In the bottle from Total Beverage Denver. Pours dark amber with a large off-white and yellowish head consisting of huge foam bubbles. Has a deep aroma of pine-like hops. The strong bitterness with a solid malt backbone really stands out in this beer. It has a long lingering bite on the tongue. Delicious.

Poured a copper-amber hue with a medium-sized white head. Big hops araoma that lingered. Light and crisp while being very refreshing and quaffable. Resinous warming finish. Glad this one took over for Quail Springs IPA.

Thanks to decaturstevo for sharing this one.
Creamy off-white head over a cloudy orange/amber body.
Fragrant hops, light fruit aroma.
A nice dry finish follows a smoothly bittered yet solidly malted start.

Bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007
Hazy amber color; creamy head. Nice hoppy aroma, a bit resiny. Medium mouthfeel, with some good malt and caramel, some sweetness, well balanced (and more) by the bitterness, some resins. Good IPA (American), but straight, without special interest.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours light brown with close head. Aroma is faintly chemical and a tobacco-like whiff. Straight bitter is predominant flavor with some orange, caramel and honey. This last note detracts. Palate is average, unremarkable. A good beer if you are in the mood for bitter.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange with white head. Vary piney, hop aroma, but with significant grapefruit notes, too. Hop pretty uch dominate the aroma. Flavor has a few smoky notes, and a little bit of earthy, caramel flavors, but is really diominated by big piney and citrusy hops, with a long, sticky aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear copper color. Head disapates fairly quickly, but good lacing. Sweet and spicy aroma. Medium body but good flavor on all parts of the tongue. Did not rate this beer initially, but I thought it used to have yeast suspended in it. I wish it still did. Good west coast IPA.
