3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Translucent copper with a foamy beige head. Full body with medium-high carbonation.
Aroma: sticky citrusy hop resins, sweet bready pale and crystal malts, and a complex yeasty character.
Taste: stoney minerality, husky toasted malt tanins, piney hop bitterness, medium/dark crystal malt, yeast bite.
Body fullness and flavor intensity are certainly beyond that of a pale ale.

Originally reviewed: 10/13/10. Another great bottle received from CrellMoset recently (BA). Thanks! Iím really enjoying this brewery.
12oz bottle poured into a conical pint. Dark amber/orange hues capped off by a small creamy beige head. Fair retention; lots of sticky lace left in the wake. Iím getting a sharp smack of pine in the nose right away. Nice! Either Iím getting used to it, or it fades nicely into an earthy floral scent. I like the smell of this one.
The body is par for the style. Moderate carbonation. Not too light, but not overly filling. Good beer for lunch. This is definitely on the more bitter side of APAs. IBUs clock in at 60. I think the hops are blended very well with a touch of sweet caramel malts. Balance leans ever-so-slightly in the bitter hops favor, but thatís not a bad thing. I like the bitter side of this beer. Well done, Blue Mountain! And thanks again, Chris!

Always fresh (at least when I get it, always on tap somewhere within an hour of the brewery). Pours a light amber, feels crisp on the palate with a slight citrus back.

From the tap poured an amber color with a fair amount of head. Nice light hoppy flavor with a quick finish.
