kevinator (887) - The Colony, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2012
A very safe APA. Slight malty and hops aroma. Medium carbonated palate that was a little watery. Low malt sweetness and small hop aftertaste. Better than a standard bar beer and probably a staple for this brewery, just not very exciting. Easy to drink with a burger.

RABinCO (1207) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle into a fluted glass. Hazy gold pour. Thin white head. Grainy, lightly grassy aroma. Taste is..weird...kind of a banana taste. Easy drinking...but not great tasting. Weird for this style...drinks like a crappy wheat beer.

Taste at FyneFest. A deep golden colour. Quite thin consistency. Not great as far as beers go.

1" off white head at pour. Clear amber appearance. Mild malt and hop aroma. Taste is clean with a mild hoppy balance suitable for a pale ale. Grains of paradise add an almost indecipherable complexity at the finish.
