This was a beer that was available in cans at Coor's Field in Denver during a baseball game. I figured this one would be a perfect Colorado Rockies baseball game beer so I decided to try it. This beer features a white, frothy head that dissipates rather slowly to a thin lacing, along with moderate carbonation that is easily visible. The beer itself is clear and golden amber in color. 4/5 The aroma is very typical of the american IPA style with pine resin leading the way. There is a bit of buttered white bread that showcases the malt as well as a bit of herbal hops that act as an undertone to the pine resin. The aroma is very simple and straightforward, but very good and enjoyable. 4/5 The flavor is every bit like the aroma with a very light caramel sweetness and buttered white bread leading the way up front before transitioning to a very strong pine resin and herbal hop characteristics that truly take over the flavor of the beer and are quite strong. 3.75/5 The body is fairly light with a light carbonation tickle up front that dissipates fairly quickly. Surprisingly smooth rather than crisp and drying throughout with lingering drying after swallowing. 4/5 This is a good western representation of the american IPA with pine resin being the showcase hop but with other notes that round out the hoppiness. Very refreshing but drying as well. Easy to sit down with and enjoy for a while. 4/5

DATE: July 23, 2016... OCCASION: a great pool day concludes with the end of Season Four of Game of Thrones... GLASSWARE: Kisatsky Tavern pint... hazy, orange amber body displays a sensible carbonation... the two-finger thick white head sits confidently and creamily atop the body with dense clouds of lacing... melon, pineapple, citrus and flowery aromatics engage the senses agreeably--the crisp bread malts suggest balance, with the strength of an IPA... a strong, well-bodied ale, with a convincingly sweet aftertaste... caramel and bread form a substantial backbone for a beer with hoppy strength, slight spruce and grapefruit, melon, and pineapple--indeed, a worthy banquet of a beer... this one was worth tracking down, as it satisfies from start to finish, with a strong, lively, creamy body, a round array of citrus and malt, and a flavorful finish,,,
