Pours copper and hazy.
Small head. Lacing looks good.
Smells faint. Malt, bread and a hint of fruit and hops, but nothing too noticeable.
Tastes like a malt/hop blend that has a nice bitterness, but not much character to speak of as far as what is jumping out. Caramel. Light in flavor.

Appearance: This is a pale ale? Looks like a rustic amber with lots of yeast suspended in it. Great lacing as well, but that comes after the thick tan foam disappears.

Smell: Sweet caramel, marshmallows, pine, and flowers. Great Colorado scent.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Pine...and pineapple. Very unique. Some toasted pine nuts as well. Very enjoyable. Crisp mouthfeel that is very active. A tad thin at times.

Overall Drinkability: An incredible ale.

12 fl oz. can, with this six pack labeled best by January 24, 2013. My second beer from Ska Brewing Co., the other being Ska Brewing Modus Hoperandi. Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.

A - Aggressive pour yields two fingers of beige off-white bubbly head on top of a dark burnt orange, verging on ruby, colored body. Lots of fine sediment suspended in the glass. Looks decent enough. Some nice big scattered sheets of lacing.

S - Smell is of light grapefruit & pine needles, paired with a bready biscuit malt counterpart.

T - Taste follows the nose pretty well; the hops have faded some, and where they were once more bitter they have become somewhat sweet. Still, a pleasant hop presence, not overly bitter, comprised well by the malt backbone of this beer. Caramelized malt presence is definitely noticeable.

M - Feel is sticky & bitter, via the hop presence. Some green apple skin sweetness lingering.

Overall, a refreshing, modest pale ale, with a nice drinkable 6.10% abv. Definitely a beer you could drink in the summer, although this is their winter offering. Succeeds as a somewhat mild American pale ale, although I remember it being much more hoppy when it was fresh. Either way, it is a beer I will have again.
