Had on tap at McLoughlin's pub in LoDo during the Democratic National Convention 2008.
I really should have gotten around to rating this one earlier, it was really good. I have heard rumors that this beer is a pellet hop version of fresh hop pale ale, I would not be all too surprised if this is true.
A-Decent clarity for a dry hopped beer. Rich amber hue, dense white head that gave way to a semi-oily skim. Great lacing.
S-Tons of citrus, a bit of evergreen and sweet fruits with a slight hint of sweet cereal grains.
T-Layers of hop bitterness and aroma are held together nicely with a toasty malt back bone. Aroma comes though in the palate.
M-Semi-oily, viscous but has a nice amount of gas to wash down nicely.
D-Very high, a great complex brew that is easily sessionable.
Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the Great Divide tap room.
A: Pours a nice amber hue with a solid one finger head. Nice retention with sheet lacing left behind.
S: Nice sweet malt aromas made up mostly of caramel. A liberal amount of hops were in fact added coming off with hints citrus and floral tones.
T: Very much like the aroma. Sweet caramel malt with a blast of C hops. Nice citrus flavor in the finish with a perfect amount of bite. They kept this one simple.
M: Medium in body, smooth with wonderful carbonation.
D: Very drinkable. A bit lighter than most GD beers but just as tasty.

On tap at the Falling Rock. This was a special brew to commemorate the 2008 DNC. Both my friend and I suspected that this might just be a dry-hopped DPA but after tasting, I'm not so sure. It was orange with a sticky white head. It smelled faint and kinda like DPA. The taste however was a hoppy American pale, maybe cascade hops? Either way, nice to see local breweries doing one-offs.
