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.

12 oz can. Pours hazy dark golden orange with a medium creamy white head that goes to a thin film and laces the glass.
The aroma is lots of grapefruit and green piney hops with some bready crystal malt in the background.
The flavor is sweet crystal malts with lots of grapefruit and citrus followed by a fairly big resiny dank hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a very nice IPA with sweet fruity notes and nice hop bitterness.
