emeinz (220) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Can to tulip. Aroma is heavy on citrusy grapefruit and pine. There is also a slight floral aroma. The pour is a very beautiful amber orange with a moderate off white head. Medium body with long bitter finish. Like the tagline says, this is definitely bold. I think its worthy of flagship status. One of my favorites when I go to CO.

Strykzone (4897) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Clear and coppery. A decent white head. Nice lacing. Light hops and caramel in both the aroma and the flavor. Nice and straight forward.

jonno (2287) - JAPAN - NOV 25, 2011
Very Colorado. Bigger beefier body than the West Coast. Quite chewy with the big hops on top. Probably not enough balance for me, but I could see east coast IPA lovers digging this. Very workmanlike, but certainly no slouch in any particular area.

jtclockwork (8170) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Can shared by Jcwattsrugger. Pours dark brown with off white head. Nose of tree sap, caramel malt, resin and chocolate. Taste is dry caramel sap, tree bark sap, syrupy sap, birch sap and maple sap. Did I mention its sappy? Decent. Lots of dry resin and sap in finish. Medium body.

PorterPounder (5446) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Superior, Co. - Superior Liquor - 12 oz can. Very dark copper pour, thin but sticky khaki colored head. Aroma has some very faint spruce notes, a hint of cinnamon. Rich, bold flavor with some Juicy Fruit gum sweetness, a hint of grapefruit bitterness, some malty toffee-like notes. Mouthfeel is nice and thick, Interesting little IPA.

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 12, 2011
On tap at Freshcraft. Poured a slightly hazy light amber with a dense foamy head and good lacing. Smells of toffee and a lot of spiced tea in the nose. Taste is mostly made up of tea and earth flavors with a heavy bitterness. There is a little grapefruit citrus, but not much, and a bit of metallic in the finish, before ending with a nice lingering bitterness. Smooth and crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

dnstone (2137) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Strange, earthy malt aroma. Amber-copper and off-white head. Earthy-malty light hop (for an IPA). A bit too earthy for my taste.

12oz can 9/19/11 (Courtesy of RSRIZZO)-46° in Shaker-Pours a medium amber with a small off white head. Aroma of hops, malt, and caramel. Taste of hops, caramel, malt, and chocolate. This medium to full bodied brew is a bit maltier than most other IPA’s but still pretty tasty.
