2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A canned version, it’s very cool looking. Speaking of looking, I don’t thin I find a date canned/best by date on it unless this is it: 2 08 09 etc..
It pours very nicely, a clearish deep gold with a 2 finger head of fluffy foam that is a slow shrinker. Good lacing ensues.
Taking a few whiffs, I get some floral hops that are nice but that seems to be all I get.
The taste is kind of bitter, bitter in not such a good way. Is there such a thing as burnt hops? Bitter gone wrong, imho. There’s no saving grace of a malt backbone or, at least, not much of one that I can attest to.
I’m not enjoying this very much and I have 5 more cans to deal with. There’s some slight notes of grapefruit that I can taste now but that isn’t going to save how I feel about this brew. This one is screaming for some balance and the screams go unheard.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at The Buffalo, Idaho Springs, CO. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head and loads of lace. The aroma is weak malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a rather strange and unusual liqourice bitter hop palate with a long lasting bitter finish. An easy drinking pale ale.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a dark straw color with a small white head.
Not a lot of nose to this one. A little bit of caramel with a hint of earthy hops.
Hops come out a bit more in the taste with a very piney presence. A little bit of caramel as well.
Mouthfeel is too light. Good carbonation.
Mediocre offering from a brewery that is never really bad, but not good either.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour from a 12oz can. Clear, medium gold brew with white head. Aroma of citrus and tart fruit, tropical fruit. Taste is dry, little malt at the start, hops forward with bittering appearing early, a little earth, tart fruit, and hints of resin in the middle positioning to a more fruity / citrus finish. A solid APA.
