Backlogged review from camping in St. Mary, MT. Full notes taken on my phone.
A- Slightly cloudy golden body poured from the 12oz bottle to a goblet. A white cap builds to about one finger with a foamy thick texture. Decent retention leads to a thick frothy ring dropping sheets and rings of lace on the glass.
S- Probably just about equal balance of hops and malts for me here. Hops are spicy, floral, earthy with a touch of fruit. Malts give biscuit and pale caramel notes.
T- Hops gain an edge here and soak the taste buds with floral and spicy notes with hints of citrus, earth and grass beyond that. This is balanced by cereal grain, biscuit, pale caramelized and slight malt sweetness. Just a bit of fruit from the yeast.
MF- Light bodied with a foamy texture with any agitation. Carbonation at a medium high level and a medium spicy bitterness coats the palate in the finish.
Solid pale ale that brings a solid dose of floral and spicy notes rather than the intense fruity and citrus bombs that trend today. Spicy hops balance nicely with the malts used for a base.
