COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This time of year in the Rockies, one day can span all four seasons. Morning snow gives way to afternoon sun, sending fresh snowmelt into our rivers and into our mash tun. With a complex malt backbone dry hopped for notes of citrus and pine, it’s almost as surprising as the season itself.

Clear reddish-amber pour with thin off-white head. Nose is a very citrus piney hop blast. Taste is more balanced with a nice dose of citrus hops at the outset layered on top of a longer lasting light caramel and biscuit malt sweetness. Very tasty one here.

DuffMan (7368) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 26, 2015
Bottle, shared on TvM’s Bachelor Party NW Ale Trail Expedition. Deep red-orange, richly malty, sweet and bready with lovely ripe tropical fruit hop character, piney undertones. An excellent India Red Ale-- I liked it better than their IPA (which was also great).

Fruity aroma. Rich amber in color with a creamy head. Rather sweet with some toasty hops and a nice note of citrus. Extremely smooth and drinkable.

Red pour with a one finger tan head.malty aroma ,no hops aroma. Taste is overly sweet with very little hops flavor. Not worth the effort

RSRIZZO (1873) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 20, 2015
12oz bottle poured into a Tulip at 40°. Color is a clear bright amber with mellow carbonation and soft off white head. Aroma has a fresh hop scent backed by sweet malt. It has a medium body that give a light crisp mouth feel. Flavor comes in with mild sweet malt and white pepper then the hops jump in with a nice citrus and mellow bitterness. In the after taste the hops briefly spike which brightens the citrus, then it finishes with a lingering bitterness. Overall it’s a great brew, very well balanced.

Big grapefruit and pineapple aroma. Grapefruit and juicy pineapple taste. Slightly boozy and mildly resinous finish. Very tasty. Exceeded my expectations. High quality IPA.
