Strong aroma of citrusy hops. Smells malty but really isnít in the flavor. Smooth and mildly coating when it goes down. Canít taste the 7% at all. Really nice IPA, canít believe it took me so long to try this one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pflugerville, Tx - H.E.B. grocery store - 12 oz bottle. Hazy medium golden pour, fluffy, sticky, snow white head that leaves plenty of sticky lacing. Honeydew melon, hint of spruce in th aroma. Solid IPA flavor with some juicy citrus bitterness, some caramel sweetness, a touch of honeydew melon fruitiness. Odd, clay-like essence in the finish. Decently, thick mouthfeel. Nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle poured into an IPA glass. In my opinion, the best IPA made in Colorado. Pale orange color. Grapefruit, orange, and pine flavors and aromas. Really well balanced. About as good as it gets.

Bottle from Moscow Co-op. Clear burnt copper with frothy white head. Fresh bottle from the smell of this. Leafy, pine, grapefruit. Biscuit backing. Snappy. Medium body, oily texture, dry finish. Solid, well above average ipa.

Draft at Thunder and Buttons. Pours clear bright gold with a fizzy beige head. Tastes like grapefruit, caramel, resin, nutty malt, dry citrus hops. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like caramel, grapefruit, resin, citrus hops, and nutty malt.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beer improves with warming. Iím a fan of the more balanced brews and while the aroma here is suggestive of that, the rest doesnít quite follow through. Flavor leans bitter and finish continues with that. Very easy drinking brew. Iím looking forward to more.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at PreFunk. Seems tame after a IIPA, but straight forward. Hops not as big as expected, subdued. More resinous than citrus, but nicely blended overall. A bit maltier, but not too much bigger than an APA. I would consider this a good gateway IPA, but not rated as highly as represented here.

Golden yellow, resembling a pilsner in appearance. Piney and herbal aroma. Crisp and refreshing, not a hop bomb but definitely a great beer.
