Bottle. Caramel malt aroma with notes of pine and citrus hops. Pours golden colored with a moderate white head with good retention and some lacing. Starts with good caramel sweetness as well as some grapefruity citrus. Finishes very smooth for an IPA with only a hint of dryness and mild pine and citrus hops. Smooth, refreshing IPA.

Sweet (corn) and "beery" nose. Creamy texture; lacks some snap and crispness. Light caramel in the malts. OK balance but hop flavors and aromas were subdued. OK but underwhelming.

This is a good, moderately hoppy IPA that is moderately malty as well. It is not on the heavy, extra malty or extra hoppy spectrum but is well balanced and very satisfying after a long day treking through the snow with my wifie and our pooches!

Like the description says, this is a nice everyday IPA. If I had to bring an ale to a gathering, I would be comfortable bringing this.

A very well balanced and tasty brew, although more like a Pale Ale than an IPA...

On tap at several locations near Salida. Nice copper color, thick head. Mild hop aroma with pine and citrus. Flavor has some sugar, and also hops but is only moderately bitter. but it is good flavor and seems to be fresh.

This is not a huge hop bursting IPA. However, it is an extremely well balanced one. I can taste the pure mountain mineral water, the piney hops and the hint of malt. The finish is long and crisp.
