4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
My favourite IPA without a doubt. A perfect blend of both fruits and citrus and complex! The beer hits initially like a good IPA should, with hops, and then transends into a fruity after taste finished off with a final taste of spices. I wish I still lived in Fort Collins so I could get this fresh.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to jbye4334. Pours with a slightly hazed golden body and a large white head. Aroma of citrus, pine and hay. A bit of orange and a bit of an off dirty note. Taste is floral hops and juicy citrus. Pretty nice. Some ruby grapefruit. I like it! Light to medium bubbles. Dry finish. Quite smooth actually.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at I-Tap in Chesterfield, MO. Pours a slightly hazed gold with white head. Nose is lacking in individuality. Itís a bit muddled and too floral, lacking resiny notes. Some sweetness pokes through as well. On taste, itís a bit too sweet and not near bitter enough. Meh.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Color was orange with a white head. The smell was danky, resinous, and slightly pine. The smell is seriously hoppy. The taste was identical to the smell. Straight hop oils. Not much citrus, mostly dank. I was really surprised by this. this might be my new favorite from Colorado.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of my 3-4 favorite IPAís brewed locally here in CO. Lots of hops up front but not too overpowering. Very nice chewy mouthfeel that leaves the tongue sizzling. In my eyes this is Odellís masterpiece.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Pours a semi-clear, bright gold. Small white head fades rather quickly but a thin lace lingers.
Aroma: Quite aggressive aroma. Pungently floral up front but I really liked the lemon, grapefruit, citrus-y flavors towards the end. Nothing but hops here.
Taste: Quite refreshing! Bitter and hoppy from the get-go but finishes light, sweet, and citrus-y. Virtually no malt flavor.
Palate: Very light-bodied, lively carbonation and a very clean mouthfeel.
Overall: Another highly drinkable IPA, I think theyíre finally starting to grow on me :) Great hop flavor without being annoyingly bitter. Great mouthfeel and aftertaste so I almost want to savor the flavor, but itís so light and clean I canít fight the desire to indulge.

In the bottle at the 2008 Crescent Moon Summer Beer Fest. Pours bright milky gold with a thick white head. Outstanding cut grass hop green aroma. Thick and buttery mouth feel. This has the hop content of a double IPA. Thick lacing, great mouth feel. Chewy beer.

12 oz bottle, purchased at the brewery. holy crap, what an amazing ipa. huge, complex hop aroma, with grassy, resiny and citrus notes. similar, complex and punchy hop flavor, with a nice lasting bitterness left on the palate after swallowing. first class beer from a first class brewery.
