Amber pour. Very big chewy resinous hop palate. Dry and tooth strippingly resinous. Lingering chewy earthiness. Very different from their regular IPAÖ 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 thatís worth. Nonetheless itís an excellent IPA. It has big flavors of orange and chocolate coupled with a nice quick bitter finish. Youíve gotta make a good IPA in this market, and thatís what they have done.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub: Pours a transparent deep golden bronze with a well-lacing pillowy off-white head. Has a fairly fresh piny resiny hop nose with some light malty sweetness. Starts with good fullness for the style and a nice amount of sweet caramel and pale maltiness well-balanced with a healthy dose of piny flavoring and bittering hops. Finishes crisp and bittersweet. A pretty good hoppy, English-style IPA.

Sample at Falling Rock Tap House in Denver. The beer is a ruddy orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Hoppy aroma with sweet caramel malt notes. Medium, clean body with flavors of piney hops, caramel, malt and also a touch a spice. The finish is hops and pine with a lingering bitterness left over. A slightly off-kilter IPA overall, but not in a bad way. Not bad.

I had this beer on tap at the Bull and Bush last night. The appearance was the best part. It was such a bright orange it looked like light was being emitted. The smell was subdued hops. The taste was really balanced between malt and hops with none of the fruity notes I am used to in an IPA. The flavor was very good and the drinkability was excellent. Good stuff.
Serving type: on-tap

Great name - great beer - the nose is full of bright fruity notes and zesty hop character - the flavor is much the same, with a wonderful balance of lightly sweet malt, bright fruitiness, and spicy hops - nothing in-your-face, just damn tasty - I could drink this all day.

Crushed with Jakebra and Honkeybra at the Falling Rock Taphouse. Leafy, hoppy nose. Some kinda sour hops, kinda bitter. Best name for a beer ever though.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Bull & Bush brewpub. Pours a clear rusty orange body with a nice off-white, creamy ring of a head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma isnít too bad. Nothing is in your face about it, but it has a pleasant amount of sweet caramel malts and light piney hops. Flavor is pretty solid. Nice balance and straightforward. Clean bready malts with lots of thick caramel. Moderate amount of citrus, light sharp piney hops that linger for a good amount of time. Palate is full and dry. Overall, a solid IPA for a quiet brewpub in Denver. Definitely my favorite offered by them.
