2.78/5  rDev -31.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Appearance drops in an amberish color, 1/4" white head. Aroma lacked any dry hopping.

Taste was obscured by an excessive amount of carbonation. Still lacking hop character, can't tell if this is old or not from the lack of bottle dating I can discern. So much brown malt and old oxidized cardboard and woody notes. Man GD makes some good stuff but this bottle didn't do the trick.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

L: Copper gold with a creamy white head and quite a bit of lacing.

S: Earthy pine hops and malt. A slight not so f onion. Not very much fruit. Some cereal malt.

T: Lots of pine, and sap balanced out by a sweet cereal malt. Medium bitterness.

F: Medium body and creamy carbonation.

O: A solid IPA, this is one of Denver's classic IPAs.

Poured from the bottle. Nice creamy white head that holds well. Aroma is very malty with slight citrus and pine. Surprised to smell more malt than hops in this beer. Taste is very malty sweet with caramel that is well balanced in the finish, with a hint of grapefruit. Body is medium to full for the style, with creamy mouthfeel. Overall, this is one of the better IPAs I’ve had. Maltier than most but well balanced

Had this one at 12,000 feet elevation in Aspen. Nice caramel color, aroma I could not tell as much as I was outside, great taste, I like the hoppy aftertaste of this beer. Nice. Now let me get back to listening to the Bluegrass music.

Poured from a can...
Look: Clear medium amber; head recedes fairly quickly after pour
Smell: Fresh, pleasant, without a particular dominant aroma
Taste: Very nicely balanced malt and hop, neither one dominates, but both combine for sublime good taste
Feel: Substantial, chewy, without being excessive
Overall: This might just be my new "go-to" favorite, for a balanced malt/IPA brew. Very drinkable.

The tang from the malt comes in strong and tramples over the hops...not sure which pumps were used, but I get a very unsettling flavor of sweet peas?

My favorite beer! I don't know what to think about the local Starbucks selling bottles of it now...
