I don’t like IPA’s and although this was not the worst IPA i’ve had it still wasn't an enjoyable experience. It is musty red with a decent head. It looked better than it tasted. It had an aftertaste of ice tea.

Bottle Pours a light golden nice think head and robust lacing. Classic hoppy IPA aroma. Temp is a bit warm but nice full, smooth almost buttery flavor and very good hoppy pucker power. Back of the throat astringent bitter feeling that stays with you. IPAs are not my fav but this is not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer after renouncing its connection with the 12 ounce bottle sets in the glass a limpid amber color with a portly bright white head and it is spumous in texture as it slowly transmogrifies the lace forms a fine skirt to conceal the glass. Nose has a nice floral aroma with a sweet malt backing and the start sweet with the top middling in feel. Finish has a moderate acidity and the hops pertinent in their spiciness, quite dry aftertaste that lingers long on the palate, nice and refreshing beer on a hot Arizona Summer day.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lightly hazy golden hue with small white head and some lace. The aroma hints of piney and floral hops, light grapefruit, orange, and buttery roasted malts. The taste starts moderately bitter with anic epine bite. Good balance with some sweet malts and bready tones. Also detected a fruity citrus note. The mouthfeel is lively, refreshing and a tad dry. A good quaffable IPA, easy on the palate. Thanks Jordan.

Golden orange out of the bottle with floaties (but it was just shipped to me and I wasn't patient enough for it to really settle). Sweet floral pine nose. Orange citrus sweetness with berry, pine and some orange rind bitterness in the finish. Body was a little thinner than I expect in an IPA, but it went down very easily. Nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden hue. Bubbly carbonation. Fluffy white head. Fruity, earthen hop nose. Pale grainy malts carry over on a light bodied palate with clean crisp hop ending. A very drinkable and pleasantly balanced session IPA. Thanks Chris for grabbin this one!

Ended up with six of these when I meant to buy the Teton Ale, figured it couldn't hurt to try it. Nice (if subdued) earthy and citrus fruit nose carries over to the flavor. Nothing especially notable about this brew, but it is well rounded and drinkable. Nicer beer to look at and smell than to drink.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Straight forward filtered amber color with light head and a little lacing. The aroma is fairly hoppy, not too bad, citrusy and well rounded. Flavor is balanced and maybe a little bland. Finishes ok, bland but spicey. Eh, not too bad. Go Idaho!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2012 Smells of mild cascade hops, with some sweet lemon and mandarin orange. Taste is a bit hearty and
of sour orange peel. Spicy and thick, and an OK IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pale amber with a very thin white head that fled quickly. Pleasing floral hop aromas, some citrus and malts. Bitterness starts the flavor going into a some lemon, finishing bitter once again. Pretty nice IPA
