3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz Can sampled 3 weeks old
Pours a clear golden orange body. Head is 1/4 inch and white. Head retention and lacing are above average.
Aromas are of muted hops, a little bit of pineapple and mango. Slight pine notes come thru as beer warms. Amber malts are light and alcohol is undetected.
Taste is full of floral and resinous hops, getting some acidic fruit too, pineapple and mango juice. A touch of sweet malt is present, alcohol is well hidden.
Mouthfeel is light and well carbonated. Head has a nice froth, bitterness stays on the lips and tongue.
Overall good Ipa but nothing that sets it apart from the countless others in the country. Great price keeps me coming back for more.

Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear, light, copper color with a thin, white head. Light, hoppy aroma with some citrus balance to it. Light, hoppy taste. Crisp. Easy to drink. Not much to this IPA. Pretty basic.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy and light orange. Thinnish body. Malt flavors of white cake, oats and dough. Floral aromas. Nip of citrus. Has some good things going on, but it lacks depth and punch.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The color is golden with a light white head. The fruity/citrus aroma helps soften the strong hops of the IPA but it still has a bit of bitterness which I personally enjoy. I don’t taste many of the things that some people on here have included in their reviews, those sound disgusting. This was quite enjoyable and I would buy it again. I did see someone mention inconsistency at DBC so maybe I gota different/better batch.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Golden amber and clear appearance with a white head. Note: I’m stuffed up. Aroma of citrus zest, tropical fruits, light resinous hops, pine and toasted grains. Flavor is bitter and pretty clean with a touch of bready, malty sweetness. Pretty solid IPA.

Can - I haven’t been to Denver Beer Co. in well over a year - I pretty much gave up due to their inconsistent quality - but now that they’re canning, I figured I’d give their cans a shot - hazy orange pour - nose is citric, grassy, and garlicky hops, vegetable juice, mild malt character - watery texture - pretty lifeless in the mouth - flavor is pretty basic, but not too bad - I do not really detect the diacetyl that some others have complained about, but I tend not to be very sensitive to it - mostly clean sweetness followed by potent bitterness, bordering on abrasiveness - flavors of pine, citrus, pepper - decent hop profile in the flavor and thankfully none of the vegetable juice character from the nose - still, a pretty weak attempt.
