An okay IPA, hop forward and crisp. Medium bodied with a little citrus, but mostly grass and pine. Bottle from the parents from their trip to Alberta in 2015.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
APPEARANCE ? super clear, light golden color and white head.
NOSE ? discernable earthy hop. Not overpowering, very light.
FLAVOR ? not much stands out. Slightly bitter, but in a fairly plain way.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Quite dark for an IPA, so despite the sharp label and name hinting at brightness I am not expecting anything too bright now. Has a floral hop note and a sweet biscuity dark malt. Sweeter, fruity and there’s a light brown sugar sweetness. It’s okay, but just too much dark malt.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden with a thin head. Citrus aroma with hints of flowers. Mild hoppiness with a sweet malt undertone. More of standard APA than IPA. The waiter at the Cooke City Cafe said he didn’t like most IPAs but liked this beer. Makes sense.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber pour with a single finger head. Aroma is really light, not much there at all. Medium mouth, very pleasing. Taste is a bit grainy for an IPA. Lots of cereal and biscuit notes. Lots of lace. A little bitterness in the finish, mostly grassy hop notes.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear orange.. Short lived white head.. Nose is fruity hops with a fair amount of toasty/pale maltiness.. Flavor seems a little spongy.. soft hops and soft maltiness, neither of which combine to make a great IPA.. Perhaps a decent pale ale.. Lighter than needed bitterness to put a stop to the weird fruity element... Decent drinkability for one glass, I won’t buy one again until I am again in Montana.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours an orange-amber color with a one finger head of just off white bubbly foam. The head has a moderate level of retention, fading to leave a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of bready and doughy smell mixed with a good showing of a grapefruit hop citrus aroma. Some other aromas of a sweeter orange and light caramel are there too, along with a decent sum of a yeasty smell as well.
Taste – The taste begins a somewhat bready and doughy taste with a good showing of a yeasty flavor. There is a bit of a grapefruit hop that is present upfront, which is rather light and which grows in intensity as the flavor moves onto the end. Along with the grapefruit, comes some lighter notes of an earthy and herbal hop taste. In the end, the mix of flavors that persists, creates a rather easy going and slightly more malty and bready, but decently hopped, flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly thicker side for a brew of 5.5 % abv with a carbonation level that is average. For the citrus and bready/doughy/yeasty flavor of the brew the thicker body is rather appropriate and all the while does well for accentuating the more moderate hop flavors of the brew.
Overall – Not really a hop powerhouse but rather easy drinking and nice in its bready/yeasty/citrus/hop flavor. An easy drinking moderate IPA overall.
