3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Colorado Plus - listed as Moirai IPA, but same abv and ibu, plus described as "american ipa," so I am assuming it is the same beer - a very clean ipa, with a lean malt backbone that leaves plenty of room for the hops to shine - hops are floral, earthy, resinous - at time they are a little cheesy and garlicky as well, but these qualities are subdued - spicy, fairly bitter finish - it’s alright.

@ South Denver Beer Fest 2013. Slightly hazy golden with a small foamy white head. Aroma was lovely and full of floral hop resin and loads of caramel. Flavor starts with a nice bitter hoppiness mixed with floral and caramel tones like from the nose, with a resiny finish.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the inaugural Front Range Ralley in Loveland, CO and growler. This stuff rocks. My new favorite IPA. Beats others in quality AND QUANTITY of aroma and flavor. I’m getting a load of citrus- more orange than grapefruit - as well as pine and floral notes. Very low onion. Explodes on the palate with carmel malt and then a plethora of hop flavors, almost overshadowing the substantial bitterness. A very slight astringent/mineral taste in the finish.
