I had this on draft yesterday at the Boulder Beer Tap House inside Denver International Airport.

Appearance: Orange color. The beer poured a one finger head with some very nice lacing. Clarity is good with lots of tiny bubbles.

Smell: very light citrus and piney notes. All followed by sweet and bready malts.

Taste: Same as above with some spiciness and biscuit too. Very subtle flavors and enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: smooth, a little chewy, medium bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: this was a decent wet hopped ale. Looking for more out of the hops, but the wet hops were still nice.

Melony, herbal, hoppy nose. On tap, pours amber with a slight haze and a 1/2" white foam cap. Light caramel, melon with a touch of herbal to fresh vegetal lead the palate to a nice lingering hop finish. Effervescent and medium bodied.

On-tap at Boulder Beer Tap House at the Denver Airport

A: The pour is amber in color with a thin white head.

S: A very nice fruit aroma to this one. Citrus hop notes (grapefruit and orange) and a strong pineapple smell to it as well. A little bit of sweet malt to go with it.

T: Not quite as hoppy on the palate. Lots of citrus still, though. A bit of floral hops and a bit more in terms of pine bitterness. A bready malt sweetness with a bit of toasted malt.

M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation.

O: A beer that was actually worth drinking. Finally.

Boulder Freshtracks Wet Hopped Ale

Pours a clear orange color, soapy head and a solid amount of lace. Light aroma of caramel and floral hop notes. In the taste, mild orangey citrus, small bitterness, clean toffee-like maltyness and an even balance. Hops could stand to be more intense or at least noticeable. Mouthfeel is on the light side of medium bodied, and fairly smooth with delicate carbonation. Overall, a pretty decent ale, but kind of bland.
