Clear yellow orange pour with a big lasting white head. Aroma is citrus rind, pine, and resin. Taste follows with a nice caramel sweetness to balance out the clean bitterness. Piney aftertaste. Medium body. Nice IPA.

Beautiful citrus bright leafy aroma! Light amber pour. Instant refreshment on the start. Bitterness is definitely present but not over poured. Perfect ipa.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2015 I am absolutely bias in favor of this IPA. Even if they’re biting on the style of Anchor’s bottle label with the elephant. It is GOOD, oh so good. This is a hoppy IPA with a good old bang of hop. The battle in your mouth is over your soul. Enjoy my friends. There are times the boozy taste will hit, just swallow. This is one of my Favorite IPA’s. Yet another great reason to visit Fort Collins, Colorado.

Grapefruit and satsuma. Nice bitterness as required for 7%. Not malty at all. Green tea?

Tap at Old Chicago Plymouth. Pseudo pint glass. Always a big fan of this beer so surprised I haven’t rated it to date. Hazy copper color with solid lacing and frothy head. Aroma heavy on citrus and hops. Pine and resin present. Bright, refreshing taste with a pleasant mouthfeel. Slight bitterness with a good balance of subtle sweetness. A go to option when available.

Feel: extremely dry. Medium carbonation. Thin mouth feel. Leaves a nice film on the mouth.
Overall: great beer. Like the overwhelming hops and and how it adds to the dryness. Also like how it makes you want another sip after you drink it.

12oz bottle pours a yellow amber color with a bit of head. Lots of piney hops that linger a long time after. Refreshing IPA.
