Dirty gold color with a chill haze. Lasting, thick head which leaves chunky rings of lace on the glass.

Attractive floral hop aroma. Light earthiness with a bit of cut grass.

Light toasted malt as the base. The hop is strong but not overwhelming. The body leans to the rich but the carbonation is also high. Bitter finish with a long-lasting aftertaste. Overall, a very good example of an American IPA.

On tap at Humpy’s. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking hazy orange to brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing roaming here and there. The smell had a good sticky citrus bitterness to it. Light piney - ness enters in as it warmed. The taste was basically the same as the smell. Light sweet piney aftertaste lead to a dry sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for me and for the style. Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA that I could do again.

lots to love about this one for me. the can is awesome, with the whole top removed by the pull tab, i think thats a great way to drink a beer like this. the beer is hoppy in a subtle sort of way, i mean its big on flavor, but there is a wonderful dryness, freshness, and sort of vanishing act in the finish that is really unique. i almost taste the water, its purity, mineral content, and crispness, and that interacts with the hops in a cool way. they are pungent and bitter and piney up front, but descend into the finish, gone really abruptly. lighter malt base has a slight toasted element to it but it also very clean, and there is a juicy quality to the hops in the middle that goes great with it. this is an absolute crusher of an ipa though for me, being so dry and mild as they go, it drinks amazingly satisfyingly, but also sort of delicately too. i have never really experienced this trajectory in an ipa before, and i really liked it. huge thanks to my buddy for bringing down so many cool alaska beers with him to colorado on his trip. this was one of my favorites of the lot so far! memorable ipa for me.

Hazed bronze gold color with a thin finger of airy white head. Dank, resiny aroma with pine and citrus notes. More muted flavor that's otherwise largely the same. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Heavy mouthfeel. Nothing out of this world, but decent enough.

Orangey amber body. Medium opacity. Decent little rusty off cream head that settles into halfway soapy bubbbbllbels.

As soon as I pop off hte top of the can (!) an incredible aroma of sweet and fruity hops. Dank and piney underneath. Some almost honeysuckle nectar sweetness weaves through as well.

Pine and floral sweet jump out immediately. Dank and nectar together. Medium thickness and carbonation that brings out the other characteristics without really making itself noticeable/distracting. I definitely dig it

Overall, this is a solid IPA. It has a really nice hop profile. However, it is just a little to malt forward for my tastes. I would like to try it on draft vs cans. That being said, the full pop top cans are awesome.
