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.

A pretty solid IPA. Hops in the nose. A crispy bitterness in the body with a sweeter backbone. The 7.2% holds up well.
