The aroma is hoppy and the taste is bitter. The color is a dark brown, maybe with a little bit of red tint to it. Pretty smooth.

I split a bomber of this with a buddy and I was completely surprised. The color was yellow with a stark white head. The smell was a little fruity. The taste was pineapple and caramel. The mouthfeel was the best part of this beer, very creamy. Delicious beer, give me more. Oh, and at $3 a bottle, very reasonable.

Tap @ Backcountry. Light amber with an off white head. Big citrus, pine resin and floral hop aroma, wow, really nice. Medium bitterness with typical malt sweetness and lots of hop flavor. Medium body with active carbonation and a fairly dry finish, just a touch of residual sweetness. I was really surprised to find such a great fresh IPA here.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle thanks to popkas. Poured a clear amber gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a clear musty pine note with a bit of underlying hay. Flavor had the same musty pine note that was a little off putting with a slight grain finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bomber purchased at the Liquor store on Summit Drive in Frisco, Colorado (Antler’s). Pour is dark golden, copper with a two inch well formed white head. Head is quite lasting, and falls with nice lace. Aroma was immediate bitterness of pine and floral, though the hop is a bit muted, and is melded nicely with a caramel toasted malt. Nice balance for an IPA, reminds me of more of a British IPA. Taste is the nose, though a bit less clean - balance of caramel toasted malt, along with the pine and floral hops. Finish is dry and bitter. Palate is medium bodied, a bit oily, and a nice bitter after taste. Nice enough.
