Poured up at the Denver Airport location into an ice cold glass, darn-it! when will I learn that this WILL be coming in frigid glass wear? It has a clear copper ice cold body with thin gold edges and a thin tan head of foam. The aroma doesn’t have much to offer due to the serving temperature. As it finally warmed a touch I got some citrus hops as well as some earthy to vague bitter resiny hop notes too. The taste starts pretty smooth with a mix of sweet malts and malt sweetened citrus hops. It then moves toward a moderate level of citrus hop bitterness that rides the mild sweetness into the finish. As it warms I’m getting soft caramel malts or maybe its biscuit malts that seem out of place and muddles the experience. Is that why they serve it so cold?

Sampled at the brewpub. Clear gold. An almost white head. Floral aroma. Not a lot. More flavor Simcoe complexity. Thistles. Fruit and that kind of spiciness. That is a hard hop to describe. It is a bit earthy. Rich sweet malts take this into sweet territority. Not bad at all.

On tap at the downtown Denver location. Pour is clear orange with a frothy white head and great lacing. Tropical fruity, orange peel, melon, grass, grapefruit, biscuit, and straw in the aroma. Taste is grapefruit, honeydew, grass, citrus rind, bread, and light alcohol with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Not a bad IPA.

Draft pour at Denver location. Pours gold with a thin white head and foamy lacing. Smells of citrus, hops, light pine. Flavor is a mix of tropical and citrusy fruits, like lemon and grapefruit, mild hops and a bitter dry finish. Decent session IPA if you're into that.
