On tap @ B&B. Pour is hazy burnt orange with an off-white head. Aroma shows notes of caramel, pine, light florals and a touch of earth. Flavor shows the same with additional hints of orange peel and what seems

Tap at brewpub, the pour is a dark brown, the smell is very hoppy, the taste is a very earthy hop and over the bitterness is just about right, really quite good, the description was an english IPA, so I wasnt expecting as much hop. But this was a pretty decent offering

growler. Pours a dark mahogany red color with nice sustaining off white head. Aroma of resiny, nectary, with big caramel, molasses malty notes as well. Medium to full bodied, quite creamy and a bit chewy. They describe it as an english IPA, and the flavor is definitely balanced, but there is a ton of hop presence, don’t be fooled. Low carbonation for the style, plenty of caramel and biscuit, a hint of toffee, and sweet, necary / resiny hops on the finish, with a lasting bitterness. Quite nice, very enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap @ brewpub. Good burnt orange appearance and creamy off white head. Slightly piney, slightly floral hoppy nose. Good bittering, slightly piney, organic hoppy flavor. Smooth IPA while still having a good hoppiness. One of the best beers here.

a tasty english IPA. Very smooth, malty flavor that is well balanced by the piney bitterness of the hops. Very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had a bunch of this at GABF as I was pouring for Bull & Bush. Pours a hazy amber color with a large, lacey yellowish/cream-colored head. The aroma is a nice complex English hop profile - floral, herbal, citrusy, and piney - with a little sweet caramel to back it up. Sweet caramel malt base on the flavor with a pleasant hop bitterness and flavor. Orange peel, herbal notes, pine needles, and resin. Medium-bodied with a nice airy lightness to it on the mouthfeel, and a good level of carbonation. A good and interesting English-style IPA overall, pretty on point.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2012 On tap @ Old Chicago. Interestingly dark for an IPA with a deep amber/walnut color and an off-white head with lots of sticky lacing. Complex fruity aroma, with hints of flowers and loads of caramel in the nose. Taste is magnificently balanced. Caramel joined the pine resin and orange citrus party brought on by the hop profile. Lots of lovely fresh cut flowers to lighten up the bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel with medium carbonation and full body. A surprising diamond in the rough! Highly recommended.

Amber pour. Very big chewy resinous hop palate. Dry and tooth strippingly resinous. Lingering chewy earthiness. Very different from their regular IPA… tastes like sucking pine cones.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours orange with a white head. The brewers claim that this is a Colorado IPA, for what that’s worth. Nonetheless it’s an excellent IPA. It has big flavors of orange and chocolate coupled with a nice quick bitter finish. You’ve gotta make a good IPA in this market, and that’s what they have done.
