3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery, GABF week 2014. Copper color. mild hop aroma nd flavor. Dry, bitter hops and a solid malt base. Well balanced with the malt; I thought it was more of an American Pale Ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks for the can, Erin.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing speckling and then sliding into the beer.
The smell had a decent amount of light sweet citrus to brighten into a slight bittersweet piney - ness.
The taste was bittersweet citrus to include the piney hops and eventually allows a decent light caramel malt to it.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp but still carried a decent subtle smoothness to it.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA that I could have again.

Picked up a 12 oz can. Amber color with a white head that goes away quickly. Good pine aroma masks the diacetyl to a point. Once it warms up, the butter aroma becomes more apparent. But luckily itís drinkable and I put it down quickly.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours brown with orange hues and white head. Aroma is bready, earthy, grapefruit, very grainy. Taste is very caramel, balanced, toasty. Pretty flat, but has great flavor. This is fantastic, not sure why itís getting rated so harshly- itís great!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty aroma with some floral hops. Taste is malty. Maybe slightly roasted malt with a descent hop balance. Full flavored well made ipa. Prefer a bit of a different hop profile but it is solid.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the brewery. Pours a clear copper color with a very thin white head. Not much from the aroma. Some hops. Light flavor. Hops and some tart with a slight sense of malt. Lacking in the flavor for an IPA. But it has enough to pass.

On tap at the brewery. Golden amber and clear with a white head. Fresh tropical fruit, citrus hops, caramel and pine aroma. Similar flavor, sweet and bitter, a nice balance. Medium body with a lingering finish.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at brewery. Very bland pale watery ipa with no hops. Not a good beer. No aroma, maybe a bad batch?

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
@ South Denver Beer Fest 2013. Slightly hazy golden with an assertive aroma of grapefruit citrus and pine. Flavor is a little heavy on pine but has a smooth floral tone underneath. A tad too acidic and west-coasty.
