A highly drinkable and enjoyable ale. Reminds me of a toned down APA with a whole lot more class and malt. This might be Boulders most consistent offering -- would make a nice 6pack.

Dark copper with a medium head. Strong, floral hop aroma with some residual malt sweetness. It almost smells like a bag of East Kent Goldings with some Cascade added. Bittersweet taste. Strong malt body, but with a bit hit of earthy, English hops for bittering. Its kind of like a cranked English IPA, but a little sweeter. Nice.

WTF! i mean if youwont do a real british style dont fucking call it one. Damnit! - O.K. that will not affect my rating. apple juice colored body that actually looks a bit grey?? good lasting head from the bottle. orange blossom sweet aroma with a floral hop presence too, like water from a flower vase. burnt hop taste, damnit! pine lingers in a bad way here. this is abrasive & downright offensive. unbalanced. id really like to knowif this is what was originally wanted when this beer was brewed, or if they missed the mark, but had to bottle it regardless. there is some kind of malt flavor under all this burnt resin, but im just reading it as a bad tea note, if there is something else i cant describe it past that it is muted. i was looking forward to this one even if i thought the label was stupid. oh well, hopefully the next in the series will be better. 3 6 2 1 5

22 oz- rich, nutty, and flavorful. hops were allegedly earthy, and more in the english style, but they tasted pretty pnw to me. Did taste like more of an american pale ale, but there is some complexity that indicates this is something different. Nice.

22 oz bottle. Dry and piny hops on the nose. Sweet malt. Grassy. Very aromatic nose. Pours golden copper with decent lacing down the glass. Slightly disappointing flavor: hops and malt give way to a watered down metallic finish. Earthy malt tones develop after warming. Decent carbonation. Slightly watered down finish.

Skyview (5706) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 18, 2007
From a 22-oz bottle shared with joebrew, pours a clear orangish amber brew with a slow dissolving off-white head that leaves behind a good lacing and ring. Aroma of citrus peel, grapefruit and some lightly roasted malt. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with a moderately bitter grapefruit, honey bread and spruce tips. Finish is hopyy bitter with a tart grapefruit aftertaste. Definitely appeaching a West Coast IPA caliper beverage but still an Engish Storng Ale.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2007
Pours a nice orangish/amber, with virtually no head. Nice biscuity malt hints as well as some nice floral hoppy accent as well as a hint of honey. Suprisingly bitter, with just a hint of sweet caramel malt on the front palate, but the hops quickely take over, and give a grapefruit like citrus acidity. Not bad

22 oz bottle. Poured a beautful golden/amber with a small, active head. Aroma of British bitter with citrus, but the taste is smooth and hoppy. Has some sweet malt up front and then hoppy bitterness. I really enjoyed this one.

The 22 ounce bottle poured a beautifully clear reddish amber colored beverage with a modest frothy off-white head that lasted well and left good lacing on the glass. The aroma was less hoppy than I expected but there was a fair amount of citrus hop nose present accompanied by a subtle caramel malt note. The body was medium-full with soft carbonation and a smooth creamy texture. The flavor starts out lightly sweet but quickly turns moderately bitter and remains that way through the medium-long finish.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2007
Bottle. Pours a beautiful cheddar orange with a lively body and a slightly off-white head. Apricot seems to be the dominant aroma in the nose; quite pleasant and light. Flavor is floral apricot with a nice sweet/bitter finish of grapefruit. Nice mouthfeel; flavors are dispersed quite nicely along the tongue. Very enjoyable brew; Ill buy more of this for sure.
