I had this on draft at the Falling Rock Tap House in Denver yesterday. it has been since the '10 EBF since I have had it.

Appearance: one inch head, amber golden yellow, carbonation looks great, and there was nice lacing on the glass all the way down.

Smell: citrus, grapefruit, tangerine, some pine, and toffee and caramel notes from the malt.

Taste: all the scents above blended nicely. The bitternessblends very well with the sweet malts.

Mouthfeel: medium carbonation, smooth, medium bodied, very easy to drink, delicious, and a little chewy.

Overall: This beer is as good as I remember it from almost two years ago. Extremely happy I was able to find it here in Denver. Might have to go back to Falling Rock to get another.
