1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Clear amber with a small soapy white head. Oh god. Overly malty. Tons of off flavors in this, Cotton candy. Ethanol. Rotten melon. Seriously? Is that even rotten melon or what the efffffff is that? Jesus. Scroll past.

One of my favorite Colorado IPA’s. Full of citrusy hops and a very light body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz can. Pours slightly hazy copper gold with a medium frothy white head that goes to a thin film and laces the glass.
The aroma is sweet sugary tropical fruits.
The flavor is sweet juicy fruits with some resiny piney hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, very sweet and fruity IPA. A little too sweet for me.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from tallboy to glass. Dark straw hue with frothy white head. Aroma is orange peel, pine, straw, caramel, lime. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and soft carbonation. Taste is slightly sweet initially with an citrus oil bitterness in the following and extending into the finish. Overall this is a decent shelf IPA but isn’t too terribly complex.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fresh can poured into a nonic pint. Pours a nice golden amber with a thick white head. Aroma of grass, lemon, a bit of soap. Taste is a blend of sweet malt and big bitter, grassy hops. The sweetness is a bit much, making things a bit unbalanced. Otherwise pretty easy drinking. Nice sweet, slightly resiny finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
16oz. Can. Pours amber, fizzy and little to no froth. Taste reminds me of summer citrus flavors. Palate is lightly bitter and somewhat flat. The appearance is perfect in color and blend. Good beer overall

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
16 oz can from Coconuts (Evergreen) into a globe glass. Orange and slightly hazy with a sticky white head. Aroma of spruce, resin, grass, floral notes, earthy hops and light fruity notes (citrus, tropical). Similar flavor, pretty bold hop bitterness and light malty sweetness. Medium body, crisp and pretty clean with a lingering finish.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can @ MJ’s. Amber pour with a short lived white head. Cabbage, grapefruit, and orange on the nose. Caramel malt sweetness, oxidized/stale hops, and pine. Candy sweetness. Fairly watery flavor, but somewhat sweet. Tea, grass, oxidized hops, and a weird vegetal aroma.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
It’s a refeshing ipa, and so is the price point for a 16oz 6pack. Stays in the style without being a hop bomb, easy drinking fruit, nice follow up to a big hot ride!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16oz can from Coral Bay in Greeley. Pours an unclear orange with a white head leaving spongey lacing. Aroma has a lot of pine ... and pine, with orange juice and toffee. Taste is of sweet caramel, pine and citrus. Syrupy and medium bodied. Hmmm. A solid ipa without a lot of zing - hits the bases without going all the way.
