3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dominant bitterness with lots of pine take over right from the start and does not let anything else through. Not a bad brew by any standards but a little too one-sided.

This was a very solid beer. Nice hoppy flavors with a sweet finish. I really enjoyed this beer, especially after climbing Independence Pass.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can thanks to northernbrews for sharing. Clear gold pour with a thin ring of head. Aroma is somewhat faint but nice. Pulpy orange juice, grapefruit and light tropical fruit. Tastes like pulpy orange juice but with thinner body. The grapefruit complements it well and there’s a hint of flowers in the finish. Pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can: Thanks, Jeff. Cloudy burnt amber color with a small off-white film that settles as a moderately foamy collar. Aroma is mildly floral with bits of orange flesh & grapefruit peel, you can definitely get the Cascade. Slightly juicy with a very mild tropical essence. Light, wet grass. Taste is pretty juicy as well; nice gushing orange, mango, & grapefruit flavors are balanced with a slightly herbal, ashy, & grassy hop back-end. Lingering white pepper covered grapefruit peel finish, almost like Centennial. Slightly oily body. Pretty nice.

Bottle: The aroma consists of light-moderate citrus, perfume, and grass. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a small soapy white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with citrus and a touch of fruit. He finish has grapefruit, faint floral notes, and a touch of dankness. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation.

12 oz can purchased at Aspen Wine and Spirits in Aspen, Colorado. The pour is a hazed orange golden with a small, well formed light tan head. The aroma is citrus pineapple fruit, touch of pine, earth, and a toasted malt. The taste is a nice balance between the toasted malt as well as the bright fresh tropical citrus fruit, the pine and general hop bitterness. Bit of residual sweetness. The palate is medium bodied, soft natural carbonation, and a dry lightly bitter finish. Easy drinking, nice IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can poured a clear orange hue w/ a large beige head. Moderate orange aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a mild bitter finish of short duration. Tastes are tangerine, orange, sugar, and grass. Medium bodied, pleasant mouthfeel, and soft carbonation. This beer is delicious, but awful sweet for an IPA maybe the yeast wasn’t hungry enough.
