Pours golden color with small foamy head. There is very minimal head retention and small amount of lacing on the side of the glass (not any standard beer glass, though). Citric, piney aroma. Can detect mild hops. Not overpowering. Malty taste up front with mild hop bitterness. There is a pronounced piney taste. Citrus flavor at the end. Not a bad beer. I have to thank my brother in law for bringing this down from Colorado. Maltiness is a little light but over all decent.

A thanks goes out to the legendary woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a deep golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, very hoppy. Taste is a bit subdued compared to the smell. Lots of hops, some bitterness, mild citrus, a bit of pine. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

a great great brew here, by far the best ive had from eddyline. really impressive here. pours mostly clear and quite pale yellow straw color. there is a lively inch of bubbly froth on top, rising above the rim of my glass, and with good retention. the nose is light, german pils malts and American wheat if I had to guess. it smells grassy and fresh, lightly sweet, summery. it also smells well hopped, and the can reads el dorado hops, a variety I don't know much about. the first sip turns into an almost chug, this beer is high in refreshment. real light grain profile lets the delicate hops shine. fruity juicy, fresh squeezed tasting hops, hints of honeydew melon and pineapple in the finish, subtle, but there with the balancing bitterness. great combination of flavors, I cant believe how much I like this after how pedestrian their other beers have been. easy drinking for 6% abv, im crushing these like they are half that. love the format too, a six pack of pint cans, that's what Im talking about! its also the perfect dose of this real enjoyable session brew. light in body, big in carbonation, huge in overall appeal. I will be buying more of this! also a nice compliment to a from scratch chicken tikka masala!

Bought at Little's Wine and Liquor store. Poured into a pint
A&S: Very lively almost transparent yellow colored beer. A quickly fading fizzy white head that surprisingly leaves more lacing then you would expect. Not very powerful aroma, but it does contain modest portion of piney and citrus hops. Has a touch of a malty backbone.
T&M: Nothing super intense, but mostly comprising of piney hops. Very slight bitterness in the finish. Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel wise. Not a whole lot of taste lingering after the sip is over with.
Overall: Very easy to drink. Fits the style well and rings up at a pretty decent price (little over 12 bucks for a sixer of 16oz cans). Good for a warm summer day. Would recommend and look forward to seeing what else this company has to offer.

I CAN't believe not only how many new beers for The CANQuest (TM) that I have found, but also how many do not already exist on this site! This Colorado excursion has definitely been one for the record books and thanks to The Old Lady for enticing me to come out for a visit using her feminine wiles to their utmost potential.
From the CAN: "Colorado Pale Ale" [using their state "C"]; "International Style Ple Ale Gold Medal Winner 2012"; "To find our brewery and run the river, please visit www.eddylinepub.com and www.whitewater.net"; "A bold easy drinking Pale Ale bursting with Amarillo, Cascade and El Dorado hop aromas".
The Old Lady has left for work and so I am left to my own devices. Hoo hah! The Crack released some beautiful hop aromas and my mouth was watering like a spigot had just been energized. She doesn't really dig me doing an inverted Glug because she feels that it may stir up lees and reduce clarity unneccesarily. Hey, if the brewery is CANcerned about after-market goings-on, put directions for deCANting on the CAN! Tow fingers of rocky, French Vanilla-colored head was the result and now the room smelled like I had been spraying hops air freshener. Color was a deep golden-yellow with NE-quality clarity and there, suddenly, were my boys - Croesus, Mammon and King Midas, all fighting for a taste. SRM = 6. Nose was minty grapefruit and I am now curious about those El Dorado hops. Mouthfeel was soft, unusual for the style and the flavors were riotous. I was getting spearmint, peppermint, grapefruit and graham crackers! What?!? I kid you not. It is rare that I am rocked by a new beer, but it is obvious why they won a gold medal. Finish was more minty than anything else and it had a mellow semi-dry finish.
