Poured from a pint can into a shaker. A moderate pour produces a good two inches of frothy, sticky, white head. The beer is a pale amber color and quite hazy, with medium carbonation.

Plenty of pine and citrus on the nose, but you can smell the rich caramelly malt. Quite malty on the palate, with the citrus-pine kept within reasonable bounds. Despite this, lemon, spice and grassy hop notes still prevail, with a lingering bitterness evoking citrus rind. The mouthfeel is full and creamy, inviting slow, savoring sips.

You can't go wrong with a beer from this brewery, at least the few cans that I've tried. I have not been to northwestern Montana in awhile (unless you count Missoula), and need to road trip up that way, with this brewery on the itinerary. They have a satellite eating-drinking establishment in Missoula that serves their beers. The two times I've been there, they were so busy that we're forced to go elsewhere simply because their staff is overwhelmed. Of course, being tour-ons from Butte, we're there at busy times (Griz games).

Bravo also to this brewery for making their product available in cans, which are better for the environment.
