Opened 12 fl oz bottle (bottled 10/07/08), poured into Nonic glass.
Very little head development, but forms a layer of lace across top of glass and lace clings to sides. Brew is a translucent amber color with bubbles/particles in suspension (cool).
Smells like pineapple, malts and slight green herb smell. Taste is hoppy but not overly so. Some citrus/pineyness on palate, but not a strong hop as I am use to with American IPA. Beer is good BUT I noticed something that I have never tasted in beer before. Call me strange but I taste a slight "Alka-Seltzer" finish on the brew. It only last a second and isn't unpleasant, but It is definitely there. I was excited about drinking a beer from one of my favorite mountain ranges, but this didn't live up to my expectations. Granted, I've probably had 10 score beers that were not this good.
All in all, not bad but not outstanding.
