COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
n the 1960s, before Vail Village was paved and closed to vehicles, "hookiebobbing" referred to those committed fools who, while on skis, grabbed onto the bumper of passing cars to tow them up to the lifts. Our IPA is a Colorado approach to the American take of an English classic. Three aggressive yet floral American hops and one hop from Down Under team together to make a bright, citrusy and floral India Pale Ale. A deep caramel malt helps to balance the bitterness of the hops and lets the complex hop bill shine.
Hopped with Simcoe, Amarillo, Centennial and Galaxy.

Pours amber color with white head. Aroma of citrus and hops. Hoppy flavor but taste a little watered down. Good beer but I was hoping for more bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tower 42 Tasting. Another can from Dan the man. Clear gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and has good fine carbonation. Smooth light pale malts, mildly sweet. Good sweetish piney hops getting slightly minty. Good tropical fruits with a touch of lime. A light and sweetish IPA. Nice.

thegreenrooster (3820) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 19, 2016
Pour is a clear almost pale lager yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a decent floral hop with green onion in there. Flavor is again a floral hop with kind of a earthy English malt. No an overpowering hop bomb but this was a decent beer. Kina of a English/American combo IPA.

GTAEgeek (1750) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 14, 2016
Sample from a bottle. Pours a light gold color, with a small, off-white head. The nose is buttery, thick hops, with notes of pine sap, resin, biscuit dough, and lemon zest. The flavor is lightly dry and nicely bitter. Light to medium body, crisp, a little effervescent, and clean. This is a solidly done IPA, but the aroma is a little weak.
