" cap of dense, white, cloud-like foamy

S - bread, faint grain husks, citrus

T - bread, pineapple, grapefruit, sugar, pine, faint earthy bitter finish

M - crisp, warm, smooth, medium bodied

This is a decent IPA. It as a solid flavor and a great, drinkable, body. It's all around a balanced beer. It's definitely worth a try.

Appearance: Slightly hazed orange copper off white head fine sporadic lacing is left, not bad. Aroma: Citrus, hop leaf grassy notes along with grapefruit tones balanced with a rolling malt base that is evident here. Taste: Hoppy IPA, the bitterness takes shape with a rolling pine and citrus mainly grapefruit expression, with the malt base forming a creamy sweetness blended with the solid offering of hops. Mouthfeel was medium bodied with a nice strong carbonation and slightly oily somewhat resinous texture. Drinkability: Very nice all around IPA served on draft at the Sharp Edge Creekhouse, hop burps were plentiful.

On tap, poured and light amber and clear. white head, leaving thin rings of lacing. Grainy, resiny hop nose. Hops here are citrusy and have a healthy biting nature. Agressive, American syle IPA. Enough malt to smooth out the ride. Nice long hoppy dry finish. Nicely put together, agresssive IPA.

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau glass. Enjoy by April 16th, 2014.

A real nice looker of an IPA, nearly perfect. Three finger creamy head with a little soapy retention, some island puck clumps and spider lacing. The body color is a gorgeous brass orange, crystal clear, just the right amount of active carbonation, slow towards the bottom, a good fast clip to the top. Head falls though a little quickly, but otherwise great looking beer.

Hints of malt and spiced caramel and cinnamon. Slight fruit but kind of small, definitely not a large hop forward brew going on here. Sweet. A little bit of honey and resin hop stick qualities to match also.

Palate comes with a nice clean finish. A short hop pine and controlled blast in the mid palate, but disappears quickly on the swallow. Aftertaste brings a nice honey character with some sweet white sugar but noting overly so. A little light bodied, hints at some tight carbonation on the tongue also.

Not too bad, certainly a good looker, but IPAs have certainly come quite a long way since then.

The first thing I thought when I poured this was: “Ooh. Nice color.” Crystal clear with a gold/orange hue. Some head that seems to be leaving a good bit of lacing on the way down. Nose is heavy on the hops. Flavor is slightly tart with that thick hop presence. Feel is high in carbonation and comfortable. Very drinkable, if you can deal with the hops.

Pours hazy orange with a thin, firm head. Some lacing sticks to the glass.

It has a strong, floral, slightly citrusy aroma.

The taste is of thick, chewy floral hops. Lemony and peppery finish. Not a bad taste at all. Little malt. Sharp.

Medium to full-bodied. Very dry with some astringency. Not bad for sipping though.

This is a hoppy one - liked munching on an alcohol-laced Amarillo hop. I can appreciate hoppiness and was set on a hoppy beer, but too much of one hop and alcohol comes through too much to be a more than a one and move on..(if any taste buds are left).

Nitro tap at Scottys in Indy. This beer arrived looking like a darker Boddingtons, a dark gold in color with a super creamy whipped head. It looks great. The nose is of Sharp and fresh citrusy hops with no bitterness or alcohol. It's really smooth. It tastes of super creamy citrusy hops with a touch of honey and pine. It's extremely palatable. It drinks incredibly creamy and smooth, like velvet. Overall this beer is fantastic on nitro and of all things, is far more impressive than this year's Hopslam on draft. I'm glad I tried it. It was infinitely better than out of the bottle.

Cool, somewhat hazy golden color, with a bone-white head, attractive, big at first, though ultimately short-lived.
Aroma: oh, that's the stuff, like a deep breath in the heart of a primal forest, a crazy mess of spikey, sprucey, herbal hoppitude. Feels like it's dry-hopped. Piney, citrusy.
Continues on the tastebuds, bitter, yet sweetish and slightly fruity.
A bit light in body, a tad lacking in the malt department...it's all over, under and thoroughly about the hops (wish I could which ones). Taste never flags or sags, though that's for sure, if you want hops playing everwhere on your palate, though every inch your mouth, and ushering forth a case of the hop burps, Mojo is here for you. Feels thicker on the mouth further in, sweeter, candyish.
Quite an interesting approach, bitter, yeah, but not too much, and still drinkable. Nice change of pace, though I think I like Hazed and Infused better.

09/06/05- Purchased at a random liquor store in Jackson Hole, WY.

Presentation- 12oz bottle with no freshness date. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

Appearance- Cloudy and orange-golden pour. Full 3/4 inch creamy head with above average lace.

Smell- Such a terrific scent. Strong fruity sweetness with a side note of pine. One of the best scented IPA's I have had.

Taste- Wow, lightly sugary sweet fruity hops with a forest of pine hops involved. Light malt as well. Just enough to keep it on the semi-balanced side.

Mouthfeel- Perfect creamy carbonation level. Leaves a great hoppy taste in your mouth.

Drinkability- Not quite a hop bomb, but balanced on the hop side for sure. Very drinkable. Not really sure it's a session IPA, but it's damn close if not. One of the best IPA's I have had...heck, one of the best of any kind of beers I have had.
