Thin head, not much lacing, nice copper color. Strong citrus note from the hops. Very bitter. The flavor and aroma crawl up your nose even after you put down the glass. The taste lingered to tease me again later in the day. I enjoyed every sip of this beer. Made my layover at the Denver airport that much better.

Very fruity and citrusy smells coming together to form a sort of tart pungency. You get a bit of spicy hops followed by the cereal, bready sweet malts and then ending with the fruity tart citrus hop flavored bitter finish. Very delicious beer. Its a very creamy rich beer for a lighter pale ale style. You can tell it isnt an American style Pale Ale but still has enough hop delicious flavor melding together to create a unique Pale ale.

Visited the brewery in Denver and had a great time with Bernie, one of the brewers. Nothing like a great friendly brewery! This was dark amber with a beautiful head. Nicely hopped and lightly malty for a good balance. Good American Pale.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2014 Appearance: rich darker gold color, almost amber, pours with a medium sized beige head, it’s moderately dense Aroma: intense grain, smells like my malt bag when I brew, pretty amazing, oats, can’t smell it enough Taste: very grainy, some hints of coffee, wheat, also has an assertive hop backbone that compliments the grain very well, oats Palate: slightly below average carbonation, bitter aftertaste, medium mouthfeel, Overall: this is a beer that tastes just like my home brewing malt cheese bag, it’s delicious, really wish we got great divide here, they named it pale ale but it’s head and shoulders better than other malt front beers ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A very complex Pale Ale. Has the right amount of bitterness and has very interesting aftertastes with hints of this and that. Liked this one! The Brewery is cool too.

This is my new favorite Pale Ale. I just ordered a big pile of it for my store because I love it so much. I think this is an incredibly well balanced beer that can be enjoyed by a wide spectrum of people. It has a fuller mouth feel than the average pale, and when my glass was empty I was certainly ready for another bottle.
