Poured from can into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a medium golden color with a huge head of white billowy foam. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave some foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is lower on the malt smells and heavier on the hop. The lighter malt smells are of a light bready smell mixed with just a little bit of an orange aroma. The hop is rather big and bold with a big pine aroma being the heaviest, but having plenty of grapefruit and earthy hops mixed within. Overall the brew smells like it is on the drier side with a good hit of resinous hop.
Taste – The taste begins with a drier cracker like taste mixed with a lighter pine and grapefruit hop. The grapefruit gains a little bit of strength toward the middle, but maintains a lighter profile overall. The pine grows stronger and stronger as the flavor moves onto the end and is joined by some more herbal hop flavors along the way. Some earthy hops and a little bit of tangerine pop up at the end of the taste and mix with the drier cracker and other hop flavors, to leave a rather crisp and moderately resinous hop flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side. The moderateness of the carbonation and body is a nice balance for the crisp taste and easy drinkability, all while upholding all the hop flavors to a good extent.
Overall – A rather crisp and moderately resinous IPA that is rather easy to drink. A pleasant IPA overall.

Poured up on tap into a tumbler at Mackenzie River Pizzeria, Bozeman, where it has a clear gold body that supports a nearly white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up citrus and sweet malts that have a thin edge of gummy bear citrus candy. The taste delivers a tasty jumble of hop bitterness, hop flavor and some malty sweetness. The hops go from tangelo and grapefruit and pine to a sliver of mango and faint mint. This is nice and hoppy with a pleasing level of resiny hop bitterness.
