Interesting some what malty pale ale. Had good balance between caramel sweetness and bright citrusy hops. Easy drinking with lots of flavor. arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2012
On tap at Copper Kettle. Copper color with a decent head, some lace. Smells a little like citrus, clean. The taste is a nice pale ale, hoppy, bright (as advertised), not too bitter, very easy to drink. Apparently this uses cascade hops exclusively and its a really solid pale ale. I think this was the best beer I had there and the most likely candidate for me to get a growler fill of.
Serving type: on-tap

Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice grass and grapefruit, hints of lemon zest, touch of cracker and biscuity malts, some slight sweet honey in there. Taste was a mix of slight grass, pine, hints of citrus, plenty of biscuit and bready malts, touch of earth finishing fairly bitter, clean. onceblind (10114) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Hazy orange gold, with a thin dissipating head. Beautiful aroma of floral hops, a little pine, and some subtle spice I cant identify. A little caramel as well. Taste was big for such a medium body. Crisp and smooth, and delectably sweet for a hoppy beer. Hops are flavoring, not bittering in this brew, thoughthere is plenty of bitterness to balance. Nice floral hops, mild toffee, mild caramel, more hops, but it’s balanced with sweetness more on the forefront. Beautiful. Drinkable, clean, big flavor, balanced, everything an American Craft Beer needs to be. I might be in love. notalush (5897) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - APR 22, 2011
Tap at the brewery - cloudy copper - a bit under carbonated, and as a result, has a bit of a flabby body and watery texture - their alt had the same issue - a smack of citrus hits the palate first, followed by some bready malt - moderate acidity, but fairly subdued bitterness, considering how much hop flavor their is - a hint of sweetness through the middle - good, but a touch more bitterness would be nice to cover up that acidity. cubs (10677) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 22, 2011
On tap @ Copper Kettle Denver. Orange appearance with a white head. Pretty pale malty nose with some citrus fruit hints from the mild to medium hoppiness. I think this is a touch undercarbonated (like the altbier). Great pale malty, full body with a medium orange citrusy hoppiness. Mild citrus hoppy aftertaste. In a world full of overly hopped IPAs, it’s nice to have a milder APA like this.
