2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Interesting and complex aroma, maltier than Iíd expect, not much citrus like some other IPAs. The flavor is bitter without much balance, with a lingering bitterness that takes a long time to clear and leaves you rubbing your tongue on the roof of your mouth. It tastes like perhaps this is an older or mishandled bottle due to the lack of hop aroma and overwhelming bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Denver Airport. Pours amber with a white head. Citrus, pine, some sweetness. Pretty drinkable but also pretty forgettable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
High quality IPA with a relative mild and well-balanced hoppiness. More pine than citrus and a slight tartness to the bitter finish and aftertaste. A high quality beverage.

Very drinkable ipa with plenty of hoppy fruity flavor. Almost taste like a session ipa with the abv of 7.2%. Would drink again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
21 oct 2013, nitro tap. Gold, clear, steady bubbles. Nose is sweet granola malt, maybe pineapple. Ned body and mildly fizzy. I don't like this on nitro. It has some kind of brown/over ripe apple flavor.

"a fairly basic but slightly better than average IPA. a touch thin, but maybe Iím just getting used to doubles. nice citrusy hop aroma and flavor, and a good balance achieved with the malts. wanting a little more in the finish, but Iíll buy again. 2013 very pleasant in nitro or cask."

Poured from tap to glass. Straw hue with white head that dissipated. Aroma is grapefruit, straw, pine, orange peel. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and zesty carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness followed by a nice hop bitterness. Overall this is a nice IPA.

A nice IPA that is easy to drink, a little bitter, hoppy and with a small citrus taste. Definitely one to have again.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, poured into a sampler. Lots of bright, sweet aromas come out of this beer, including orange, lemon, grapefruit, some candy sugar, and some caramel late. Secondary notes of grain, toast, and cleanser come through, throughout the drink. It pours a clear, effervescent, honey yellow with a white soapy head. A thick ring is retained with a moderate layer of soapy head on the surface. A nice, sheet-web lace is left on the glass. The taste is a medium high bitter with a light sweetness. The texture is thin and oily with a medium body and an above average, soapy carbonation. Grapefruit, toast, and caramel malt finish the beer with a strong citrus peel joining in the aftertaste. Itís dry, slightly astringent and crisp.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Aroma of citrus, wheat, hops and malt. Light flavor of hops, orange peel, grass and floral. Malty thickness, not so much sweetness, turns me off.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This golden colored IPA produces a full throttle IPA experience. There is a deeply satisfying malt flavor that is robust but not overdone. The flavor and mouth feel are balanced by a commensurate and perfectly apportioned hop bittering. After each sip there is a pleasant lingering remembrance beckoning one to return again quickly or just savor the lovely after effects on oneís palate. I love this pale IPA. It is clean and refreshing, yet respectably potent and lupulicious. Somewhere very close to a Titan IPA and beyond a Daleís Pale Ale. This brew is not so thick and sticky so as to necessitate chasing each swallow with water, although I deeply respect some extreme IPA offerings that do. And it does lean to the strong deeply satisfying side of the IPA spectrum. It does not skimp in either the Malt or the Hop department but takes you deep into the sweet spot without overdoing it.
