Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.
Crazy Mountain is the place to be; Mountain Livin' is the life for me. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sunset amber topped by a finger of glowing off-white foam. The nose comprises lightly-sweet caramel, celery, light leek, mild grass, and a hint of flowers. The taste holds notes of grass, the rindiest part of the grapefruit rind, celery, light tomato, and a hint of orange peel for the sake of it. The vegetal nature and strength of the bitterness don't do anyone any favors. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, I can't say this stuff is anywhere near my favorite pale ale, mostly due to the overly vegetable-medley tack the hops decided to take.

A) Pours with a finger thick head, slowly settles leaving a sticky lacing along the side of the glass. Slightly hazy bronze colored body. Sticky lacing on the drink down.
S) Citrus aroma. Slightly piney.
T) Hop bite is overbearing for a pale ale. The subtle malt helps to bring some semblance of balance. Piney.
M) Fizzy. Medium body on the lighter side. Chalky finish.
O) An OK pale ale.

(Served in a bowtie glass)
A- This beer pours a deep crystal clear copper color with an antique white head that last as a thin meniscus. There is a good carbonation that pops to the surface.
S- The clean aroma has some pine hop notes and a cream quality with some buttery diacetyl growing a bit as it warms.
T- The caramel malt leads to a dry buttery note in the finish with some woody hop hints mixed in. There is a spicy hop hint that lingers just a bit in the aftertaste. As the beer opens the taste turns watery.
M- The light mouthfeel has a scrubbing fizz in the finish.
O- This beer is malt forward with a hint of hops and a bit to much buttery taste with the fizz scrubbing any hops out of the finish.

A - Pours with a small head of white foam on top of a light copper colored body with good clarity. The head settles quickly but leaves nice lacing on the glass.
S - Stale, biscuity malt with some pine and spicy hop notes in the background.
T - Bready malt and caramel up front with some herbal notes in the middle. Finishes with light pine, more herbal hops, and stale malt as well as a slightly harsh bitterness.
M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a dry finish.
D - Not particularly good. it tastes old, but since there is no date, I'm forced to assume that the brewer wanted it to taste like this. I'm not particularly impressed with what I've had from these guys so far.
