3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on 10/7/2012. This India Pale Ale pours a medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, citrusy and grapefruity. A medium bodied India Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and grapefruity and a touch piney. Decent carbonation. A fairly bitter IPA with a a whole lot of lingering hop bitterness. Nice IPA. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is mostly bitter.

A pleasant citrus - grapefruit aroma with a frothy mostly diminishing head, clear, sparkling amber hue. I enjoy the taste of this IPA, it does have a bite and the finish is long in duration.

Nitro pour at Freshcraft. Orange pour with a thick creamy white head. Light citrus hop nose - not as hoppy as most IPAs. Med, creamy (nitro) body with well balanced citrus hops and caramel malts. Citrus bitter finish that sticks around a bit.

So many good IPAs put there maybe I'm being a little stingy rating. No complaints but I may spend my beer dollar in pursuit of better.

On tap in CO Springs. Big notro-like head. Hazy yellow pour. Not a lot of aroma to it. A generally dry beer--british style, minerally, dry. Good dose of hop at the end.

Finished second to Yellow Kite as my favorite beer of this sampler pack. Very nice IPA but not at the top of my favorites. Something I really enjoyed was the blending of the bitter/grapefruit/malt/hop concoction. Again, this is a beer I would recommend others give a try.

Bottle @ home. Iím a little surprised that I havenít rated this yet- I guess Iíll have to make a stop by Bristol next time Iím in the Springs. Cloudy, golden orange appearance with a fluffy, cream/tan head. Somewhat grapefruit/orange citrusy, piney hoppy, slightly toasty aroma. Sweet, toasty pale malty, piney, grapefruit hoppy, a touch earthy flavor. Pretty solid IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2011 Poured from a draft into a pilsner glass at Buffalo Wild Wings in Colorado Springs, Colo. Inch of head. Color was hazy, murky caramel. Lots of lacing. Lots of film on the sides throughout.
Smelled of buttery malts. Slightly bitter.
Similar to the nose. Tasted of a buttery balance with a slightly bitter aftertaste.
Medium body. Average carbonation. Consistent, smooth taste.
Just an okay beer overall. I was hoping for better but I guess thatís what I get for hoping.
