2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark yellow to light amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit/kumquat), with a note of citrus pith.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Quite pithy/acrid in the nose and rather sour in the mouth, so a bit hard to enjoy. Pretty much the same quality as their Utah-brewed products, sadly.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilburís Fort Collins for $3.99. Pours a bit hazy orange appearance with a nice, lasting, off white head. Citrusy, grapefruit/orange, a bit sweet, slightly spicy hoppy, a bit earthy aroma. A bit tangy/sweet, toasty malty, bready, lightly bitter, orange fruity flavor. A bit syrupy. I didnít enjoy this as much as some pale ales from Epic.

Clear amber pour with a big white head. Aroma of toffee, carmel and hay. Bittersweet flavor with caramel, toffee, grassy hop bitters. More sweet and roasty malt flavored than most pales. Still very well balanced and plenty of hop flavor to go around here.
