Doug Hyndmans latest and greatest hoppy war hammer of an IPA. Five types of hops, five pounds in the dry hop - theres a theme here. Chinook, CTZ, Centennial, Galena and Amarillo join forces, devastating your palate with their bitter deliciousness. Pungent. Clean. Unforgiving. Wonderful!

3fourths (9204) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2013
can. lightly hazed amber honey body with a medium-sized white head. caramel goop malt nose with buttery, musty grasses, moldy citrus fruits and band aids. ugh. basically smells like wort stew: sweet, sludgy amber malt syrup, stinky. add to that a goopy, sludgy, sourish-sweet malt syrup flavor... and vegetable-like bitter hops muddled by a sweaty yeast flavor... accompanied by a pasty texture... god, this is terrible. this is first-batch un-trained homebrewer stuff.

Can - pours a mostly clear golden yellow with a tinge of orange and a med soapy off white head. Mostly citrus aroma with orange zest, grapefruit and mild malty sweetness. Lighter body than I expected makes it somewhat thin. Bitter without a substantial hop bouquet. Minimal malt contribution. Meh

12 oz. can. 6.5% ABV per the label. Pours a thick, well retained off white head, with light lacing, over a mildly hazy light amber (SRM 7) body.......nose is heavy hops, with grapefruit, light pine, mild toasted malts with light biscuit, balance to the hops.......taste is lightly sweet with floral honey notes, mild cereal from the malts, pine, grapefruit, tangerine tones from the hops, finishing with heavy, lingering bitterness, balance to the hops......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation with mild acid. This is a very hop dominated beer in aroma, flavor and big bitterness. The malt backbone is minimally present as is frequently found in newer style IPAs. The result is a rather too simple a beer. A rework of the malts, with more caramel/crystal notes, would improve both the malt contribution and the body which is much too light for the style. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

Can in Denver on a recent trip to Colorado. Nothing to really write home about. Drinkable, but ok.

Cwrw42 (51) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2016 Can sample. Hard to fully evaluate but a good middle of the road IPA. Quite drinkable and one that I would come back to.

Doesn't smell hoppy but very pleasant with notes of brown sugar and caramel. Sweet taste up front followed by shop bite that grows long after the sip. Overall a very nice beer but there's no way it's 100+ IBU. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

islay (2324) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2015
12 oz. can, consumed on 12-23-15. Aroma initially seems pleasant and fresh, but not for long. Citric, hoppy, milky aroma features a tomato scent. Smells like milk slightly past its prime. Pours a clear, effervescent, copper/bronze with a small amount of beige head. Nice color. Produces decent lacing. American IPA hoppiness in the taste. Flavors of grapefruit and light pine. Pleasant but not memorable. A touch of spice in the finish. Smooth and oily in the palate. Medium body. Really pleasant palate effects. Overall, far from special, but it is likable. Approximately average IPA, but that makes it an above average craft beer.

Really enjoyed this. Great citrus and floral hop aroma. Nice light copper color with some foam. Average weight and feel. Flavors were harsh and strong bitterness with a honey sweetness underneath.

Can from Whole Foods Wine and Liquor in Boulder, 11/26/15. Pours a hazy orange color with a thin head and light lace. Fairly resiny hop aroma. Pine as well. The malts are more subtle, and kind of biscuit and toast in nature. Clean and easy drinking. Medium bodied. Nice, dry close to it. Tasty IPA.
