Can from the Grapevine. Medium, clear amber, foamy head. Aroma is malty, bitter, leather. Taste brings in a bit of hoppiness, halfway citrus, halfway pine. Kind of generic

12 Oz can. No discernible bottling info

Pours a fairly solid copper body with a white head. Some visible carbonation. Decent retention and lacing

Smell is prominent at the pour, then dissipates a little. Hop forward pine with a little grass

The hops are still there but I'm tasting more malt then the smell produced. The overall taste is smoothed by the malts. A little sweetness. Nice balance with a hop bite on the finish. Very impressive !

Feel is lower medium. Not overly carbonated but it seems to fit

Value (does not effect score) at $7.99 a sixer (in Montana) it was a great value compared to all the other local offerings at the Three Forks supermarket

I really loved the taste. Great balance ! Old school IPA. My favorite Montana beer so far...

Sampling a cellar temp 12 oz can poured into a snifter. The beer is a clear copper color with creamy eggshell white head of 1 cm foaming up. The bubbles fade to a sturdy surface layer and leaves some scattered lattice after each sip I take.
The aroma is some pine sap and resin notes that mix together nicely, there is a bit of general astringent bitterness note too. the nose is kind of mild overall. Not any booze or really any malt on this hop forward beer.
First sip reveals an average body with gentle fizzy carbonation. Texture is smooth and rolls across palate easily on each swallow.
The flavor is what the nose advertises with just a hint of biscuit malt and then lots of pine sap and resin notes. The booze is hidden , but the hops linger with some aspirin bite long after each swallow.
This is a classic old school IPA. Nice to have some bite to a beer in this world of juice bombs.
Nice beer from Montana

Mediocre IPA. Slightly on the malty side. Was excited to try due to high rating but it was not up to expectations. Looked through some of the ratings and it appears some funny business may be going on with a bunch of very high 4 and some 5 ratings from BAs who have only rated a few (or sometimes even just 1) beers.

Nice and robust IPA with a little citrus cutting through the predominantly earthy aromas. Taste is primarily grassy and piney, with a decent hop bite. Big, crisp mouthfeel for the ABV.

Spicy with some fruit then more spice then lingering spice. The malt is nice and welcome. Pretty good the bitterness lingers a bit longer than i would prefer it does eventually become buttery however.

A very solid IPA if you like malt forward IPA's.
Hazy, deep orange color. Layered malt with a somewhat creamy and subtle hop finish.
Not your standard hop forward IPA, but this beer has it all. One of the best IPA's in Montana.
