An orange/tan colored pale ale, this beer has a slight chill haze and a nose that offers some citrus, bread, and caramel notes. The foam level is good and it leaves a nice amount of lacing as you consume.
This beer has a flavor profile similar to what you expect for the style. Toasted malts, biscuits, caramel, pine, and bread greet the palate first, balanced by the flavor of citrus and peppery hops in the finish. You get some earthy character along with some floral and citrus hops and some peppery spice to keep it interesting.
This pale ale isn’t an amazing representation of the style, but it isn’t too bad and it’s got enough going for it to earn a small stamp of approval. The carbonation seems a little low and the overall taste doesn’t hit it out of the park, but it’s a decent offering nonetheless.

Good beer, nice place with plenty of outdoor seating. The interior ceiling could use some work, as it is just unfinished drywall making the place feel like it is in progress. I would almost rather see exposed framing than unfinished drywall, but hopefully they will improve it. The location is easily accessible right off of I-70 in Edwards. Great stop on the way to or from the mountains.

Pours a very cloudy, amber color. Looks like honey. Very untypical for a Pale Ale. Thin foamy heady with very good amount of lacing around the sides of the glass that persists through drinking. Strong citrusy, piney smell. Can tell from the smell that it is a very hoppy beer. When tasting, you get a hint of pine with a strong citrus flavor throughout. Great hoppy finish with a hint of caramel at the end. Never heard of this brewery before, but if all their beers are like this, I will definitely try some more of them.

Gold to amber color. Nearly clear. Decent head that leaves plenty of webby lace on the glass.
Plenty of caramel aroma. Sweet with little hop to counterbalance the nose.
Better hop presence but the sweet (crystal?) malt is pretty strong. The body is rich, particularly for a pale ale. The finish is very long lasting. Not much hop but it lingers a very long time.
This is an interesting beer. I find it to be a bit too sweet for my tastes, but I do appreciate the complexity of the beer.
