COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We utilize two types of American hops in such a way that we put the flavor of these hops center stage and let their bitterness fade into the background. The hop-forward character of this Pale Ale shines through in the unique, tropical fruit flavor of two American hop varieties. Enjoy this offering with a fresh approach to how a Pale Ale expresses its inner hoppiness.

355ml can from Systembolaget. Almost clear dark golden, medium size, white head, leaving good lacing. The aroma has earthy hops, autumn leaves, hay, wet basement. Watery mouthfeel, medium carbonated. The taste is a bit weak, grassy, with caramel and bread. Finish with mild bitterness.

Not good. Crazy Mountain Brewery makes below average beers at best. With all the great breweries in Colorado how are they in business? Glad I got this on the cheap because it is poor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. These are the type of pale ales I like. It didn’t have the "slap you in the face" extreme bitterness that some people seem to enjoy. Light clear amber with a medium size head. Aroma is a malty, slight caramel smell with hints of floral hops. Taste was slightly sweet up front with a well balanced finish.

Poured from can into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a clear amber color with a one finger head of just off white foam. The head has a moderate level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a lighter level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a malty and bready smell mixed with some rather strong aromas of caramel and a little bit of a floral hop. Along with these smells comes some other rather light aromas of a little bit of grass and hay. Taste – The taste begins just as the nose would have suggested; big and malty with a strong bready taste mixed with a moderately strong showing of caramel. Right from the start there is also a lighter level of a grassy and earthy hop taste as well creating a base taste for the brew. As the taste advances, more hop flavors of a pine and earthy nature come to the tongue, bringing a bit more dankness to the brew. This dankness however is overshadowed by even more caramel sweetness, which in the end leaves on with a malty, sweet, and lightly dank hopped taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather thick and creamy with a carbonation level that is rather low. A little thinner of a body and a slightly higher carbonation may have been slightly better for the style, making for an easier drinking pale ale overall. Overall – Ah… It was OK, but a little to malty and sweet with not enough hop balance for me. If you like maltier and sweeter brews this is pretty nice in profile, but if looking for a crisper hoppier pale, then you may want to pass on this.

hayduke (3779) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 19, 2015
Can courtesy of Jack Nash of Eureka,CA Pours a copper color with a white head. Good lacing. Nose of flora; and citrus hops Medium body and smooth mouth feel. The flavor shows s bit of fruit, but mostly it is the fl\oral and citrus hops that dominate though the caramel malts in the backbone are fine. Finishes with some bitterness about right for an APA. Good beer..

12 oz can. Courtesy of olio. Tack så mycket! Cloudy deep golden color with a small white head. Berries, yeast, tea and mild hops in the aroma. The flavor is sourness, yeast and berries... Yikes! This is bad or gone bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
