3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy light amber, little bit dull. Very aromatic, grapefruit, and other citrus. Good nose. Lots of bitterness, not much chewy malt....pretty good balance. My type of pale ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Wynkoop’s IPA is a foggy orange in appearance with a foamy bright white head. The nose is sweet, with resinous hops and what seems like a rye-esque muskiness. It’s very full in the mouth, and thick in the belly, with what tastes like a somewhat high amount of unconverted sugars. It’s pretty bitter in the finish, with piney, plant-like oils in attack mode. The hop profile is full, and it completely coats the palate. That sums it up: a heavy palate and a strong bitter finish. It’s certainly not sessionable, and should be consumed with a strong belly.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft. Good-looking beer. Rich copper color, tiny bubbles. Little-to-no lacing though. Thin aroma. Taste is of some vague piney hops that quickly give way to roasty malts. Pretty middle-of-the-road, mainstream-meh-level IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap from brewery and from growler taken home.
Amber with big head and lace.
Aroma of straw hops and tropical melon rind.
Moderate carbonation and significant mouthfeel.
Flavors of mango fruit rind, straw hops, earth, roasty malts, old citrus, slight oak and cheese. Overall bold and flavorful for an IPA, a bit musty, funky and bitter, but worthy to take a growler home at $10.85 for a refill!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Wynkoop, served in plastic cup due to Rockies game. A standard IPA by no means a vibrant bouquet of hops, just your standard IPA that any run of the mill brewery can and should make. Ho Hum and Move Along
