ganache (6032) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Draught at the Southern Sun. Golden-amber body, lightly hazy. Surprisingly bitter for an amber with soapy hops. Again, bitter Cascades and leafy greens. Medium body, definitely a palate cleanser. rollinsr (813) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - FEB 24, 2011
Come grab some of that Grateful Dankness that is the Colorado Kind. A nice rich amber color with a nice hoppy aroma. Fruit hoppy taste that is quite bitter. For the Pale Ale lovers out there I would suggest trying the Sun’s signature Kind Crippler (Kind mixed with the XXX pale ale) for an awesome hoppy bite to chase down all that delicious grub that Mountain Sun has to offer.

Possibly their best brew, enjoyed at the Boulder brewpub. I can see why this is a mainstay. Lacey though minimum head, on a slight amber body. C-aroma and grapefruit taste, towards an IPA in biterness and taste. Very good drinkability, particularly in relation to the rest of their lineup.

Notes from Thursday, October 03 2010
On tap at Mountain Sun
Ar: Pine, resin, big hop aroma with a mild malty undertone.
Ap: Orange-amber pour with a thin head, little lace.
T: Just a touch of malt sweetness, nice pine bitterness on the finish.
P: Medium body, medium carbonation. onceblind (10322) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 9, 2010
On tap @ The Southern Sun brewpub. Deep rusty orange in color, almost like a red ale, with a white creamy head. Smelled a bit like a pink pencil eraser plus some malt. Other smells, if any, were hard to pick up on. Taste was classic pale ale: mild hoppiness, some doughy yeast, with balanced malts. Just on the hoppy side of balanced. Very approachable with a dry finish.

On tap at the Vine St Pub. Pours a clear amber with a beige head. Good nose of biscuit malt, citrus, and pine. Solid pale ale lots of citrus and pine hops on top of a malty flavors. Good bitterness, really solid for an average pale ale. 7/4/8/4/15 Dogbrick (13547) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2010 Nitro sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange-amber color with a medium foamy light beige head that diminishes to a lasting film. Large sticky patches of lacing. Aroma of floral hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of floral hops, bready malt and some pine. The finish is smooth and malty with a light hops bite. Not bad overall but I would like to try off the tower sometime. savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Tap @ Vine St Pub. Slightly hazy copper with a fluffy head. Big aroma and full flavor of Pac NW hops, citrus, pine and floral with a caramel malt base. Medium to light body, average carbonation and a crisp, dry finish. Great beer, a little bit of "kind" in the aroma. hatchattack (255) - Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2010
Draught at Mountain Sun. Aroma of big floral hops and citrusy spice smell. poured a darker brown/amber color. on first sip you get the taste of the bitterness of the hops, and then there is a sweetness from the citrus with clean finish. drjay44 (3799) - Salida, Colorado, USA - APR 17, 2010
