Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2009
Bottle at Jonesy’s Eatbar in Denver. Pours clear amber-orange with a thin off-white head that diminishes quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Bready malt and hops aroma. Light to medium body with flavors of pine, hops and some yeast and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a hops aftertaste that does not linger long. Slightly above average overall.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 1, 2009
Bottled. Thin body. Deep clouded amber red, with ever thinning small off-white head. smells of floral notes and sweeter caramel maltiness. to malty and sweet of a flavor for an IPA. Tastes caramel and citrus but unpredictably light on bold hop flavor.

copper pour from a 12oz bottle, the last several reviewers describe it perfectly, miminal head, little lacing, hoppy aroma and malty body with a decent bitterness and medium cabronation. In other words, a good american pale ale.

Aroma: Citrus floral aroma with matly notes. Appearance: Deep copper (orange high lights), off white head, slight haze Flavor: Balanced towards the hop (bitterness), strong malt back bone with hop flavoring Mouth feel: Medium body, a tingling effervescence on the side of the tongue. Overall Impression: Refreshing and hoppy with strong malt support system.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2009 Pours sparkling amber with a moderate, white, pillowy head which leaves a very small layer and minimal lace. Nose is typical of poor APA’s with sweat, grass, faint cookie, and light citrus. Flavor is much of the same; sweat, wet grass, a little herbal, and faint pine with some sweet bread notes. Palate is lively, light to medium, and watery. Finishes quickly with wet grass and faint sweet breads. Bitterness is moderately light in this boring APA. Nothing too remarkable here.

DuffMan (7025) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2008
Bottle. Pours a very hazy orange-tinted amber with a moderate dense yellow-tinted head. Very pleasing aromas of fresh lychees and subtle spice. Lovely balance of sweet alt and fruity aromatic hops (lychee, melon) with a finish that s quite quenching and surprisingly low on bitterness. A real treat!

This along with the Laughing Lab was easily the best brew that I had on my visit to Colorado Springs several years back. A very light and smooth session beer with not a ton of flavor to it, but just enough to get the job done. Solid effort by these guys.
