4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12.oz bottle poured to tulip. Man-o-man this is such a go to for the IPA lover! This dream pours a light hazy orange and has a thin white quickly dissipating head. The aroma is where the awesomeness of this IPA first shows itself. It’s a fresh hop assault! From barnyard earthiness to pineapple, guava, mango, grapefruit, tangerine and bubblegum..it’s in there! There is a whiff of cracker like malt..but this is about the hops! Floral and juicy, fresh citrus and that inherent grounding earthiness. This not a palate wrecker but rather a showcase of hop profiles.
The bitterness is invigorating in play with all of the hop flavors and the subtle malt sweetness. I rave. The carbonation is light and this really is dangerously smooth. This is an accessible and expertly made beer. Enjoy and keep this in your rotation!

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.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle Pours a medium-to dark gold with a high, lacy, coarse-grained cream-colored head. Nose is very clean -- camphor, spruce, mint, grapefruit. Flavor is as clean; sharply defined, elegantly balanced between bitterness, citric sourness, and an almost butterscotch malty sweetness. Finish remains sweetness -- a touch too sweet for me, this beer’s only flaw. Excellent.
