I just tried this beer on a whim and i loved it. It has an extremely hoopy aroma to it. Pours a nice amber orange with an off white head. The inital taste is awesome. It is full of fresh hops, probably one of the best beers that i have had. They go down extremely smooth also. There is a high drinability to this brew. A must try.

Interesting and enjoyable beer that reminds me of an ESB/English IPA/American IPA hybrid.

Some toffee and mineral water notes on the nose along with a nice fragrant hop aroma. Hops impart a floral impression first and then a bit of a sweeter citrus fruit note.

This is 6.5% but drinks like a mild almost. Never feels thin but very easy drinking. There is an underlying sweet toffee maltiness that complements the floral hoppiness perfectly. Not particularly bitter but there seems to be a small portion of west coast IPA style hops that lend a citrus note (think sweet mandarin oranges). The predominant hop feel though is english..perhaps east kent?....Then there is a unique hop taste that reminds me of something along the lines of Summit (the hop not the beer)...

Drinks like a 5.0 ABV beer....really slides down easily and with a lot of flavor....hard to keep this one in the glass.

A real interesting, tasty beer that will allows have a place in my refrigerator.

This has become one of my favorite beers as of late. It has a great, hoppy flavor that doesn't completely destroy my tastebuds. When I'm down to drinking a beer for a session this, and other Boulder beers, does the trick.

Poured into a pilsner glass Cold HOp has a pretty, subdued gold with a decent whitish head that dissipates quickly, lacing the glass for the duration of the drink.

A nice, crisp aroma, even if it lacks any truly distinguishing characteristics.

Pours easily down the gullet, llight on the tongue, and tastes great a tad on the colder side (I'm guessing 36-38ish).

This beer pours a slightly hazy copper color with a thick white head. The aroma of this beer is delicious. It smells like toasted malts and a spicy noble hop character. There is another aroma that is very interesting that I cant pin down. The taste is toasty, with a caramel sweetness. The bitterness seems to balance with the malt. There is a slight noble spicey hop flavor. The mouthfeel is medium light, with a decent amount of carbonation. This beer is very well balanced, and is also very drinkable.
