n the 1960s, before Vail Village was paved and closed to vehicles, "hookiebobbing" referred to those committed fools who, while on skis, grabbed onto the bumper of passing cars to tow them up to the lifts. Our IPA is a Colorado approach to the American take of an English classic. Three aggressive yet floral American hops and one hop from Down Under team together to make a bright, citrusy and floral India Pale Ale. A deep caramel malt helps to balance the bitterness of the hops and lets the complex hop bill shine.
Hopped with Simcoe, Amarillo, Centennial and Galaxy.

George999 (452) - Colorado, USA - DEC 27, 2016
Can- pour is hazy and blond. The head is off white and highly carbonated and thick. The aroma is Floral, malty, and earthy hops. The taste is earthy hops, a little herbal notes, reminiscent of weed. There are also citrus notes and the finish is malts. There is a lingering bitterness that is present long after the beer is finished. Overall this is a good balanced IPA not too hoppy a good hop presence.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2016 Can, 12oz, Booths. Nice looking cover art. Pours quite murky gold with frothy white head. Aroma isnt massive but quite pleasant - reminiscent of sweet pink grapefruit. Taste is well rounded bright pink grapefruit with a pronounced malty sweetness. Maybe too sweet for some but i found this very easy to drink. Not the most complex or juicy IPA out there. It is sweet which masks the hop bitterness but Im not convinced about the claimed 87IBUs though

Bottle: Hazy yellow-amber with a tall, very tightly foamed white head. Orange, orange-peel, dusty grain aroma. Taste is soft and creamy orange malt, caramel malt. A nice combo of candied sweetness and dry, citrus-peel bitter. Very enjoyable.

Tkete gulbrun med hyt offwhite skum. Lukter ananas, sitrus, korn og alkohol. Massiv bitterhet fra starten, som overdver det meste av sdme. Noe ananas og sitrussdme kommer gjennom, men minimalt. Lang.
