Draft (many) @ Rackhouse. Nose is just sticky, spicy, floral hops. Awesome nose. Flavor is surprisingly a little subdued compared to the nose, an upfront blast of florals and then a slight fruitiness before a total bash of bitterness. Little sweet/malt to back this up, so itís generally just hop juice (albeit very, very tasty hop juice). If youíre in a hop-jones mood, this is great, if youíre looking for a complex, balanced IIPA, look elsewhere. That being said, itís still delicious.

Not much aroma but great color and overall appearance. Tastes hoppy, bitter grapefruit rind but very sweet in the background. A little imbalanced with these 2 extremes. Good palate. Overall just okay.

Tap at Falling Rock as Double IPA. Gold color. Good dry pine aroma. There is sweetness, being a double ipa, but the hops are more prominent and very drying with bitter citrus.

Pours a murky gold orange color with a rich white head. Citrusy nose but thatís mellowed by the mounds of grain. Heavier mouthfeel with some alcohol heat, but just the right amount. Grapefruit and a little pineapple balanced with more than adequate malt.

Pale amber in color surprised me that it was lighter than the regular IPA. Good hop aroma and tasty malt flavors. Body was light/medium. Finish was dry and lingering bitterness would not fade.

Tap at Dry Dock, into a shaker pint. The info sheet at the brewery says glowing marigold with an antique white head. Iíll add that itís hazy, probably unfiltered, and the head sticks in thick horizontal sheets. Lots of orange, a touch of vanilla, nice tropical notes, mango and pineapple in the nose. Mango sorbet. More grassy and resinous flavor, a little dank, nicely tropical again, mango nice with grapefruit. Resin lingers on the tongue.

Dry Dock is one of Coloradoís many truly excellent craft breweries. This is my favorite brew by these guys. Long before they were a micro brew pub I shopped with these guys for my home brew supplies.
This Double IPA is delicious, has a nice hop nose and is neither uber malty nor too hoppy. Just the right balance. Much less powerful on the palate than Titan or some over the top IPAs. I can have a couple more of these tonite for sure!

On tap at Barrels & Bottles. Gold and clear appearance with a white head. Aroma of resinous hops, pine, grass, light herbs, biscuits and toasted grains. Similar flavor, medium to heavy bitterness balanced by light malty sweetness. Medium to full body.
