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.

Somebody said it before, "My favorite IPA I don't like". Sweet alcohol burn slides into some earthy bitterness, more the onion spectrum of hops. Had it draft twice, cans twice, (not at one sitting!!!). This is a strong beer, not the flavor profile of hops taste or smell that I prefer, but it IS whatever a triple IPA IS, no mistaking that. This was labeled Renegade E3, endpoint triple IPA, like the can in the picture.

To sum up, too watery for a proper barleywine, but it could'a been. It was a bit thick on the tongue, mild carbonation in the can but a bit more lively on draft. The alcohol, imho, is very noticeable in the taste and effect, again, my favorite IPA I don't like. Would hesitate to recommend this to any but serious hop heads or barleywine lovers, it would taste like dirt to anyone else.

Nice aroma. Pleasant citrusy hoppiness and sweet malt. Slightly cloudy orange-ish amber color (probably from all the hops) with a white head of slowly fading bubbles. Slight lacing. Full bodied, slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Overall, a very nice triple IPA! Doesn’t taste as strong as it is!

Wife and I were on a trip to Denver. This was a pretty chill/good stop along the way, but of the beers the E3 stood out.
Look: copper, good grip to the glass
Smell: Citrus, hoppy, not too boozy
Taste: Pretty good IIIPA. Smooth and with a punch that isnt too boozy
Feel: Full and Balanced.
Overall: Good beer, I would have it again but wouldnt go out of my way for it.

Appearance - hazy darkish copper color, nice retention. Smell - fruity honestly, mild hop smell. Taste - actually doesn't follow the nose at all. I get a lot of hops and some malt on the back end. Very interesting. Overall - interesting beer, glad I just blindly snagged it while in CO. Would like to try on tap. Girlfriend has not tried but I bet she'll say it tastes like dirt.

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.

Pours a typical golden color. Nice, foamy, cream-colored head. Taste- very sweet, actually, but not cloying. I suppose, because it is hoppy at the same time. Mouthfeel- very thick and creamy, almost syrupy compared to a standard Bud or Coors. I liked this a lot!

I sampled this ale at Bull Market in Valentine Nebraska. Appearance-wise this beer is impressive, there is a hazy, light orange color. A pleasant, citrus aroma greets ones nose when bringing the beer up for a sip. The flavor is robust, with a good balance of significant maltiness against your typical IPA hoppiness. Although not a big IPA fan I do find the high gravity ones interesting and worthy of drinking.

Great rich coloring. Floral hoppy smell. Unfortunately didn't pack the punch I was hoping for. Little watered down. Smooth. Still pretty good though. Would drink as a pint, not order a growler.
