3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. A decent IPA with lots of carmel malt and a good dose of hops. I found the finish kind of harsh, but generally solid.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap @ Estes Park. Cloudy copper with a small head. No hops in the aroma, just some sweet caramel malt. Flavor is mostly sweet and malty very light hop bitterness and citrus taste. This one felt unbalanced and need more hops.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours very dark and opaque. No head or lacing whatsoever. Nose is bland hops and faint citrus. Taste is a bit better than the smell, but tastes watered down, which I guess increases drinkability! Glad I only bought one bottle for $1.69. Would not buy again.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
draft at the brewpub - Pours cloudy copper and has a nice grapefruit hops aroma. The flavor has good, citrusy hop bitterness and well balanced sweet malt in there too lending a medium body to this not very complex but very drinkable IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper body with a fluffy white head.
Hoppy aroma of citrus and grapefruit. The flavors started with a flash of caramel malt followed immediately by the citrus and floral hops. Not the big hoppy beer i was looking for but it was alright.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A pretty tight IPA if i do say so myself. A cloudy copper colour with a medium sized head. Awesome aroma with fruity pebbles and fresh floral notes. Taste is so fruity and awesome with hints of pepper and blueberry as well as dankalicious herb notes.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. !005 flat. No hiss, no bubbles. Has to be an off bottle. Unfortunate, as it’s got a pretty nice taste to it. Earthy hop aroma. Deep orange-brown color, a little darker than typical. Sweet upfront with a nice bitter finish. Good, but underwhelming when uncarbonated.
