First Cast pours a hazy gold, with soft orange hues and white fluffy head that sits on its peak like the snow on the 14,000-foot mountains that are the backdrop to our microbrewery. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, and citrus hops as well as hints of caramel and fresh bread from our locally grown malt invade the senses.The beer hits with a smooth hop bitterness that tingles across the tongue with a lingering bite of mountain pine, grapefruit and fresh citrus notes. This beer is designed as an everyday brew for the craft beer aficionado, with a medium body and a high carbonation to refresh the palate.

rosenbergh (11931) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 15, 2016
12 oz bottle. Bottled on 02/10/16. (Three Rivers Wine & Spirits) Longmont, CO.
Clear golden color with a tiny white head. Really mild aroma of apple juice, hops and malt. The flavor is dry piney and resiny hops, mild bitterness, woody dryness and dry malt. I wasn’t expecting a fresh one as this is bottled in February. When do I learn to check the bottles in the store?

DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2016
Draft at Whole Foods PM. Pours hazy straw with off-white head. Nose was tart fruit, hops. Tasted tart, fruity, with lemongrassy hops, finished more tart than I would have liked.

onceblind (10861) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 4, 2012
On hand at Denver Summer Beer Fest 2012. Hazy golden with generous fluffy white head. Aroma of strong hoppy tones like peppery pine and fresh cut flowers, with a nice earthy toffee presence underneath. Taste is clean but sharp and full, with delightful hop tones of bitter grassiness, some light floral herbalnes, and a nice belgianesque malt tone that’s both dusty yet grainy. Interesting and complex.
