COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This time of year in the Rockies, one day can span all four seasons. Morning snow gives way to afternoon sun, sending fresh snowmelt into our rivers and into our mash tun. With a complex malt backbone dry hopped for notes of citrus and pine, itís almost as surprising as the season itself.

12oz bottle from Aaron. Pours a deep, ruby-amber color with an off white head and a little lacing. Aroma is hoppy, pine, citrus, grapefruit. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, bready, toffee, citrus, grapefruit hops, with a light, bitter, hoppy finish. Very tasty amber.

OzarkElmo (308) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Pours a deep copper with sizable beige head. Hops and malt on the nose with a very, very malty mouthfeel. Slightly bitter finish. A bit too malty for someone who may love hops. Flavorful, different. A malty amber with a kick of hops.

Steve_0 (3661) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle at home poured into my HF wine glass. Appearance is glowing red with a fluffy cream head and great lacing. Big sweet, caramelly aroma, grapefruit, toffee, sweet fruits, red licorice, orange peel, and bread; pretty damn sweet. Taste is big grapefruit, orange, bread, caramel, grass, somewhat sweet, and soapy with a big bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Really sweet upfront, with a somewhat doughy middle, with great hoppy notes, and a huge bitter bite. Well-done.

bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear, deep amber with a medium, beige, frothy head and some lacing. Aroma is caramel malt and some grassy hops. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, and toffee with a lot more earthy, grassy hops than expected though still very even with hop bitterness contained. Light to medium body with soft carbonation. Very good for the style.

mensch (289) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Growler from the taproom. Really pretty red-brass color with nice foam lacing down the glass. Evident dry-hopping, citrus and pine aroma. Easy drinking style (What is amber anyway?) Plenty of malt backs up the big bitter hop finish. Iíd call it an IRA- India Red Ale.

Gription79 (2750) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is caramel, citrus, toasted malts. The flavor is similar with American citrusy hops and a caramel toasted malt character. I really enjoy this beer.

Ericular (891) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2014 Didnít realize I had tasted this one before, quite a while back. Interestingly enough, I gave it the exact same scores all-around. I love it when that happens. My previous rating was in my beer infancy. This is pretty plain overall, both for an IPA and a red IPA.

Hoppier than expected. Citrus and caramel, pretty carbonated. Nice color, decent beer. 7+4+7+3+12
