3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at airport location. Orange gold with a lasting quarter-inch of creamy foam. Faint nose of caramel, florals and citrus. Faint taste of all that plus some toast. Near-medium body is tingly with medium carbonation and well-balanced. Tasted good with some spicy food, but didn’t stand up too well on its own.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the Airport. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet floral hops and biscuit. The flavor reveals more infection; sweet butter, light floral hops. I guess they don’t care at all about quality control.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ Chophouse, DEN Airport: Amber clear color with a light head and average lacing. The nose has a nice light hop note (simcoe?) with some pine and subtle grapefruit, some other citrus fruit and distant lotiony note. Malty body and a clean mouthfeel. Not quite as dry hopped as I’d like on a pale ale but it comes across fairly tasty.
