COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This time of year in the Rockies, one day can span all four seasons. Morning snow gives way to afternoon sun, sending fresh snowmelt into our rivers and into our mash tun. With a complex malt backbone dry hopped for notes of citrus and pine, its almost as surprising as the season itself.

bhensonb (14495) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Bottle from Liz. Pours dark copper/amber with a yellow/beige head. Aroma is pine over a roasty malt. Body is maybe medium. Flavor is pine/citrus. Roasty malt backbone. Dusty, red malt sort of thing. Not quite grabbing me, but not bad.

seymour (1929) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Tasted on draft at 2015 St. Louis Microfest in a willi becher glass. It poured a crystal clear reddish amber colour with sudsy beige foam. A good example of American IPA: strong malt backbone plus strong grapefruity/resiny hops. Caramelly and juicy. Smooth and creamy. Light-medium body, strong carbonation, lingering bittersweet aftertaste. Very tasty and refreshing.

lownote (556) - Austin, Alabama, USA - MAY 10, 2015
Light spicy aroma. Pours a but if a clear red with some head that lingers. Taste is surprisingly gentle. Just a bit of of spiciness, lots of maltiness and some hops at the backend. They linger a bit. Pretty thick body and sharp carb

bookaboom (1) - - APR 19, 2015 does not count
Meh. Color is good, taste a little bland. Not very hoppy for an IPA, the "red" must dillute it a little.

Koskela (505) - Marysville, California, USA - APR 18, 2015
A very hoppy citrusy and sweet aroma come from this slightly hazy soft red brew with beige foam forming around the sides of the glass. The taste is bitter up front with a sweet malty counter then a smooth medium bodied finish and a pleasant bitter aftertaste. A good brew.

Oscbert (1263) - Lincoln, California, USA - APR 16, 2015
Malty aroma of biscuity and light caramel pleasant light citrusy hop Pours a clear burnt sienna color with small off white head that lasts Sweet flavor of berry, caramel and bread. A bit cloying. Earthy piney hop Medium bodied with medium co2, earthy bitter finish I can only drink one of these. Much too sweet for me and the hop character doesn't do much for me ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
