Dont seek out but dont avoid either if offered. Has nice grapefruit carmel popcorn taste combination, but it falls short of the leading ipaís because it has a thin body which makes it seem overcarbonated, giving it an unpleasant sharpness in the finish. Good not great, story of Big Skyís life.

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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Flavors arenít as deep as some of my favorite IPAs and double IPAs but still really nice citrus/grapefruit, pine, and hops. In addition, some sweetness blended in along with some bitterness on the finish which I really like. Even with an ABV 6.2 one of my favorite session IPAs because itís somewhat easy drinking in my opinion.

bottle @ Johnís Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Clear amber brown, heavy tan head cover, a curtain of lace. Aroma is an appealing citrus and malt. Taste is full-bodied toffee malt that grows in the palate, finally allowing satisfying citrus hops to wash through on the swallow. But,...when the "smoke" clears, there is the malt, lingering nicely. Good stuff.
