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.

Possibly their best brew, enjoyed at the Boulder brewpub. I can see why this is a mainstay. Lacey though minimum head, on a slight amber body. C-aroma and grapefruit taste, towards an IPA in biterness and taste. Very good drinkability, particularly in relation to the rest of their lineup.

onceblind (7313) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 9, 2010
On tap @ The Southern Sun brewpub. Deep rusty orange in color, almost like a red ale, with a white creamy head. Smelled a bit like a pink pencil eraser plus some malt. Other smells, if any, were hard to pick up on. Taste was classic pale ale: mild hoppiness, some doughy yeast, with balanced malts. Just on the hoppy side of balanced. Very approachable with a dry finish.

On tap at the Vine St Pub. Pours a clear amber with a beige head. Good nose of biscuit malt, citrus, and pine. Solid pale ale lots of citrus and pine hops on top of a malty flavors. Good bitterness, really solid for an average pale ale. 7/4/8/4/15

Dogbrick (11480) - 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.

hatchattack (255) - Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2010
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.

Draft at Vine Street Pub. Pours a thin off white head, over a slightly hazy, amber (SRM 10) body.....nose is light grapefruit, bit of pine.....taste is light malts to start, with a bit of caramel/toffee then pine and grapefruit, finishing with hop bitterness.....mouth feel is light, carbonation is there. This is a mildly malted and hopped beer. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

notalush (5728) - 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 (5074) - 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.
