On tap in a pint glass at Falling Rock Tap House in Denver.

Appearance - Amber hue with good clarity.

Smell - Citrus awesomeness.

Taste - Close to perfection of the style.

Mouthful - Medium body. Medium carbonation.

Overall - I prefer this over Pliny...

Bottle poured into Russian River nonic pint glass

A: Pours deep golden yellow with a frothy off white head that hangs around a while and laces well.

S: Citrus and pine hops dominate the nose, with a very light malt sweetness behind.

T: Big citrus hops up front, grapefruit tangerine and a touch of lemon and lime, some pine, with a just enough malt backbone.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, very crisp and drinkable.

O: While it isn't Pliny, it still holds it's own as a very tasty IPA. More than happy to review this one for my 100th on BA.
