3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at the Isis restaurant, this pours amber with a large ice cream head that retains well, leaving whipped lacing. The nose is light and floral. Flavors of citrus and floral hops kept in check. Lightly bitter finish with a super quaffable medium body and smooth mouthfeel. Well-balanced and complex for days, but so easy to drink. Excellent.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour on tap at the CO rare beer tasting 2012, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of dank grass, pine, slight orange, grapefruit notes, hints of caramel, toffee, spice notes to balance, nothing over the top. Taste is similar, balanced mix of caramel and toffee with wet hop notes of pine, dank hop, slight grass, hints of a citrus peel, finishing fairly bitter. Just ok.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium sized off white head with fair retention and lacing. Lightly hazy, copper, amber hue. Nose is gentle with citrus and pine, lil leafy with some iced tea notes. Body is med/light with a somewhat prickly carbonation, lil oily, sorta thin. Decent citrus hop flavors with a bit much iced tea for me, lil grainy. Dry finish with a tame bitterness.

Thanks, Jeff! Dark orange/copper pour, certainly well darker than expected for a wet hop beer. Nice floral nose, though not especially pungent. Sticky lacing promises the sweet taste, and it’s not got quite enough bitter balance for me to rank it too highly. But overall a solid enough beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home with my dad. Pour is clear, dark, copper with a frothy white head and great lacing. Floral hops, caramel, vegetal, light resin, weed, grapefruit peel, and orange in the aroma. Taste is smooth, caramel, grapefruit, light grass, flowers, and bread with a very light bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium with soft carbonation. Not a bad beer, but more like a light APA, than an IPA. The hop flavors are there but somewhat subdued and very smooth.

Great hops nose, floral, citrus, and dank resin...all of it. Dark gold and pillowy fading head. Well balanced, but a bit thin on the palate. Terrific fresh hop and great to see it’s all local to CO...represent!

#20, orange/gold pour with some nice and spicey hoppy aroma. A little bitterness, but malts balance it well and it has a good mouthfeel. Very pleasant IPA.
