3fourths (8238) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2010
draft. clear honey colored body. resinous pine sap and orange oil flavor with an aroma that’s pretty much the same. mostly pale malt but it seems to have a resinous/chewy/caramel character, and with the high alcohol it seems to be just too bulky and full for the style.

pinkzambia (1530) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Tap: Clear yellow-gold color. White fizzy head with spotty lacing. Aroma of lots of hops, citrus, grapefruit rind, and inside of a box. Bitter grapey taste. Pretty thin and watery for an IPA.

Can at home courtesy of adnielsen. I hate you Aaron. Appearance is clear copper with a small white head and great lacing. Old bread, grapefruit, rotted fruit peel, oranges, and caramelly aroma. Taste is caramel, stale malt, somewhat tangy, grapefruit peel, oranges, cereal, metallic, and light citrus with a medium bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. This one is way past its prime.

Tap @ Sanford’s. So I’m having a bit of a reminiscence drinking this bet. The very first time I went white water rafting was in the Snake River. Not too bad.

jcr (2221) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Draft and can. Clear golden body with frothy white head. Raw, leaf hops dominate the aroma. Notes of resin, toasted grain. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Plant taste on top of husky grain. Chewy. Tastes of resin. Little finesse. Not my favorite type of IPA.

Beaver (1344) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2012
12 oz can. Pours clear orange copper with a medium pillowy white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet tropical fruits and dank hops and some pepper.

The flavor is a little sweet fruit with some dank earthy hops and a big charred lightly metallic bitterness that lingers. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, it could have been a decent dank IPA, but I couldn’t get past overwhelming charred metallic bitterness in the finish.

On tap at the brewery - gold in color with a minimal head. Not much of a nose but what’s there is floral. Hoppy and dry.
