3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Mtn Sun. Pours a hazy copper with a half finger of offwhite head. Good retention, especially for an IPA, some lacing. Hoppy, citrus, fruity aromas. Mild hop bitterness up front, builds a little, Fades into a malty, almost fruity finish. Moderate carbonation and medium carbonation. Delicious and drinkable, but could be a little hoppier for an IPA. An awesome beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. A slightly cloudy gold color with a foamy white head and lacing. It has a great citrus and pine aroma. The same hop notes show up in the flavor, and there is just enough malt to mellow the bitterness.
