Very good ipa for being so strong. The hoppy flavor is great and well worth a try!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Drove from Montana to Baltimore with beer not in cooler, so maybe not the best showing. Starts sweet-the sweetness that’s hard to avoid in high alcohol beers-with a healthy dose of bitter at the finish. Nice amber color, not super deep or complex in flavor but a nice IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at brewpub in Belgrade, MT. Deep orange, stringy foam head. Funky, drying sweat nose. Big funky citrus hops. A larger DIPA, first I’ve found on trip. A bit ovv-sour before fruity bitter finish. Nice effort but not great.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Munsemj.
Pours a nice hazy golden with thin white, fluffy head.
Great hop aroma and good taste. Very smooth for being 9% abv. A nice DIPA for sure.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewery. Medium to dark orange. Thin but sticky head. This drinks with a bitter and earthy character, the bitterness really stark in the finish. Pretty easy to drink for 9% but not living up to their "rich grapefruit" promise. (#4654, 7/5/2012)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pale copper pour with a thin beige head. Lots of sticky lacing. Floral and citrus aroma is rather potent. Flavor profile is full of citrus, lighter in the florals, and strong in the caramel malts. Really has a solid malty backbone. Lingering hops. Good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy orange amber with a lasting lightly golden creamy head. Aroma is nice: light pine and tangerine peel. Bitter citrus hops and lightly toasty malts play nicely on the palate. Long bitter finish. Smooth, almost creamy mouthfeel. I’ve had a few beers from these guys, and this is the first one that rises above mediocre. I like the light toastiness.

Tap @ Montana Ale Works. Hazy orange pour with a short off-white head leaving minimal lace. Light pine nose. Medium body with a lovely fine, creamy carbonation. Toasted pumpernickel, spruce and grapefruit, and heaps of umami and bitterness in the finish.
