4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Damn....second killer brew I have had from these guys. Bottle 13 of 540. About a year old in the bottle. Nose of cherry cough syrup, oak, malt. Malty sweet front then syrupy cherry watermelon almost sour tardiness. Red wine barrel very well integrated. Extremely well balanced. These guys are knocking it outta the park for me so far.

Falling Rock during GABF. Clear brilliant golden with a large fluffy white head. Leafy hoppy sweet aroma with a touch of tangerine and/or orange sweetness. Smooth flavor with mild-low hop bitterness, some caramel and some sweet clementine fruitiness. Mild and balanced hoppy dry ending.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at the Colorado State Fair, Foam Fest ’12. Pour is hazy amber with a big, off-white head and good lacing. Huge citrus, orange juice, tangerine, grapefruit, wood, and light vanilla in the aroma; super fruity. Taste is much more muted, with notes of orange, light grass, grapefruit, and caramel ending lightly bitter. Light body with high carbonation. Pretty nice barrel aged APA, with a wonderful aroma.
