From a single 12 oz can. piney bitterness, some grapefruit rind, some tart juiciness, solid but unobtrusive bready and caramalt backbone. Looks great in the glass, kind of glowering hazy apricot, with a good 1 1/2 finger head. Nose is a little more muddled than the taste. Feel is great: crisp, bitter, moderate body, dry at the end. Used to find beers with this flavor profile all the time before neipas took over. But this one is a fine example of the type: not too heavy on the grapefruit and the bitterness is bright instead of heavy and sticky.

A top WC IPA in Colorado. Pine, citrus, bitter, dry and clear. If that is your jam, this is where it’s at.

I got a can of this beer from my bestie from Charlotte, NC whom got it from a beer of the month club mixed pack. It poured a hazy golden with white head that is leaving some lace. The scent had dank ripe fruit notes with subtle pine hop highlights. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with dank mild citrus fruit base and gentle bitter hop finish. The mouthfeel was lighter in body and had good carbonation. Overall it is a great beer.

12 oz can, dated 9/14/20, into Prairie Rastal.

Look : Just a nearly perfect honey-orange glow with tinges of blonde. The head is tall and creamy and white. Webbed lacing from its 3 finger head just obliterating the glass. It doesn't get much better than this.

Aroma : Strawberries and mangoes waft up to the nose with a wonderful crisp caramel malt base behind it. Hints of lychee, pot, pear, grapefruit, and melon. It is just so juicy and bright and balanced, it's incredible.

Flavor : Lemon zest starts this off in a big way, massive...with some grapefruit zest not far behind it. A nip of ruby red grapefruit. Notes of clipped grass, cannabis, and woody pine follow with some orange oil and orange flesh. The caramel malt lays underneath but gets lost in the hop assault. The bitter resins hang on mercilessly, coating the tongue with perfume. As it gets further away from ice cold, the caramel malt breathes a little more and you get a bit more pipe bowl.

Feel is crisp and tight, with a huge resinous finish. Not necessarily clean but not dirty either. Scrubs the tongue quite a bit. Lots of resin. Moderate alcohol heat. Numbing. Lots of resins. Did I say that? I'll say it again.

Overall, a palate scrubbing wonder child that is worth a hard look. I enjoyed this beer, but it's kind of a one-and-done for me. The look and smell were out of this world, but once it hit my lips it was obvious nothing else was going to be tasted on this numb tongue for a good while. Those hop oils are just downright punishing. Still worth a gander.

Price paid : $1.89 / can
Would buy again : maybe

Poured into a tulip.
Look: Hazy gold. Got about 2 fingers of nice white creamy foam. Persisted for a while. When it finally thinned out it left a nice frothiness on the surface. Nice lacing as it was drank.
Smell: I can't discern one hop variety from another but you get a nose full of hops. Pine, resin and citrus. It is awesome.
Taste: Again I can't tell different hop varieties but Ii get pine and citrus on top. Many delicious hops flavors come in with those. However no single one overpowers the other so you get a lot of flavor in a drink.
Feel: I would say just shy of medium mouth feel. Fairly dry. Very good carbonation. There is not a huge after taste with this. You get a little bit of hop bitterness at the end but it is not offensive in any way.
Overall: I went into my local spirit store looking for a new ale to try. this was on the top shelf next to the last new one I tried. This was very good. I would make this a regular tenant in my beer fridge.

Can sat out of fridge for about 30 minutes in it’s 6’er. Still felt nicely cold though.

A nice light beige 3F head develops upon pouring into a tulip glass. Loose lace forms from the high mark as the head settles into a 1F soft island. Color is mostly cloudy and deep yellow with little transparency. Kind of unusual for a non hazy non NE IPA.

Nose hits with a good amount of pine mixed with grapefruit and floral notes on a whiff of bread.

Taste is creamy and soft with a fruity malt and a mid level amount of bitterness in the form of subtle grass, yup the smokeable kind, pine, and grapefruit notes. Some other citrus & tropical fruits are embedded in the beer but too subtle to ID for me, maybe some lemon. Also there is a bit of a sulfur note that I pick up as it gets warmer, like onion.

