COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

On tap at Falling Rock...interesting beer...I recall the impression of cherries in the aftertaste. I need to try more from these guys.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Pours clear dark amber. Thin head. Faint hop aroma. Taste is very hoppy, grapfruit. Fruity esters. Some roast in finish. Well made, balanced.

Tap @ 16th Colorado Brewfest. Pours mahagoney with a small tan head. Grapefruit and fruit hoppy aromas. Grapefruit hoppy and caramel malt flavor. Medium bodied and fizzy palate.

On cask at Falling Rock. Reddish brown with a fantastic head. Aroma is all hops of the grapefruit vein. The body is so creamy and thick. Malts are noticeable if you can get through the grapefruit. Impressive.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 27, 2005
On cask at the Falling Rock Tap House. Pours amber with a bubbly head. Aroma of... butter. Some C-hops, but mostly diacetyl. Served at the proper temp! YEAH! About goddamn time I get a properly served cask ale that hasen’t been sitting on line for 2 weeks. Med. heavy body. Grassy and grapefruity hoppiness with just a huge wallop of diacetyl. Hard to get past that. Bitter but not too dry finish.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Had this on cask. Clear amber color, thin white head. Big, assertive hop flavor, intense grapefruit and dandelion. Finishes with some alcohol burn but that may be the hops. Not much malt character, just caramelly sweetness. Oddly soapy aroma. A good IPA, just a little one-dimensional.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Copper. Unbelieveably aromatic with scents of lemons, grapefruit, pineapple, pine and wood. Characterful, but subtle in all ways and this is certainly lacking depth and body. Notes of aged dried hop pellets, grass and lemon. The malt backbone is fairly sweet.

This beer was a suprise. The aroma was quite hoppy and smelled as if it would be not balanced to my tastes...but I was prooved wrong with the first taste. Some how the olfactory senses were overshadowed (maybe I had a cold) by and incrediblly well balanced choclatly maltiness. The balance was nutty and memorable. I’d order another one...and did.

GABF & Falling Rock. Small world of difference in the harsher taste at fest vs the mellowing of cask at Rock. Agree that this one separates itself from of the handful of others that I've had at B&B. Not that all were bad, but enjoyed the up-front bitter in the hops. Quite an attack. Even after a run through the fest offerings this one stood out. Much better to have a taste later at FR and see a bit more in a pint. It did seem thinner than previous taste, but I suppose that's what casking can do. Certainly altered the brutal hop attack. Not the best IPA, perhaps more entertained by B&B wigs and humor.

(cask/ Man IPA) Dull amber-orange, slight haze; yellowish, quite reasonable head. Flowery nose, hoppy, bread dough. Spice-flavoured bread, notes of ginger, plenty of (British) hops, orangezest, nearly tart. Medium bodied, long peppery aftertaste. A relief from the other super-dull B&B beers tasted.
