Tap. A great looking beer that was rich in amber color. The aroma was full and clean, just like the flavor. It was nice on the palate, intense, and flavorful. Smooth yet Inspiring. A solid IPA.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
In a bottle from a mixpack. Good at first blush, but comes forth with a medicinal/bittery mid- to back palate. I’ll admit I’m not sure what "Colorado-style" IPA entails, entirely, but as a PNW supremacist it doesn’t do it for me.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Pours a rich amber with copper and red tones. Medium white head with littel lacing. The smell is piney, sweet resin hops. A punch of hop, right in the front. If mellows as your palate gets accustomed to the intensity. A definite session brew.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle from a variety 12 pack purchased at EZ Liquors. Pours a clear copper amber with a large fluffy off white head that had some nice lasting power. Aroma was a suprise with a nice dose of subtle, yet fresh, floral and citrus hops, some malty grains as well. Body is very thin and watery with a quick fading bitter aftertaste. Flavor is mostly citrus and floral hops. I was very suprised by this and might actually grab some more, definitely would if the body was just a tad fuller.
