Sampled at the brewpub. Bright amber with an off white ring. A gentle but fairly complex fruity nose. A bitter first sip. Grapefruit. Deep resonant bitterness. Rich pine hop flavors. This is dry. An off after taste. Resiny.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear medium hued orange. Aroma is spicy with a touch of green pepper with light toffee notes. Taste looses the green pepper (good) but is plenty hoppy without being resinous or imbalanced. Spicy-citrus with a load of crystal malts, sweet with a dry hopped grassy/floral finish. Definitely their best "normal" beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Denver airport. Hazy copper in color with a one finger white head that lasts. The aroma is subtle but nice with caramel malts and citrusy orangey hop notes. Very good flavor for Rock Bottom, with a good sweet caramel malt base, orange and grapefruit hops. The palate is as it should be, medium bodied, crisp, and clean with good carbonation level. Surprisingly solid overall, but not great in the big scheme of things.
