From a can, not bad. There is something unique about this taste from most IPAs but it would be way down my rankings of Colorado IPAs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can picked up at Wilburs in CO
Pours clear dark amber with a medium sized beige head and lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is malty, dusty, caramel, earthy and pine. Taste is sweet caramel up front with bitter pine in the finish
OK, sweet and bitter.

12oz can poured into glass. Nothing super exciting about this beer, but I’m always up for something new out of a can, especially since I can’t get these in FL.

Patagonia hops. I believe this is like Sierra Nevada’s Southern Hemisphere IPA, the use of regional hop, not a specific type of hops. Poured from a can, a beautiful red brown with a tan head with nice lacing. Pine aroma. The bitterness hits hard with a nice matching sweetness and a bit of alcohol. One of the bitterest IPAs I have tried. I think a barrel of this would definately make it from England to Austrialia on a sailing vessel.

On tap at the brewery. Teases with a hoppy aroma but no flavor at all. Very bland for an ipa.

December 30th, 2011 - Upslope’s India Pale Ale begins to reveal a pattern that was only an inkling earlier in the beer tasting process. It seems that, at least in late 2011, Upslope’s brewers a bit hops shy. Looking back on this review after two years in San Diego it seems like madness, but I’ve forgotten that the hops dial has a setting below 11. Upslope’s IPA is a little bit shy around bitterness, instead offering a sweet, sugary hops aroma, closer to a syrupy pine smell, but also a little watery and diluted too. The taste has a touch of dark maple sweetness, but is again somewhat attenuated, even watered down. And notable again is the complete retreat of hops. The flavor is overall mild, crisp and clear, but this makes it almost more like a lager than an IPA - a stylistic choice, I suppose, but I’d rather get some hops imprinted on my tongue than not. Without that resinous miracle, an IPA comes across a little bland.

Can, 061013. Amber with a large light tan head. Aroma has malt, caramel, floral hops, on the maltier side for being an IPA. Taste is medium sweet/bitter with sweet roasted mallt notes, pine bitter finish.

Can from arminjewell. Pours is a nice orange with tons of white head. Hops on the nose, but not a ton of them. Floral hops, malty, IPA? Sure.

The bitterness in this beer is a bit off. There are citrus and pine notes in the aroma, but the astringency at the end is distracting.
