3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at The Falling Rock in Denver. Poured a clear dark orange color. Head was tenacious and off white with good retention and lacing. Aroma was of grapefruity hops, distinct pear, and apricot. Slightly sweet up front with moderate hop bitterness that decreases in intensity, but lingers a bit even as it fades. Tasted of caramel, citrusty hops, burnt toffee, and especially pear. I imagine that a pear liqueur might taste a bit like this. The ever present pear put me off a bit, but this was a decent beer nonetheless.

tap. a bit hazy tan pour . strong citrus nose. sticky sweet candy and orange flavor with some lemon zest. a nice enjoyable hop flavor that does not go to far over the top. a strong sweet malt side helps this out.

GABF 2006: Clear light amber color with an off-white head. Big diacetyl aroma almost completely hides the hops. Sweet and hoppy flavor had a good balance. Mild bitterness on the finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the brewpub. Very dark for an IPA with a deep walnut color and an off-white head with plenty of lacing. Complex fruity aroma, smooth medium body, and superbly balanced fruity and floral hop bouquet at the end. A really excellent IPA that I wish I could get in a bottle -- Bull & Bush is worth visiting for their beers but not the food.

On tap at Falling Rock Taphouse, 4/15/06: Orange-red with a sticky sided head. Almost spicey and heavy-handed. If an orange was sour, it would taste like this. Wonderful brew with little aroma.

Thanks to doppelganger for sharing this one, and for alaskawarren for the bottling skills.
This IPA has a nice soft and sweet hop aroma: flowers, watermelon, candy, some mint too. A smooth sweetness with well-balanced bitterness. Sufficiently carbonated. A nice IPA.
I’d like to try it closer to the source.
