3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a medium golden with bubbles rushing to the top. Large white head that sits atop the glass like snow capped mountain. Aroma of pine and green hay with a bit of honey. Flavor is straight up hops. Not overpowering, but pretty bitter without a lot of other flavor to cut it. Less crisp than some beers with a bit of grain flavor that muddles the hop flavor a bit rather than letting the hops pierce the mouth like an arrow. Definitely an interesting beer and not bad to drink but it seems like things just aren’t working together quite right.

Pours amber with significant head and lace.
Aroma of grassy hops, sweet malts. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of grassy hops, slight pine sap, bitter roots, sweet malts. Overall very tasty and full bodies with nice hops flavors.

This gold IPA is wonderfully balanced with a nice medley of sweet and rich malts offset by some nicely piney aromatic hops. Seems more like a traditional english IPA with smooth flavor, balance and medium body and color. Affordable enough for everyday drinking as well!

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
16 oz bottle split up. Happy for that since I wouldn’t want to drink a full pint of this... Very hazy orange pour with a soapy head and very little lacing. Not sure of the packaging date, but it’s pretty damn oxidized. The caramel sweetness of hop death flows through this beer. On top of that, onion is very apparent, most likely from the Summit hops, and to top it all off, there’s a fair amount of diacetyl. Pretty messy. Lemme try it fresher.

(500ml bottle) clear medium gold, fine offwhite bubbles. Nose of candied citrus, kind of bland, fragrant, neat citrus smells. Taste of onion, very bitter grapefruit, watery, meaty, buttery palate finish.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
