Really one of the best IPAs around. Hop forward with low malt. The nose is very tropical and dank. The High Abv is perfectly hidden. It could pass for a double IPA (batch 2 is 8%) but it doesn't taste like a double at all (kind of like Pliny). I love this beer. I love proboscis but this overtook it for me.

when i moved to colorado about five years ago now, we really didnt have a definitive ipa, i mean, there was modus and titan and a handful of others, but we lacked a hoppy beer identity a little bit i think. now we have a ton of good micro ones, and this now has to be near the top of the list. a pretty classic west coast style absolutely dripping with juicy hops. its honey colored and holds a full inch of white head, great clarity. the nose turns me on, lemony hops, citra and maybe some simcoe, very citrus driven, mouthwatering even. the grain base isnt super light either, there is some body and some dry crackery element from the pale barley. its also a little sturdier in abv, which i think is appropriate in this brew. the hops make it though, i think more mosaic in the flavor maybe, it has that tropical quality with the citrus from the aroma, very fruity and juicy, but still also plenty bitter as it moves toward the finish. good carbonation and just a little oily hop derived sweetness as it closes. overall an awesome ipa, i would put this on par with some of the odd13 and comrade stuff as the best colorado india pale ales in the game right now. its that good.

12 oz can. Pours extremely hazy yellow gold with a big fluffy white head that retains well and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is perfumey malts with fruity resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet fruity malt with a big dank resiny bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a nice fruity resiny IPA.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a New Belgium Globe Glass. Thanks to EvanMa for this one

This beer pours a golden straw color that is nearly clear with just the slightest hint of haze. There is about a fingers worth of light frothy head that recedes quickly, leaving behind just the slightest hint of lacing...

The aroma is fairly light and is comprised mostly of tropical fruit, and some citrus. While it is quite pleasing and inviting it is much lighter than I am used to for a good IPA

The flavor is a bit more robust than the aroma; lots of tropical fruit and bitter orange peel. Fairly "juicy" and "dank", which is surprising given the lackluster aroma. I also get a generic malt flavor; not necessarily biscuity or bready, but sweetish and pleasant.

The beer is medium bodied and moderately carbonated, making the beer very well balanced, and quite easy to drink.

Overall, the beer is quite pleasant and leaves me wanting another. This is an everyday, easy drinking, IPA. I could see myself going through a six pack and not even realizing it. Good Beer

Thanks EvanMa

First time Colorado visitor here, and this was highly recommended at every bottle shop I went to when I asked for a solid Colorado IPA. Pour is a semi hazy golden orange pour, big frothy head that lasts for the whole session. Piney resinous aroma, slight tropical notes such as melon, citrus zest and kiwi. Following the aroma well, it has a nice west coast hop forward taste. Resinous pine in the back end, not much maltiness detected at all. Solid offering!
