3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours a golden, large white foamy head, wonderful lacing, with extremely light carbonation.   Sharp hop nose, citrusy and bready.   Smells like a good American Strong or Double IPA.   Smooth, yet fiery, hop bitterness on first sip.   Slightly malty, but not enough for my tastes.   Strong citrus peel presense from start to finish.   Medium body and mouthfeel.   Finishes with a strong citrus backing, fresh hop bitterness, and even a bit of tobacco.   My only gripe is that it could stand to be chewier/maltier.   Thanks goes out to TAR for the trade!

Aroma was great, could smell the hops and Malt right from the pour. No head to speak of but color was equal to other pale ales. Had some aftertaste to it but I would get this one again if I needed a fill bottle at the beer store for a empty spot in my own created six pack.

Flowery hop aroma with some pleasant malty sweetness and orange notes. Golden orange in color with a thin white head. Light sweetness up front, lots of citrus, orange and grapefruit. Moderate bitterness and rather dry in the finish. Pretty solid IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Picked up at Knightly Liquors in Orlando, Fl. Pours a murky light orange with a sticky white head and decent lacing. Aroma has some malty notes to it, not your typical floral nose that IPAs tend to have. Perhaps a bit of caramel as well. Flavor has the patented grapefruity citrusy west coast hoppiness, with a decent back end caramelly maltiness but a little too one dimensional leaning towards the hops. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky, finishes strong. All in all a decent IPA, better than the other offerings I have had from this brewer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orangish color, off-white head. Orange/citrus peel nad floral aroma. Floral hops dominated flavor, citrusy. Like many of the other Rockies Brew Co, it has lots of hops flavor, but not too much bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours with a medium sized white colored head. A full gold body with few bubbles. The aroma is orange poeel, bread and a little corriander. The taste is slightly sweet and bready. Thin mouthfeel. There are some oranges and a little pine in the aftertaste. A very nice IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer after its deportation from the 12-ounce brown bottle sets in the glass a translucent amber color with a presidential sized creamy light tan head that leaves a thick coating of lace upon the glass. Nose has a sweet hop floral aroma, citrus like in its crispness, the start sweet and fully malted with the top middling in its feel to the palate. Finish is modestly carbonated and the hops delectable in their spiciness, dry aftertaste and a nice drinking beer, one I enjoyed quite a lot.
