3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours out a orange/amber topped with awhite head. Aroma was of citrus, pine, and some sweetness. Taste was more of the nice hop mix along with some caramel malt notes.
On Tap at the Brewpub (the oaked version on the "beer engine")
Served on a tulip, deep orange amber with a dense lasting off-white head and heavy lacing coating the glass. Nice mostly piney hop aroma, The warmer temp and the oak, makes for a mellow, soft warm flavor. Significant vanilla and soft woody notes. The oak doesn’t come through like a tree branch, more like a soft blanket of woodiness that just calms everything down. Carbonation is a bit soft, of course that lends to the effect. Interesting.

Tap at the brewpub-pours light orange with a small white head and some lacing. looks very nice! nose is dank pine, pine and more pine!!!!!! like a fresh cut pine forest, almost evergreen ish hop character. flavors are very piney and resinous with lingering minty quality. very solid and this is my type of ipa-straight forward and bitter. the typical flagship ipa however, in a very good way!

Draft at the brewpub. An amber beer with a big sudsy head. There’s a nice floral aroma, and this drinks with a nice pine-laden hoppiness and a solid malt backbone. Rock solid American IPA. (#4678, 7/7/2012) Sledutah (7979) - Utah, USA - JUN 10, 2012

Cloudy golden with a white head. Citrus and grapefruit makes for a very nice and easy drinking IPA. Clean
Draft. Murky orange yellow color. Aroma of orange and tropical fruit. Taste is very bitter fruit. Nice. laymansbeerfan (33) - Rosemount, Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2012
Served in a Boulevard tulip from a 22oz bottle; my first attempt at a review.
A: This is an amber color beer, with only a little white head sticking around.
S: I get a sweeter smell from the malt portion, and some citrus and floral notes from the hops.
T: There is a really nice hop presence here and it has a pretty bitter follow through. The sweeter malt is present for me at first and then the hops take over... a nice blend.
MF: Nice carbonation in this one, as well as a dry finish.
O: This was a nice IPA from the Mountain region! The flavors worked pretty well for me to give a good hop presence while also maintaining some malt identity too. This one doesn’t show the alcohol off in the taste, so it makes it seem like it’s not really there so much. I could see myself drinking this fairly regularly if it were available to me all the time.

Orange-amber with good white head. Modest nose of citrus, pine, and bubblegum. Good carbonation with somewhat thin body. Not a detractor for me, though. Sweetness is outdone by big piney/resinous hop character. Pretty good. NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2011
Draft at GABF. Pours a good looking deep gold with a sticky head. Nose is fresh and popping with citrus and some resiny simcoe. Faint malt in the background. Clean overall. On tasting, the hop notes are really nice. Not overly astringent or drying, just fresh and clean. Malt profile is robust enough to support the hops. Solid. 3fourths (9367) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 21, 2010
draft. lightly hazed copper. fresh and vibrant simcoe/cascade hop nose, PtE-like in both fresh juiciness and softness. clean and snappy up front; juicy cirtus across the back; medium to heavy bitterness. almost spot on for the kind of IPA I dig, if it weren’t for the green celery juice flavor I get (heavier in the finish). medium+ body, good crispness across mid-palate. tasty.
