2.68/5  rDev -20%

Pours a nice yellow and orange meld, 5/8" head on it, white, decent retention, not much in the way of lacing. Aroma, hey uh, where's the hops? Smells slightly stale, old.

Taste, mostly bitter, barely a hop or discernable malt presence here, just bitter and a little bit of cloying. Just reeks of bittering hops and no flavor or dry hops. High bitterness for no reason seems to contribute to the higher abv on the mouthfeel than there should be.

Boulder can make a decent hoppy beer, but lately, I don't know if they just dumped a lesser/older batch in Reno or what, but damn, a usually reliable brewery is becoming less so lately.

2.75/5  rDev -17.9%

Pours a dark caramel colour, with a pale coloured head, no lace. Aroma was spicy, herbal hops, some malt sweetness and a hint of nuttiness. Lightly bitter taste, some more herbal hops, and a bit of sweet malts. Somewhat of a crisp body, average.

Wasn't really digging this. Too herbal of a pale ale for my tastes and didn't really have a whole lot of character.
