The Town Pump poured a copper color with a frothy white head that went to a thin film and laced the glass.
Its aroma was grassy, citrus, sprucey hops.
The flavor was a little sweet initially with a piney hoppy finish, and a sticky bitter aftertaste. It had a good medium bodied mouthfeel.
Overall, this was a decent APA - kind of reminiscent of Hazed & Infused. I wonder if this is dry hopped as well.

This one was available at the brewery today so I picked up a growler. I always get this one when I'm at the Town Pump in Old Town Ft. Collins but's a special treat to enjoy one at home.
Pours from the growler with very little head, low retention, no lacing. It has a red/gold color and excellent clarity.
Aroma is nicely hopped. It has spicy, floral, and sweet notes.
Flavor is just right in terms of the bitter/sweet balance. It has a nice level of hopiness for a pale ale. The hops are grassy but in a fresh and pleasant way.
Mouthfeel is very smooth and drinkability is high. It's best straight from the tap but a growler is the only way to take some home.

Poured on tap into a half pint nonic glass at Odell's tasting room in Fort Collins. From notes.
A very opaque and pale amber body, with a combination of fast and slow rising carbonation, particularly on one edge. A light soft off white collar is presented, not too large, but inviting.
Nose has a light grainy sense, hints of flour. A perhaps mild herbal hop is peaking through.
Taste hits with a hop pine at first in the mid palate, with a light lingering bitterness. Finishes clean, but also brings a bit of oil density from a hop angle. As it warms, hints of tea and orange perkalate all over, there's a chewy yeasty character to this beer also, kind of... "stanky?". Lively crisp carbonation matching the clean feeling.
Overall pretty solid pale ale and very drinkable too.

On tap at Odell Brewing.
Pours with a 1 finger almost perfectly white head, with good consistent lacing.
Smells of dried fruit, grain, biscuit, and a hint of grassy hops.
Tastes raisiny, grainy, and roasty.
Tight, dry, clean finish and low carbonation.
Overall this was okay, but nothing special at all. Didn't hate it, but wouldn't choose to drink it again.

Reviewed from notes. On tap at the brewery in August 2009.
Pours a light amber color with a bit of a white head. The nose brings some floral hops as well as a bit of spice. Nice combination. The taste is a bit plain with some moderate bread and caramel flavors with a bit of a floral component. Slightly bitter feel with good carbonation. Drinks fairly well but nowhere near their IPA.

The beer pours a gold color with a white lace head. The aroma is good. It has a nice pale malt scent with some bitter hop aroma. The taste is average. It has a grainy pale malt flavor that finishes musty and bitter. The mouthfeel is decent. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a decent APA, but the musty character has to go. Until then, it's one and done for me.

Had this one on tap at the Odell Brewery in Fort Collins. Poured a nice light amber color, with a decent white head. Aromas of biscuit, sweet malt and light hops. Light bodied and crisp, with flavors of biscuit, sweet malts and just a hint of citrus.

M - Nothing exceptional...just right
D - Would have sat there all day if we hadn't been entertaining guests
