on tap at hawthornes in philly

Pours a slightly hazed amber color with some lighter golden hues. Tuft of white head rests on top throughout most of the pour, leaving patches and rings of lacing on the glass.

Soft herbal hop bitterness in the nose with a touch of pine. Hint of orange peel with a nice maltiness with bread crust. Faint caramel sweetness too.

Balanced bitterness up front with pine and a light touch of citrus. Bready and caramel malt backbone with some residual sweetness. Few hints of orange peel and fruit sweetness as well. Decent balance between the hop and malt flavors. Finishes a little dry and bitter, but still pretty crisp.

Medium body, decent carbonation, crisp and pretty refreshing. I like the fresh hop take on the amber ale, the malt and hop balance was pretty decent. I'd probably drink this again if I ran into it somewhere. (863 characters)

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. (234 characters)

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. (562 characters)

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. (452 characters)
