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.

Beermack (725) - London, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2013
12oz bottle at Probus Wines, Dublin. Deep, murky, russet red pour with thin off-white head. Aroma gives thick pine resin, lots of caramel, and a light nuttiness. Taste brings mouth-coating pine resin, some grapefruit, lots of deep sweet caramel, some woody notes. Plenty of piney bitterness - pretty assertive. Medium/full mouthfeel. Lingering pine resin and caramel in the aftertaste. A tasty, hoppy and hard-hitting American Amber.

Flavourful aroma of malts and fruits, lovely dark red colour with nice foamy head. So far so good. Full on flavours of malts, caramel and toasted nuts. Awesome body, smooth mouthfeel with a long bitter finish. Very enjoyable.

33 cl bottle @ Oharas Freehouse, BBE 20.06.2013
Rather nice aroma with fruits, resiny hops and some vanilla. Flavour is somewhat sweet with resin, hops, some fruity notes, caramel and hints of pine needles. Finishes with gooseberry bush. Distant woody notes and hints of berries in the middle of the glass. Refreshing and nice, feels slightly watery on some sips though.

(Bottle, 0.355 l - BBE 6/20/13, at Oluttupa Viisi Penni, 20130523) The beer poured dark reddish brown. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had piny hops, malts and caramell. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were pine, malts, bread, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, hoppy and bitter. A hoppy and musty beer. Perhaps the beer was a bit too old.
