On draft at Mountain Sun. My buddy raved about this one. I found it to be just meh. Hoppy aroma, slight grapefruit, but it was sort of light in body and thin. Good but not great.

drewbeerme (3916) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Draft, pours amber with white head. Aroma has caramel and slight citrus hops. Flavors are malty, toasty, citrus, bit dank and pungent. Seemingly simple Maris otter and simcoe/Columbus , not a big hop presence but not real sweet either.

TronnyJenkins (92) - Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Last (6th) sample here at M.S. quite good. Almost musty, piney aroma. Smooth mouth, full and bitter flavor. Finishes bitter like any strong IPA should!

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2012
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.
