COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. 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.

@ 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.

On tap at Fate. Pour is hazy yellow with a big white head and great lacing. Big pine, grass, a touch of citrus, biscuit, light orange, sweet fruits, mango, and pine in the aroma. Taste is fruity, weedy, grass, pine, light citrus, biscuit, straw, and resin with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with medium-to-soft carbonation. Damn decent IPA.
