[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

The pour was a hazy reddish orange with an average (1-2 finger) off white frothy head that was mostly lasting, reducing to a thin cap with good sheets of streaky lacing.

The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, pine hops and a moldy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit and orange peel) and a light fruity ester.

The taste was mildly malty and a tad sweet with a hint of caramel and a slight fruitiness early on, and then become moderately hoppy with shot of grapefruit and a bitter citrus peel finish. The flavor hung on for a good long time proceeding the swallow with a bitter citrus peel taste left lying on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was just past light in body and extremely dry in texture with a carbonation that was just past medium.

Overall this was a very tasty IPA, with a strong bitter hoppy presence that was offset nicely by a mild fruity sweetness...

16 oz can. Pours a slightly hazy light copper amber with a smallish off-white head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet caramel / crystal malts with fruity, piney hops.

The flavor is sweet caramel / crystal malts with sugary fruits and a big bitter resiny, almost charred, hop finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with low carbonation and is a bit watery.

Overall, it's not well blended - very sweet, extract-like with a big bitter finish.

Deep copper color with a half inch of off frothy white. Heavy lacing. Aroma is of pungent piney hops and freshly mown grass. I taste deep, dank piney hops and yet there's light malt to keep things in check. The mouth is sticky and chewy.

On tap at Beau's in Black Forest, CO. Clear Copper/Amber color, nice one inch head, great retention and lacing. Aroma was very piney, with a bit of fruitiness and sweet malt. The taste was pretty close to the smell, with just a bit of citrus added in. The mouthfeel was medium bodied, with good carbonation. Hadn't had this one before, was pleasantly surprised.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Look: Two and a half fingers of creamy almost pinkish head dissipates slowly to about a half finger ring around the glass. Bubbly lacing. Clear copper in color. Light carbonation.

Smell: Caramel malt backbone. Pretty resinous. A little citrus, not quite grapefruit.

Taste: Malt forward. Caramel and some bread. Hops are a little understated and piney. This is far more malt dominant. Reminds me more of an English IPA.

Feel: Oily. Lightly carbonated. Half-dry finish.

Overall: I really like English style IPA's so I'm a bit of a sucker. It probably gets a slightly higher score if it gets categorized as such. Not very balanced and is marketed as a "Dank" earthy resinous IPA and that falls a little flat. Worth a shot especially if you enjoy English IPAs

Poured on tap into a stemless like wine glass at Prost brewing company, from notes of Jan 2013. Originally entered under Prost brewing.

A real brown ruby gorgeous amber body color. Faint tan colored head with a creamy top presented with about a finger of head. Lacing coats in rings all over. This looks like a real jewel.

Nose is full of dank earthy tones. Bready malt escapes between the hop front quite a bit nicely.

Palate is rich in caramel and hop juice earth. Super chewy malts and green hops. Finishes with light caramel sweetness and balanced hop action. Earthy pine just whsipers on the breath when finishing.

Overall reminds me of a good balanced Deviant Dale's Ale. Delicious stuff.

Bought at Trader Joes in a 4-pack for New Years Eve, I saved one to rate.

Very lively transparent (but clouds when the final bit goes in) yellow orange colored beer. Fizzy foamy white head pours about two fingers and leaves good lacing as it resides a bit. Good balance between citrus hops and malts.

Citrus centered hop profile. With some citrus forward IPA you don't always get that bitter punch at the end, but this one is just fine in that category. Medium body and on the low side of medium carbonation.

Overall: I really like this beer. A great example of a well balanced, delicious IPA. Will most likely purchase again. One of my favorite Colorado IPAs.

Poured from the can into a Chimay goblet.

The beer pours a darker amber than your average IPA. It is just a bit cloudy and doesn't have quite enough head. The hop profile is intense with a bitterness that is a bit heavy. I'm getting some pine and citrus peel, but the finish is just bitter. There is some malt in the background, but it is overshadowed by the hop bitterness. This isn't overly impressive, but it's a pretty good beer.
