Split a sixer with my cousin Michelle's husband Rob. He drank it first and, as a new microbrew drinker, loved it. I tried it the next day, during the 2017 US Figure Skating championships in Kansas City, Missouri. It was excellent and a pleasant surprise, since I was trying beers from the area. Highly recommend!

Now this was surprisingly great! The menu at a restaurant had very limited beer but I remembered hearing about this one and ordered it. I was pleasantly surprised. Great IPA: piney, hoppy, floral, citrus. Everything I would want.

A fairly clear tangerine with bubbles rising fast and a finger of off white soapy head that fades slowly to a ring. Spotty lacing. Pretty big orange in the aroma, caramel malt, some lemon, white bread crust. Citrus/orange/lemon bitter bite right off the bat followed by a nice caramel malt wave, and a lingering sweetness that works well with that bitter bite. Nice full carbonation, dry, and medium body. Nice IPA because you get waves of different things happening through each swig.

It's a reliable beer, but considering the wealth of beer in Colorado it's not the best. The good thing is that in Colorado at least, it's widely available and affordable.

Hazy pale amber with one finger of bone color head that lasts about ten minutes. Rings of lace.
Smell is hop resin citrus and slight leather.
Taste is rich bready malts piney resinous citrus zest .
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated. Finish is moderately dry and bitter.
Overall a very tasty well crafted American IPA. Glad I found this beer.

This beer pours a clear gold with a large head. The aroma offers medium light malts, orange peel, grapefruit peel, pine, and earthy tones. The flavor again has a mild malt characteristic, with grapefruit, pineapple, orange peel, with pine on the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and foamy. Overall this is a nice, classically flavored IPA.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "best by" date 1-12-17.

APPEARANCE: pours a clear, copper color with one-finger white head that slowly dissipated until a thin, unbroken layer of small bubbles remained, there is significant lacing on the glass, medium carbonation.

SMELL: bread, caramel, pine and citrus.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet caramel and bread then an oily, pine hop profile that lingered.

PALATE: medium body and carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a very good traditional IPA, I would buy this again and would recommend to anyone who enjoys the style.
