On tap at Craft Beer Co. orange gold clear thin white. Bit syrupy on aroma. Bit too alcohol too syrupy. Dry and bitter on end. Too strong for me. All the others have hidden heat in the mouth.

Was in the mood for an IPA and uhh... yeah. This delivered. Classic West coast chewing-on-a-grapefruit-rind-in-a-pine-forest quaff. If you like that kind of thing, you’ll love it. If not, don’t bother. For me it was about perfect, hence the high marks.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
At Avery Strong Ale Fest 2013--golden hued with a slight chill haze. Aroma of sickly lupuliny greasy resinous hops. Way too west coast for me. Just pure hop oil on the nose. Flavor is kinda the same. Tastes like ganja and floral resin and leafy lupulin. I love IPAs but this is kinda gross.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Boulder Strong Ale Fest 2013. Pours a golden orange appearance with a cream colored head. Fairly spicy, a bit dank, citrusy hoppy aroma with just a bit of garlic. The garlic and onion come through a little more on the finish after being blasted by tropical fruits and ganja and spicy hops. Great stuff.
