12 oz. bottle. Bottled 01/2014. Pours a medium, ivory, well retained hed, with extensive lacing, over a slightly hazy, dark amber (SRM 15) body....nose is light pine, resin, citrus peel from the hops, light toasted malts with toast, biscuit tones, very light hints of toffee/caramel, minimal esters from the yeast....taste is light toffee/caramel sweetness with cereal tones. leading to a lightly floral, pine, resin, citrus peel moderate bitterness, minimal esters.....mouth feel, body is light of medium, clean light acid finish, low carbonation, with a clean smooth finish. This is a nicely balanced example of the style. It is a bit light on malt and hop complexity and could use more in both backbones. Would suggest adding more Cascade for the dry hopping, and a bit of crystal/caramel malt to up malt complexity and body. BJCP 7/3/15/4/6.

Fort Collins Brew Fest 2003: Fairly hazy. Citrus aroma, definitely of Cascade hops, the taste, too. This was nice and refreshing during a nice hot Colorado summer day.

This is a good APA but tasted much better at the brewery than it does in the bottle. The hop character is aggresive for a pale ale but it’s to my liking.

This along with the Laughing Lab was easily the best brew that I had on my visit to Colorado Springs several years back. A very light and smooth session beer with not a ton of flavor to it, but just enough to get the job done. Solid effort by these guys.

copper pour from a 12oz bottle, the last several reviewers describe it perfectly, miminal head, little lacing, hoppy aroma and malty body with a decent bitterness and medium cabronation. In other words, a good american pale ale.

Dogbrick (14316) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2009
Bottle at Jonesy’s Eatbar in Denver. Pours clear amber-orange with a thin off-white head that diminishes quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Bready malt and hops aroma. Light to medium body with flavors of pine, hops and some yeast and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a hops aftertaste that does not linger long. Slightly above average overall.

mar (5456) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2010
bottle thanks to bman1113vr. deep amber with a white head. caramel, light fruity hops and not much else. thin palate, light hop flavors, smooth esters and that about sums it up.

notalush (5955) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Another inoffensive, drinkable, yet uninspiring bottled offering from this brewery - a fairly sturdy malt base sets up and earthy cascade flavor - high hop flavor, but low hop bitterness - some herbal, tea-like character - medium sweet - a little yeasty in the finish - peppery on the tail end - okay.

12 oz bottle courtesy of jbye4334. Pours a muddy orange/amber color with a 2 finger foamy head. Mildly sweet caramel aroma with a wet hop background. Moderately bodied palate with average carbonation. Flavor is grassy hops tinted with honey and caramel.

This is a great pale ale that goes great with dinner. Nice copper pour with a malty aroma. The flavor is mildly hoppy and smooth. I would recommend this one to anyone who likes local pales or well balanced beer
