Did someone ask for hops? Tired of beers that promise a full lupulin experience, but never deliver more than richly malted bitterness? Itís no secret that this is what we excel at. Weíve been brewing world class IPAs for years. Our flagship is the culmination of a decades worth of studying and brewing. Take a step above and acclimate to what an IPA should be.

Poured from a tall can into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a full, somewhat dark clear amber color with a large foamy white head with average retention, and good cling and lacing. Its aroma featured grapefruit and citrus flavors, along with some grainy and grassy hops, and a bit of yeast and light sugary notes. The taste was strongly bitter and grainy, with only a light touch of citrus flavors, and some grassy and earthy components, and a very strong hops presence. It was a very dry beer in the mouth, with a thick mouthfeel and body, along with average carbonation, and a presence of alcohol.

Clear bright copper like a new penny, under a pillowy white head. Big lovely hoppy nose of fresh floral hops and American dank piney resins with a little orange pith. Lovely and smooth flavor thatís quite zesty and citrusy but also resiny and earthy, a touch piney with some fresh floral tones. Really smooth with a just-right amount of pale malty linger, and a balanced bitterness throughout.

Pint can. Tropical fruit aroma with notes of citrus hops and a touch of pine. Pours clear golden colored with a large off white head with excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with tropical fruit flavor most notably pineapple with some grapefruit citrus hoppiness as well. Finishes dry but still quite smooth with some piney hop bitterness. Nice, refreshing IPA!

Ernest (7252) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 15, 2016
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow to light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, orange, resin, apricot), with notes of onion and alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic, lightly astringent. Fairly ordinary hop aroma, leaning towards tropical but not quite getting there...mostly just the usual citrus and resin, and unfortunately the all-too-common onion stink of so many modern IPAs. Pretty nice mouthfeel, weightier than most IPAs. A bit harsh in the flavor balance department, though...the sweetness is little match for the strong bitterness and significant acidity...it becomes a bit tiring in a short time. Not bad but nothing special in this over-saturated field.

Great IPA from can. Very enjoyable balance of hop taste and aroma. No wonder it was a gold medal winner. Enjoy!

Pours a honey orange clear color, head is 1/4th of an inch and off white. Lacing and head retention are very good. Smell is big on fruit; pineapple, mango, guava, to name a few. Getting a bit of rye malt also. A bit of sweet malt balances the bitterness. Alcohol is pretty light. Taste is spicy and bitter. Getting lots of citric acid, pineapple, and pine resin. Reminds me of pineapple sculpin but even better. Peppery aftertaste is present, alcohol is light. Mouthfeel is light bodied and highly carbonated. Head added a nice froth to the body of the beer. Ends kinda astringent. Overall this was a great Ipa, bright tropical notes mixed with acidic hops. Body and mouthfeel were spot on, would definitely buy again.

16 oz can. Pours clear copper gold with a big bubbly white head that retains well and laces the glass some

. The aroma is dank resiny piney hops with a little fruit and malt.

The flavor is tons of dank resiny piney hops hops that linger through the finish. Thereís a touch of sweet fruit initially that is quickly overwhelmed. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a nice in your face hop bomb.
