You can’t beat a local like this. Great flavor, nice and frothy. The growler refills are $10.50, that’s a little over $2.60 a 16oz. Amazing!

Wonderful hop freshness, A balanced N.W. style IPA. Great bitterness without hiding the nice malt charactor. A benchmark!

While hunting around Colorado for a landing spot, we discovered Amicas in Salida Colorado. It was part of our decision to move to the area. And the IPA is one of their best. My taste buds detected a nice rye flavor (reminding me of one of my other favorites, Terrapin Rye PA). It has a wonderful hop aroma typical of a good west coast IPA. We’ll definitely be back many times to enjoy this beer.

Draft pint at the brewpub, 9/14/06: Nice amber color with a shiny sheen. Not much aroma, but it delivers a nice wood-chippy hoppiness. Quite delicious.

Clear golden with a thin white foamy cap. Lovely floral and leafy fresh hop nose with a touch of earthy dankness. Flavor is good and floral with a backing of grapefruit zest and orange rind, a little kiss of pine resin, earthy and leafy fresh bitterness, and a thick pale malt background.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clean copper pour. Small white head. Slight haziness. Strong, hop bittering aroma. Smoth hoppy taste with a short smoth punch at the end. Holds its carbonation well. Delish. Better than what you’re drinking right now.

This is the flagship of Amicas brews. Nice balance, good hops, reasonable malt. But, it is best after a bit of aging, and sometimes is released a little bit before its time. Every thing improves with time.

Simply tasty, poured off the tap at the brewpub in Salida. Mostly clear golden-amber pour with a thin white head. Wild aroma of pine and yellow citrus (perhaps even pineapple), overwhelmingly fresh smells. Flavor had a near-perfect balance of malty sweetness and powerful hop bitterness...again, the freshness came through quite clearly. A bit resiny with soft carbonation, but a gem hidden off the beaten path of the Front Range.

Salida, CO Beer Fest-tap-Pours a nice orange hue with minimal white head. decent lacing. Nice fresh hop aroma, just liked a harvest ale. Lots of green hops on the flavors. Malts are toasty and add decent balance to this IPA.

Clear and light golden. Moderate carbonation; decent body. Huge grapefruit ... tasty grapefruit notes, I might add. Very aromatic and wafty flowers, too. Huge resinous hops with a lingering bitterness. Nice. Sweet dough malts struggled for attention, with roasty caramel and a sweet, candy-like base. Nice IPA, I have to say. Alcohol was a nice additional element, also.
