Dull amber pour with fair offwhite head. Surprisingly sweet. Smooth and a little foresty hop flavor. Big caramel malt backbone melds nicely. Easy drinker, but definitely not a west coast ipa by any stretch. maybe just an old bottle.

(bottle - 22 oz - Release #32) Hazy copper pour with a thin white head. Big citrus and pine resin hop aroma. Flavor is shockingly mild. Very light citrus and hops with a slow bitter creeping up on the aftertaste. Pity.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly hazy dark golden under a thin sticky off-white head. Aromas of sweet earthy toffee, toast, and grassy hops. The flavor starts with a big wave of sweet toffee, a little earthy nuttiness, lots of leafy/grassy hops, mild bitterness, and a touch of pine on the generally sweet nutty finish. Very crisp and malty strong pale ale. Big fan.

Great tasting beer. Beer like this makes me happy because it shows my city is really coming around as far as brewing.

Great pale ale, as advertised better than Crompton! Overall solid aroma, taste, appearance, and palate. Epic makes better IPA’s but this works for something a little less aggressive.

Poured as a taster at Denver taproom. citrus and resin on nose, copper color, mostly resin on palate, lots of dark malt flavors wo/ being very dark. Finish was a little bit unpleasant for me and I think it was from the dark malt notes at the end.
