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.

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.

Sampler at the Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery, Boulder 12/10/2008 Malt aroma. Mid brown coloured smooth on the palate with a little fruit flavour. Some bitterness in a crisp and dry malt finish.

Smooth like an Amber but a strong hoppy bitter bite to it. Awesome balance between flavors. Try it on Nitro, on of the few hoppy beers I think the nitro smoothness improves!

Clear lightly hazy red color. Nice mixture of hops on the nose. Mainly sweet hops with some bittering. Poured through nitro which leads to a creamy feel. Taste is pretty light on the hops. What is tasted is almost a bitter coffee flavored hop. It doesn’t have a coffee flavor per se, but it leaves you thinking you had a cup. Lots of aroma hops with a smooth finish.

Crushed with Jakebra on tap at the brewpub. Good hops. Excellent profile for a pale ale. Smooth, hoppy, and nice. Dug it.

Very fresh and bright, exactly what you’d expect out of an American Pale ale.

(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy amber body with a small beige head. Aroma of floral, citrus, orange, and light pine. Flavor of caramel, nuts, light roasted malt, and hops (grass, pine) with moderate bitterness in the finish.

On tap at Southern Sun. Pours dark red working on brown. I am not quite sure this beer delivers as advertised. More hops? This is one of the more balanced beers I have ever had. That said, there is a fruity nose. I smell grapes. There is a light chocolate not to go along with some toasty notes. Medium body and average carbonation, ho hum. Not even really all that bitter. I would call this a beginner beer.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2008
Growler from brewery. Poured a deep copper-amber color with a thick off-white head that left good lacing. Aroma of floral, piny hops with some light undertones of citric fruit. Smooth, lightly malty entry with some light caramel that transitions into a soft, piny hoppiness with a hint of fruitiness. Moderate carbonation, decent mouthfeel. All around, solid APA that I would probably drink a decent amount of if I lived in Boulder, but thank god I am not a liberal hippie scum that infest the town.
