3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
From notes. Nitro tap at Hangar. Pretty solid offering from Boulder. Maybe I’m just not used to the nitro, but it seemed really thin on the palate. Light floral hops and some cereal grains. Very drinkable, but not really that special.

On nitrogen at Jerry’s. Amber-gold with creamy white head / Faint nose of sour malt and dry hops / Medium body, creamy, toasty and dry with low fruit, good balance and bitter finish / Flavors of toast and dry hops, with notes of brown sugar and citrus / Distinctly lacking much in the way of fruit, but still a nice balanced, easy drinker.

Can. Clear rich orange pour with a clingy white head. Big floral hop aroma. Some citrus in here as well. Good hop bite but very well balanced. I think this one is underrated. Good stuff.