Carbonation is fine yet medium in mouthfeel with some bubbly tang to balance the slippery malty. Body comes across as medium with some thickening on the finish. The bitter notes although not too strong seem to last for quite a while almost like a mild acidic or metallic aftertaste. Perhaps the beer got a bit too warm, but still very enjoyable.

Yet another very interesting IPA. The tang and aftertaste on the finish are quite different. I will have to update my thoughts when I have a cold one at another time. Still quite tasty overall. EDIT: After a second can this time fridge cold, the impression remain mostly the same, and overall a bit too acidic and bitter for me. Downgraded. Can 3 - Big negative is the pot smoke taste note, big putoff.

On tap. Poured out a clear, golden color with a small, off-white head of foam. It smelled of grapefruit, pineapple and toasted caramel. Sweet tropical fruit taste with subtle piney bitterness and caramel.

Light copper colored with a half inch of creamy dishwater white on top. The aroma is of pine and light malt. Moderate lacing. I’m tasting restrained pine and green vegetables. The mouth is lightly sticky and dry.

From recent notes on a trip to Boulder, Colorado. Poured into a medium sized, shaker style kitchen glass. Pours a light to moderately hazy, medium coppery amber with a one finger white head with good retention and lacing.Aroma of citrus and tropical hops, grapefruit, mango, mixed tropicals. Flavor is similar, pale malt, grapefruit and rind, mixed tropical fruit with hints of mango and pineapple and a little white grape. Moderately bitter finish. Medium bodied with light creaminess. Another hazy leaning IPA with mixed tropical and citrus character, this one leaning towards citrus flavors. Nice balance of fruit flavors and a satisfactory level of hop bitterness. Solid, flavorful IPA.

Look - a deep yellow / almost orange - a 1-2 finger head with a pretty hefty pour that dissipated quickly - lots of lacing and foam around the outside though

Smell - Pine / Cattiness / Mangoes - decent aromatics - slightly sweet caramel

Taste - Huge blast of catty hops with a moderate level of bitterness - pine trees with sticky sap ooze in quickly - some sweet malt and almost agave syrup slip in while turning more towards mangoes and peaches - it does dry out towards the end and all flavors meld together at the end / teaming up together to create an interesting aftertaste

Feel - Medium bodied but felt a bit thin to me - it should be a bit thicker and more oily with so much hoppiness - could use a bit more carbonation as well

Overall - A very enjoyable beer from 4N. I am only about 1.5 hours from this brewery but haven't been. If their beers are this good, it has definitely been my loss. I must make a trip up to the Denver area. I think this IPA will please all IPA lovers / hop heads.

Pours a typical west coast IPA color, a golden amber.
Smell is pine with notes of tropical fruit.
The taste is nice and bitter throughout, but you have a nice complex flavor of citrus, pineapple, and pine/earthiness hanging around with just enough sweetness.
Goes down clean and easy, quite refreshing.
This is a very solid west coast ipa, wished I had more!

Well fellow beer lovers, it's 'bout damn time for another beer review. I was going to do The Amalgamator next, but my last can got consumed and I haven't found it anywhere since. Conveniently, this is also 7.1% alcohol, which reminded me of reviewing beer. It's also about the tastiest West Coast style IPA that I've had since moving here.

L: Pours a sightly hazy golden orange with no visible sediment. Jagged and profuse lacing formed an image of a snowy peak on the glass. Can is a beautiful metallic green, with a cool hoppy clock graphic.

S: Typical fruity West Coast hop aromas of orange, mango and pineapple are noted first. Star fruit, red grape and gala apple are present in the middle, with an herbal greenness, like loroco, and a sweet bread note with some rye pepperiness on the finish.

T: Super juicy with notes of orange, ruby red grapefruit, and pineapple at first. An oxidized planty loroco note fills the middle. This was much less notable a month ago, but this beer is now about 70 days from canning and it shows.

F: Super smooth with a rich texture that clearly comes from not being filtered. I like IPAs to have a good strong bite though, and this has almost none.

O: Great IPA, definitely highly recommended, especially if fresh.

A fantastic Colorado IPA. Has balance, good acidity, floral citrus and pine aromas and flavors, great carbonation, keeps good head and nice glass lacing. One of my usual purchases for a reason.
