I was very fired up to try this pale ale when I learned it had my two of my favorite hops in it (Citra and Simcoe). Then I was let down when I first had it as I expected it to be a juicy citrus forward apa...it is not...in fact it is more of an English style pale ale in my opinion...very strong with the caramel/toffee malt impression....the hops are very secondary and do impart more of an apa touch with some sweeter citrus but this is very light and not a strong take on the hops at all.
With that said....while I expected something totally different this is still a decent drinker and above average.

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.
