COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ready to buck convention? We took the traditional IPA, originally shipped from Englad to India in the 1700s, and made it bolder and more flavorful - American style. We've added new varieties of highly aromatic American hops to create a distinctive bitterness profile and an incredible hop character. Hop on, hold tight, and enjoy the ride!

Chrisco88 (9) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2010
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 they’re 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 it’s so light and clean I can’t fight the desire to indulge.

pours a nice dark gold to orange color with good creamy head. nice lacing on the glass. bottle appearance is enhanced with great label design. The hop based aroma has nice amounts of citrus, slight peach, and pine accents. Taste is a little sweet with some lasting bitterness in the after taste. Ver!y nice IPA . . .I would have another!

This beer has a freshness date on the bottle. This bottle has a clear pour, with lots of CO2. Upon immediate, closer inspection, you will see a yeast haze falling from the top! Colorado mountain stream gold flakes in color. There is a dense, creamy head on this beer, after a hard, straight pour at half-pour. Two fingers of pure dense, frothy cream. It has very large hops and yeast nose, the perfect craft brew aroma. It has a sharp bite from the fresh hops, and a nice subdued malt backbone that almost mellows out the bitterness in the middle of the mouth. It has an easy, dry finish that is bitter, with an abundance of citrus hops and possibly some peach. Its an amazing beer, so I bought a 12 pack, after sampling a 6 pack, and I am very satisfied. Imagine Pigmine on about 6-8 of these bad boys!

Orangish light amber brew that smells of citrus hops. Taste is mostly citrus with some pine. Really good IPA that I would buy again if it wasn’t for the higher price than other comparable IPA’s.

Looks very nice, the bottle artwork, enchanting aroma of honey, malts and quality aromatic hops that then we also find in the taste. Very well balanced. Exceptional beer.
