Can at home. Bronze pour, good creamy head, nice retention and lacing. Resin, citrus, light caramel. Moderately sweet, hints at some tropical notes, ends with a cool candied orange thing, assertive bitterness. Medium+ body, oily texture. Overall: Really impressive classic IPA (with an extra citrus twist).

wchesser (1774) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 22, 2016
Yellow gold. Nose is garlic and onion hops. Taste is biscuity malts and garlic hops. This is a well crafted IPA, but not my thing.

Beaver (1588) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 7, 2016
12 oz can. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a big meringue white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet bready malt, soft fruit and lots of piney resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet fruity caramel malt with lots of resiny dank piney hops. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a very nice IPA.

On tap at hops and pie, pours hazy golden copper with medium white head that sticks around. Aromas and flavor are aggressive hops, cinnamon stick, grain, and other spicy florals. The cinnamon thing was weird...wondering if she was a bit old. Light to medium body with boozy end
