Served On-Tap

A — Pours a coppery orangeish hue with a billowy off-white colored head to it, leaving behind some nice quality lacing.

S — Smells nicely pungent and hoppy, slightly juicy tropical overtones initially, leads way to a piney and bitter astringent hop note.

T — Taste is nice and much like the nose, loads of tropical pineapple, mango, lemon, and juicy, leading way to a bitter and piney finish.

M — Medium bodied, clean and crisp, with a lingering clean finish.

O — Great overall, perhaps the best I've had from TRVE.

when this beer first came out, it was one of the only ones in denver to have this tropical hop complexion, it was very new to my palate at the time, and i loved it. revisiting it last night, i was somewhat less impressed with it, although it still has that hop complexion that i remember, its just less distinct than it used to be. there has to be some citra or even some nelson going on in this, it has that sweet oily tropicality and brightness to it, but in this case its also extremely bitter. its neat because the hops have basically no interference from the malt, its so light in grain character that the hops are really the only flavor agent. i used to like that better than i do now, it seems just a tad one dimensional as a result, but the texture is awesome. its oily from the hops, west coast style, but its not overly big in the body, in the abv, or in the sweetness that lingers. its sort of a coastal fusion, very colorado, very drinkable. carbonation is great, its really flush on the palate, refreshing. one of the better beers that isnt a wild ale here at trve.

Redoing my review, since its grown on me more since initially reviewing.

Pours a yelly golden with a white head. Aroma is oily and resinous, lemon and its peel, pine. Taste follows suit. Mouthfeel is one of the most unique aspects of this beer, medium to fuller bodied, active and silky creamy. Overall, a great beer. Gets better every time I try it. One of my top 3 IPA's in Colorado.

On tap at the brewery, this was totally off. Aroma had hints of butter (diacetly?). The flavor was more butter and then a distinct rubbery band-aid medicinal flavor. Completely diverged from the description on the menu and to be honest probably not something that should be served. I would have sent it back but I feel like I also should have ordered a sample before committing to a full pint. Disappointing.

Update 02/2014

A trvly awful beer.

On-tap at their bar.

A: Dull copper color, at least from I could tell in the dim lighting. Very nice head and excellent retention. Sticky lacing around the glass.

S: Piney, fresh hops give a great aroma. Not too much malt in the nose.

T: Great hop flavor from "C" hops. Very light malt backbone, but works well.

M: Carbonation was just right, medium-bodied. Drinks great.

O: I really enjoy this one. I walk down to get my growler filled almost every month.
