COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This time of year in the Rockies, one day can span all four seasons. Morning snow gives way to afternoon sun, sending fresh snowmelt into our rivers and into our mash tun. With a complex malt backbone dry hopped for notes of citrus and pine, its almost as surprising as the season itself.

RexTalionis (3550) - FINLAND - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle 12 fl.oz. Pours deep amber in color with a small tan head. Very strong hoppy in aroma, some sweeter notes as well, some pine too. A bit of light grapefruit bitterness in taste, although this isnt on the whole that over-the-top bitter, more leaning to the sweeter side. Quite soft. Some malty sweetness and a light grassy bitter in aftertaste.

BucannonXC5 (1460) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Hotel glass (half pint, half snifter) From: Wilburs Total Beverage in Fort Collins, Colo. Price: Part of a variety 6-pack for $9.99 Purchased: May 2, 2013 Consumed: May 3, 2013 Misc.: Best by June 26, 2013 Poured a dark red clear color with one finger of khaki tan head that dissipated quickly. Average sporadic lacing on the sides of the glass. Average retention, surprising considering how fast the head disappeared. Smelled a surprising whiff of floral hops to start. Also got some nutty malts, buttery malts and some light caramel malts. Tasted floral hops, buttery malts and nutty malts for the most part. Hops are the best part here. Medium-to-light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, slightly bitter finish. This beer had its moments but I think something was just a bit off. That being said, Id probably give it another try.
