Sample at Falling Rock Tap House in Denver. The beer is a ruddy orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Hoppy aroma with sweet caramel malt notes. Medium, clean body with flavors of piney hops, caramel, malt and also a touch a spice. The finish is hops and pine with a lingering bitterness left over. A slightly off-kilter IPA overall, but not in a bad way. Not bad. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 5, 2010
On tap at the brewpub: Pours a transparent deep golden bronze with a well-lacing pillowy off-white head. Has a fairly fresh piny resiny hop nose with some light malty sweetness. Starts with good fullness for the style and a nice amount of sweet caramel and pale maltiness well-balanced with a healthy dose of piny flavoring and bittering hops. Finishes crisp and bittersweet. A pretty good hoppy, English-style IPA. SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 24, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours orange with a white head. The brewers claim that this is a Colorado IPA, for what that’s worth. Nonetheless it’s an excellent IPA. It has big flavors of orange and chocolate coupled with a nice quick bitter finish. You’ve gotta make a good IPA in this market, and that’s what they have done. nickd717 (4772) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Had a bunch of this at GABF as I was pouring for Bull & Bush. Pours a hazy amber color with a large, lacey yellowish/cream-colored head. The aroma is a nice complex English hop profile - floral, herbal, citrusy, and piney - with a little sweet caramel to back it up. Sweet caramel malt base on the flavor with a pleasant hop bitterness and flavor. Orange peel, herbal notes, pine needles, and resin. Medium-bodied with a nice airy lightness to it on the mouthfeel, and a good level of carbonation. A good and interesting English-style IPA overall, pretty on point. madmitch76 (25101) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2011

On tap at the brewpub. Hazy brown beer. Full on hops but not overwhelming and nicely balanced crisp malt.
growler. Pours a dark mahogany red color with nice sustaining off white head. Aroma of resiny, nectary, with big caramel, molasses malty notes as well. Medium to full bodied, quite creamy and a bit chewy. They describe it as an english IPA, and the flavor is definitely balanced, but there is a ton of hop presence, don’t be fooled. Low carbonation for the style, plenty of caramel and biscuit, a hint of toffee, and sweet, necary / resiny hops on the finish, with a lasting bitterness. Quite nice, very enjoyable.

Tap at brewpub, the pour is a dark brown, the smell is very hoppy, the taste is a very earthy hop and over the bitterness is just about right, really quite good, the description was an english IPA, so I wasnt expecting as much hop. But this was a pretty decent offering mnmike (1086) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 13, 2013
On tap at the brewpub - strong entry into the IPA category, aromas are subdued, slightly english style on this one. Mep3222 (1596) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Malty floral ish hop aroma. Taste is of slightly roasted malt and nicely balanced with hops, mix of floral and slight pine. Bitter finish. Not overly hoppy or malty. Well balanced and an enjoyable ipa.

Tap: mild for an American but just right if it’s an English IPA. Wonderful aroma of citrusy hops with a smooth finish. Nice.
