Thanks to Oxymoron for this. best by: 5/4/08 consumed on 2/7/08

This is a true pale golden amber color, big carbonation, one finger-deep, all-white head with plenty of sticky lacing after really good retention. Great look.

A nice herbal, grainy, wheatie but very fruity hop scent pops right out of the glass, fresh cascade-like hops, distinct pineapple tang and sweetness follows.

This is a rightous IPA flavor, very "wet hop" flavor with big fruitiness, especially pineapple and apricot, also herbal and wet-earth scented, a nice round mix of hop flavors here for sure. There's also a smooth, roastie malt that adds excellent balance. This one is like a perfect mix of IPA's...it's got the fruity-red berries and smooth buttery malt flavor's of a Harpoon IPA and the acidic pineapple edge of the Stone Ruination but toned down just a bit. slightly spicey on the way down.

Medium, crisp, clean, good bite but smooth finish. Just right.

A fine IPA here folks.

Pours a clear and true red with little to no topping.

Smells uniquely oily and citrusy with a candy coating.

Upon the first taste you realize this is unapologeticaly a Colorado beer with its big, "meaty" hops, a perfect splash of citrus, and the right amount of sweetness.

Lies on the heavy side of medium in body, but smooth going down. I can feel this one on my stomach afterwards, so plan accordingly if you're pairing with food or going out for the night.

While this beer falls in line with the crowd just enough to play the game, it carefully avoids the fatal trap of replication, and comes out on top by doing so.

Poured from a 12oz. brown bottle into my Russian River shaker "pint" glass. Appears a mildly cloudy, golden orange color with about a finger of off-white head that sticks around, leaving a nice lace on the glass. Smells of floral, lemony hops, piney hops and a touch of sweet caramel malt. Tastes of bitter citrus such as lemon and grapefruit, as well as some pineapple and sweet malts. Medium in both body and carbonation. I was fortunate enough to receive six bottles of this through various trades and I am not complaining.

Chilled bottle into a glass. An extra from antlerwrestler19. Thanks!

From notes.

A: Pours a burnt sunset orange, completely opaque. It is capped with a quickly-vanishing off-white head.

S: Great aroma of peach, pineapple, tangerine; completely unexpected. This hits my tropical fruit fetish pretty well. Mild malt nose that produces a general sweetness.

T: Toasted malt that is quickly overtaken by the tropical fruits in the nose, as well as a small weed-like pine needle flavor that emerges in the finish.

M: Medium-bodied with low-medium carbonation. It gives the beer a velvety feel.

O: This would be a great thing to have locally. Quite an excellent beer.
