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.

Crystal clear amber ale. Light off white head. Mild pine and pineapple hop nose. Neutral palate, just about perfect! Very well balanced. Even malt and the hops are lively mix of grapefruit (not too bitter), pine and pineapple. Finishes minerally with a little carbonated sting. A fine fine Red Ale.
