3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz can from Coral Bay in Greeley. Pours a coppery orange with a white head leaving some spots of lace. Aroma has sweet fruits, citrus, pine and caramel. Taste is of caramel, spicy spruce, bitter grapefruit and a lot of resin. Medium bodied and sticky. Finishes long and bittersweet. A very solid ipa.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can via trade with brokephibroke. Hazy copper body, thin clumping beige head. Muddled bitter, catty nose. Light body, bitter and muddy with hints of citrus peel but mostly catty floral elements. Drinkable but unremarkable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
1 pint pours a hazy copper with a slap in the face of hops. I had a bit of can taste in my mouth too.
Average IPA. Low ABV for an IPA and average taste.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I LOVE this beer! Named appropriately with the familiar aroma of some kind bud upon the pour. Cloudy brown color with very little head. Great robust flavors with a resin and floral hops flavor.

Let this one warm up a bit to develop its full potential. Not balanced at all, just straight forward hops. I think the brewer could either pump up the ABV or cut the hops and ABV to improve this,

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From can. Pours a dark copper with a definite red hue. Hardly any head. Nose is very pleasant but very much subdued. Some nice lacing and just a few tiny bubbles. Taste is gritty and blunt. Peculiar aftertaste. I didn’t expect a great deal from this--anything that has that much shit printed on the can should be approached with a certain degree of skepticism. Average.

Lives up to it’s name: A one-dimensional resin-bomb. Clean, crisp finish, however. Wish it had a bit more complexity.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Easy drinking IPA nice hops balance. This was average and makes for a good session IPA.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from can into snifter, hazy burnt orange with minimal head. Aroma is a bit dank, too be expected. Not bad, not bad...initial taste is decent, the it slowly spirals down. Not very lively, interesting beer actually. I can’t decide if it’s good or not so good.

Nothing special here. Nose os of resinous hops. Mouthfeel is light and the malts dont seem to really meah iratch the hops. Meh
