Beautiful glowing orange-copper color. Plenty of hop bouquet, pine, grapefruit, perfume, and more. Really a mixed up mess of aromas, but in in a good way. I really like the low carbonation level. It makes it easier to enjoy the flavors without the interference of nasty carbonic acid. Uncompromisingly bitter, with just enough sweet carmel to offset. Love it.

Beaver (1219) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2013
12 oz can. Pours clear reddish amber with a medium creamy off white head that goes to a thin film and laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet crystal malts with some piney fruity hops.

The flavor is sweet candy malts with some tropical fruit and piney resiny hops with medium bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation and a bit watery.

Overall, a nice IPA. It’s a bit sweet for me, but I like the hop flavors.

wchesser (1003) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Deep orange brown. Nose is initially pretty nice: grapefruit, floral hops, some resin, but then kind fell apart. Taste is mostly on the bitter dank side, with an off chemically unclean finish. Would take it in a pinch depending on what else is on offer, but would probably rather just pass.

notalush (4631) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Hazy light amber - low carbonation, but a moderate lace - aroma of orange oil, caramel, grapefruit - low carbonation, watery/thin body - besides that, the flavor is decent - moderate sweet citrus/orange flesh, earthy and peppery hops - moderately resinous - there is a heavy/clunky caramel sweetness which I tend not to like in my ipas anymore - finish is leafy and fairly bitter, bordering on astringent, but only mildly so - a mixed bag.
