This pours a clear amber gold with a 1 finger but quickly disappearing head of foam. Lacing is on the sparce side.
The smell is of citrus hops and a big caramel malt nose. Smells really balanced.
The taste is just like the nose; very tasty citrus hop bitternes tempered by a more than ample malt sweetness and voila....a very nice balance is achieved and appreciated.
Mouthfeel is very much on the thin side, carbonation is light, and it finishes bitterish and dry.
Bottom line: This is a very tasty, quite drinkable, and very nicely balanced IPA that would be even better were it not for the mouthfeel and despite that, I would seek out again. Well done, Grand Lake. ajnepple (7342) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - APR 22, 2015
On tap at the Arvada location. Orange and clear appearance with a quickly dissipating head. Notes of citrus fruits, floral hops, rich malts and pine. Mild to moderate bitterness balanced by a light sweetness. Soft carbonation and pretty clean overall. Decent. jrodooo5 (1748) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - MAY 19, 2014
An ok run of the mill IPA. Kind of a watery pour w/ a foamy white head. Aroma has a subtle hop presence. Taste is fairly bitter w/ a smooth finish. Drinkable but forgettable! zoucrew102 (2236) - - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle. Citrus aroma with notes of pine resins and a touch of hops. Pours light golden colored with a thin white head and very little lacing. Smooth to start out with all malt flavors and not much else. Finishes dry with a hint of grapefruit fruitiness and hops. Pine resiny flavors stick to the palate after. Atypical IPA but fairly enjoyable. kaser (6430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Orange pour from bottle in copper mountain. Hopppy and bitter. Dank aroma. Rotten grapefruit and orange flavor. Not bad.

This is a pretty basic IPA. Lots of pine and a bit of citrus. the malts are understated. Sledutah (7976) - Utah, USA - JUL 23, 2013
12oz bottle picked up at Total Beverage Da314man (17) - LONGMONT, Colorado, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Pours cloudy orange with a small white head, light spotty lacing. Aroma of dusty caramel and pine. Flavors of sweet dusty caramel, earthy and pine
Too malty and sweet for me, bitter pine.
7% and 99 IBU’s makes this beer a hop lover’s dream! Nice and cloudy pour with a great aroma. Only thing that would make this beer better is if it were more accessible. Don’t see it often enough in my local area (Boulder/Longmont) but when I do a 6 pack comes home with me! puzzl (3264) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Tap at Grand Lake. Thoroughly underwhelming. Light pine, lots of caramel in the nose. Sweet body, sticky biscuit (ewwww), sap. Blech. That1Guy (2240) - Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2012
12 oz bottle pours amber with a bit of a white head. Citrus and pine on the aroma, but not very strong, with some cardboard. Flavor is the same. A bit undercarbed and slightly oxidized.
