On tap at the Yak & Yeti in Arvada.
Appearance - orange, looks light and very carbonated. Thin, white head that leaves a thick ladder of lace!
Smell - mild blend of pine, grass and floral hops along with a very tame candy malt presence.
Taste - nice balance of hops and malts; refreshing, however a bit too light.
Feel - superb hop/malt balance, but finishes a bit light and watery.
Overall - worth it if your in Arvada or Westminster and craving Indian food, but overall a bit disappointing.

From a growler of which I've gotten half a dozen or more. Also just had the double IPA on tap at the brewery, for reference.
Poured from growler into a Corsendonk chalice.
Gold color with modest head and significant lace.
Big aroma of grassy hops, sweet malts, sour dough.
Significant mouthfeel and carbonation.
Flavors of amber malts, straw hops, cream of tartar, grassy hops, some slight pepper and astringency. Overall big, full bodies, flavorful with some challenging elements...some funky fruit rind juice, but overall very tasty for a pint or more.

a good brew overall, kind of a blend between east and west coast ipa styles. pours perfectly clear and radiant sunset yellow/orange color, with a one inch head that fades quickly. the smell is a mix of higer alpha hop varieties and some acidic grapefruity tartness in the finish. flavor is sweeter hops up front, bitter hops in the back, and a fruity yeast that ties it all together. cant say its anything way out of the ordinary, but its got a nice punch to it, and its a very sessionable ipa. it also stands up well to the spicy and flavorful food at the yak and yeti, which is a must. feel is fine, a little slim on carbonation and a little thin on body, but thats okay with the heavy food. overall a worthwhile ipa, plenty drinkable, and crisp in the finish.
