2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a very hazy reddish orange with a sticky white head out of a 16 oz can. Very nice can. initial hoppy aroma gives way to a harsh load of acetaldehyde. it smells like a hopped up pumpkin in there. Flavor is somewhat sweet, but the harsh squashy bitterness comes through in the finish. Not very pleasant. Borderline drain pour. Bummer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark yellow to light amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (caramel/sugar, toasted grain), moderately to heavily hoppy (resin, grapefruit), with a light note of butter.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation.
A pretty generic/ordinary resin-bomb style IPA with a little bit of diacetyl. Forgettable but decent enough.

Tap at Freshcraft Denver - 03/06/12.
Copper amber colour with a medium white head.
Floral hops on the nose and a little malt, not a huge aroma.
Light malt flavour, some citrus, hops - as per the nose a little on the bland side but not unpleasant.
Medium bodied, a little watery, average, drinkable but forgettable !

I had this on tap into a pint glass...The beer pours a super dark honey gold, good lacing and retention, a new sensation for me for an organic...The aroma is dead, I can’t pull out anything... The taste is light hops, but nothing close to living up to the 120 ibu it claims...Feel is ok, ok to drink.

I like this IPA. It isn’t overly bitter like most new IPAs. Very well balanced and delicious.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
draft. light cloudiness; amber body. mostly clean nose of fresh citrus and lightly sweet pine hops. medium-light body, decent carbonation, light caramel sweetness, clean yeast. hop-driven, fresh citrus, pine and bubble gum. surprisingly good considering i’ve had this in the past and found it full of faults. it appears they’ve dialed this one in.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at brewery. Slightly burnt yellow orange body that’s fairly clear with a light white head. Some piney hops in the nose but not that strong. Citrusy hoppy flavor with a nice pale body. Well done.
