I thought this was a pretty good pale ale for a chain. Good balance and hop flavor not too much lingered in my mouth, hint of rye.

Tap @ Ram. Cloudy orange-brown pour with a short white head leaving minimal lace. Toast and grapefruit hop nose. Medium body with a solid, roasty-toasty malt body and resinous and lightly citrus hops which add a pleasant bitterness without much complexity. A solid APA and very sessionable.

Tasted on tap at the Fort Collins Horserooth location. Light pale, slightly hazy appearance. Slight hoppy aroma. For a pale ale, the malty character was pretty big. Not all that hoppy. Mediocre pale ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a slightly hazed orange beer w/ a nice big head. The aroma on this is a lovely orange citrus hop zing but the flavor is sort of earthy and bland. Medium bodied w/ medium carbonation. A good start but this doesn’t quite get there.

Sampled at the Indy brewpub. Cloudy gold with a nice white head. Nice lacing. Tart citrus flavor is quite bitter. Caramel has an oatmeal effect. Grapefruit rules here. Decent but nothing more.
