I really enjoyed this one. Not to mention how great it is that they opened up a restaurant inside Terminal A at Denver International Airport!! And the good thing about DIA is that no matter what terminal you are in, you can travel to other terminals without having to leave and go through security again. So a great place to check out some beer on your layover. I asked the beer on tap there is brewed from the Downtown Denver Chophouse location. Anyway;

A - clear gold
S - Piney, clean, slight sweetness and hop florals.
T - Really nice bitter. Also has great flavor too. You get a little of the pine and a bit of the malt. Definitely a real nice classic pale ale that fits within the definition of the style.
M - Nice, bitter, some body and lingering complexity
D - Great. Decent bitterness and interest especially at the front.

A very well crafted beer.

This beer enjoyed in the Denver Airport. The beer pours a clear amber color with a finger of tan head that laces and retains well. The aroma has notes of earthy and piney hops as well as some bready characteristics. The flavor starts with the bready notes and then has hints of citrusy and spicy hops, while finishing with a buttery taste. The mouthfeel is somewhat slick and watery. Overall not the best but not the worst pale ale I have ever had.

A: Pours a dark copper/reddish/orange color. A minimal white head that leaves light lace.
S: Floral, grassy, citrus hops up front. A malty sweetness lingers. Simple and enjoyable.
T: Follows the nose. Pretty hops forward. Grassy and floral hops. Bread and biscuit for balance.
M/D: A little lighter body than I would like. Good carbonation. Easy to drink. Something to quaff at the brewpub.

Pretty good. One of the best that I had at the brewpub. Something that I would recommend if you make a visit.

On tap at the Chop House at Denver International Airport. Goldenrod color, good head, really good lacing. Aroma is a bit of honey, malt, slightest hint of hops. Flavors USA malty pale ale with bitterness on the finish. Not really my bag but a decent beer to drink while waiting for a plane.

This is a disappointing beer.

Pours clear with a slight head. Smell is clean and malty with flowery hops. Flavor is malty, bready and carmelly, with clear amarillo hops.

So far so good. But then a strange sourness comes up on the finish, completely marring the experience.

This beer starts good but ends badly.

Poured a clear amber with thin white head, OK retention and some good lacing. Smells of caramel, grainy malts, grass, and floral hops. Tastes of pineapple and tangerine up front briefly followed by caramel and toasted grains with a grassy finish. Medium light in body, OK carbonation. Grainy with a mild bitterness, easy to drink, but not something I would rush out to get again. When in the mood for a sorta hoppy beer and eating at the Chophouse, then it's pretty much what to go for.
