@Mountain Beerfest-on tap-pours a thin off white head and copper color. Aroma is dry, bitter hops. Taste is dry, bitter hops (simcoe, summit, a little cascade), token medium malt. Did I say dry? OK carbonation.

This is a great sessionable IPA. All the bases are covered here. Great balance, with lots of ctirus acidity, hoppy bitterness that lends alot of great fruit flavors, with a realy clean malt body that I could stand to have been a little more powerful, but still this is a really well done take on the style.

Growler via scrizz. Opened with a spirited hiss...which is a good start. Pours clear orange caramel color with a thin tight head that settles to a ring around my glass. Pretty nice nose of very tropical fruity. Peppery, pine, grassy hops notes on the end. The flavor is very ’compact’ on the ipa spectrum, by that I mean no flavors are really over powering or stand-outish. Nice malt and bittering up front with some citrus fruit over shadowing and then dusty bittering on the end. Decent stuff that I would like to try fresh. Thanks Clint.

Type: Draft Glass: 23-oz. glass From: Old Chicago in Boise, Idaho Price: $5 (happy hour) Purchased: Dec. 18, 2013 Consumed: Dec. 18, 2013 Misc.: N/A Poured a caramel orange murky color with two fingers of khaki white head when I got it. Tons of thick foamy lacing on the sides. Great retention all the way down. Smelled citrus hops, grapefruit, tangerine, orange, floral hops and sweet caramel. Very good overall. Tasted similar to the nose. Got bitter grapefruit (citrus) hops, orange, caramel, Cascade hops and floral hops. Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish. Just a very good beer. Boise definitely has some good beer.

THis is a big, hoppy citric IPA. Amber color, clear. sampled at RBSG 04. Even though the commercial description says it’s well balanced, I found it to be a one dimensional hop monster.

argo0 (11317) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 24, 2004
(RBSG04) Hazy amber body with off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, flora/orange. Taste is medium sweet. Highly unusual in that on the tongue it is strong bitter -- grapefruit, bit of herb; but the finish is fairly mild. Caramel also present. Medium body.

Orange mostly clear body with minimal head. Buckets of fresh hops in the aroma and some bready malt. Lightly nutty and quite citrusy with medium bitterness. Medium body dry finish. Not bad.

strong floral and citric nose and malt in the nose and flavor, solid construction; quite bitter and flavorful; smooth, clean, full bodied, fresh, and solid, but I need a Helldiver between these.
