This British-style IPA features citrus-filled aromas and a very malty foundation that marries nicely with the bold hop notes that emerge on the palate and ultimately dominate its lingering finish.

16.9 oz. bottle, consumed on 12-20-15. Bottled 9/15/15. Pours an effervescent, clear, dark bronze with a moderate to large amount of beige head. Pretty good lacing. Nice looking beer. Juicy, malty aroma features scents of cotton candy, mango, and mineral water. Malty, boozy taste. Sugary, fruit-juicy. Apricot, toffee, and caramel flavors. Bitter in the finish. Medium body. Smooth in the palate. Acceptable but forgettable palate effects. My guess is that this is past its prime at a little over 3 months old. Itís definitely not bad but probably would have been better a couple of months ago. Between lack of bite from aging hops, the juiciness of the hops that likely have been present from the beginning, and the maltiness of the beer by the standards of the style, the beer simply is sweeter than ideal. Note: Seeing after the fact that this is a British-style IPA makes me think that the flavor effects Iíve experienced were intended and not from fading hops. Regardless, the flavors arenít great.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours hazy copper with a fizzy white head. Tastes like bitter hops, grapefruit, some pine, dry toasted malt, and a hint of fruityness. Light/medium body and medium carbonation. Smells like caramel malt, grapefruit hops, some resin, and bready.

Steveís in Term B in Denver. Creamy, fruity and quite malty. Zippy pepper pops in and out, sweet citrus is a clear second to the zip, plain caramel, boooooring.

PorterPounder (6986) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Ouray, Co. - Ouray Liquor Store - 1 pt .9 fl oz bottle. Dark copper pour, sticky off- white colored head, nice lacing. Aroma has dates and raisins, a touch of toffee. Flavor is very malt oriented with some caramel accents, some nutty accents, some peach marmalade accents, very brief citrus bitterness. Most definitely a British IPA. Thick, sticky mouthfeel. Nice change of pace for an IPA.
