12 fl oz. can with no apparent freshness information present. Excited to try this beer, and it is my third review of a beer in a can!

Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.

A - Pours a wonderful clear ruby copper looking color with about a finger of off-white sizzling foam head. Nice rings of lacing left on the glass.

S - Smells of beautiful citrus fruit hops. Peaches, grapefruit, orange. Smells very tasty. Hops sort of fade away to a biscuit malt smell as the beer sits.

T - Very interesting flavor concoction. Fruity and floral with the hops, and then dry, grassy, and earthy from the malts. Wonderful contrast of flavors is what really impresses me here. A very tasty beer.

M - Somewhat of a resinous mouthfeel, sticky with some fruit sugar type flavors. Nicely bodied, and fair level of carbonation.

Overall, a very tasty and well-crafted brew from Crazy Mountain Brewing Co. Highly drinkable, and with a nice 6.0% abv, I'm definitely glad I was able to try this beer. This was a pleasant introduction to their brewery, and I am looking forward to seeking out more of their beers.

Crazy Mountain Mountain Livin' Pale Ale ----4/5.

Poured from can to pint glass the beer pours a translucent golden amber color with a small 1 finger white head, some retention and lacing. The nose is mostly caramel malt sweet with hints of both pine and citrus hops though the hops take a backseat to the malt. The beer starts with a caramel malt sweetness on the tongue. In the middle the beer develops a mild bitterness and a more pronounced hop flavor than found in the nose. Tropical and citrusy. Finishes with a lingering mild bitterness and hint of fruit. Medium bodied and well carbonated. Finishes dry and crisp. Overall, not a bad brew. Excited to try another of Crazy mountain's beers.

Pours an apricot color,1 finger soapy white head drops off quickly,good lacing.

Aroma is underwhelming in the way of hops: straight sugary malt nose,melon & white bread.

Taste is malty, carmely, syrupy sweet, not getting that lingering hop bitterness at all,sort of a cinnamon apple pastry going on.

Mouthfeel seems medium heavy,and the carbonation is deceptively active. Malty sweetness lies atop your palate, hop presence comes in too little too late.

Overall, stop reading enticing descriptions on the side of the can/bottle: this one would have you believe it is a hop bomb when in fact it is just another malty sweet APA that offers nothing distinctive in the way of hop delivery. Not bad, but not great either: mediocre and forgettable.

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.
