I did not enjoy this Pale Ale. Felt it left a bad taste in my mouth and one of the few beers I have dumped.

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.

Poured a dark straw color with a small white head.

Not a lot of nose to this one. A little bit of caramel with a hint of earthy hops.

Hops come out a bit more in the taste with a very piney presence. A little bit of caramel as well.

Mouthfeel is too light. Good carbonation.

Mediocre offering from a brewery that is never really bad, but not good either.
