COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What’s in a name? The brewer’s mantra, "more hops," is taken as far as possible in this beer. A deep amber body balances the bitterness and makes that long day at work seem a distant memory. Just ask for a pint of "the dank!!" This beer is also dry hopped with whole flower, Cascade hops.

Dogbrick (8237) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2010 Nitro sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange-amber color with a medium foamy light beige head that diminishes to a lasting film. Large sticky patches of lacing. Aroma of floral hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of floral hops, bready malt and some pine. The finish is smooth and malty with a light hops bite. Not bad overall but I would like to try off the tower sometime.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Tap @ Vine St Pub. Slightly hazy copper with a fluffy head. Big aroma and full flavor of Pac NW hops, citrus, pine and floral with a caramel malt base. Medium to light body, average carbonation and a crisp, dry finish. Great beer, a little bit of "kind" in the aroma.

Draught at Mountain Sun. Aroma of big floral hops and citrusy spice smell. poured a darker brown/amber color. on first sip you get the taste of the bitterness of the hops, and then there is a sweetness from the citrus with clean finish.

notalush (4910) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 18, 2010
Tap at Vine Street - these folks have a way with pales and ipas - great pour - cloudy bronze, huge, fluffy head that leaves behind rings of foam as you drink - nice, earthy hop profile - strong, too - more like an ipa - very full, creamy body - a bit of malt sweetness, but mostly dry and bitter - a bit earthy, almost nutty - a great session ale.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 8, 2010
Tap at MS during GABF week 09. My notes say Colorado Finest Kind. Pours a medium amber with a fluffy head. Aroma is nutty toasty and doughy slight yeast- grassy green hoppy, cascade citrus, Flavor is mint, pine, sap and resin with more lightly toasted malts, some caramel, yeasty doughy- mostly clean moderate bitter finish. Good.

nitro tap at Mountain Sun - Pours amber with an aroma of citrus hops and caramel malt. It has a moderately strong hop flavor with ample citrus notes. It has a fairly light body and the fine carbonation typical of nitro. Good brew.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2009
Draught at Mountain Sun - Nitro. Slightly hazy amber color with super thin tan head. Burnt caramel malt nose of cascade hop. Flavor is initially sweet but balanced by dry finis that lingers. Fun beer.

Tap at the pub. A nice drinkable brew. Not a lot of hops compared to their other brews. Nice drinkable brew.

On nitro tap at the brewpub on 7/17/09. Pours a darker orange amber, nice cream head. Pine hops aroma with little citrus grapefruit on the nose. Great hops flavor without all the bitterness. At this point, I tasted the Colorado Kind from a regular tap as well, and you do pick up more of the bitterness, but still decent hops flavor across the board.
