Pour on tap at Parry’s Pizza, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of very muted orange, grass, pine, slight biscuit, bready notes, hints of slight spice. Taste is similar, muted hops with a touch of grass, pine, biscuit and some slight toffee, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter. The hop presence is pretty far gone.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Falling Rock, Denver. The pour’s medium amber with a small white head. The aroma’s of medicinal hops, some orange peel, garden grove,, wild grass and general fruits. The taste is more medicinal, slightly harsh herbal hops. Some apricot and orange fruits. Somewhat yeasty body. Still, this isn’t tough to drink. Overall, not a bad beer. A little bit messy, but reasonably tasty stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Falling Rock during GABF. Hazy ish golden with a small rocky head. Big hop aroma of fresh cut grass, fresh cut flowers, pine resin, and a kind of earthy floral sweetness. Flavor starts bitter but it quickly subsides to an earthy floral sweetness, hoppy grassy leafy tones and mild bitterness. Very hop flavored throughout but not too bitter after the introduction.

Sampled at GABF 2012. I had heard a lot about this brewery and this was a small letdown. Hoppiness didn’t really kick in and was a bit muted. Mostly vegetal aroma and taste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2012 Tap at the Brewery. Pours a thick white, well retained, white head, with some lacing, over a slightly hazy, gold (SRM 5) body.....nose is rich pine, grapefruit, lighter toffee/caramel.....taste is pine, resin, heavy grapefruit tones, with a lingering moderate grapefruit dominated bitterness.....mouth feel medium, slightly sticky carbonation high. The citrus peel aromas and flavors were the dominant tones in the hop backbone. The malts managed, somehow, to stand up to the fresh hop barrage ending up with a remarkably refreshing, palate cleansing beer. It will not be available for long. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7
