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.

Draft at the brewery on 7/17/07. Clear copper with a yellowish tan head, pretty nice looking. An assertive fresh pine aroma with some floral notes is very inviting. Medium body and carbonation and a resinous quality that was not unexpected given the hoppy aroma. Background malt is quickly overcome by a grapefruit bitterness in a lengthy, very dry finish.

Bottle. Pours copper, medium off-white head w/ lacing. Aroma is very fruity - light passionfruit, oranges, raspberry and some pear. Flavor is fruity hops - grapefruit, strawberry and a hint of lemon - with some tofee malt character balancing the hops. Full, creamy palate.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2007
On draught at the Big Sky brewery’s tap room in Missoula, Montana. Pours a dark amber brew with a creamy off-white head that dissolves quickly to a fine film and white ring. Spotty lacing after the dissolve. Aroma of lemon zest, sour oranges, grapefruit with a mild roasted caramel malt. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with some woody spruce and grapefruit flavors. Finish has a decent balance of malt and citrus hop flavors with a lingering light bitter aftertaste.

Bottle. A very hoppy aroma. A crunchy bread aftertaste. The aroma consists of citrus hops and fruity ones as well. A great beer.

Bottle; nice aroma of melon, fruit, citrus. Flavor was like eating grapefruit; good amount of hop bite, not too strong. Some mild pine and caramel flavors. Thought this was strong for the style.

This big rich IPA is towards middle of the road rather than radical. Now-a-days, everyone makes an IPA and this is a good one for those who want to try the style because it is well balenced and not too harsh to scare someone off. I like this one for regular drinking and to take with food. I nice beer at a fair price.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 2, 2007
Pours to a glowing copper/orange colored body that’s lightly hazy. A very craemy/rocky off-white head sits on top. The lacing is spectacular. The aroma is heavy on grapefruit, pine, and toasted pale malts. Wow. Is this just a great bottle, or is this beer just this good so far? The flavor is grassy and spruce trees with toasted pale malts. Quite malty. The palate is medium bodied and silky. A nice lingering bitterness. Very quaffable. A delightful surprise from Montana.
