3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ Snowshoe. Pours a bright, brilliantly clear golden-orange color; creamy, fine-bubbled off-white head with excellent retention and lacing. Some pleasant, rounded biscuity and caramel malts in the aroma (nicely done maltiness) alongside some earthy bitterness; more of an amber than anything. Medium body; medium CO2; round, but well-attenuated. Nice, rounded biscuity and caramel maltiness, along with just enough balancing earthy/mineral bittering hops; balanced overall, and hugely drinkable. Like a winter warmer for summer in the mountains. Medium-length finish: biscuity, minerals, dry.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 a little maltier than i like in apale, but the malt was great. a touch of vanilla and woodsy, with the citrusy hops coming out to play in the finish. underrated, but likely not as good bottled as on tap.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pleasant beer 12oz bottle. More or less a fools you to think it is a hoppy beer but it is rather smooth. Very favorable with hints of citrus. Good balance of hops and seems like a slightly roasted malt. Great summer brew although it is called snowshoe. I would be happy to have this again. Refreshing sums it up.

Pours copper with a thin orangy head. The aroma is fresh citrusy and fruity hops. The flavor is a nice balance between sweet fruit with a touch of caramel and bread and a pleasantly hoppy finish. A nice go to APA.
