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.

[Feb 18, 2009]
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear red with a small ring of a head. The nose is hoppy enough and PNW leaning with distinctive grapefruit. I get more clean, bright citrus delivery in the flavor along with juicy malts, berries, and biscuits. the finish is dryish with emphasis on grapefruit. Itís a solid and clean beer which I kept coming back to on my return visits.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Underwhelming nose, faint, distant. This is very much leaning on the pale side, its mellow and lightly hoppy. Did I say light? Very light. A nice beer, very sessionable, but pretty boring. Cool pub though! Next time will try some scotch

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2010 Light brown with a chunky head. Nose is a bit soapy and hoppy. Hops up front and on the finish. A bit thin palate and no malt profile. Sharp and tart. Overall this is an overated beer.
8/10: Light hops, mild, refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Falling Rock. Pours a light golden amber hue. Fairly retentive white tanned head. Nice blast of fresh hops off the aroma when swirled a bit. Lots of sweet appley malts up front getting hit with a very forward, yet balanced hop profile in the body and lingering through the finish. Fairly spicey for an IPA, its nice. Nice citrusy presence as well. Nothing out of the ordinary, but good stuff! Definitely worth a shot if you haven’t had a taste for yourself!

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.
