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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

On tap at the brewpub. Hazy brown beer. Full on hops but not overwhelming and nicely balanced crisp malt.

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, donít 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.

Ontbeertaster (2345) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2011
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

On tap at the brewpub - strong entry into the IPA category, aromas are subdued, slightly english style on this one.

Malty floral ish hop aroma. Taste is of slightly roasted malt and nicely balanced with hops, mix of floral and slight pine. Bitter finish. Not overly hoppy or malty. Well balanced and an enjoyable ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear dark amber. Thin head. Faint hop aroma. Taste is very hoppy, grapfruit. Fruity esters. Some roast in finish. Well made, balanced.
