On Tap at Denver Winter Brew Fest ’13. Pour is golden orange with a big cream head and decent lacing. Earthy/spicy hops upfront, somewhat dirty, caramelly, piney, and grassy hops in the aroma with a touch of biscuit. Taste is very earthy, somewhat spicy, a touch of citrus, grapefruit peel, some biscuit and bread, with notes of grass and resin as it begins to warm. Sticky mouthfeel with high carbonation. Solid IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On hand at Denver Summer Beer Fest 2012. Hazy golden with generous fluffy white head. Aroma of strong hoppy tones like peppery pine and fresh cut flowers, with a nice earthy toffee presence underneath. Taste is clean but sharp and full, with delightful hop tones of bitter grassiness, some light floral herbalnes, and a nice belgianesque malt tone that’s both dusty yet grainy. Interesting and complex.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours a medium, lasting, white head, with moderate lacing, over a clear, amber (SRM 7) body.....nose is grapefruit peel, pine, light toffee/caramel...taste is light toffee/caramel, heavier pine, citrus, with hints of tropical fruit and spices, finishing with lingering resin bitterness....mouth feel medium, carbonation high. This is an IPA. It tends towards the hop backbone in aroma and flavor over the malts. This adds many interesting nuances to the overall experience. Overall it is very clean and refreshing.
