Taste is grapefruit, snappy, crackers, sweet caramel, ganja, weedy, and somewhat toasty with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Not a bad pale ale, but nothing special...at least it tastes fresh.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
On hand at Denver Summer Beer Fest 2012. Clear copper with a weird aroma like stale hops and sweat. Flavor is ok but has a metallic aftertaste. Throughout there is a bit of toffee and herbal hops, but that strong metallic finish is killer...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz plastic cup draft at the Tiki Bar at the Dillon Marina (which is owned by Pug Ryan). Pour is a clear golden orange with a smallish off white head. The aroma is cracker malt along with a lighter bitter citrus and mild pine hop. Nice balance on the nose, fresh. The taste is the nose, a nice smooth cracker malt, with slightly sweet caramel, blended with the lightly bitter citrus pine hops. The palate is thin to medium, crisp quick finish. Smooth easy drinking beer, perfect for sitting on the dock at the marina.
