Burnished copper clad in a light haze. Fluffy white head leaves moderate lace.

Aroma of earthy and citrus fresh hops upfront with light caramel and toasted bread.

Flavor much like Singletrack with a kicked up hop presence. Smooth toasted malt, bread, and biscuit malt flavors with earthy, citrus and light herbal hops.

Lighter side of medium bodied with good carbonation and a slight astringency from the fresh hops. Solid session beer.

Melony, herbal, hoppy nose. On tap, pours amber with a slight haze and a 1/2" white foam cap. Light caramel, melon with a touch of herbal to fresh vegetal lead the palate to a nice lingering hop finish. Effervescent and medium bodied.

On-tap at Boulder Beer Tap House at the Denver Airport

A: The pour is amber in color with a thin white head.

S: A very nice fruit aroma to this one. Citrus hop notes (grapefruit and orange) and a strong pineapple smell to it as well. A little bit of sweet malt to go with it.

T: Not quite as hoppy on the palate. Lots of citrus still, though. A bit of floral hops and a bit more in terms of pine bitterness. A bready malt sweetness with a bit of toasted malt.

M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation.

O: A beer that was actually worth drinking. Finally.

Boulder Freshtracks Wet Hopped Ale

Pours a clear orange color, soapy head and a solid amount of lace. Light aroma of caramel and floral hop notes. In the taste, mild orangey citrus, small bitterness, clean toffee-like maltyness and an even balance. Hops could stand to be more intense or at least noticeable. Mouthfeel is on the light side of medium bodied, and fairly smooth with delicate carbonation. Overall, a pretty decent ale, but kind of bland.
