Bill Becker (908) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - FEB 10, 2017
A: Slightly hazy orange gold. Plenty of foam, and tilting my glass from side to side, plenty of lacing. S: Pine and very flowery hops in the smell. Mostly pine, which I dig. T: Pine again but with a mildly aggressive grainy malt character that adds a real plus to this IPA. Theres a subtle sweetness that I get within the flavourful profile that I cant identify. Helps. M: Medium bodied until the finish where it thins out some. O: I reckon my palate likes this muchly. Who am I to argue?

Can. Hazy dark yellow with a white head. Nice hop aroma. tropical fruit, pine, juicy malts. The flavor isnt as impressive as the aroma, but gives a good solid firm bitterness over a solid malt base. Long bitter finish.

Can from the source. Crushable IPA, a bit lighter mouthfeel and hop delivery but certainly the style. This beer was on tap everywhere, where is the meat?

Draught and cans since debut, most recently at Anchovies, Winter 2015.
Moderate amount of white head tops a bright, light-amber body with soft auburn-bronze hues and good clarity. Retention is moderately-strong.
Very fruity in the nose; cherry, strawberry, apple, lemon and with a touch of stronger, more austere pine, but not to the point of it being resinous. Light pepper is noted, along with a lightly sweet honey-like maltiness and touches of biscuit. No alcohol or flaw and the simcoe and amarillo definitely add more to it so that its not just another C-hop bomb.
Lightly to moderately malty with strong attenuation, but still a fair amount of malt sugar remaining, being needed to balance all of these high alpha hops. Black pepper, cherry, melon, orange and ruby red grapefruit all combine nicely with the base malts to produce a fairly juicy-sweet fruitiness. Spicy, lightly resinous pine lingers on the edges and theres certainly plenty of bitterness to go around. Moderate carbonation helps disperse some of the acidity, however and it ends crisp enough, though with some light specialty grain character butting in. No alcohol or flaw. A good rendition of a West Coast IPA but with more malt character than those usually have.
