2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap @ Epic Beer Fest Denver 2013. Pours a fairly clear orange appearance with an off white head. Fairly herbal, light grapefruit citrusy, grassy/woody hoppy aroma with some caramel. Mildly toasted caramel malty, somewhat spicy, a bit bready, light citrusy flavor. Not all that exciting or fulfilling.

Orange pour with good head. Really nice grapefruit and blood orange aromas. The taste is pretty balanced, though grassy hop bitterness comes in a bit too strong at the end. Finishes pretty clean. Medium body and mouthfeel

More like a good pale ale than IPA. Would be a great post-mountain bike beer. Nice floral hop aromas but pretty light nose. Deep gold. Nice balanced slightly breast bitter finish. Love the pint bottle 4 packs.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
16 oz bottle. Pours golden amber with a small creamy off white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is biscuity malts, sugary melons and some piney resiny hops.
The flavor is lots of biscuity malts with a little fruit and a pretty big grassy bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly watery with low carbonation.
Overall, I didn’t really care for it. Thin, with too much biscuit.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
1 pint bottle - mostly clear light amber - fluffy, well-sustained head - nose is a bit sticky sweet - caramel - some woody pine resin hop character - soft carbonation - fairly creamy in the mouth - caramel sweetness, some doughy yeast character - very resinous, woody hop character through the middle, followed by some spicy and garlicky summit - finish is watery, a little sugary - not without its merits, but kind of a poor attempt.

Could be my new favorite IPA, certainly my go to from Colorado. Smooth, hop forward without being too aggressive. Really well balanced. This will be a new standby and go to in my fridge. Nice Job Elevation!

Draught at the Fate brewery. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with grass, citrus, fruits and some hops. Very mellow body, more like pale ale than IPA. Dry bitter finish with citrus. Decent IPA, more like a pale ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A somewhat brutish and simple ipa but it has some appeal.. Nose has mild chinook cheesy stuff, grassy and lots of raw grain, smells like first hopped wort. The raw wort thing is confirmed in the taste, medium to low attenuation, a little syruoy in mouthfeel, clean ale yeast, some pine hop shit. Very raw and for the most part boring,
