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.

@ 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.

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.
