12 oz. Can

Pours a nice yellow color, nice carbonation, with a pretty nice small off-white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with some citrus. The taste is hoppy, malty, citrusy. Medium body, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.

Thanks Drevis.
Subdued aroma for style with a doughy and earthy quality (that reminds me of citra, but according to the website it is not) to the hop aroma.
Quite light colored for style too with a pale gold and mostly clear. Smallish head settled down.
Immediate hop bit that very quickly moves to a prominent bitterness that lingers a good long time and really seems to dominate. Some of the bits of doughiness and some earthiness, and some fruitiness (a bit of citrus and some tartness). Complexity increases some with warming, but it doesn't seem in a hurry to get there.
Body is a bit thin and fully carbonated.
Pretty standard fare.

My kind of IPA right here. Reddish copper color, assertive hoppiness, very smooth. Loved it as my go-to post ski beer in Telluride.

Dark copper colored with a half inch of frothy beige foam on top. Heavy lacing. Aroma is an aggressive burst of citrus hops and biscuit light malt. The taste is sharply bitter citrus hops and light biscuit malt is apparent at the back of the palate. The mouth is dry and lightly sticky.

Fairly resiny, dank, earthy aroma, with muted citrus notes.

Flavor is resiny throughout, with a moderately bitter finish. The light caramel malt and muted citrus add complexity. Becomes catty as it warms, but I still like the malt and hop balance.
