mensch (289) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Clear orange-copper color. Mild aroma, I’d like a lot more, spicey pine. Some floral hop flavors. Smooth, very clean, and more malty than bitter, hint of butterscotch in the finish. Definitely leaning toward the British style. An intro-IPA for those who think they don’t like "bitter" beer.

Skinnyviking (8958) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2016
Sample at the brewery. High creamy lasting white head. Hazy dark amber body. Fruity apple pear aroma and flavor with a dry bitterness. Fair amount of hops used. Low carbonation, long finish.

Good hop character and influence but was mostly citrusy. Potently bitter and very refreshing. Had at the brewer on tap. A little thin on the tongue but good finish.

ajnepple (5222) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Orange to amber and clear in appearance with a lacy white head. Aroma of citrus hops, spruce, toasted grain, light toffee and light caramel malt. Similar flavor, moderate piney and zesty hop bitterness balanced by a light malty sweetness with a light dry, light bitter finish. Medium bodied, pretty clean and pretty easy to drink. Solid IPA overall.

3fourths (9150) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Draft. Clear Amber with a short white head. Aroma impression is pine resin, caramel malt, toffee, nuts, butterscotch / diacetyl. Basic and boring and a little dirty (dish rag / dirty water). Prickly acids, moderately sweet, medium+ bitterness, astringent finish.

onceblind (7506) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Clear brilliant dark gold with a copperish hue, under a thin foamy white head. Balanced nose of earthy leafy hops and blonde bready malt. The flavor brings a bit of citrus rind to the front with a touch of earthy leafy and floral hops, but the blonde maltiness and a hint of caramel and breadiness take over from there and finish with a semi dry bitterness and cracker tones.

arminjewell (9262) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought slight toast, caramel, slight spice, yeast, hints of grass, herbal and floral notes, touch of grainy notes in there. Taste is a mix of grass, biscuit, slight orange, hints of caramel, slight toasted malts, finishing fairly bitter, dry. Eh.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 7, 2013
On tap @ Loveland. Amber pour with a white head. Straw, citrus peel, orange, and caramel aromas. Herbal, piney hops, some wood, too. Flavor is sweet and heavy on the caramel. Woody hops, herbs, and pine. Orange and grapefruit peel. Decent bitterness on the finish.

Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pour is hazy amber with a big white head and grey lacing. Bready, goopy, caramelly, grapefruity, orange peel, doughy aroma. Taste is grapefruit peel, light spice, a touch of garlic, oranges, slightly resinous, and piney with a medium bitter finish. Sticky mouthfeel with high carbonation. Another subpar, run of the mill IPA.

nickypoobrown (5) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 12, 2012 does not count
I wanted this to be a little better. It has a nice citrusy aroma, clear,golden straw color, and nice lingering head with the carbonation accenting the hop bitterness. The flavor falls a little flat. The bitterness is strong and not balanced. The malt character is very low and it makes the beer seem one note. It has potential. They do a couple great beers and I hope this improves as they grow.
