Good to have bro-in-laws in high places - like the Rocky Mountains.

Poured from the can into a pint glass the way it was intended. Visualize a clear light scattering golden yellow capped with nearly two fingers of mountain snow white bubbles. Lacing is scant and delicate.

Although the aroma is not massive and in your face, it is pleasant. Cupping the glass allows me to capture the citrus fruit, banana, and floral hops and forces them to billow up to the nose.

Well balanced flavors here. Sweet malty caramel backbone flanked by citrus orange and lemon balanced by a mild and floral and spicy hop tang. Some sweet banana lingering with a dry but refreshing finish. Love this. What a great break from monster beers and nuclear hop bomb assaults!

Medium body with ample carb and dry finish hits the spot. All this and somewhat velvety.

I love this brewery. I love this beer for what it is and what it isn't. I must get more as Spring arrives.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #41 (Jun 2010):

More craft in cans! Not as crisp as expected, nor is the head as large as expected, but nearly clear and pretty smooth. Doughy malt and citric zest-like hops in the nose. Bitterness is modest and balancing at first, but sip after sip, it tingles and coats more. Fine and clean alcoholic ester rides along with that hop character. A bit raw, but relatively clean. Maltiness ranges from grassiness to a nutty, bready flavor. Brewed to style rather than trying to be something it is not. Defining canned craft in a great way!
