I have to say this is a terrific beer!!! Great flavors, mix hoppy citrusy, amber smoothness and nice bitter finish under the layers of flavors. This is a must for anyone who hasn’t had this style or tried this breweries products. Its great. GrandRiverZip (9) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2011 does not count

This is one of my all-time favorites. Straight out of Ft. Collins comes one of the best brews in the state. Very unique hoppiness...smooth finish. wesyates (55) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - OCT 26, 2013

A slight malty sweetness makes this beer an easy drinking beer. Great with burgers Hanan (86) - NW Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Classic in between beer. I like to hit this #2 of 3 between a lighter and dark. Pours copper $ pretty. A little hopiness at the end that dries out slightly smokey, roasting that malt. Nutty, malty, a fair deep amber ale half in it. A kind, fresh finish. I might detect a slight orange peel to it in a refreshing way. A Scottish beer, whatever the hell that means. Good shit. Beer is awesome. brewskilover85 (17) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - MAY 31, 2014
This is such an incredible beer. So much flavor and aroma packed. This is quite a treat to drink ajd413 (18) - Colorado, USA - DEC 10, 2015
pours a dark amber color with nice off-white head. Aroma is malt-forward with a hint of hops. Caramel and a touch of coffee are present. Flavor is extremely well balanced. Though it’s on the malty side, it’s not sweet, and has a detectable hop bitterness that plays very well with the malts. Finish is super-clean, making you want another sip. I finished this bottle way too fast. Time to find another! loginimpaired99 (2) - la jolla, California, USA - AUG 5, 2001 does not count
This beer is the one that I order from my hometown. It doesn’t fit any traditional category. It mixes red, amber and IPA qualities. It is the beer drinker’s version of Fat Tire.
