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.

RexTalionis (2424) - FINLAND - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle 12 fl.oz. Pours deep amber in color with a small tan head. Very strong hoppy in aroma, some sweeter notes as well, some pine too. A bit of light grapefruit bitterness in taste, although this isn’t on the whole that over-the-top bitter, more leaning to the sweeter side. Quite soft. Some malty sweetness and a light grassy bitter in aftertaste.

Strykzone (4930) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2009
A copper colored brew with a nice frothy tan head. A pleasant malty and hop aroma is well balanced. Plenty of hops tasted. They are pine and grapefruit. The beer also offers some grain flavors. Well rounded, well balanced, and well done!

phaleslu (6430) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2010
12 oz. bottle as an extra in a trade with LtDan- thanks again, Dan! Pours a clear red-amber color with a half-inch thick tan head that leaves some light lacing within the glass. Aroma of earthy hops, citrus, caramel malts, pineapple, and a sharp chemical note. Earthy hops lead and finish the flavor, which also has notes of pine, dirt, tea leaves, light caramel malts, pineapple, citrus, and the same chemical note that shows up on the nose. Medium-bodied, with good carbonation and a mouthfeel that falls somewhere between tea-like and oily. Interesting beer, and nice job for the style.

Terminus (3237) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAR 27, 2010
bottle-deep mahogony hue with a nice soapy eggshell colored head. big hoppy nose with quite a bit of sweet malt backbone as well. some nice herbal notes as well. flavors are sweet, hopppy, florarl, herbal, and nice carmel malt kick. not really that bitter but a little pine sits in there as well. a somewhat plastic note comes in the mid palate. palate is soft and medium mouthfeal. a much better than average beer for the style. maybe a bit too sweet for my liking (less sweet when fresh) but still very good.
