3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer pours a very clear golden color with a large white head, and the aroma blends citrus and resin hops with some light biscuity notes. The taste is mildly bitter and mildly sweet with more of the bitterness becoming momentarily pronounced in the aftertaste. The palate fuses a slick texture, medium-light body, and an average carbonation.

On Tap at the River Room, Whole Foods, Boise Slightly hazy golden orange with a thin fleeting of white head. Classic pungent hop bitter aroma. Hop forward flavors lots of citrus and pine flavors. The Simcoe really makes it I think. A little thick on the palate and a pleasant lingering bite. A hefty sipper .

On tap at Rozi’s. $14 growler. Smell is very dank, has green flash written all over it from the begining. Nice golden color, solid off white head. Flavor is more dank hops, weed, grass, resin. There is a hint if new belgiums fruitiness. Some malt in there and some savory garlic-food thing. Nice, good and drinkable.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
On tap at the magic tree, nice place for tasting rare beers on tap. OK, so whats the up with super? Does that mean better behaved or more like a rude? Go figger. next is ultra ipa. Looks like any other beer, pale yellow. Has typical low co2 feel on the tongue;. Mouth coating fresh oily feel, like liquid soap. BO on the aroma, such a contemporary ipa thang. Bittermedicine on the tongue what else can be said? Super or not this is terrible on ipa style. Green chewing on rinds grapefruit. Not as rude as most ipa but make no mistake, this is kick ass. Probably least appreciative beer today.

On tap at PreFunk. Hop resin rules the day, overload of pine, dry sappy bitterness. Slightly hazy pour with small creamy white head. Hops on the nose and full force in the taste. Dry sweet finish. This is what IPAs are all about.

Medium body. Creamy-to-oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter, somewhat astringent finish. (Feel - 3.75)
This beer had its’ moments, but not one of the top Alpine IPA’s I’ve had. (I know it was a collaboration). Still decent though. (Overall - 3.88)
