look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Nice big off white head settles into a decent lacing above a thick solid particle filled honey colored pale ale.

A light but rich floral hops aroma accented with a light pine hops and just a hint of caramel malts coming through.

A light pale taste with a light citrus and light floral taste with some bitterness coming through.

A bitterish dry aftertaste on this medium bodied beer.

Really a light taste to this pale ale, it may serve well as a cross over beer for those who drink those cursed light American lagers.

Clear amber and little visible carbonation. Fair to poor head retention. Caramel aroma with a touch of pine resin and berries. Very soft up front, particularly for a bottled beer. Honey and light caramel in the middle with a bitter back end. Very well balanced. Body is a bit on the chewy side, but not to heavy.

Poured this 22 oz. brown bottle into a Sam Adams glass. No date. The body was cloudy orange/gold. A white head left fine lacing and a cap remained throughout.

Smell was caramel sweetness. Oranges. Floral. Moist grain or bread dough. Lots of aroma here.

Taste was pithy bitterness. Thankfully this one is not as sweet as the aroma would have you think. There was a long aftertaste of pink grapefruit. Overall this one is rather balanced but tips toward the bitter side.

Mouthfeel was slightly thinner than medium. Modest carbonation. A little silky.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours an effervescent amber with 2+ fingers of creamy beige head. Superior lacing & above average head retention

S: Piney & citrussy hops & a touch of breadyness

T: Breadyness, piney hops & some grapefruity hops as well up front. Slight toffee flavor as this warms along another wave of grapefruit & a kiss of pine, plus some dryness & more breadyness. Finishes with much hoppyness, more dryness & some hints of honey & pineapple. Almost pulled a 4.5

MF: Chewy with subtle carbonation, very nice balance, really smooths out as this warms, a bit of stickyness in the finish

Drinks easy for the abv & style. A nice take on the style, glad to see durango getting in touch with their inner hophead!
