3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is a bright citrus hop scent. Color is an orange/brown with good carbonation and a thin tight head. It starts with a medium body that goes down with a crisp feel. Finish comes in with a little citrus taste, a very light malt flavor then a hay or alfalfa like hop flavor and ends with a bold bitterness. Overall it has some interesting flavor and is evenly complex.

Pour is a cloudy but bright orange. Aroma is mildly hoppy with not much in the way of malts showing up. Flavor is again lots of hops with not a big malt presence. This is basicially just a big hop soda. Still if you love hops this would be ok in a pinch.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewpub. A hazy amber beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is lovely grassy hoppy which also lends it notes of pine needles and citrus. The flavor is sweet and very hoppy which primarily gives it notes of grass and pine needles, leading to a dry and very bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear burnt amber coloring with some golden highlights. Bubbly foam ring recedes around the rim. Pine and orange citrus with a powerful caramel maltiness. Light and floral on the palate, with some toasted caramel and honey. Toasted bread crumbs in the finish. A decent everyday drinking IPA

12oz bottle, courtesy of acrdz. Thanks, Mike! Pours a clear, bright honey-orange color; white head with solid, fine-bubbled lacing. Some butter, butterscotch, and a mild generic hoppiness in the aroma; a fair amount of sweetness and sugar. Medium mouthfeel: sticky candy sugar, honey, and butter, with a basic citrus hoppiness, though not much; bland, cereal-laden and lightly hopped (and, again, buttery) IPA. Medium finish: basic malty sweetness, candy sugar, and a touch of mineral bitterness.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice looking beer...cloudy amber wtih tiny head. The good stuff stops there though. Odd, almost rank hoppy aroma. Flavor is balanced, but the malts and hops donít work together. Palate is medium, but finishes really watery. Overall a disappointing beer.

This is a really really weak IPA, I was surprised to find such a thin IPA in Northern Colorado - very disappointing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Resin citrus nose, with some rosemary. Hazy deep orange color, medium head that didnít last too long. Intense attack, tons of malt and hops, nice balance. Medium bodied, tons going on with this beer, but it finishes quick and clean? Solid IPA, straight forward and well put together.
