3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured light amber clear with white head. Light hoppy aroma. Quite smooth sweet floral taste. Very pleasant.
From Mar 2007
ours from 12 oz bottle a clear gold with a medium sized head of foam that shrinks to a fine layer with some lacing.
The smell is just bursting with a hoppy nose and also some malt and spice.
The taste is delightful. Lots of citrus(lemon & grapefruit) but the bitterness is firmly under control due to a solid malt backbone. Nice balance. Dang. The hops are done *so* nicely in this brew making for one hell of a drinkable IPA and the finish has a nice bitter kick that I just don't want to end. I've had this before and I'm so pleased I picked up this bottle on my last trip to Ft Collins.
Bottom line: This is one of my favourite IPAs of all time. I couldn't recommend it more! boubalep (6) - - OCT 14, 2017 does not count
A very classic, but very good IPA. Golden color, clear. Nice smell but could be more pronounced. Classic flavor but prefect mix of aroma (in the pinus range) and bitterness (which lasts a bit too long). Draft, in their own bar.

Hoppy up front citrusy notes that kind of recede into a malty finish. Solid overall beer, don't like the malty notes at the end very much.

Enjoyed very much. Slightly too much bitterness on the finish for my wife, but she still enjoyed it. The flavor profile and drinkability were very good. WingmanWillis (407) - Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2017
Keg at the Keg Room. Pours clear gold with a decent white head. Aroma is piney good with some caramel and grain. Taste is an old skool IPA with the bitter hops supported by a solid caramel malty base that sweetened the finish. Pretty decent stuff.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2017 Overrated compared to other IPA. Should not be rated in the 90’s. You have to judge for yourself. Beer tasting is and always be a personal thing. Bule (2239) - California, USA - SEP 17, 2017
