Tap at Mtn Sun. Pours clear gold with small white head, settles quick with min lace. Aroma is hoppy, piney, resin, ester, sweet yeast, nutty malt. Flavor is fruity, banana pear, with a citrus hoppy, bitter finish. Decent but nothing special. Moderate carbonation and light body.

On tap at Moutain Sun in Boulder. Pour is slightly hazy golden orange appearance with a big white head and great lacing. Grainy, bready, slightly citrusy, grassy, straw, and orange peel in the aroma. Taste is again malty, straw, bread, light citrus, grass, biscuit, cereal, and grain with a light bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Ok.

3fourths (7885) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 16, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2014 draft pint is a lightly hazed pale gold with a creamy white head. earth / spice / floral notes from the hallertauer and tetnanger combine with soft juicy citrus notes from the cascade. english ale yeast gives it a rustic, dusty, gravelly character. though it’s a little too chalky, and I can see maybe getting sick of that attribute after a few, it’s nicely dry and snappy and the hop character is well-suited. seems to sit somewhere in the venn diagram of english pale ale / e.s.b. / extra pale ale. nicely made and easy to drink. Update jan 2014: cooked peanuts and butter god damn it.

Clear honey gold with a lasting medium sized rocky white head, that leaves sticky lace. Balanced aroma of citrus hops, light grassiness, a little bit of floral grapefruit, and a subtly sweet caramel undertone. Taste is exceptionally balanced, well rounded, and tasty. Zesty floral and citric hops meld beautifully with some pale maltiness and a big toffee backbone, leading to a toffee filled finish with a whisper of leafy grassy hops. Bitter only on the finish, and not overly so. Balanced and refreshing. Like Sierra Nevada Pale, but a little more assertive and rounded.

Sampler at Vine Street. Pours a thin white head over a dark amber (SRM 10) body.....nose is light cereal, slight hop tones....taste is cereal, light toffee/caramel, light hop bitter finish....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation low. This is a typical APA. It is neither outstanding nor terrible. BJCP 7/4/12/4/6
