Unlike everyone else I could not rate this very high... I’m not a big IPA fan to begin with but this way too hoppy and piney to even finish a bottle. I’m going to the O’Dells brewery in Fort Collins CO in a couple of weeks so this will be one to avoid!

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2015 12oz pour from fifty degree bottle into Spiegelau IPA glass. Great fluffy off-white head. Large, pillowy, and lasting. Just short of clear, nice carbonation, beautiful ruby/dark amber. Nose is nice-- a bit of malts, a bit of pine, a little floral, a little sweet. Nothing too strong. Mouthfeel is alright, though a bit thin. Taste is good. Several layers here. Strong malty base with distinct pine and hoppy bitterness on top. Some floral notes and a bit of fruity sweetness (berries?). A little taste of alcohol on the end as it warms. Overall a strong and enjoyable beer.

I don't usually like ipa's, but I do like this one. Probably the citrus. This is a keeper. :-)

Bottle, shared on TvM’s Bachelor Party NW Ale Trail Expedition. Deep red-orange, richly malty, sweet and bready with lovely ripe tropical fruit hop character, piney undertones. An excellent India Red Ale-- I liked it better than their IPA (which was also great).

Fruity aroma. Rich amber in color with a creamy head. Rather sweet with some toasty hops and a nice note of citrus. Extremely smooth and drinkable.

Red pour with a one finger tan head.malty aroma ,no hops aroma. Taste is overly sweet with very little hops flavor. Not worth the effort

12oz bottle poured into a Tulip at 40°. Color is a clear bright amber with mellow carbonation and soft off white head. Aroma has a fresh hop scent backed by sweet malt. It has a medium body that give a light crisp mouth feel. Flavor comes in with mild sweet malt and white pepper then the hops jump in with a nice citrus and mellow bitterness. In the after taste the hops briefly spike which brightens the citrus, then it finishes with a lingering bitterness. Overall it’s a great brew, very well balanced.
