Drunk from a can. Looks to be a golden color. Not much aroma. Pretty smooth to drink.

Really well balanced. They nailed that with this beer. The aroma isnít very heavy of hops or malt itís just kind of soft and muted. The taste is really nice though. Lots of juicy fruit and a slap of bitterness. Nothing that is going to scorch your palate. Itís just a really pleasant hoppy bitterness with those awesome tropical fruits and malt balance. Nothing bad to say about this IPA, itís excellent.

scooterbub (874) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Pours a hazy darker brown with a one inch tan head that lasts. Taste is of raisin, malt, caramel, hops, pine, resin and citrus. Similar aroma. Has a full body with a bitter and dry finish. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable. Never realized it had a higher abv.

Gription79 (2312) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Poured from a can, thanks to Ed. There is a definite husky, metallic, astringency to this beer that dominates the flavor. The Hop aroma is nice and citrusy. Sweet maltiness, but not overly so. I am thinking the astringency balanced the malty sweetness.

haddon90 (1493) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Can. Pours a clear, amber color with a nice white head. Strong, hoppy aroma with a hint of citrus and grapefruit. Smooth, floral notes. Nice citrus presence with some hops in the flavor. Hard to tell how strong it is. Really good IPA.

Danyel (1089) - Colorado, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Can. Pours orange with deep red hues and off-white head. Aroma is a bit dirty, piney, very malt forward- caramel. Taste is bitter but not very complex. Decent but really very basic, a good for an introductory IPA.

Appearance: opaque brown color, off white two inch head, very nice head on beer - a really appetizing looking beer Aroma: citrus, hops, earthy, grassy Palette: citrusy, hoppy, punch of flavor at the end, can taste how it is a higher alcohol beer Taste: very bitter at the end, medium body Overall: this is a pretty good beer if you like bitter and alcohol flavor ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Herbal/floral, citrus/peachy fruity hops aroma. Tangerine/grapefruit and floral hop flavor. Light malt flavor: Bread crust, caramel, sweet. Substantial bittier aftertaste. Not super hoppy--but good.

Block (1520) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Another mild beer from Upslope. It appears that the specialize in producing beers with a slightly higher amount of alcohol and they cover it up using a variety of different ingredients. The dominant ingredient takes the beer name. Alcohol covered with hops. Not too much hops though.
