On tap at brewpub. Pour is clear orange with a frothy white head and great lacing. Doughy, bready, somewhat citrusy, grapefruity, orang peel, and caramelly aroma. Taste is earthy, grassy, doughy, bready, light caramel, fruit peel and oranges with a light bitter finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Meh.

Tap. pours clear amber with thin, fizzy white head; good retention and spare lacing. Aroma is fresh grassy and floral hops, biscuit and cereal malts, lemon, light pine, and light caramel. Flavor is balanced dry, bready malts and fresh hops (medium bitterness) with some supporting citrus fruit esters and light caramel; dry, lightly hoppy finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

My favorite at the Dillon Dam brewery. Mildly hoppy with a slight bight, but smooth finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour on tap at the brewery was orange with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, biscuit, hints of spicy and grassy hops, touch of orange and grapefruit as well. Taste is a mix of spicy and grassy/pine hops, hints of caramel and biscuit, finishing fairly bitter. Nicely done!

Bottle. That a friend brought back from Colorado. Poured a hazy orange color with a smaller white head. Left mininal lacing on the glass as it went. Aroma was pines, citrus and grass. Flavor was sweeter malts up front with hop bitters in the finish. Well balanced. A dam good beer!!!

theisti (3211) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUL 11, 2011
12 oz bottle at the Two Below dinner and show. Pour is a copper golden with a smallish off white head. The aroma is sweet caramel malt, along with herbal, orange citrus and earthy hops. nice balance between the two aromas. The taste follows the nose, though lacking a bit of "pop". The caramel malt starts, the herbal orange and earthy hops follow. The aftertaste picked up an ever so slight vegetal taste which detracted a touch. The palate was light to medium bodied. Overall, nice enough APA.

Tap at brewery. Copper amber appearance with a medium sized amber colored head. Medium deep malty aroma with a light hoppiness. Medium bitterness with a dull hoppy flavor reminiscent of an ESB. Medium copper malty body.

Nikiel (877) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Bottle at ACBF. Pours light gold. More flavor than expected as an extra pale, with a fair amount of hops, but not particularly well balanced.

tmoreau (2366) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2010
12 oz. bottle poured to my 1/2 pint tasting glass with a cloudy, orange/amber hue, average, off white, bubbly head foam, and a good cling to a large band of lacing that spawned many streaks and dots down the interior of the glass. The aroma was perfumy, tropical fruit as pineapple, a little citrus, and sweet currants. The flavor added to these an initially pleasant, then lasting, moderate hop bitterness, less than medium body, followed by a dry finish. A nice APA, but I wouldn’t consider it a strong variety.
