Deep amber pour, thin light toffee head. Nose is deep malt and hops. Bittersweet. Middle is nice caramel malt body. Finish is balanced hop bitterness. This is truly a tribute to both mat and hops.

Draft sample. Amber in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of white grapefruit, wildflowers, pale malt, and a bit of spruce. Fairly well balanced between the citric hops, pale and caramel malts on the palate. Medium/light bodied with a firm minerally finish. An above average IPA.

Bottle at the Breen's in Snowmass- pours clear amber with beige head. Some citrus, caramel malts and some musty notes. Kind of meshed bitter, earthy hop and malt profile. The finish is ok but there's a thinish body that just doesn't work for me here.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Btl pours ruby red with a slight haze. Massive off white billowing head that retains stature for quite some time.Head leaves huge amounts of lace on glass. Smells of pine,resin,citrus,tea leaves, bread,fresh baked cookies and a hint of alcohol.Tastes of sweet roasted malt,toffee,pine, grapefruit and mandarin oranges. Medium body,smooth creamy texture, tingling carbonation and a dry, lightly astringent, bitter finish. Very nice fresh hop flavors that work extremely well with the malts. An exceptionally smooth red ale that isn’t overly sweet. Well done!

From 12oz bottle @Braukunst Live München. Pours a delightfully misty, decently cabonated pink-red. Ieal balance between subtle caramel malts and mainly grapefruit zest hop bitterness. Chunky backbone as with those other prime IPA examples from CO by Dale’s, while remaining fairly dry. Almost organic candy, such easy drinking.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a rich dark brown with a lacy, creamy light brown head. The nose is dry Kaffir lime, spice, and floral notes. Sweetness up front -- almost like fresh orange juice -- then the dry, astringent hops kick in and close off the tongue, leaving the finish clean and crisp and a bit short. Lovely.
