Ooh, a new Boulder beer. Always down for that.

This is an easy drinking ale. Plenty of interesting character on it, but nice and steady and in no ways obnoxious. Hops bring out a perfect balance of character. I like this ale a lot. It could easily be a regular beer. Very well made.

Draught into shaker pint, two finger off-white head, amber color, mild carbonation

Smells: Pine, grain, hops, wet leaves, light grass

Taste: Pine, floral hop, sharp finish

Mouthfeel: mild

Overall, this is not too bad of a beer, highly sessionable. My second sortie to explore this brewery. If I wasn't pleased with other offerings I'd go for this.

Brewed for a Music Festival in Colorado, release dated May to September 2011 so I was very surprised to find this in New Haven, Connecticut. This pours a nice amber color, two finger head. Hops are slight and bitter, mostly malty taste.

Nice beer to kick off a Sunday....could see myself going back to this over the summer.
