Poured from a 12oz can

The look is a light amber to gold, with a very light haze, almost crystal clear. On the pour there was a nice 2 finger head which slowly dissapates into a medium thin cap that leaves lacing. Good looking

Smell is resinous and piney with a hint of grapefruit. Not a lot of beer smell it's largely covered by the hops but some malt sweetness gets through. Its a very nice smell, definitely an ipa.

Taste is a bit different than the smell but it's very similar. Bitterness right up front. And malt residing solidly at the back. As the beer warms the citruis grows, and it becomes very grapefruit like, but still not juicy, very resinous. If I was more into hops I'd say it's a good refreshing ipa.

Feel is relatively light, but still present enough in the mouth to bring it to just the right balance of creamy lightness to keep it refreshing but full flavored and solid at the same time. A crafty afternoon work beer, but big enough to make itself known.

Overall am ipa right in the middle of the road but still somehow making its point without compromise. West coast with a splash of juice keeping it bitter, but not too strong and good for almost any time but especially as a refresher.

Pours a translucent gold. Piney nose. Strong notes of pine and maybe pineapple? Lacking the hop bite I was hoping for. Canned 12/3/21.

12 fl. oz. bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Golden colour, big white head. Nice aroma of fruity and floral hops. The flavour is disctinctly hoppy throughout - plenty of American grapefruity and resinous hops, some malty sweetness in the middle, bitter finish and aftertaste. Quite good.

Clear amber appearance with an average size white head and good lacing. Heavy dose of resinous hops in the aroma with a herbal note on the edge. Citrusy hop taste, dominated by grapefruit. Medium-bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel. "Malty finish"? Maybe buried deep on the aftertaste. The only balance seems to be with the variety of hops. Crisp, bitter, lingering finish. Very drinkable.

For me, probably the best traditional IPA in Colorado (tied with Comrade Superpower). It's everything the style should be.

A simple 1F soft off white head forms upon pouring from a can into a tulip glass. Streaky lace forms as you drink and the color is a nice gold at about 90% transparency.

The aroma is mild with some citrus notes and a bit of earthy roasted grain.

Taste starts with a dark hop forward light bitterness and then a smooth light malt fullness on the sides of the tongue. The hop note reminds me of lightly charred grapefruit pith, that has just a bit of mild astringency as it lingers. The malt is not sweet and seems to be there to add body and to tame the hops a bit. Definitely a hop forward balance, but not too bitter and not piney.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Carbonation is just a bit tangy and helps cut the mild astringent hop bitterness but it still leaves a residual thickness after the taste.

I was expecting a bit more dankness based on their description. It is a nice IPA that finishes just a bit thick for me. Overall a good beer, but it may not make it into my rotation as I am finding my palate more attracted to a bit more malt.

This ranks a solid GOOD as defined by BA.

Definitely shows its malty side immediately. As soon as you pour the malty odor lingers from the glass. Light on hops but heavy on character. Good beer. Not typical IPA

Almost clear, light gold with one finger creamy head. Tropical fruit and citrus, with floral and pine in the nose. The flavor is more citrus and pine, with some spice and a little neutral malt. Sweet and bitter with a medium to full mouthfeel.
