"Best by 03/7/15." 104 IBUs. 12 fl oz brown glass bottle with appealing label and branded pry-off pressure cap purchased as part of a variety 12-pack and served cold into a stem-tulip at high altitude in Castle Rock, CO. Reviewed live as an IPA per the label.

No bubble show forms as it's poured.

HEAD: 3 fingers wide. White colour. Nice creaminess and thickness. Has a full even consistency and a soft complexion. Light lacing sticks to the sides of the glass as the head recedes. Head retention is good - about 6-7 minutes.

BODY: Clear translucent vibrant copper-orange of above average vibrance. Clean; no yeast particulate or hop sediment is visible.

Appears well-carbonated. Not unique or special looking, but good for the style.

AROMA: Pale malts. Floral hop notes. Hints of lime. Tangerine. Mango. Bursts of tropical fruit. Fresh citrusy zest. Clean barley.

It's very pleasant and inviting, lacking any hop bite. Aromatic intensity is mild.

This aroma suggests a balanced brew with complementary hops and malts.

No yeast, alcohol, or off-notes are detectable.

TASTE: Citrusy zest. Tropical fruit. Tangerine, mango, clementine, ruby red grapefruit, pale malts, a dash of caramalt, clean barley, and lime. It's well-balanced and the flavour profile is cohesive, but it doesn't quite taste like a gestalt immutable whole. Not the most complex or intricate IPA I've tried, but it's tasty, and has a nice depth of flavour.

Average flavour duration and intensity. Not real subtle; the notes are pretty overt.

TEXTURE: Irritatingly coarse and dry where it should be smooth and wet. Overcarbonated. Rough and dragging on the palate. Unrefreshing. Medium-bodied. Aptly thick.

Not oily, gushed, hot, boozy, or astringent.

OVERALL: Drinkable and enjoyable for an IPA, with some nice hop flavours. But the mouthfeel is very problematic. It's what you'd expect from a variety pack beer. I'm glad I tried it once, but I wouldn't go out of my to nab it again. It'll find its fans.

The beer had a lemony peach aroma that smell wonderful.
The beer has an off yellow say dirty yellow gold appearance with about a fingers worth of head.
The taste has hints of grapefruit and other citrus flavor and is easy to drink. Very good

Gold with a runaway wait for it to simmer down head. Huge iceberg dollop of foam floats around until my beer is done. Strong juicy fruit aroma with a floral tint. Hop flavors are ample but mild in comparison to the scent: I get creamy peach and grapefruit gelato with a very mild pithy bitter in back. Body is wonderfully light and creamy as well.

I like the easy handedness of this IPA. It's not a west coast bitter bomb, it's not balanced caramel-y east coast - it's somewhere in between in. That works stylistically and geographically; how apropos.

2nd time drinking this beer, once fresh, now I'm having one that I've aged in the fridge for around a year, plan on having the other on new years. good beer, gets a lot less bitter with time but still holds a good flavor even if its been "expired" since April 0f 14.

10/20...pours hazy copper, lighter, partial see through. Thick heavy patchy white foam. Snow drifts. Hearty oily pine tree nose. Light open taste, thin, malty, water, bursts then into a bitterly finished close. Grapefruits, rinds. Crisp. Really good.
