2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Produces a burnished copper and sparkling. Head is soppy, sudsy and depletes to a wafer of white. Levelled flat is the nose. Honey, toffee, piney and just plain pine forest with a mere whiff of lemongrass, butter, and menthol. Menthol, smoke, burnt rubber, toffee and rough, damp, bitter herbs fulfil the palate. There is a lick of fruit but it is caramelised and bitter. Length is burnt, acrid bitter citrus. Body is lean, juicy fruit juice in feel with very soft carbonation. Bitter finish doesnít fit. Not fresh or a bad batch, but not the best in all aspects. (12fl.Oz can, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

I've liked everything I've had from Big Sky. I love IPAs. I should like this, but I don't. I can't place my finger on why I don't, but I don't have to justify myself to you. Don't act like you know me.

Montana is beautiful first off and this beer is the same. Really nice dark amber color. Aroma is earth, grassy, exactly what I would expect a beer from Montana to be like. Taste is bitter with the same earthy grassy notes but it works. This isnít like a west coast IPA or honestly any other one out there. It just kind of is its own thing and it think thatís what makes it so good. Iím loving this and definitely try this if you can get Big Sky.

Sample bottle from Denver. Cheers mate! Just before the 3 month mark so fairly happy with that considering we are in Aus. Itís a fairly dark amber for an IPA. Nose is sticky and resinous with a load of toffee and pine. A little too malt driven as far as I like my IPAís. Mediocre

A Brilliant American IPA. I have tried them all and this is right up there with the best, if not the best. Clean fresh and flavoursome. Highly recommended.

Bottle at the airport. Pours a clear copper color with a lacing white head. Nice, hoppy aroma with a bitter grapefruit finish. Amazing, tart, hoppy taste. Very smooth with a little tangy fruit in there. A really good IPA.

Lots of pine, grapefruit. Slight malt backbone. Full bodied, very good IPA.
