A good, if slightly boring pale. Pounds an average clear orange. Smells slightly peachy. Taste is creamy, like the pinnacle, but a nicer aftertaste. Had on tap at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ratman197 (9808) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 11, 2012
On tap at Triple Rock poured a clear orange amber with a small lingering ivory head. Aromas of bread, fruittiness and light earthiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, light citrus and light earthiness with a crisp lingering citrus finish.

A decent beer, but I definitely prefer Triple Rock’s IPA. I felt it somewhat lacked in taste and on the palate.

A - Served a clear golden-orange color wit ha finger of frothy white head atop. The head fades down slowly leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of some light citrus hop with some sweet caramel malt and some graininess. A bit of breadiness as well with some fruity esters. T - Starts out with some caramel and other sweet malts with a bit of citrus hops and bitterness. Through the middle, more sweet grainy malts come through with a bit of breadiness and a bit of fruity esters. The finish is a mix of a touch more bitterness, more sweet bready malts, and a bit of sugary sweetness. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth a sweet and moderately dry finish. D - Very drinkable. Flavors feel just a bit off. The beer is a bit too malty and could have used a bit more hop presence to balance.

On tap. Aroma is of earthy, citrus hops. Flavor is well balanced malt and hops. Palate is OK, a little on the fizzy side.

Amber pour with a white head. Great lacing and head retention. Malt and fruit stand out with subtle citrus hops and a clean dry finish.

A: The pour is a clear golden-orange color with a finger of white head. S: Just an off nose to this beer. I get, perhaps, some body odor and rear end to start. There’s certainly a bit of skunk and some yeasty notes, too. A weird grain husk and malt character. Overall, it’s somewhat harsh. T: A weird blend of semi-sweet and bitter flavors. There seems to be a bit of a burnt sugar flavor along with a lot of sugar and some golden plums and candied orange peel. Really a meh flavor. M: The body is medium and so is the carbonation. D: I wouldn’t recommend this one. One of the few beers that I wasn’t a fan of at all.
