This is an exceptional pale ale. Hops gallore! It tastes like a dream wrapped in a river of centennial hops. Something about this beer makes me giddy like a school girl. Only problem is that it’s NOT AVAILABLE most of the time. I wish the Sun brewers would keep this awesome brew on tap at all times... But otherwise, keep brewin’!!!

Mason jar purchased @ Mountain Sun during GABF week 2006. Was worried about this one b/c when I unpacked it after the trip, the seal on the Mason jar had expanded and beer was leaking out. Decided to open it tonight w/ the expectation of pouring it out due to oxidation. Cracked it open and I knew I wouldn’t be pouring it out. Huge hop aroma and thick, bubbly head. Body is very smooth and light, w/ the finish packing a huge flowery, rose petal hop finish.
