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.

Poured from a week old can into a glass. Not much of a nose, caramel malty sweet with very light hops. Tastes like a light version of Hopslam lacking the booze.

Received this can fresh from a friend. Poured a dark amber color. Immediately smelled dark fruits and a bit of bathroom cleanser. This beer was incredibly malty with a remarkably dull hop character. Maybe it was just an off can, but this was very disappointing and really lacked any characteristics that you would expect from any style of IPA.

Can picked up on my Montana travels... Pours a hazy orange/amber with a nice long lasting head... Overall this is an excellent IPA with a pervasive pithy citrus hoppiness in the aroma and the flavor, but it also has a pretty heavy malt presence including some background caramel malt that I personally think distracts from the hops. I like my IPA's more hop forward and the malt playing 2nd fiddle... But my tastes aside, this is a damn good beer.
