12oz can. Filtered amber-copper body. Respectable off-white head. Not enticing oily pine aroma. Really has an antiquated feel to it. Caramel/specialty malts...piny earthy odd hop tones. Drinkable, but not that impressive for the style. Rich and malty.

Pours dark gold / light brown with an off-white head. Very light, sweet aroma. Hard to tell what it smells like. Very malty without much hop flavor. This isnt a bad beer but doesnt taste like an IPA to me. More like a brown ale or even a weak strong ale (does that make sense?).

Poured from can into a pint glass Appearance The beer pours a deep orange amber color with a one finger head of off white foam. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a decent sum of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell The aroma is heavy of a bready and a more earthy and pine hop smell. Along with these aromas comes a decent showing of a grapefruit citrus hop as well as some aromas of caramel and a little bit of sweeter citrus fruit, with just a touch of an onion smell rounding it all out. Taste The taste begins with a bready flavor mixed with a decent showing of a hop taste of a grapefruit nature. While grapefruit is the heaviest of the hop upfront, it fades as the taste moves forward, with it being replaced by other hop flavors of a pine and earthy hop. All while this occurs, the light caramel that was present upfront transitions to a more fruity like sweetness with some tangerine and a little bit of tropical fruit coming to the tongue. The sweet remains very light overall, and with the increase in the more dank hop flavors as well as a coming of some light onion and grassy hop tastes, one is left with a rather dankly hopped and malty taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel The body of the beer is average with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. For the dank hop tastes and lighter sweetness, the feel is pretty good as it really accentuates these tastes and allows for them to stand out in light of the more bready nature of the brew. Overall A fairly nice, more dankly hopped and sort of bready brew. Not my favorite, but one I would get again and one that is at least worth one try of.

12oz can from Liquor Max. Coppery orange pour with a bit of a white head. Nose has tangy pine, citrus and caramel. Taste is of sweet fruits, tangy pine, some caramelly malt and some chewy resin. Medium bodied. Slightly sticky. Finishes on the fruity sweet side of bittersweet. Solid-not-great IPA plucked out of that cooler of NoCO brewers I did not know -- should had taken the DIPA as it is very well rated. 13.8

I was in love with Dales Pale Ale and Goose Island IPA until I discovered Upslope! Love the taste my only problem with it is the high ABV. I love my beer and after three of these Im done for the night.

Neat mahogany reddish color, small white head. Honey, super light pine resin, floral notes. Decent amount of bitterness, some good sweetness. Very oily, medium body, some bit of carbonation. Quite acidic. Fine.

Solid IPA. Not earth-shattering but well made and packs enough punch to avoid generic. Granted I just drove for 14 hours and it's the first beer I'm drinking in my hotel room so I'm biased. Can in Fruita, CO. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wedgie9 (2513) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Tasted on 5/24/12 from a can. Pours crystal clear amber with an average off-white head that leaves thin lace. The nose is nicely balanced bread malt and floral citrus hops. The flavor is very nicely balanced floral and lightly bitter hops with light bread malt. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long balanced bitter hops finish.
