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.

Aroma is malts, spices, a hint of sugar and very dank notes. The flavor is spices, slight vegetables, slight sweetness, grapefruit, malts and a mix of bitter and slight heat in the finish.

Pretty red, dark. Good head,diminishes quick surprisingly. Aroma is malty, kinda nutty, fresh, and light hop of which I cant detect much. Floral, mild. Maybe soapy. Taste is good for red ipa, its very smooth with a nice malt complexity, hops are different- not really hoppy and at the same time I don’t know what is going on here between malts and hops, so I guess its refined and complex, soft and creamy,no sharp or harsh malt, not overyly sweet but just enough.

Draft. Pours, um red. Thin white head that coats the glass. Great representative of the style. Some rye flavors with caramelized malt flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

commonmac (901) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Tap at Nighthawks with blonderedhead. Pint glass. Amber/copper color with some lacing and head of a tannish variety. Nose has some hops with pine and light citrus. Taste is pretty mild with a strong malt presence working well underneath a hoppy surface. Citrus and some resin. Kind of thins out towards the end with aftertaste clinging to hop bitterness. It’s nothing special but drinkable.

Beautiful deep copper, tan head, good lace. Amazing looking beer! Soft aroma - biscuity sweet malt, complex piney hops. Taste is very well balanced with bready malts and slightly resinous hops. Medium sweet finish with pretty full mouthful. Very good beer!
