3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
5oz taster at the brewery. Neon opaque copper color, good lacing, good head, appetizing as hell. Good description, itís hop-forward, very floral, a little grassy/farmy beer--easy-drinking, not very hoppy, no severe bitterness. Get some!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 65 cl. Comes as "RiNo Pale Ale". Pours amber with a slight haze and a lacing, off-white head. Very biscuity malt aroma with hardly any hops coming through. Medium body, biscuity crystal malts, some subtle bitterness but honestly not much going on here. Inoffensive though. 090514

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from the brewery. Pours a hazy copper color. The aroma here is very earthy, a little biscuity with grassy notes and damp grains which I also noticed in the 825 stout. After half a goblet, I decided this may be for English pale lovers. Itís balanced and easy drinking but also lacks serious citrus character and the malts are very prominent. The finish is earthy, musty, and I want to say tart or metallic, but I canít commit to it. Itís a fair pale ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden ish copper, thin ring of white head. The nose smells very íGermaní with some mildly earthy biscuit and toast, with a subdued but very present grassy hop tone. Flavor starts with some toffee and strong leafy/grassy hop tones, a bit of marzen flavors, biscuit, leafy bitterness, and lots of lagered toast flavors. Interesting. And delightful!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
651 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, gradually diminishing white head, with heavy lacing, over a very slightly hazy, dark amber (SRM 15) body....nose is cereal, light pine, hints of citrus peel, light toffee/caramel.....taste is light cereal, hints of sweetness with toffee/caramel tones, leading to a moderate pine, citrus bitterness.....mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, carbonation low with light acid on the finish. This is very nicely balanced. The bitterness is lower than many in this style. BJCP 8/2/14/4/6

Think itís lame Epic renames an existing beer to market to Denver....really you couldnít come up with something a bit different? Oh well, at least itís agood beer. Deep orange. Malt and light caramel nose with some orange citrus. Taste is biscuit malt and round palate with balanced bitterness. Nice pale ale.
