This blessed, coppered colored ale lends it’s hue to hearty pale ale malts and hand selected specialty grains. Glacier hops balance the wort resulting in  hoppy, and earthy flavors which compliment the core beer base.

12 oz bottle was poured into a standard glass that was the only thing available in this condo.

Appearance: This beer poured a minimal head that has reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Some lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Fruity, caramel and bready malts, and citrus hops.

Taste: Pretty standard pale ale. The bready and caramel malts balance out the citrus flavors and tingly hop bitterness. The glacier hops are nice.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, tingly bitterness, medium bodied, medium carbonation, a little dry, and easy to drink.

Overall: Pretty nice pale ale. I enjoyed this one a lot.

No head on a murky brownish orange body. Orange peel, earthy hops, hint of lemon aroma. Flavor is more resiny and metallic with hints of orange and lemon citrus. Pretty simple overall and borderline drinkability. Medium body and moderate to high carbonation. Not much to say about this one.

Pours an attractive golden amber in the glass. Average head and lacing. Hops in the nose but not especially fragrant.

Some of the browned biscuit taste. A touch of darker malt with a fain winey flavor. The carbonation and mouthfeel are well, beery. Slightly sharp with a hint of pepper. Rather thin. Quite a bitter aftertaste that lingers long.

This stuff is just plain bitter without much else of interest. For the bitter enthusiast, this will do. From the 12 oz bottle bought at Grapevine Liquors in Denver.
