COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Event Horizon has a huge hop character. A large addition of American hop varieties contributes a distinct citrus, resinous flavor and aroma. The bitterness is intense, but is balanced by a hefty malt profile. ABV 9.4% / IBU: 140

BlackForestCO (976) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - JAN 23, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Poured a clear copper-orange color with a moderate, dense off-white head. Aroma of earthy (lightly piny), musty, fruity (grapefruit and orange), leafy hops with a faint malty sweetness peaking through. Smooth, lightly tart entry with hints of lemon leads into a bitter, earthy, leafy hoppiness with some undertones of citrus (predominantly grapefruit and orange) that linger into the finish where it is paired with a soft caramel sweetness. Moderate carbonation and biting mouth feel. Overall, it was an IIPA that wasn’t overwhelming, but it was constructed well and had all the elements to a create an enjoyable beer.

Hop forward, a bitter / citrus / resin / hop mix - very strong bite. This is a full punch in the mouth of flavor. It earns the 140 IBU easily. I want to take a growler of this home to continue being punched in the mouth!

BMan1113VR (7813) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 9, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Pours with a hazy golden orange body with a small white head. Aromas are of overripe fruit, pear, apple citrus, fruit and a ton of esters. Flavors are sweet and boozy. Over ripe and tropical fruit, sweet, boozy. A touch cloying even. Didn’t ferment out too well. Decent but not great.

brentfeesh (1207) - Gadsden, Alabama, USA - OCT 9, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Hazy dark Orange pour. Sweet Orange and light citrus aroma but very light. The flavor is malt heavy but well balanced by the ample hop presence of Orange and spicy pine. Just a solid lingering spicy pine citrus finish. Full bodied, smooth, and a semi dry finish. Good.

notalush (4763) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Pour a clear dark orange, nearly amber - nose and flavor are full of tropical fruits - grapefruit, passionfruit, apricot - a sturdy malt base underneath adds just enough heft - surprisingly low on the bitterness, but with copious earthy hop flavor - nicely balanced, with only a small amount of alcohol showing - pretty good.

On a recent trip to Fort Collins with friends, we had the opportunity to try this one on tap at the brewery. Poured a clear orange color with a little white head. Aromas of bubblegum, earth and some citrus. On the palate, this one is medium bodied, with flavors of earth, malt and light citrusy hops.

Tap at the brewery. Dark red orange appearance with a cream colored head. Quite piney hoppy aroma. Very bushy hoppy flavor. Pretty strong hop flavor with a bitter finish.
