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.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2004 GABF 2003 (as Man Beer): The guys and girls from this brewery, wear orange jumpsuits to the GABF and run around making a lot of noise. Somewhere between amber and orange with a small head. Deep earthy, grassy aroma. Full bodied and bitter all the time including its long aftertaste.

3fourths (8100) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2003
Cash at the Falling Rock, Denver, GABF 2003. Slightly cloudy amber appearance. Roasty wood, vanilla, and nutty hop aroma. Nutty, roasted wood. Good overall spectrum of flavor, robust, and subtly woodish. Nice, but not a typical US IPA. Lacking just a little bit in the body.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Pours clear dark amber. Thin head. Faint hop aroma. Taste is very hoppy, grapfruit. Fruity esters. Some roast in finish. Well made, balanced.

Kevin (2089) - New Mexico, USA - MAR 10, 2007
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.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 10, 2007
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.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 4, 2009
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

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. It’s a solid and clean beer which I kept coming back to on my return visits.

bigbish (539) - California, USA - JAN 12, 2011
a tasty english IPA. Very smooth, malty flavor that is well balanced by the piney bitterness of the hops. Very good.

dionysus (1448) - Arizona, USA - JUL 27, 2011
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 like ginger.

Terminus (3251) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Tap at the brewpub september 2012-pours lite orange with a small soapy eggshell head and good lacing from the start. Nose is pine and diacytl, very brit inspired but with more piney hops (less earth than a brit ipa). the yeast quality is all brit though. lots of pine/resin on the flavors with lingering sweet caramel malt and diacytl. damn this stupid big D, go away! Even so, i actually thought this beer was pretty good and what the brewery was going for. If it didnt have the big D you would see close to 4 ratings from me. However, this is a pretty authentic Brit inspired IPA.
