COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This West Coast/Rocky Mountain-style India Pale Ale is back-hopped for a more intense hop bitterness, flavor and aroma without the balance of caramel malts like our Midwest-style Baldock IPA. It has medium-high alcohol content, high fruity, floral and citrus-like American-varietal hop character, deep golden color and medium maltiness.

Ernest (6542) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 18, 2015
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot), with a strong note of butter, other note of stewed prunes. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean. Medium to full body, syrupy texture, lively/soft carbonation. Yuck...lots of diacetyl and hardly any hops, this is a syrupy sweet malt-and-diacetyl bomb for the most part. Goopy and unpleasant. Drain pour.

Pours a dark brown orange. A very malty IPA. A little too cloying and heavy for my taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Splendid, well-balanced IPA. Nice malty backbone. The hops are more pine, but there is a nice resin undernote that contributes to the flavor.
