3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(cask/ Man IPA) Dull amber-orange, slight haze; yellowish, quite reasonable head. Flowery nose, hoppy, bread dough. Spice-flavoured bread, notes of ginger, plenty of (British) hops, orangezest, nearly tart. Medium bodied, long peppery aftertaste. A relief from the other super-dull B&B beers tasted.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cash at the Falling Rock, Denver, GABF 2003. Slightly cloudy amber appearance. Roasty wood, vanilla, and nutty hop aroma. Nutty, roasted wood. Good overall spectrum of flavor, robust, and subtly woodish. Nice, but not a typical US IPA. Lacking just a little bit in the body.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2004 GABF 2003 (as Man Beer): The guys and girls from this brewery, wear orange jumpsuits to the GABF and run around making a lot of noise. Somewhere between amber and orange with a small head. Deep earthy, grassy aroma. Full bodied and bitter all the time including its long aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask Conditioned. The beer is a hazy copper color, with a large frothy head that is slow to go away. The aroma has a hint of wood in it but smelled primarialy of caramel, and there is also a nutty smell this could have been caused by the cask though. THe initial taste is slightly sweet, and bitter, then it becomes hoppy. The finish is sweet but still bitter. overall it's a good beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fort Collins Brew Fest 2003: The aroma and flavor were dominated by hops. My guess would be Cascade hops. Definite grapefruit/citrus notes.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2003 Warm, smooth and creamy malt flavors swarmed my palate. Sweet, bitter and perfumey hops up front; slowly built into a healthy bitterness. Somewhat crisp in the finish. Sweet/malt/hop combo is nice. Very drinkable and very tasty. CASK: All the great things as above, but with cask qualities, of course (soft carbonation, creamy, yeasty). Notes of licorice. Good stuff!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2004 Draught. Body is light amber. Aroma is
lightly malty (cookie), lightly hoppy (grapefruit, flowers), with a note
of diacetyl. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly
bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, velvety/creamy texture, lively carbonation. Doesn't do much
for me; light uninteresting aroma and citric flavor. Nice mouthfeel
