From my mom on her recent visit to CO.

Poured from a 12oz can, no #freshbeer info.

Copper-colored body, 2-3 fingers worth of foam, tightly latched onto glass, thin rings left on the glass. Sweet grapefruit aroma but dry with assorted citrus fruit. Flavor is much the same with grapefruit rind and pulp taking center stage. Not very bitter surprisingly enough. Good, missing a bit oomph for me to rate it higher but i'd have this again.

From a can poured into a weizen glass.

A - Appearance is very odd for a pale ale; very dark ruby with hints of brown. Good looking, but very interesting for an APA.

S - Smell is kind mild hops with a hint of clove

T - Taste is more enjoyable than the smell. Decent amount of hop presence with a mildly bitter finish. A bit of pine and light fruits.

M - Mouthfeel is decent and the carbonation is on point for the style.

O - Overall I think that Ska can make a great hoppy beer. This one is not quite as good as Modus, but it's a solid little brother to it.

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.
