2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a clear amber color with a medium thin off-white head that burns away steadily. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Lightly hoppy aroma with malty notes. Light to medium body with a subtle hops flavor accompanied by fruity malt. The finish is short and mildly hoppy with a bit of spice on the back end. Not a great effort overall.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
tap at Denver ChopHouse - Pours amber and smells of caramel malt and some light, fruity hops. It has a mild to moderately hopped flavor with some decently balanced malt sweetness providing a medium body. Itís a good though pretty run of the mill pale ale.

A nice orange amber ale with a thin white head. A light malt aroma with some British hops. In mouth, run of the mill ale with light smokey notes, no hops, boring. On tap at Denver Airport, August 28 2009

First rated at Denver airport location, re-rated at LoDo location.
Pours a thin, lifeless but nice amber color. Aroma is Riesling sweet grapefruit syrup. Flavor is off-rose grapefruit with a slight, bready malt finish. Oily mouthfeel. Not assertive. Flavors seem to wander around without any purpose.

POurs orange. Nose is some caramel malt and mild citrus hops. Flavor is a bland mixture of malt and pine. Easy to drink, but pretty shallow beer.

Maybe my nose sucks, or maybe rheir beers have no aroma... Copper colored, very little head off the tap. Flavor is all hops, not well balanced with the malts. Slightly bitter with mostly flavoring hops. Would like it better if the malts showed through more.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy fine to large sized bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a transparent typically carbonated copper brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy. The crisp mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of hops and mild caramel. An OK brew just nothing special.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear copper. Crusty bread and somewhat stale citrus hops are the first impressions. Wet and syrupy hops clash with a lactic and abrasive malt structure. Stale bread and mashed potatoes come to mind. Not good.

Tap at the airport hub in Denver. Nice copper color with a clingy white head. Light hop flavor, kind of bready, easy to drink. Aroma is pretty lacking, just a faint hint of hops.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampler @ Denver Airport location. Has a completely light amber color. Aroma is all hops; made up of lightly sweet, lightly green, and strongly citrus hops. This comes out a bit more muddled in the flavor and I could not differentiate the different hop components as well. There is a bit of white bread sweetness from the malts added to the mix as well. Itís low on the bitterness and an above average carbonation. In the end, it is your basic/standard brewpub APA/IPA.
