Redish amber in color with an ample frothy head. Aroma is lightly hop and floral fresh. Flavor is moderately bitter. A very good pale ale.

Bottled. Didn't like this one that much. The hop bite was off somehow. Came off as a little to bitter.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
boaring week noze. bronze color, weak head. continuous hop bite from the beggining of each sip, yet restrained and not very bitter. too much typical Montana ruggedness, not enough refienment

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A shade of dark amber with big froth which I always like, the aroma is fragrant and fruity, another nice touch. Very smooth with a taste of honey roasted malts and a nice balance between the hops. A nice touch of sweet honey throughout that goes from sweet to bitter. I really liked this one a nice change of pace.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale golden out of the bottle with a thin white head. Some hop characterists over a thin body. Some grainy harshness, but good enough with pizza.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good Pale Ale. Malty aroma. Good balance between the malts and the hops. The English hops kind of caught of guard.

this one pretty much disgusted me, it was like drinking a bottle of perfume that looks like budweiser, whatever award this beer won they must’ve bribed the judges
