COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First Cast pours a hazy gold, with soft orange hues and white fluffy head that sits on its peak like the snow on the 14,000-foot mountains that are the backdrop to our microbrewery. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, and citrus hops as well as hints of caramel and fresh bread from our locally grown malt invade the senses.The beer hits with a smooth hop bitterness that tingles across the tongue with a lingering bite of mountain pine, grapefruit and fresh citrus notes. This beer is designed as an everyday brew for the craft beer aficionado, with a medium body and a high carbonation to refresh the palate.

Enjoyed a pint of this beer on tap at the brewery. The beer had an amber-copper color was good sized foamy white head with average retention, cling, and lacing. It’s aroma featured grainy and earthy hops with some light citrus and fruity notes. The taste was a fresh bitter blend of lighter earthy and grainy hops with light citrus and just a touch of malt. It was very crisp and fresh in the mouth with good carbonation and an easy to drink body.

Pours amber and very clear with a nice lasting head. Aroma of grassy hops and stonefruit. Taste is similar with a real nice palate. Nothing stands out as spectacular, but a real solid well rounded beer.

A nice change of pace for an American IPA. Aroma is subtle and shows some caramel malt, bit of orange, some nice earth and spice. Overall a subtle yet highly drinkable IPA.

6/27/2015: Grabbed a bottle of this to enjoy at the park while watching the rafters before heading over to the airport... To be honest, this bottle wasn’t particularly fresh given that the label had a date stamp of Oct 2014, but so be it.. Drank it from an insulated stainless steel bottle, but the beer looked to be a nice golden color when I was pouring it in at the car. This drank more like an English style IPA, but had a lot more bite. I probably say that since the hops were degraded and more of the bready and biscuit maltiness was coming through. The hop flavors were herbal and spicy with some grass and pine. The bitterness level was okay, but it seemed a bit raw and therefore it didn’t have a very good aftertaste of overly pleasing lingering bitterness. Medium body, well-carbonated. Decent enough, but definitely far from prime or the best beer that we had on the trip. Good bye CO, we’ll miss you! :(
