On tap at blue monk. Pours hazy golden hue capped by a soapy white head. Nose of floral hops and light caramel. Taste features moderate bitterness, with decent flower hop flavor upfront that melts away to faint cracker and very light caramel. Moderate body, this was good.

Where and how: tap @ brewery
Aroma nice, fresh clean grassy hops , herbal backing. Neat nice hoppy feel.
Top: large cap, good lace with rings on glass.
Base: hazy gold.
Palate : medium bodied, soft consistency. Easy going with long friendly finish..
Taste: mellow but not bland. Very friendly set up of hops, little harshness. Solid textures that goes well as session bitter ale.
Other notes one of better brews from CBW

Growler fill from the brewery on Friday. This is their Frank pale ale wet-hopped with local Centennial hops. Poured a very murky golden yellow, not a ton of carbonation but very hazy. Did not have quite as much of the hop bite that Frank has, but the new hops added a certain measure of grass/earth notes, I thought. Slightly sweeter than regular Frank, but went down just as easy. A nice variation from Frank.
