Used to be one of my absolute favorites to celebrate a a hard day of back-country skiing/ snowboarding ( did I say hard...fun as hell, I meant...hard work, as I hike to earn my turns). Anyway, I believe that I hadn't had it for about five years and it just wasn't what i remember. Good but not great.

My college roommate’s favorite brewer - they make a great session IPA too.
A: Lasting head over a deep amber body that leaves sheet lacing .
4.25
S: Too laid back. Pale malt and grassy hop, with malt dominant. 3.5
T: Even handed pale ale that majors in chewy caramel malt and is balanced by a sweet, grassy, almost sun-baked prairie hop. 4
MF: Fluent, quenching, balanced by medium feel and clean, crisp finish, 4

One the most pleasant pale ales in the world. Satisfying without being over done in any way. Rivals the best.

Pours into a pint glass from bottle at a local hotel where I was traveling to. Nice golden Amber color with some lacing and a head that fades quick. Abv isn't to high and not a lot of hops but a nice drinkable ale especially after a long day of traveling.
