This big, rich IPA features Simcoe hops which give it both a fruity, piney hop nose and a clean, ringing bitterness. IN-between, the malt flavor is slightly caramel for a touch of malt sweetness. This IPA is well-balanced and very expressive with hops.

Pours a deep copper color, quickly dissipating head. Aroma is fruity, and maltier than I’m accustomed to in an IPA. Very hoppy, hoppier than a lot of "IPAs" out there. Well balanced, would definitely recommend.

sickassmick (227) - Concord, California, USA - JAN 8, 2008
pours an ugly hazy brown amber with little head that dissipates quickly. full body and light lacing. The smell is very sweet and clean. The flavor is much better than I would have expected (no offense to montana, I have family there). The hops are all up front and don’t stay around on the mouth for too long, but this is a very hoppy beer none the less. I didn’t read any ratings before I bought this and 88 overall is probably just about right. What this is doing in the liquor store by my house I have no clue. There is a full row of them and all of them are dusty. If I had the money to do it I might clear the shelf! Props to Montana! good beer.

T2Tool (352) - Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Had on draft. Appeared a copper color. Aroma had a strong smell of hops with a slight citrus backing. The hop taste is balanced nicely with some sweet malt flavor which makes this beer very drinkable.

uhclem (403) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2008
Pours a dark copper color with a good sized head. Lacing is practically non-existent. Nice combination of fruit and pine in the aroma. the hoppiness is subtle at first, but quickly asserts itself. Silky mouthfeel. Malt taste makes its appearance at the end, but gives way to a clean, bitter aftertaste. This one’s a keeper.

Oakes (13913) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2007
Dark amber colour. Fresh citrus nose (calamansi, Korean sugarbomb mandarins) with crystal malt/breadcrust in the background. Quite frankly, the bright top note contrasts the malts a bit too much. Both elements are more rounded on the palate, however. The bright papaya and kumquat notes work well with toasty, earthy, woody malt complexity.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Poured from a bottle. Pours a copper color with a fluffy white head. Aroma of hops and grapefruit. Relatively generic as far as IPA’s go, but it did have a nice hop finish that was bitter and kept you coming back for more. Pretty good IPA that I will revisit.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2008 Bottle. Copper color, slight haze, beautiful white head with excellent retention. Nice aroma, grapefruit and hops. Flavor is well balanced, with clean finish and almost no aftertaste. An excellent IPA.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a light brown color with a light haze. Very fragrant aroma, with citrus and pine the main notes. Light biscuit in the aroma, with light caramel and some grass as well. Very good hop profile, but could have used a little more malt for balance. Still a fine IPA.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Bottle, pours a nice fairly clear copper color, with a nice lasting off white head. Plenty of grapefruit on the nose and initial taste, followed by some slight malt sweetness. Pretty good actually, a nice fairly balanced IPA.

DocLock (8798) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Bottle. Semi hazy dark straw/copper pour with 1-finger off-white head. Nice crisp hop aroma plus some caramel malt. The hop flavor was also crisp, citric, very pure and fresh tasting, and well matched by a solid malt bill. Solid complexity. I’d buy this by the case if I could.
