excellent ipa, pulling hop characteristics from all parts of the spectrum. lots of citrus in the nose, lemony and oily, more pine in the flavor, very north woodsy, certainly the bitterness is there, but it also has a fresher, almost vegetal bit to it as well. i like such a well rounded profile to it, and the brilliance is that it seems to all fit, nothing muddled or confused or anything, its really just super well dialed in. some grain character too to balance, some medium crystal malt in with the two row, and a mild nutty base results. that goes really well with the pine side of the hops, which are stronger in the finish than anywhere else. its juicy fresh, a great example of the style, and a really comfortable abv for me personally in an ipa. if this were an everyday option, my fridge would be full of it. i can think of no higher compliment to an ale like this. i wish these guys were in colorado.
