3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is in the face hops, citrus, and pine. Exceedingly pleasant, I immediately want to sip it. Appearance is pale yellow, light carbonation. Taste is an upfront hit of bitterness, but mellows quickly and has a lingering complexity. Overall one of my favorite amongst the IPAs.

Tap: clear yellow gold with a fine bubbly white head. Aromas of musty vegetables, celery, and hops. Quite thin for a 2ipa - extreme bitterness and a touch of sweetness with a prolonged bitter aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
For being bright yellow this is a big beer, pours with no head taste is dense oily grapefruit citrusy lemon peel. Green grassy, very hoppy but pretty well balanced with a lot of malt. A little alcoholic once warmer but very good

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear golden-amber, with a medium off-white head, very fine clinging lacing. Aromas of grass, pine, grapefruit, bread, caramel, and a very light fruity aroma. Medium-full body, medium carbonation, dry. Some initial sweetness, spicy and mildly bitter mid-palate, lasting strong bitter finish. Aggressively bitter, and more complex than their IPA, this is a hit. I hope they brew another batch again soon.

Draft at the Falling Rock Taphouse in Denver, CO.

Sweet citrus hop aroma with dry, resinous earthy pine notes. Bursting with tropical fruit and citrus. Lots of mango, papaya, grapefruit and orange peel. Pale grainy malt with biscuit and graham cracker.
Medium bodied but on the fuller end with a good balance of bitter dry earthy hops up front that are countered by sweet citrus/tropical fruit. Lots of citrus fruit especially orange peel and grapefruit, mango, pinepalle and papaya. Slight alcohol heat toward the finish.
