This beer is defined by its pronounced hop bitterness, flavor and aroma. It has a solid malt backbone that works with the citrusy American hops. The hop bouquet resonates like flavors of tangerine and ruby red grapefruit. The mouth feel is crisp and dry leaving a balance of bitterness and rich malt on the palate. It is golden honey in color.
Hops: Chinook, Columbus, Cascade, Summit, Eldorado, Amarillo

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. Im 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.

arminjewell (8462) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, slightly hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, pine, resinous notes into a bit of grass, some bready, doughy notes as well, slight lemon. Taste was a mix of orange, grapefruit, pine into some slight resin, herbal notes into a bit of bread, dough, finishing bitter.

theisti (3414) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - APR 2, 2015
750 ml bottle purchased at Applejack in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. The pour is a hazed orange copper with a three inch light tan head which is quite lasting and falls with nice lace. The aroma is nutty, softly coffee, with grassy floral hop and an interesting fresh cocoa smell. Interesting nose, very engaging. The taste is grass, lemon citrus hop, followed close behind by the toast, roast and nut of the coffee, which carries the finish. All flavors are integrated, balanced and pleasantly subdued. The palate is medium bodied, cleansing carbonation and a dry softly bitter and roast finish. Nicely integrated flavors, well done.

Draft. Pours a medium, well retained, white head, with slight lacing, over a slightly hazy, amber (SRM 13) body.....nose is light toasted malts, with light biscuit, bread, light citrus peel, tangerine, floral note, hints of pine, resin, balance to the hops....taste is lightly sweet,floral honey notes, moderate citrus peel, tangerine, light pine, resin, finishing with a soft hop bitterness, balance to the hops.....mouth feel, medium body, slightly sticky. light alcohol, light astringency, carbonation slightly creamy. This is more east coast IPA. The multitude of hops have a gentle bitterness, with an apparent low alpha acid content. The layers of hop aroma and flavor emphasize the delicacy of the hops. It has too low bitterness to be an American IPA. If you want a complex but light on bitterness IPA, this ones for you. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

Block (1650) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 26, 2014
A pretty solid IPA. Hops in the nose. A crispy bitterness in the body with a sweeter backbone. The 7.2% holds up well.

Strykzone (5375) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Sampled at the brewery. Clear and copper hued. A thick off white head leaves a thick lacing layer. Complex hop aroma of citrus and cat. The cat is tasted first along with softer malts. Complex hop flavor. Citrus, tropical, maybe some grass. A hint of honey. A nice beer.
