look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Crystal clear amber with huge fluffy white head; lacing is solid.

Flavors are balanced; sweet malts followed by bitter hops. The flavors are muddled, the hops and malts do come in waves but the individual flavors aren’t really distinguishable. It’s malt and hops. The smell is strong and dank.

Pretty good.

This is more of UK ipa with a heavy malt bill and more subtle hops.

Pours copper with good head and excellent lacing.

Smell is dank and herbally, with lots of malt.

Malt carries over to the taste and the dank is well.balance.

A.bit caramelly finish for an IPA

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 16 oz can with a Feb. 2017 canning date into a Sam Adams glass.

Appearance: pours with a copper color body topped by a large, billowy white head. The head has very good retention and leaves foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Hoppy but too dank. Earthy and grapefruit aromas as well as some pine.

Flavor: The taste is way better and less dank that the aroma suggests. It also has a clear input from the malt bill.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and lively but soft medium+ carbonation.

Overall: a tasty IPA; ignore the aroma.

I have a bit of hometown bias, but this is one of my favorite IPAs. For those who are crazy about hops, this might not satisfy, but it is a great beer and has a very distinct flavor. I have had it multiple times from cans and taps, at both KH locations and in other settings.

Look: pretty standard golden amber. Typical IPA fare. Fairly foamy head.
Smell: nutty, musty, probably the least appealing feature of the beer.
Taste: Part of what makes this a great beer is the uniqueness of taste. As opposed to the overwhelming hoppy beers that are common to the American IPA style, this beer reminds me more of English IPAs in its balance hopwise. So it is more subtle, and that allows the quality malts to really shine through. As opposed to being an "experience" beer like many hop-forward IPAs, this is a balanced beer that doesn't overwhelm in any way. It reminds me of a session IPA, except it is much higher ABV.
Feel: Not as carbonated as many similar beers. Very, very smooth.

Overall, one of the top 3 beers in the Missoula brewery circuit.
