BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Renegade Brewing Company
Colorado, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Elevation - E3

Craving something with bold hops and high ABV? Endpoint (E3) is your beer. Single hopped with tons of summit hops, this beer is a great example of how complex a single-hopped beer can be. Summit hops are extremely diverse containing flavors of grapefruit, pine, and sweet onion. Our brewers are careful to add the hops at specific times in the boil to bring out each unique flavor. What started as a challenge to make a “hop bomb” has turned into a hop-lover’s dream. Get this year-round beer on draft or in cans.

Killer beer. Aroma has all kinds of thangs going on- floral, moss, caramel, hops, malt, wet grain, to start. Flavor's similar to nose, but muted and super smooth. Smooth easy body too. Very little sign of alcohol. Really easy drinking.

Renegade is pretty new to the Denver Beer scene. Great taproom and nice people! Decent beers, but nothing groundbreaking. I've watched this company grow as it started off on a totally different marketing platform under "Journey Brewing" then right before they opened it seems like someone shook them up and told them they needed to steal a few pages from Stone Brewing co circa 1998 and act like rebels/badasses and it really comes off unoriginal and out of place. Their marketing is cringe worthy while making fun of "yellow fizz drinkers" and "do the do's or dont do the do's", and on this lovely can it reads "offensively delicious" and "here's to the renegades".. it'll give you douchechills so badly you'll want to brownbag every beer you get from them. All of that aside, I love this beer! When I have a craving for big hops (and wanting to support a local brewery) I'll look past all of that and slap down my hard earned dough on this well balanced hop bomb. Hits hard on all fronts and is by far the best thing to come out of that brewery to date.

Well damn if this isn't an underrated beer!

12oz can into Captain Lawrence tulip. Big thanks to BA morningthief for picking this up for me in Denver.

Appearance: Opaque brown orange. 1.5 inch frothy white head that lasts and leaves a wall of lacing. Looks like something out of a cauldron, and good.

Smell: Hefty dose of yet-to-be-boiled pale malt, along with sweet candy and crystal malt and an undercurrent of dank and grapefruity Summit hops.

The taste tells that this is a seriously hopped beer, but it's not very apparent in the nose. That said, the smell is sort of like baking cookies in the grain section of the homebrew shop. This is a good thing. Some chewy, citrusy and pineapple fruitiness as well.

Taste: Not since fresh original-recipe Oskar Blues GUBNA have I tasted the full force of Summit hops: tastes like a mix of marijuana and green onion. However, in this beer it's balanced by caramel malt to give it a strawberry and caramel flavor.

Those 3 flavors don't sound very good together do they? Well, they are. This is a *great* triple IPA, like a better thought out Devil Dancer (or a better thought out GUBNA). Subtle bitterness, amazingly well hidden ABV, unrestrained Summit hops delivered in a way that makes sense.

Mouthfeel: Full side of medium bodied. Sort of hop oily thick and slightly creamy. Mild dryness but I don't really miss it. Works perfectly with the flavor.

Overall: Very impressed with this beer. It's like a barleywine-ized Green Flash DIPA with more focused Summit hops and a more pleasing grain bill.

My friend tells me the locals drink a lot of this beer. They have it good in Colorado.

one of the most unique and delicious india pale ales ive ever enjoyed. pours a murky golden color with a fairly small white head. very unassuming appearance. smell changes everything, huge fresh hop aroma, very complex. it smells a little fruity and on the lighter side of bitterness. aromas of cut grass, green apple, and lemon myrtle are all present. flavor is huge too, so much interesting light hops, not dissimilar to the sorachi ace hop profile with that delicate sort of fruity thing happening. a mediumm pale malt body rounds it out. the alcohol is well disguised and the mouthfeel is perfect for this beer. not over carbonated, and drinkable for a beer of this magnitude. i was very very impressed with this one.

The name of the beer has apparently changed from "Elevation" to "Endpoint", otherwise this appears to be same beer and logo on can...

Pale auburn pour with coppery hue/thick white foam/good lacing and carbonation.
Grapefruit and lemongrass hop aromas.
Grapefruit hop and caramel malt flavors - good juicy bitter linger.
Medium light mouthfeel with a little hop stickiness.
Excellent balance between hop bittering and malt foundation/boozy bite on the finish is a plus.
