Dedicated to the Cottonwood, Juniper, and Ponderosa pines of Colorado, the India Pale Ale is a step up from the Pale, more bitter and more bold. We use all Chinook hops in a nod to our love of pine trees, giving our IPA a fundamental piney-floral kick, with hints of caramel and toastiness. Preferred for planning weekend excursions to the rockies.

On tap at brewery last April 12th. Pours brown with minimal head. Aroma of mild hops and tropical fruit. Mild carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of tobacco, dark malts, malt balls, cactus fruit, weird fruit. Overall really funky with fruit rind tastes...different and not necessarily yummy!

Taster at Brewers Rendezvous. Pours a thin, white head, over a slightly hazy, dark amber (SRM 15) body.....nose is sweet, with light hints of fruits from the malts, pine, resin from the hops....taste is toffee/caramel from the malts, moderate pine, citrus, dusty from the hops......mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, alcohol hidden, carbonation makes a clean finish. This is a nicely balanced beer, which meets the style. BJCP 7/3/13/4/7

onceblind (9162) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Hazy amber bronze with a nice smooth nose of floral and herbal hops, British toffee, a touch of lavendar honey, and something else I can only describe as my kitchen in Oxford...I know that only means something to me, but whatever. Smooth and balanced flavor with grassy and herbal hops, toffee, and a weird funky sweet-earthy-hoppiness...much like the aroma aspect that reminded me of my kitchen in Oxford. Pure sentiment. And I loved it.

arminjewell (9575) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Pour on tap at the brewery, dark yellow-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of jam, sweet caramel, toffee, slight earth, grass, cooked veggie and slight floral hops. Taste is a mix of earth, grass, veggie and caramel, some butter as well, with a touch of floral hops. No thanks.

Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Pour is deep, hazy amber, with a small white head. Same weird aroma as the pale ale; husky, caramel corn, wet dog, diactyl, and dirt. Taste is again better than the aroma, slightly roasty, earthy, floral hops, and grass, but still overshadowed by the cooked veggies. Medium body with high carbonation. Better than the pale, but still needs a lot of work.
