4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Thanks to Chris. Extremely malty dry dusty with an extreme floral hoppiness. Pine with dry malt. Very intense, dry dusty bitter but great floral. Interesting!

12 oz can. Malt-forward ipa. Not much hop profile to speak of. Feel like a broken record, itís oxidized. Forgettable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, orange, apricot, resin). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, velvety/creamy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic, lightly astringent.
This is a touch acidic and husky in the flavor department, but the aroma and mouthfeel are nice...decent hop complexity that emphasizes fruity-citrusy characters instead of raw resin. Significantly better than usual for this brewery...the first that I find drinkable.

Telluride, CO - OAK Beer, Bourbon & BBQ - on tap. Dark copper pour, medium thick off-white head, decent lacing. Aroma has some solid spruce notes with a a hint of ripening vegetables to go along with it. Flavor has the requisite citrus bitterness, some caramel malty notes, a bit of ripening vegetable funkiness. Decently thick mouthfeel. Solid IPA. Amazing setting at the base of the gondola that takes you up to Mountain Village in Telluride.

Not a bad IPA - just not an excellent one. Aroma is faint pine and floral. Taste is complex, but the elements donít play well with each other.
