12 oz. Can

Pours a pretty nice yellowish/orange color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy/foamy white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, kinda malty, with some citrus. The taste is hoppy, malty, citrus/pine. Medium body. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.

Bought a 6pk cans in Denver. No dates indicated...
Pours a dk.gold, hazy. Head is REAL big and creamy.
Given the great head, it is weird that the beer appears and tastes flat. Very little bubble action in the glass, no carbonation on the tongue.
Nice hop aromas and resiny flavors. Not astringent, bitterness is clean. Excellent lacing on the glass.
For my tastes, 8% abv is great, even though that is somewhat light for DIPA style. Booze doesn't dominate.

Main real complaint is the inadequate carbonation.

Picked this up at total beverage because I had not tried it yet. Drinking from the can the aroma is pine needle and malt. Not a bad taste but just ok for a DIPA. Drinking good for the 8% abv but would not buy again.

Got a pint at the brewery and picked up a four pack of cans to bring home and share in San Diego. Pretty tasty. West coast IPA style. Not super hoppy. Was sweeter than I was expecting. Not the best IPA I've had but I definitely liked it and will stop in for more next time I'm in Lone Tree.

22 oz bottle. Pours clear golden orange with a small frothy white head that goes to a thin film and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is subdued - peppery, piney hops with some metallic notes.

The flavor is sweet sugary bready malts with tropical fruit and some catty piney hops. The mouthfeel is light bodied and watery.

Overall, an OK DIPA. It's a bit subdued and not up my alley.

Personally not a pale ale fan, but this was put in front of me. Better than most pale ales I've had so I have to give it a decent score.
