Great beer. I was pleasantly surprised with the flavor but figured hey it has a cool name, it must be able to back it up.

Sweet floral hoppy notes on the nose. hazy amber pour with lots of off white head. Smooth flavor of hops with a slight sweet finish on the palate. delicious.

This is one of the most interesting beers I have ever tasted, it is hard to put it into a category. If I had to put it into just one I would make a new one and say a slightly hoppy amber ale or a pale amber ale. This is a truly thrist quinching beer, great on a hot summer day. Plus who can argue with the slogan get hazed, Priceless. Cheers,

Very strong American hop flavor and aroma. Plenty of floral character. A bit hazy, but I guess that’s intentional. Medium white foam with good retention.

i’m telling you: at one time, this was a five star beer. despite what dan at boulder beer says, something has changed. something has backed up and relented. maybe the price of hops? maybe the shortage of necessities? whatever the case - something has changed. but that something is not my allegiance to this brewery or this particular ale. i love boulder beer. i love hazed and infused. were i awaiting the electric chair and i had only five beers to drink before my death, i would choose a hazed. i mean, really, people, it’s just that good. (okay, that was melodramatic, but still). melted penny copper color imbues a full dry-hop aroma. i smell slightly familiar flavor. i taste jason scott’s kansas city living room and rob zombie’s filmography. i taste herb harjes’ denver camaraderie and cara harjes’ great stories. i tasted that christmas eve when the wife and i watched ALL the ROCKY films, and i woke up on christmas day with a splitting headache. yes: this is my ale. i see it is the color, smell it in the aroma, taste it in the changed flavor, miss it when i am away from distribution. i could say more about the technicalities, but this is not a technical beer for me: it’s autobiographical. and i hope more people will subscribe to its story.

lucent copper, thick foamy white head, high effervescence, med-body, med-co2, thick lace.

aroma: fresh juicy hops, sweet white wine.

taste:
T1= hop juice, pale malt.
T2= smooth, mild, slightly fruity, slightly malty.
T3= sweet hop bread, lingering hop fruitiness.

rich, smooth, and clean all the way through.
hops are fresh and juicy; not bitter, resinous, or citrus.
very drinkable.

This is my new favorite pale ale. For me its just goes down better than my old fav, Alpha King. The fruitiness is not overpowering, and the beer is not overly carbonated, just enough.

This one has become my everyday beer. Medium flavor and acidity. You can easily taste lime. Consistently good quality.
