An ok run of the mill IPA. Kind of a watery pour w/ a foamy white head. Aroma has a subtle hop presence. Taste is fairly bitter w/ a smooth finish. Drinkable but forgettable!

Bottle. Citrus aroma with notes of pine resins and a touch of hops. Pours light golden colored with a thin white head and very little lacing. Smooth to start out with all malt flavors and not much else. Finishes dry with a hint of grapefruit fruitiness and hops. Pine resiny flavors stick to the palate after. Atypical IPA but fairly enjoyable.

This is a pretty basic IPA. Lots of pine and a bit of citrus. the malts are understated.

Sledutah (5096) - Utah, USA - JUL 23, 2013
12oz bottle picked up at Total Beverage
Pours cloudy orange with a small white head, light spotty lacing. Aroma of dusty caramel and pine. Flavors of sweet dusty caramel, earthy and pine
Too malty and sweet for me, bitter pine.

7% and 99 IBUís makes this beer a hop loverís dream! Nice and cloudy pour with a great aroma. Only thing that would make this beer better is if it were more accessible. Donít see it often enough in my local area (Boulder/Longmont) but when I do a 6 pack comes home with me!

Tap at Grand Lake. Thoroughly underwhelming. Light pine, lots of caramel in the nose. Sweet body, sticky biscuit (ewwww), sap. Blech.

12 oz bottle pours amber with a bit of a white head. Citrus and pine on the aroma, but not very strong, with some cardboard. Flavor is the same. A bit undercarbed and slightly oxidized.

BeerandBlues2 (10039) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear amber with an average, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is fragrant floral, citrus, and pine hops, cookie and biscuit malt with tropical fruity esters. Flavor is heavy hops and moderate bitterness, malt sweetness, and fruity esters with a dry and spicy finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Angelmonster (125) - Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2011
Pours a dark amber, lots of carbonation, and head was pretty small and disappeared fast. Lacing is almost non existent. Rather surprised since Ipas are known for their awesome lacing. First smells are of caramel malts and some diacetyls. Next comes some earthy hops with hints of fresh pine. No alcohol detected Taste is a mix of the earthy hops with some bready malts contrasting them. Not over the top bitter, this is almost a balanced beer but the hops do leave a piney aftertaste. For 7% abv, alcohol is well hidden. Mouthfeel is disappointing. Head died immediately, leaving much to be desired. Body was good, medium-bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Overall this beer was barely above average. Flavors were good, which is obviously most important, but appearance/smell/mouthfeel were all off point and kinda made the beer sloppy tasting. Yes, I just made up the phrase sloppy tasting. Only reason beer gets a 3.5 overall is because of the smoothness of the finish in relation to alcohol percentage. Would order again if my choices were severely limited but luckily in Colorado I never have that problem
